EventBeacon allows Event Administrators to have complete control over what appears to coaches during their event. Our platform gives users the ability to make any roster changes before or during an event, ensuring that coaches are receiving the most accurate and up-to-date information while evaluating student-athletes.
The “Athletes” tab is the main landing page when you click into your event. Here you will see every student-athlete on the roster, imported by our team at SportsRecruits. Once uploaded, you will have full control over any changes to player information, which will be immediately visible to coaches through the EventBeacon app.
Our filter tools make finding athletes incredibly easy. To search for a specific player, you can use the search bar or “Filters” drop down menu to filter by graduation year, position, or team, located right above the “Grad Year” and “Email” columns. You are also able to manually flip through each page of athletes by clicking the blue arrows to the left of the search bar.
Editing Athlete Information
Student-athlete information (Team, Jersey, Position) can be edited so that you can stay on top of any last-minute changes that happen before or on-site at an event. These edits will be visible to coaches on the EventBeacon app, keeping them in the loop. To do this, click the blue gear icon to the right of the player you want to edit and select “Edit Info”.
There will be some scenarios where data does not need to be edited, but removed entirely. Instead of manually removing data from hundreds of athletes, you are able to select multiple athletes at a time and erase the data for that column by clicking the white box to the left of each athletes’ name. Once you have selected the correct athletes, you can choose to remove their team, jersey, and/or position.
In addition to editing, you are able to manually add student-athletes to an event roster. To do so, click the blue “Add New” drop down menu in the upper right corner of the dashboard and select “Add Athlete”. This will take you to a form where you can fill out the athlete’s information, as shown below:
EventBeacon provides a superior event experience for both coaches and event administrators alike, while empowering student-athletes to take control of their recruiting experience. With access to all relevant student-athlete recruiting information in the app, coaches are able to efficiently and effectively evaluate players on-site. Similarly, event administrators are able to utilize the software to generate a coaches book in seconds, while also being able to make any roster or event changes immediately visible to coaches. The more efficient the coach’s experience, the more exposure for athletes, and the more exposure for athletes, the more successful an event.
