Prime VC is very unique in that we offer our athletes and families full in-house recruiting services included in club dues for our adidas teams. For athletes on our Molten teams families can elect to add recruiting services for just $200 each season. This includes a SportsRecruits.com profile along with video sharing and editing services from Hudl/VolleyMetrics which are both invaluable tools in the recruiting process. The most valuable assets we have though are Lynn Blevins and Christy Stoeckel who combined have over 30 years of experience advising and counselling athletes and families throughout the college recruiting process and are an outstanding resource for our Prime families. Christy works one on one with each of our Prime athletes to assist them in achieving their collegiate goals and dreams. Prime VC Athletes do not need to incur the additional expense of hiring a recruiting consultant as we already provide everything they could need throughout the recruiting process.
We will do all that we can to help any of our athletes with the goal of playing college volleyball get there. Among our staff we have current and former college coaches, numerous current and former collegiate athletes, and a club director who helped 33 athletes from her previous club achieve their collegiate goals in just 5 years with ITVC in Seattle. In Prime’s first 5 seasons we’ve already had 24 athletes go on to compete at the collegiate level. We are lucky to be extremely well connected to hundreds of college coaches and programs across the country. We are happy to work with each athlete who has collegiate aspirations and assist them in the recruiting process and ensure that they find the right program for them.
We utilize the SportsRecruits.com platform for our athletes to facilitate searching for college programs that are the right fit along with increasing our Prime Recruits exposure to college coaches across the country. It’s a very valuable tool for our athletes looking to play at the next level. We are also now using Hudl/VolleyMetrics video services to assist our athletes in sending video to colleges and creating highlight videos. Check out how sportsrecruits works and see why our Prime Athletes have a huge advantage in the recruiting process.
Our Recruiting Director Lynn Kessler Blevins and Recruiting Coordinator Christy Stoeckel along with our Prime Coaches are always available to communicate with college coaches on our athletes’ behalf and are able to assist in all aspects of the recruiting process. We have created a recruiting guide to assist athletes and families with the recruiting process and hopefully it answers many of the questions you might have. It is a lengthy guide but please download it and take a look.
Lynn and Christy are extremely valuable resources and will be working with Prime athletes and families and providing general recruiting information and support. Christy also offers one-on-one recruiting consulting and services to our Prime Families.
