The SAS College Game Plan.
Marketing Program for College-Bound Athletes
A HUGE thank you to the SAS staff for their support and assistance along the way. Navigating the recruiting process was like speaking a foreign language. Having the support and guidance from SAS was simply awesome.

How It Works
Your College Game Plan™ experience begins with the SAS Data Center, a user-friendly tutorial to help gather & organize all the specific items college coaches will be needing to properly evaluate you as a candidate for their programs. The SAS Team holds your hand through the entire start-up phase to ensure timely completion.
Custom Recruiting Website
SAS builds and manages a state-of-the-art custom website for you, complete with academic transcripts, photos, schedules, all pertinent athletic & academic credentials, contact information and built-in video. Throughout the course of your recruiting process, your custom SAS profile can feature as many new highlight reels as you want, with room on your website for up to 4 videos at one time. SAS works with your current & former coaches to collect scouting reports. We feature these evaluations on your website so that college coaches can read what your references are saying about you.
College Selection Process
SAS then leads the process of building your “target audience” or custom pool of college programs determined by how well you perform on the field and on film, how your high school and/or club coaches assess you, academic performance, physical attributes and other personal preferences. SAS furnishes your family with a complete list of these college coaches, including college coaches’ names, their school’s website, plus coaches’ email addresses and phone numbers.
Email Marketing Campaigns
SAS composes and sends personal introductions on the athlete’s direct behalf to each college coach in their network. Each email is written for the athlete and college coaches are addressed personally by name. A few weeks after introducing you to college coaches, SAS composes and sends personal follow-up emails to each college coach that has not yet replied to you. 90 days later, we launch a new email marketing campaign for you, again composing personal emails to each college coach by name. SAS launches new campaigns for you every 90 days. If you have a special tournament or event coming up before your next 90 day campaign is scheduled, then we can create a special marketing campaign for that event.
Technology to Monitor College Recruitment Activity
SAS monitors interest from college coaches, including every coach that opens your emails and watches your videos. SAS creates and manages a report of this information and updates the report every 24 hours so your family can track potential recruiting interest as well. These reports help bring valuable transparency to your college recruitment activity. They help determine which programs are and are not showing preliminary interest in you, and what you can do to jump-start dialogue with these college coaches.
College Recruiting Tips, Reminders & Success Tools
SAS delivers frequent reminders, tips and success tools to keep athletes and parents informed of important NCAA recruiting rule changes, upcoming events and general recruiting guidance. Each SAS client also receives a copy of our comprehensive College Recruiting Playbook, which features 100+ pages of invaluable insights and strategies to help you gain a competitive advantage over other recruits. Additionally, parents are invited to join private social media groups and attend periodic live forums for SAS clients only.
1-on-1 Private Guidance & Support
Finally, SAS is available for one-on-one private guidance & support with important steps throughout the college recruitment process, including: › Replying to college coaches › Managing your social media assets › Camps, combines & recruiting events › How and when to start narrowing college choices › In-person interviews with college coaches – how to prepare for them › Preparing for Official & Unofficial Campus visits › Understanding the National Letter of Intent – dates, policies, what it means, and who will and won’t be signing one
