Hi, I’m Laurie!

I create custom websites and highlight videos for student athletes, so they can connect with coaches and get one step closer to their dream of playing college volleyball.

The Mission

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.

Recruiting is more than sending an email and hoping a coach shows up at your court. It’s time to get proactive and start building your brand. The brand of YOU!

Let's Work Together to

As a mom of two college volleyball athletes, I’ve learned first hand about 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 (and there is always more to learn)! I want to shortcut that for you!

Whether it’s building you a new website or editing a highlight video, I’d love to partner with you to build your exposure and help you play at the next level! 

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 help build you a personalized, positive, online presence (with your own website – not a “profile” inside a big database). You’ll be proud to send it to coaches, and make it easier to help them decide if you’re a good fit for their team.

You won’t be asking coaches to log on to some recruiting service where you are just one among many other athletes. 

You’ll be sharing your talents and unique personality with them in an EASY to share format that they want – a simple link. Behind that link is your beautiful customized website, nothing cookie-cutter, everything YOU. Together, we’ll help you get SEEN, and get CONNECTED, so you can get RECRUITED!

Your Beautiful New Site in 3 Simple Steps

1

CONSULT

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!

2

CREATE

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!

3

LAUNCH

We'll stay in touch until we get it just right with a finished product you'll love. Coaches will have your key highlights and accomplishments, wrapped neatly in a professional package, ready for them to start getting to know you!

Everything in one place makes it easy for coaches 

And that’s a good thing.

more benefits

NO LOGIN REQUIRED

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!

FRESH CONTENT

Win a bid to Nationals, make the all-tournament team, get a killer SAT score, or maybe you've grown a couple of inches? Just submit an update request and it will be made quickly by the next business day.

MOBILE ACCESS

Coaches are always moving! They 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, you give a professional first impression.

SAFETY AND SECURITY

Relax knowing your content is in good hands. Software and security updates are always kept current to protect and maintain your site. Your first year of web hosting is also free, with an option to renew.

Kind words from clients...

Scott Bradley“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.”
~ Scott, dad of player at Pepperdine

 

“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!”
~ Debbie, mom of future player at UC Santa Barbara
