RAIDERS JOINS WITH SOFTBALLRECRUITS

Effective immediately, Raiders Softball is partnering with SportRecruits to assist our athletes with their recruiting process.  This online tool will assist the Raiders coaches as well as the student athlete and their family with contacting colleges, creating an online profile, as well as tracking emails and responses.  Please refer to your email announcement for additional information regarding registering.

Here is a link to a short video on how SportsRecruits can help you.

To register go to our Raiders OnlineStore.  

Here's SoftballRecruits press release!..

CONCORD, MA – October, 2016 – Raiders Softball and SoftballRecruits have reached an agreement on a club integration, it was announced today. As part of the agreement, Raiders Softball staff and players will receive access to the innovative suite of tools provided by the recruiting platform. “By incorporating the SportsRecruits platform,” said Lisa McGloin, President and Head Coach. “We can bring players a new level of ease and success in their recruiting efforts.” “We are extremely excited to integrate with SportsRecruits. The recruiting process will be easier, more consistent, and more informative.” “Our organizational goals have always been to help our athletes compete at the highest level possible. Utilization of SportsRecruits will elevate the level of assistance our organization can provide for our players, so that they can realize all of their hard work and their goals of becoming collegiate softball players.”

"A streamlined process is the key to successful college recruiting, and this is exactly what the SportsRecruits platform provides."

- Lisa McGloin, President and Head Coach

SoftballRecruits is a technology solution that automatically organizes the recruiting process for club staff and players. With SoftballRecruits, players share their athletic stats, academic transcripts, event schedule and video. The Built-In Messaging System connects the club to every college coach in the country.

A Unified Recruiting Solution

In the saturated recruiting space, it is important for players to set themselves apart. Raiders Softball recognized in SoftballRecruits an opportunity to give their athletes an edge. “Our organization aspires to provide high quality tools that give our players an unprecedented advantage in the recruiting process," said Lisa McGloin about the integration. "With this user-friendly platform, our players will easily gain access to and communicate with collegiate softball coaches and programs. With SoftballRecruits, players can message any college coach in the country. They populate their profiles with a picture, highlight reels, and video. This potential for customization empowers student-athletes to control the first interaction that a coach has with them. But the players are not the only ones to benefit. SoftballRecruits eliminates much of the wasted time and resources that make the recruiting process chaotic and inefficient for clubs. “We were attracted to the easy access to email data and follow-up opportunities,” said McGloin. “We will benefit from the continuous flow of communication, coupled with a high level of data organization.” “A streamlined process is the key to successful college recruiting,” said McGloin. “And this is exactly what the SR platform provides."
