Crossfire Adds College Recruiting to Its Service Offering

 

Hello to our wonderful Crossfire family!  Today we have an important announcement:  We are adding a specific College Recruitment program to our broad base of services.  This program has several components which will be helpful in assisting the athletes who want to play in college find the right type of college for them, establish where they are in relationship to other players statistically, and market themselves to those colleges and coaches that are the best fit. 

 

The elements of this program are:

  • New recruiting software and training to help you market, create your profile page and share video, and guide you in your search;
  • The College Combine event, which will give you a benchmark of your skill sets to give to the college coaches of your choice;
  • Personal visits to area colleges
  • Discussions with College Coaches we have relationships with at large events like Boys Winter Volleyball Championships in Chicago, Qualifiers and JVA Worlds.

 

SOFTWARE

First and foremost, we're excited to announce a new integration with SportsRecruits. Crossfire is committed to helping those players in our program that have aspirations of playing in college, and so we have integrated with SportsRecruits to give our student-athletes a competitive advantage in their recruiting journeys. The SportsRecruits Recruiting Platform is a state-of-the-art recruiting software that connects student-athletes with every college coach in the country - automatically.

We are committed to guiding our student-athletes on their recruiting journeys. If you need additional help with the platform, including personal support from the SportsRecruits Customer Success team, access the Knowledge Base.

THE COLLEGE COMBINE

This is an event where we measure and benchmark your skills and provide a record for your profile help for recruiting.  There are 7 measurements that we will record and enter into your SportsRecruits profile.  Even if you are not planning to play in college, it is nice to know how you personally stack up, and would be good to have a record in case you change your mind.   

 

PERSONAL VISITS TO COLLEGES

We have spent time establishing relationships with coaches from area colleges.  If any of these colleges interest you, we are happy to facilitate a discussion or a visit with one of the coaches we know.  We have relationships with coaches from at least eight local colleges and a number of schools across the country.   We can help with an introduction, schedule a visit or arrange a meeting after an event (college coaches cannot speak to an athlete until their participation at an event, including officiating, is complete).

 

Our objective is to provide a great club experience for your athlete, and since college is on the radar for many of our players, we want to make that process as easy and effective for you as possible.  This new program will give us a clear path to achieving that goal.
