For driven volleyball athletes

(& the parents who support them)

You're ready to make the leap from high school player to college recruit!

You've got the passion and talent to play at the next level.
You need a way to stand out from the competition.
You need help knowing where to begin. ​


If you're soooo over the whole
"sign up for a service & hope coaches flock to your court" thing...

I'm here to help you move the needle in the direction of RECRUITED!

Start with an option below!

Hi, I'm Laurie!

You can think of me as your volleyball BFF!

  • I teach volleyball players & their families how to leverage their online presence to reach more coaches - without paying huge recruiting service prices. 
  • I'm a teacher, web designer, and volleyball mom of two college athletes (& 'team mom' to many more)!
  • Building amazing volleyball recruiting websites is my jam - but I'm also obsessed with chocolate, Shark Tank, worship music, and Amazon Prime!  =)

When,"Hey coach, look at ME!" isn't working too well...

Welcome to your new game plan.

We'll start by building you a custom website and loading up your volleyball highlight videos (not a cookie cutter profile on someone else's page).

Then you'll implement my simple strategies for connecting with coaches and maximizing your exposure... all for LESS MONEY, with LESS STRESS, and in LESS TIME!

So you can focus on playing the game you love.

You've heard the stats: Fewer than 5% of high school student-athletes move on to play at the next level. If you're trying to be one of them, you're in the right place! 

Kudos from

Choosing to have Student-Athlete Connections create my son’s website was the best decision for him. Laurie is very friendly and professional and understands the process having two student athletes herself. The site was beautiful, was done in a short amount of time, and all for a reasonable price. He was able to quickly start sharing his site with many college coaches!

Quality of work and ability to make changes – Both these concerns were a non-issue. The website was very professionally managed, easy to navigate and quickly updated. Highly recommend Laurie and Student Athlete Connections to help your volleyball recruiting process!
