CaptainU provides students and their families with a central place to store and search for athletic, academic and geographical information about universities. My daughter was able to use the search option to help narrow down her college choices by entering her criteria, such as division, school size, academics and location. All universities/colleges listed in CaptainU include information about the school and a link to their website. Once she learned about the schools that fit her criteria, she was able to add her favorite schools to her “favorites” list.
Finally and most important, CaptainU provides templates for the students to use when emailing a college coach, as well as an email repository. The templates are good guides for the students, as it can be a very daunting task for high school students to email a college coach and know what to say.
CaptainU helped alleviate the stress and confusion of finding a college that fit my daughter’s academic and athletic needs.
