VolleyballRecruits is a technology solution that automatically organizes the recruiting process for club staff and players. With VolleyballRecruits, players share their athletic stats, academic transcripts, event schedule and video. The Built-In Messaging System connects the club to every college coach in the country.

Simple Organization, Direct Connection, and Player Accountability

Tuggle had been hearing from competing clubs around the country who were raving about the VolleyballRecruits platform. Country Fire management decided that it was time to find out how the platform could benefit the club.

When they did, they were sold. Tuggle cites three objectives that VolleyballRecruits will allow Country Fire to meet.

First, the platform puts Country Fire players in front of college coaches, so coaches can look at and evaluate the club’s athletes.

“VolleyballRecruits provides a centralized spot for all of our players’ data, organized in a way that makes it easy for potential colleges to see.” said Tuggle. “The platform makes it easy for college coaches to look at our players.”

Second, Tuggle realizes that recruiting is not a passive process. If players want to get recruited, they need to be proactive in reaching out to and building relationships with college coaches.

“The platform provides (staff and players) a direct connection to colleges,” he said. The platform’s Advanced School Search “will help our families determine locations, costs and program types while making decisions about what colleges to attend.”

Number three, the club will be able to see which players are working hard and building the relationships with college coaches – and which players aren’t.

“Finally, we can hold our players accountable by tracking who is engaging with the recruiting process. We’ll see which players are sending messages to college coaches, which coaches are viewing our players’ profiles, and what colleges are interested in our players.” Tuggle said.

“Country Fire is a focused, driven club from top to bottom,” said VolleyballRecruits Director, Ali Hellmuth. “They want to empower their players to get recruited to play volleyball in college, and their VolleyballRecruits integration shows they’re truly committed.”
