Helping Your College-Bound Volleyball player


and get recruited

Overwhelmed with those coach emails everyone says you should be sending? Here's a way to make it MUCH EASIER!

IF YOU'RE so over the whole

"sign up for a service and hope coaches flock to your court" thing...

the right place

For the savvy student-athlete who puts in the work

who knows NOT to leave their recruiting to chance.

  • You have the passion, and you work hard to develop your skills and your mindset on the court. 
  • But you need a way to separate yourself from the rest of the pack.
  • You know you should be getting yourself out there, but you struggle with getting coaches to notice you.
  • You’re starting to hear about other players getting offers, and really, all you want at this point is some help knowing where to start. 
  • The FOMO is getting real.

And the proud volleyball parents just doing your best

to help your kids succeed and reach for their dream.

  • If you’re like most volleyball parents, there’s not much you wouldn’t do for your child.
  • You want to help them turn college volleyball goal into a reality.
  • You’re searching for help from friends, club coaches, or even online. Maybe you’ve even spent some of the college fund for a service who promised you more exposure.
  • What you wish you would have known before you started was how important it is to make personal connections with coaches, and what they’re actually looking for.
hi, I'm laurie

You can think of me as your VIRTUAL team mom!

I’m a teacher, web designer, and volleyball mom of two college athletes (& ‘team mom’ to many more)!

I teach volleyball players how to leverage their online presence to reach more coaches – without huge recruiting service prices.

Building volleyball recruiting websites is my jam, but I’m also obsessed with chocolate, Shark Tank, worship music & Amazon Prime!

And I’m super excited we found each other!

"Hey coach, look at me" won't always get you to the top of the recruiting list.

game plan


We'll start by building you a share-worthy website that makes coaches wanna pull up a chair, find out more about you, and binge watch all your highlight videos (trust me - it's gonna be so much MORE than a cookie-cutter profile on someone else's page).


Then you'll implement some 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.

kind words from clients
Choosing to have Student-Athlete Connections create my son’s website was the best decision. Laurie's very friendly and professional and understands the process having two student athletes herself. The site was beautiful, 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. It really took away so much stress about recruiting for us. I highly recommend Laurie and Student Athlete Connections to help your volleyball recruiting process!
