Hi, I'm Laurie!

You can think of me as your volleyball BFF!

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! 

  • I teach volleyball recruits and 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)! College recruiting lessons? We've learned many!
  • 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 really working too well...

Welcome to your new game plan.

getting connected

We'll start by building you a custom website and loading up your volleyball highlight videos (no 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're ready to play at the next level. Now it's time for you to...
  • GET SEEN - Build your online presence & stand out from your competition​
  • GET CONNECTED - Start coach conversations in a quick and authentic way
  • GET RECRUITED - Find your best fit school without that expensive recruiting service

If you're still trying to get noticed by that coach from your dream school (or any school)

Fast forward... to the feeling of finally being done with that stress!

Don't be stuck with your fingers frozen over the keyboard...

Download the (free) coach email workbook and use my mad-lib style templates to help get your recruiting conversations started! Learn what to say (& when), so you won’t need to worry about sounding desperate or icky!

Kudos from clients...

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!
