With fewer than 5% of high school athletes moving on to play at the next level, recruiting is more than signing up for a service and hoping a coach shows up at your court

Unsure how to go from high school player to college recruit?

  • You already love the game. Now it's time to help you to...
  • GET SEEN - Build your online presence & stand out from your competition​

Have we met yet?

Hi, I'm Laurie, and you can think of me as your volleyball BFF!

As a mom of two volleyball student-athletes (& “team mom” to many more), I’ve had a front row seat to the volleyball recruiting game for 15+ years. Through lots of research, time, money and mistakes, our family has learned some valuable lessons (like how to avoid FOMO when everyone else is getting offers but you)! 

  • I want to help you...
  • increase your exposure to coaches
  • raise your odds of winning a spot on a roster
  • with tools that save you stress & make it super simple!

Feeling overwhelmed trying to get noticed by that coach from your dream school (or any school)?

This doesn't have to be you. I can help!

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!

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!
