EventBeacon is a sideline evaluation tool for college coaches to use on site at recruiting events. The software syncs an event game schedule with the player information of all the athletes in attendance. Coaches can check in to a game, and see the full rosters of both teams competing to streamline their recruiting process.
What Happens After Roster Submission
After a coach submits their team roster, the athletes’ information is then integrated with our SportsRecruits platform. For athletes who already have SportsRecruits profiles, we will simply link their existing profile to the event rosters. For athletes who do not yet have a SportsRecruits profile, a free one will be created for them!
We will send an email to all student-athletes attending the event with detailed instructions about filling out their profile. Any information they include on their profile will be provided to the college coaches in attendance at EventBeacon events.
Having the entire team fill this out is crucial to making sure that the correct information is in the book for college coaches. With the EventBeacon technology, we are able to generate both paper books and a virtual coaches book that lives in the EventBeacon mobile app. This allows student-athletes to continue to update their information for the virtual coaches books even after the paper books are printed. Your athletes will have every opportunity to provide coaches with the most up to date information about themselves.
Below is a screenshot of the email that your student-athletes will receive. It would be extremely helpful if you also encourage your players and parents to make sure that at the least the essential information is filled out.
The Value of EventBeacon
EventBeacon puts student-athletes and their families in the driver's seat of their own recruiting process. As a participant in an EventBeacon powered event, you have complete control over what information is provided to college coaches. You can update this information before, during, and even after the event to ensure coaches have the most accurate info to evaluate you with.
As college coaches view your athletes' profiles from the sidelines, your athletes will be notified via text & email in real time. It is so valuable for an athlete to see which coaches were at their game. However, there are 10s of other athletes on the field that coach could have been evaluating. EventBeacon provides your athletes the transparency to know which coaches evaluated them individually.
Any information you add to your SportsRecruits profile will be available for coaches on EventBeacon. EventBeacon gives coaches access to exponentially more information than what is typically printed in a paper coaches book. Recruiting is no longer limited to the time & place of the event. Coaches can actively recruit before, during, and after an event from anywhere in the world.
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. Available in the app store today!
