More coaches at your court, less stress about recruiting, and a spot on that roster.

More coaches at your court, less stress about recruiting, and a spot on that roster.

It's time you had a plan. And a roadmap to get there.

The Vision

College volleyball made possible.

The mission:

Helping college-bound volleyball players maximize their options to play at the next level, with tools that put them in the driver’s seat of their recruiting journey.

Any of this sound familiar?

You've got what it takes & you're ready to level up your game

But you're feeling confused at just how to get noticed

You're tired of hearing about others getting offers and not you

But what if there was someone in your corner who could give you the tools to help you increase your exposure & make better connections, so you could reach your dream of playing at the next level?

Our family did it!

Hey there! I’m Laurie – teacher, web designer & volleyball mom. Building websites is my jam, but I’m also obsessed with chocolate, playlists and Amazon Prime!

I’m a teacher, single parent, “Volleyball Mom” to two college athletes, and “team mom” to dozens more. I started this side hustle after our own journey with volleyball recruiting over the years – with lots of trial and error, mistakes, and celebrations along the way.

My kids weren’t huge middle blockers who could jump out of the gym. They were just a couple of hard working liberos who trained hard with great coaches, did well in school, and learned how to attract coaches from the right schools.

Both are examples of how it is very possible to get recruited if you put in the work. When you figure out how to gain the right exposure and make connections with coaches from programs that are the right fit, things WILL fall into place! That’s where I come in.

We live in Hawaii and could only travel once or twice a year to national tournaments. I knew I had to be proactive.

A quick Google search told me there were companies out there that could help, but there was a slight problem. I’m a single mom on a teacher’s salary, and many of them were full blown recruiting services that I couldn’t afford and didn’t need.

One place strung us along for over a week on conference calls, only to unveil their lowest priced package at the very end of the process, despite me asking SEVERAL times along the way. The cost was more than my mortgage payment!

You know those questions you have at every tournament? I had them, too!

Will any coaches show up?   Will my kid have a good match?   Is anyone ever going to notice them?

The good news is, that anxiety you're feeling is temporary.

I started binge watching YouTube videos to teach myself how to make a website. I began with a page for my son, which he used to send to programs he was interested in. When coaches started asking for videos, I added a page for that. Soon, his teammates were asking me to help them, too.

Before I knew it, this completely self-taught website designer volleymom (ME!) was getting word of mouth referrals. I’ve been helping other families ever since!

Busy coaches don't have time to jump through hoops!

Coaches are looking for players with specific qualities to contribute to their team – evaluating sometimes hundreds of potential athletes to find the right fit. Unless you are among the elite, they might not even know about you yet

That's exactly why I created my custom website packages

So you can start reaching out and connecting with coaches with as little stress as possible - for you AND for the coach!

You might be thinking...

"But can't my amazing athletically, talented (insert other favorite adjective) kid get recruited without their own website?"

Absolutely, yes they can!

And here are some great ways to increase the odds…

Travel to as many showcases, and qualifiers as possible, hoping that coach from their dream school notices them

Have such a physical presence that coaches seek them out and send offers really early into the process

Be at the upper crust of national recruits and be lucky enough to get amazing, free press coverage

But for most athletes, this is their reality:

  • They haven’t been BLESSED TO BE 6’5″ TALL so that all the coaches are already contacting them
  • LIMITED family budgets may keep them from traveling more than once or twice per year
  • They aren’t necessarily a STARTER, or their team isn’t among the ELITE Gold Bracket contenders (which is still totally OK)

The road to college volleyball is stressful enough! You don't have to feel like you're stuck, overwhelmed, or behind your timeline anymore.

We live in a fast-paced, technology-rich world. Right now, you have at your disposal a huge ability to reach coaches by connecting them to your virtual highlight reel. Sure, some factors in the recruiting process will be out of your control, but you CAN control: your initiative to be proactive and your effort to make it happen.

For my family, and clients, having an online profile, an email strategy, and knowing how to navigate the whole thing has sure helped!
