What is CaptainU?
CaptainU is a set of tools that connects high school athletes and their parents with college coaches. Athletes use a profile to organize all their relevant athletic and academic information, build a list of schools they’re interested in and contact coaches directly at those schools from their profile. While being able to proactively reach out to colleges, athletes also get exposure with college coaches who use CaptainU to search for and contact athletes that meet their criteria.
I receive notifications from CaptainU telling me a coach has found me, added me & viewed my profile. Is this real?
Yes! All notifications on CaptainU are triggered by genuine coach activity. When a coach takes an action like running a search, viewing a profile, or saving an athlete to a recruiting list within their account, we let you know via the activity tab within your profile and a notification email.
How can I get the most exposure out of CaptainU?
Athletes that actively engage with all the features in the CaptainU profile get the most exposure to college coaches on the CaptainU network. When you continuously update your profile, add colleges and send messages to coaches, you increase your exposure and ensure you are connecting with as many colleges as possible.
