Hello, I'm Tim Ryerson, a former college coach, and the founder of STUDENTathleteWorld. College athletic recruiting is not just our hobby, it is what we have done for the entirety of our professional lives. We know how college coaches recruit athletes not from watching ESPN, but from having been there and done that ourselves. We designed our program with the idea to create a service that offers exactly and only what STUDENTathletes and their families need in the recruiting process, not what looks good or sells. This makes us distinctly unique from our competitors, many of whom are either not qualified to assist families, or simply run subscription model websites designed to make revenue through advertisements and clicks. We don't care about clicks, we only care about helping our athletes get recruited. We've had amazing success since we began helping athletes in 2009 because of our commitment to this fundamental concept.
Our comprehensive program includes recruiting education, personal consultation, video, college-matching, scouting, and much more. Our mission is to offer the tools STUDENTathletes need to help themselves get recruited and the guidance to help them navigate the complicated process. Our tools and guidance will assist in generating admissions, playing opportunities, and scholarships based on the STUDENTathlete's educational, personal, and athletic goals. We are dedicated to being honest, personal, and strategic-focused while assisting our STUDENTathletes in finding the best education, at the best price, that gives them the opportunity to continue to participate in the sport they love. Please explore our website and read about our background as college coaches and our personal approach to the recruiting process. After reviewing, please contact us for more information.
What about Exposure and Marketing?
The majority of our competitors, the majority of showcase events, and the majority of club teams are going to talk about EXPOSURE. It's a buzz word in youth sports. It's also a myth. If you want to get recruited by colleges and you don't happen to be in the top 1% of National athletes, you need to first target the schools that are the right fit for you, and then you need to develop recruiting relationships with those coaches. That's it! Exposure and marketing are mostly a myth perpetuated by the youth sports complex. You can't buy a scholarship. If you want to play your sport in college it is going to take an open mind, persistence, and a lot of work by the STUDENTathlete to connect and communicate with college coaches. Our program can help. However, it's not a magic wand that gets you recruited. If you are going to compete in college, YOU will get yourself recruited. We provide the TOOLS and the GUIDANCE.
The Recruiting Problem...
Every student-athlete, and his/her parents, have several questions concerning their college athletic recruitment. Am I good enough to play my sport in college and at what level? How does the recruiting process work? When and where do I begin? What’s the best way to get recruited? Since you only have one chance to do this right, you want to make sure you have the tools and the expetise necessary to get it done right.
College coaches recruit thousands of STUDENTathletes for every single position they are trying to fill. Most programs do not have the recruiting budget and resources to scout properly, especially out of state. They rely on what has worked for them in the past; focusing on programs and services they know and trust, attend games and events contests close to their college, and recruit athletes who pro-actively reach out to them.
College coaches who do attend camps, clinics, and showcases are not there to scout out new talent; they are there to observe athletes they already know. In order to be recruited by college coaches, coaches must be aware of you and your abilities. To play the odds the same way college coaches do, you need to get noticed by lots of coaches, and not just a handful. You have to actively, directly and personally show interest in the coach, his/her team, and the College/University. You can't post your profile or videos on a random website and hope a coach finds you and recruits you. If you are not receiving direct, personal, and consistent contact from college coaches then they don't know about you and you aren't being recruited.
The Recruiting Solution...
STUDENTathleteWorld can evaluate you academically and athletically, to help you target specific schools and programs that are the right fit for you. We have the tools you need to open up opportunities at every level (NCAA, NAIA, NCCAA, USCAA, JUCO) across the country. Only you can make the decision on where to compete and only college coaches can determine if you’re the right fit for their college. STUDENTathleteWorld can, however, explain the recruiting process, show you what you need to, when to do it, and give you the best tools to make it happen. Our COLLEGE MATCH program will help connect you with college coaches at the schools that match your athletic, academic, and personal goals. Our guidance will help prevent you from making the common mistakes most athletes make in the recruiting process. STUDENTathleteWorld is a simple, straightforward, inexpensive and incredibly effective program. Our process is personal and strategically-focused in order to make a significant difference in the future of the STUDENTathletes we work with.
