MEMPHIS, TN – August, 2016 – Memphis Metro Volleyball Club and SportsRecruits have reached an agreement on a club integration, it was announced today. As part of the agreement, Memphis Metro staff and players will receive access to the innovative suite of tools provided by the recruiting platform.
“We hope to oversee more closely every stage of recruitment of our players,” said Juraj Okolicany, Director. “If some players are behind in contacting coaches or updating their profiles with club teams, tournament schedules, academic progress, or ACT and SAT scores, we’ll be able to help them.”
“We hope the platform will help players to create better profiles and keep all information (academic and sport-related) in one place,” added Okolicany. “That makes it easier for college coaches to find and connect with our student-athletes.”
Okolicany knows that players and club staffers are not the only parties involved in the recruiting process. Parents play a key role, too.
“SportsRecruits will be a rich tool for parents to research the schools with their kids,” Okolicany noted.
Using Advanced School Search, families can filter colleges for attributes like athletic division, size, academic rigor, acceptance rate, and distance from home.
“The ability to find schools at different distances from Memphis will help families narrow their target list to the ‘right fit’ schools,” remarked Okolicany. “They can find the best school with the preferred size and competition level within a comfortable distance from home.”
When players find the right schools for them, they can contact coaches at those schools within a few taps.
“SportsRecruits makes it easy to connect with coaches,” added Okolicany. “They will have more realistic information about the SAT and ACT requirements the schools have, and they’ll have information about school size, financial support options, and other general info.”
“We are excited! It will make the recruiting process easier to manage for our staff.”
– Juraj Okolicany, Director
SportsRecruits will provide Memphis Metro players and staff with information about every school in the college volleyball universe.
“We will be better informed about player communication with coaches, so we can advise them,” said Okolicany. “For instance, if a player is communicating with a particular school, we’ll know that player is interested and can advise them on the realities of landing a scholarship there.”
“Families will be better educated about their choices and chances to achieve success,” said Okolicany. “Information about colleges will be important for our staff as well.”
“Families will be better educated about their choices and chances to achieve success.”
