The site is live!!

We are officially launched!

Come visit Where Coaches and Recruits Connect!  to check out our brand new website.

As with everything we do, our purpose is to help high school golfers understand and participate in the recruiting process. We strive to accomplish this by working closely with those who have registered with the site and to provide them introductions to a variety of college programs, thus increasing the chances of finding a good fit.

By registering on the site, potential recruits will enter important resume information into their profile, keep track of all their tournament results in one place, keep track of all their upcoming tournaments and even download videos of their swings, club play and short game.They can tell us about their possible college program interests, and will have a place to display most every piece of information a coach may be interested in knowing.

Coaches who register for free get an opportunity to search for players by a variety of criteria, and tag individual players if they have an interest in watching them. They get exposure to players outside their normal recruiting region, and they get to learn of players who might be interested in playing for their program, which allows them to better target the use of their recruiting budget. In short we are a great tool to enhance recruiting for their programs.

Early success for the site!

We love that already more than 20% of the golfers at the tournament have trusted us to begin to help them with their recruiting needs, and that more than 50% of the coaches who attended are already registered with us for updates. We are working hard to increase those numbers daily, but the early success has us very enthusiastic.

Our approach

By looking at the various ways that coaches recruit, we think our recruits will get a chance to benefit from them all. We've provided a tournament for face to face exposure, and now we are providing them a way to centralize their recruiting profile while maximizing their potential to many possible college programs at the same time.

But that's not all - we are also working on camps and combines (more to come in the future on those.), and for those just starting out, we will be holding seminars in the Kansas City area this Fall and Spring. Come check us out!

The future is exciting for our golfers and for Where Coaches and Recruits Connect!
