is it your dream to...
Play College Volleyball?
I'll help you step away from your competition so you can get seen, get connected, and get recruited.
Recruiting is more than sending an email & hoping a coach shows up at your court.
It’s a myth that most schools have huge budgets or a large staff to come see you at every tournament. If you’re serious about playing college volleyball, it’s time to get proactive! I will work with you to build you a personalized, positive, online presence (with your own website – not just a “profile” inside a big database). You’ll be proud to send it off to coaches, and make it easier to help them decide if you’re a good fit for their team. Let’s start building your brand. That brand is YOU!
Hi, I’m Laurie! As a mom of two college volleyball athletes, I’ve learned first hand about both the women’s and men’s recruiting game. It took research, time, and money for my family to learn some of the lessons we have. I want to shortcut that for you! I’d love to work with you to collaborate and help build your exposure. Volleyball is my passion and if you’re here, I’m guessing it’s yours, too! I’m excited to partner with you to help you play at the next level!
With your very own customized site from SAC, you won’t be asking coaches to log on to some recruiting service software program where you are just one among many other athletes. You’ll be sharing your unique talents and personality with them in an EASY to share format that they want – a simple link. Behind that link is a beautiful, customized site, nothing cookie-cutter, everything YOU. Together, we will help you get SEEN, get CONNECTED, and get RECRUITED!
So you think you've got talent?
Let’s make sure the coaches see it!
Your Beautiful New Website in 3 Simple Steps
We will collaborate together on design and content from the start of the project. You’ll see a visual prototype that you can provide feedback on, and then, when you say, “Go!”, we’ll go live!
You'll begin by scheduling a 15 minute consultation so we can get to know each other. You'll share your goals, and I'll share what to expect during the the process. Together we'll see if we're a good fit!
Next, I'll send you a link to a profile worksheet. You'll select your layout, preferred payment, and the details I will need to begin creating the content for your site. Once I receive your info, my fun begins!
We'll stay in touch until we get it just right, with a finished product you'll love. Coaches will see your key stats, highlights, academics and athletic accomplishments - all wrapped neatly in a professional package, ready for recruiters to start getting to know you!
Everything in one place makes it easier for coaches
Here's what else...
Coaches have tight schedules! They don’t want to bother with clumsy logins or passwords just to look at your profile. Your website has its own URL with your name on it – searchable on Google and just waiting for clicks!
Submit a request to update when you win a bid to Nationals, make the all-tournament team, get a killer SAT score, or you’ve just grown a couple of inches. Updates will be made quickly during the next day’s office hours.
Coaches don’t walk around with their laptops in their pocket, so we make sure your website is visible on all of their devices. They get easy access, and you give a professional first impression.
All plans include automatic updates to any necessary software and security needed to protect and maintain your site. Relax and know your content is in good hands. All sites come with your first year of web hosting, with the option to renew.
College volleyball made possible.
Helping high school student-athletes elevate their potential to play college volleyball, not only to earn a spot on the team, but to experience the value that being a college athlete brings to their lives – long after the last whistle blows.

If you have anxiety over the thought of calling college coaches, you are not alone! Many of your fellow student-athletes avoid calling coaches because either they don’t know
You’re excited about pursing your college dreams while getting to play the sport you love. School is going well, you’ve scheduled your SAT and ACT tests, and you
Am I being recruited? It’s a fair question. If only we had some Jedi mind trick we could use to figure out if that dream college really wants
“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!” ~ D. Wilcox, mom of future player at UC Santa Barbara
“Quality of work and ability to make changes – Both these concerns were a non-issue. Website was very professionally managed, easy to navigate and quickly updated.”
~ S. Bradley, dad of player at Pepperdine
