Reno, NV (PRWEB) November 07, 2013
Recognizing the need to educate student athletes and their parents about the college athletic recruiting process and how to build a strategy to successfully navigate it, Play Up Athletics has released a new product.
The product officially launched November 1st in Reno, Nevada and is immediately available for purchase on the company’s web site. The product, called The Athletic Edge: The Complete Guide to College Athletic Recruitment, contains (8) eight audio CD’s, a (110) one hundred and ten page workbook and a free one year subscription to College Coaches Online (an internet search site listing the contact information for all college coaches - a value of $59.95). The program sells for $197.95 plus tax, shipping, handling, and comes with a thirty day money back guarantee.
Student athletes, parents and club coaches are often uninformed, confused or misinformed about the college athletic recruiting process and how to get an athlete recruited by a college coach. This program describes the process, teaches how to take advantage of opportunities and gives a step-by-step blueprint to get an athlete to college and to play the sport they love. This innovative approach not only deals with the nuts and bolts of the recruiting process, but also the intangible qualities coaches desire in an athlete, which can be learned, perfected and used to market themselves to prospective college programs.
The Athletic Edge program advocates that the athlete take control of their recruiting experience and ultimately choose the type of college experience they want and where they want to go to school, rather than being chosen by someone else and be stuck with the college experience that someone else chooses for them. There is only one chance to get this choice right, and getting it wrong can have devastating consequences.
In the past there have been three choices when considering developing a strategy to get an athlete recruited by a college coach. The first was to do nothing, which has its obvious drawbacks. The second was to hire someone to do it for you. This is usually very expensive, gives the athlete very little input, and is less likely to get the athlete the college experience they want. The third choice is to do it yourself, which is obviously less expensive and gives the athlete and their family more input into the process, but few athletes and parents know what to do and how to do it, and end up making mistakes or getting bad advice.
The Athletic Edge was created as an attempt to give parents, athletes and club coaches a fourth choice. Chuck Lovitt, President and Coach at Play Up Athletics, says “we wanted to give athletes and their families another alternative. One that provides the quality information and exposure you would get from a recruiting service, yet gain more control of the process, at an affordable price, in some cases saving thousands of dollars, with more effective results.”
The Athletic Edge college recruitment program is affordable, effective and easy to follow. It is a step by step system to educate athletes and their families and allows them to take control of the process and choose the type of college experience they want for themselves. The Athletic Edge is available now on the Play Up Athletic website at playupathletics.com.
Play Up Athletics was founded in 2011 by Chuck Lovitt, after he had created a recruitment program for high school athletes that experienced great success in helping athletes get to college to play their sport, and prepare them for the rest of their lives. The company started out, and still specializes in, coaching individual athletes through the recruiting process, either in a group or one-on-one setting. This is the first product produced by the company.
