I received an email asking me to complete a SportsRecruits Profile for an upcoming event/coaches book. What does this mean?
What is EventBeacon?
EventBeacon is an online platform that allows college coaches to seamlessly access the player information of any athletes competing during an event. Once they arrive at a particular game, they are able to pull up the rosters of each team playing, and view the SportsRecruits profiles of any athlete they choose.
Free vs Paid SportsRecruits Users
EventBeacon pulls information directly from your SportsRecruits profile, regardless of whether you are a paid or free member. If you pay for an individual membership, or receive one through your club or high school, all you have to do is make sure the existing information on your profile is up to date!
If you are new to SportsRecruits, we create a free profile for you ahead of the event. You can navigate to the “Profile” tab, then select “Edit” from the sidebar on the left side of the screen. You’ll be able to input all of your relevant athletic, academic, and personal information for college coaches to see. Your information will be protected so that only college coaches are able to securely access it.
If you are accessing a free version of the SportsRecruits platform, you’ll see call to actions that read “Get Verified.” Getting verified is part of the process of becoming a paid user on SportsRecruits, and having full access to the tools on the platform including the messaging system. You do NOT need to get verified in order to have you information be accessible to college coaches at an event. You can learn about getting verified here.
