Atlanta, Ga. (PRWEB) November 18, 2009
High school athletes and college coaches are connecting in record numbers through beRecruited.com, which this week surpassed 10 million total connections initiated through the service, including more than 5.5 million connections in 2009.
beRecruited.com is the largest online network focused on athletic recruiting. Athletes can connect with college coaches at programs that they are interested in pursuing, and college coaches can connect with athletes whose profiles fit the academic and athletic criteria that college coach is seeking for their program.
"For athletes and college coaches that use our site, it works," said Jeff Cravens, president of beRecruited.com. "beRecruited is creating tremendous efficiency in what has traditionally been an extremely inefficient process. Approaching 6 million connections so far this year speaks volumes to the positive impact our product has on the process."
By creating a profile with beRecruited.com, high school athletes can instantly connect with registered college coaches across America. Athletes update their profiles with recent statistics, videos and photos, and college coaches can view the profiles that fit their programs and connect with the athletes. Coaches are alerted via email when an athlete fits their parameters.
The company's service is free, maintaining the founders' principle of providing a robust, cost-effective resource for athletes. For a one-time fee of $59.99 or a monthly fee of $9.99, student-athletes can enhance their profiles by becoming a deluxe-user.
