CHICAGO, Illinois (PRWEB) June 13, 2016
The new strategic alliance between Parisi, NCSA Athletic Recruiting and Box Command just made the dream of being recruited by colleges and universities more real for high school athletes around the country. This alliance creates a “one-stop-shop” for high school athletes and their parents on getting recruited, ensuring an athlete reaches his/her top potential and catching the eye of recruiting coaches.
“The synergies between Parisi, Box Command and NCSA Athletic Recruiting are perfect. It opens another exciting door to student-athletes and parents on how to stay competitive in the ever-changing recruiting process,” said Izell Reese, Executive Vice President at NCSA.
NCSA has long been the leader in educating and preparing athletes for the best recruitment exposure possible. In addition to the opportunities to connect with college coaches through the largest recruiting network, NCSA assists student-athletes in all aspects of the path-to-college process, including GPA, academic test scores, social awareness, athletic performance and more. The newly cemented relationship with the 94-plus Parisi Speed Schools across the United States provides NCSA with two critical pieces to recruitment: 1) The ability for athletes to test critical drills specific to their sport and have the results verified, so that recruiting coaches can depend on the scores, and 2) A resource for athletes who need to improve their scores and gain a competitive advantage through cutting-edge sports performance training, for which Parisi is the industry leader.
“Parisi is excited to be in the company of these esteemed partners because it helps us all to better fulfill our mission to helping young athletes make their dreams come true. I couldn’t be more pleased,” said Paul Staples, PhD, Parisi Franchise Systems, CEO.
The third and equal component of this partnership is the technology company, Box Command. Much of Box Command’s business, as well as its passion, is in the area of sports management and performance tracking. BoxCommand’s enterprise cloud platform brings the technology to support verified scores, provide leader boards that rank results of all NCSA athletes across the nation, coordinate events, as well as the ability to make many other future endeavors possible.
In addition to the aforementioned services, the partnership will also focus on offering events throughout the year to showcase athletes within their chosen sport. These high visibility events will also provide critical parent education on how today’s recruiting process works, among other educational opportunities.
