Terms and Conditions of Use

Introduction

This website is designed to be a community for high school sports players and their supporters. It consists of a directory of profiles on players, high schools and colleges. This content is either captured from public sources or it is entered online by the entity. A player's profile and their associated high school sports and academic information can be shared with college coaches for the purpose of athletic recruiting. The player profiles and associated content makes it easier for colleges to identify, evaluate, and contact a player. The availability of college and high school profiles, on the site, allows players and their supporters to more easily do research on these entities. The services (the "Services") offered by this website include access to our directories, recruiting tools, specialized databases, communication templates, our proprietary recruiting methodologies and our expert consulting services. We also have a standalone college recommendation product called CollegeFinder. Some of these services are offered at no cost and some are offered on a subscription basis. System access to the Personal Recruiter product expires on 8/31 of the player's high school senior year.
