Manager, Media Relations and Publications
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (August 18, 2010) – USA Volleyball has signed an agreement with www.VolleyballRecruits.net establishing it as “The Official Recruiting Tool of USA Volleyball.”
VolleyballRecruits.net was built to streamline the volleyball recruiting process and help USA Volleyball club and high school players maximize the exposure they receive throughout the recruiting process. Founded and built by former college athletes Chris Meade and Matt Wheeler, VolleyballRecruits.net gives a player and his or her parents a suite of online tools to manage the recruiting process while increasing the exposure they receive.
“USA Volleyball is excited about this partnership with VolleyballRecruits.net,” USA Volleyball Secretary General Kerry Klostermann said. “With its cutting edge technologies, VolleyballRecruits.net will be a great resource for any volleyball athlete aspiring to play the sport collegiately. At the same time, the tool represents a no-cost, highly efficient tool for the college coaches to view player information and video throughout the recruiting process.”
Wheeler and Meade, who also own and operate LacrosseRecruits.com, The Official Recruiting Tool of US Lacrosse, worked with USA Volleyball and consulted extensively with the coaching community to build an easy to use recruiting tool that will help high school players manage what has traditionally been a very unorganized and stressful process.
“VolleyballRecruits.net is delighted to partner with USA Volleyball,” Amanda Millard, director of VolleyballRecruits.net, said. “Whether you are a player, coach or parent, VolleyballRecruits.net is designed to make the college volleyball recruiting process more efficient. A player needs an efficient way to get his or her profile and video in front of as many college coaches as possible and a college coach needs an efficient way to view a potential recruit’s profile and video. VolleyballRecruits.net provides an online platform for both of these needs to be met.”
Players will find it easier to gain the attention of the college coaching community with the help of a VolleyballRecruits.net Recruiting Package. Once a player has his or her profile complete and video uploaded, the player simply uses a built in messaging system to distribute his or her profile and video to the college coaching community. With every NCAA Division I, II and III program as a registered user, a player can put his or her profile and video in front of any college coaching staff in a matter of minutes. Each coaching staff is then able to view the player’s profile and video with the click of a button. By making it convenient for a college coach to view a recruit’s profile, video and relevant statistics all in one online location, a recruit increases his or her odds of being noticed by college coaches.
