Our first offering costs you $0, it’s called UniTrak.

Recruiting Rules Calendar Summary

The NCAA established new rules (April 2018) to protect elite athletes from getting bombarded with coach communications. Over time, early recruiting had become more and more popular in softball—and female sports in general—as coaches and athletes have found ways to establish contact well before the timeline set forth by the NCAA softball recruiting rules. The greater problem has been that everyone came to believe that early was good and necessary. The reality however, was that it only effected a very small group of the playing population.

To slow down the recruiting process, the NCAA released a new set of rules, effective April 25, 2018, for Division 1 schools. Softball and lacrosse now have some of the strictest rules around early recruiting, preventing D1 coaches from communicating with recruits, their parents, their current coaches or any other third-party about their recruiting before September 1 of the athlete’s junior year of high school.

Additionally, a new type of pressure has evolved. Now, players must wait much longer before being able to entertain offers of playing. It’s tough but we can help. You’ll need to stay the course but make certain you’ve worked the system as needed.

Our Players

In this database our players are separated into two groups. Very simply stated you either ARE VERIFIED or you’re NOT YET VERIFIED. The reason for this notation is simply to allow college coaches the ability to go to our site and choose on athletes that already show what’s necessary to play at the next level. That verification “badge” is gained on the field playing or by using quality video during evaluations. This status helps coaches hone in on potential recruits. It also gets your player’s foot in the door and should help to motivate parents to understand what’s most important as their  players grow potentially, academically and athletically. Most family’s today chase better teams over instruction and playing to get better. Not nearly enough is done understanding if their players are truly college prospects or at what level they can potentially succeed in. For the majority of prospects in today’s climate… “showcasing” is the chosen way to be found but sheer numbers have diluted the showcase market. Traveling has increased the expense and devalued what formerly was far more functional. Yes, we agree…you do need to play! We say, look to clubs who create competition as local round-robins, become competitive, learn to win and then hit the big stage for greater competitive levels. But first, EARN YOUR BADGE and work to separate yourself from the competition. We’ll move you up accordingly. Get to work!
