ELLICOTT CITY, MD – June, 2016 – HCYP Patriots Fastpitch Softball and SportsRecruits have reached an agreement on a club integration, it was announced today. As part of the agreement, HCYP Patriots coaches, recruiting staff, and players will receive access to the innovative suite of tools provided by the recruiting platform.
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.
“We are excited about the opportunity to give our players access to a recruiting support tool that will help them identify the best options for playing at the college level,” said HCYP Director Bob West.
The Player-College Connection
“We met with a number of D1 and D2 College Softball Coaches to find out what they were looking for when recruiting players. Overwhelmingly we heard College Coaches want to hear from the players, not the parents and not from recruiting firms,” – Bob West, Director, Coach
HCYP 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.
“We met with a number of D1 and D2 College Softball Coaches to find out what they were looking for when recruiting players. Overwhelmingly we heard College Coaches want to hear from the players, not the parents and not from recruiting firms,” said Director Bob West.
“This platform will help the players identify the right school and provide contact information to allow them to reach out to those coaches at those schools.”
Empowering Club Staff
West, as the Director of HCYP College Softball Prospects Program, believes the platform will improve the quality of recruiting guidance he and staff will provide the club’s players.
“We plan to use the tool to track the schools our players are interested in and help plan our showcase schedule and identify opportunities for our players to work out in front of those Coaches,” said West. “This tool allows the HCYP Patriots Coaching Staff to mentor and guide the players and families through this process without being intrusive.”
