Recruiting Tip #2: Write Your Bio & Choose a Profile Photo

By | Beach Volleyball Recruiting

Your athlete profile on Texas Beach Recruits provides coaches with the necessary information they need to learn more about you and evaluate you as a student-athlete. Put your best foot forward by giving coaches the most valuable information about you!

TIP:  A good profile helps coaches determine if you are a good fit for their program, both athletically and academically.  

College coaches evaluate hundreds of athletes, so when they visit your profile page they should easily be able to get a snapshot of who you are athletically and academically.
ATHLETIC INFORMATION TO INCLUDE
Including the following athletic measurements gives coaches facts about you:
– Height
– Wing Span
– Standing Reach
– Standing Jump
– Approach Jump
– Star Drill time: USA Volleyball uses the Star Drill to test quickness and agility in the sand. Watch Sara Hughes run the Star Drill and hear what she has to say about it…
Including your workout schedule could also impress coaches and give them valuable information on your work ethic. Let them know how many times a week you practice and if you are hitting the gym or working out with a strength & conditioning coach.

TIP:  Including your athletic achievements in California gives coaches a good snapshot of how you compare on a national scale.

ACADEMIC INFORMATION TO INCLUDE
Including academic information is also very important and valuable to coaches.
– GPA
– Class Rank
– PSAT, SAT, or ACT Scores
– Academic Honors
– Extracurricular Activities

TIP:  Coaches are more likely to click on your profile if you have a photo up.

CHOOSING A PHOTO
A photo is worth a thousand words! Choosing a photo that shows your face helps coaches put a face to a name. Choosing a good action shot that shows your athleticism and athletic ability could also be a good idea. It is most important to use a photo that is not blurry.

Congrats on writing your bio & choosing the perfect photo!

Remember, it is important to update your profile at least once a year.
