DIXON, CA – December, 2016 – West Coast Impact Basketball and SportsRecruits have reached an agreement on a club integration, it was announced today. As part of the agreement, West Coast Impact Basketball staff and players will receive access to the innovative suite of tools provided by the recruiting platform.

“SportsRecruits is not your typical recruiting firm,” said Jean Gelpi, Club Director and Founder. “It is a platform that helps our athletes reach out and communicate with prospective college programs, successfully and in an organized manner.”

“SportsRecruits will make it possible for West Coast Impact to provide the elevated resources necessary to bring a successful recruiting program to our members.”

SportsRecruits is a technology solution that automatically organizes the recruiting process for club staff and players. With SportsRecruits, players share their athletic stats, academic transcripts, event schedule and video. The Built-In Messaging System connects the club to every college coach in the country.

The Search for a Unified Recruiting Solution

West Coast Impact Basketball decided to build their recruiting program on the SportsRecruits platform – rather than a recruiting service or firm – because they know college coaches want to communicate with the athletes, not proxies.

“The platform holds athletes accountable for following up on their recruiting processes,” said Jean Gelpi about the benefits of the platform. “The communication occurs between the athlete and the university, NOT a third party.”

SportsRecruits allows players to efficiently put the information college coaches need in one place, and empowers student-athletes, families and club staffers to work in tandem to be proactive in the recruiting process.

“It provides everyone the opportunity to contact and communicate with the educational programs that the athletes choose throughout their recruiting journeys,” said Gelpi. “It also provides an easy way to download videos, stats and any type of mass media communication.”

Given the fact that coaches are 3x more likely to respond to a message if the sender has a profile photo, it’s clear that the first impression matters.

Players fill a SportsRecruits profile with their athletic and academic information. They can personalize it with a profile picture, videos, and a highlight reel.

This way, players have the power to make their first contact with a coach memorable.
