Share Article

GetMeATeam is an online recruiting service that provides step-by-step guidance, resources, and support to high school athletes looking to get recruited by college coaches. The service launched just in time for the athletes who are finishing this academic year and need to start looking at various college options.

“We want to make the information available in one spot and give more athletes a chance,” said Anastasia Petukhova, the CEO and Founder of GetMeATeam.

On May 4th, 2013, launched its service to educate high school athletes on how to get recruited by college coaches. The world of college recruiting is very competitive. It is a dream of most high school athletes to be able to continue playing sports in college. It is very prestigious and fulfilling, not to mention it can pay for the college education. With over 7,000,000 high school athletes interested in playing for college, statistics show that less than 3% have a good chance to do so. It is even more difficult to receive athletic scholarships. The recruiting process is complicated and intimidating for the athletes. Most of them don’t know where to start and have an overload of information about different aspects of recruiting, which can be very confusing. Learning about rules, what to do, and how to communicate are crucial for successful recruiting. GetMeATeam provides an online service with the needed combination of tools and information that simplifies the process and can be affordable for athletes and their families. The ultimate goal of the service is to educate the athlete on what to do to get recruited.

GetMeATeam athletes subscribe to an annual membership which they can use to create their public online profile to be seen by coaches, have college and coach data, a detailed search system, personal organizer, learning videos, recruiting tasks, and have access to recruiting experts and support throughout their entire process. The service combines the athletic and academic areas of the young athletes by providing all the information needed.

“We want to make the information available in one spot and give more athletes a chance,” said Anastasia Petukhova, the CEO and Founder of GetMeATeam. “We have the online-service designed to space out the process into manageable parts and allow athletes to have everything in their hands. They are their best weapon, we are their hidden strength.”

GetMeATeam offers step-by-step guidance, video learning content, online profile, college and coach data, personal organizer, detailed search system, and access to the recruiting experts. The service is broken down into five main sections: learning, researching, communicating, organizing information, and making decisions. The final step in the process is to be offered a spot on the team, potentially along with an athletic scholarship. The recruiting experts are there along the way to provide unbiased advice and answer any questions. The annual subscription is $125. Developed by a group of former student-athletes and with the help of numerous college coaches and administrators, GetMeATeam has the winning combination of needed information and affordability.

GetMeATeam is about changing the recruiting experience to make it more pleasant and about empowering athletes to make better decisions in their recruiting process.
