The Power of Simplicity, Gamification, and Empowerment in Recruiting

Today we're talking to André Lennox, recruiting coordinator at Los Angeles Volleyball Academy (@lavacademy), or LAVA for short. Recruiting is a complex topic, and I know a lot of listeners are extremely motivated, extremely serious people - if you're a club staffer, you want to make sure your club is setting your players up for success, if you're a parent, you want to know what works, if you're an athlete, you want to DO what works. I've known André for about a year, and I've wanted to get him on this podcast for a while now, because more than anyone I've talked to, he's a guy who has figured out the recruiting process. He's cracked it. In this episode, we talk about how LAVA uses gamification to get players to take ownership over their own recruiting processes, we talk about the small things clubs can be doing to help their athletes get to the next level, how LAVA believes in empowering their players to succeed by giving them the tools to control their own destinies.

The Power of Simplicity, Gamification, and Empowerment in Recruiting

Recruiting Advice from a DI Coach

Today we have Jordan Nies (@jordannies), veteran college coach who has dealt with the collegiate recruiting process from the other side of the table - the side with the college coaches doing the recruiting. When you look across the Internet, you'll find helpful recruiting advice. However, most information is from the perspective of the recruit. Whether the advice is from a high school coach, club sports coach or club recruiting coordinator, or even a former collegiate athlete, you rarely hear from the college coach who actually does the recruiting. You rarely hear from people like Jordan Nies. Until now. Because of NCAA rules, college coaches have to be really careful of talking to the wrong people and being accused of giving advice to companies that can be classified as "recruiting services," or in the business of acting as agents for high school players to get them into college. Because SportsRecruits is not a recruiting service - we're a SOFTWARE company - we can talk to college ...

Recruiting Advice from a DI Coach

The Three Pillars of Athletic Recruiting

Today we have Matt Wheeler (@mattwheeler), Co-Founder of the tech startup SportsRecruits, the tech startup behind therecruiting management software platform by the same name. This episode is all about breaking down the recruiting process. Here’s why this episode is so valuable: while Matt has close to 15 years of experience with recruiting, this talk isn’t just about drawing from his experience. Rather, he combines the intuition he’s gained from all that experience with real, hard, empirical data to tell you what you need to know, and he cuts out all the other BS and misinformation you’ll find elsewhere. He talks about the statistical realities of playing in college at the all levels, how many schools high school athletes should target to give themselves the best shot at overcoming the pretty steep odds; he breaks the recruiting process into three pillars: research, proactive outreach, and exposure. Most importantly, he gives you the blueprint to getting recruited. It requires a...
