With Coaching Wall there is. Every user is able to create their own “recruitment page” to highlight the athlete’s sports journey, stats, and accomplishments and have that page viewed by hundreds of college recruiters. Perhaps more importantly, you can target specific colleges and send your recruitment page to them with a click of the mouse. From there you can easily see which colleges have actually viewed your recruitment page and take the initiative to contact them so you can start the dialogue about their interest in your student athlete for their school.
