College coaches and evaluators are utilizing and accessing the GymRat RECRUITING Index YEAR-ROUND. With the powerful internal communication tools built into the GymRat RECRUITING Index, you can see exactly what college coaches are viewing your profile in real time. In order to provide a more defined target in the recruiting process, when a college coach accesses a profile in the GymRat RECRUITING Index, the system automatically sends an alert via e-mail and text message to that player and the player’s parents. The alerts that you receive from the GymRat RECRUITING Index are AUTOMATED messages that come from the system ONLY if a college coach or evaluator (publication, scouting service, media member, etc) performs an action in our database that involves your profile. UNLIKE the random messages that you might receive from other generic online recruiting services, the alerts received from the basketball-specific GymRat RECRUITING Index are NOT “sales” type messages or randomly sent messages. GymRat RECRUITING Index alerts are ONLY generated when a COLLEGE COACH or EVALUATOR (publication, scouting service, media member, etc) actually accesses your GymRat profile and performs one of the following tasks:
- PROFILE SEARCH: A COLLEGE COACH or EVALUATOR performs a search of the GymRat RECRUITING INDEX that results in your profile appearing in the search results. College coaches can utilize a number of different criteria to search the GymRat database for players that meet their recruiting needs.
- PROFILE VIEW: A COLLEGE COACH or EVALUATOR clicks on or views your GymRat profile.
- PROFILE TRACKING: A COLLEGE COACH or EVALUATOR “follows” you in the GymRat RECRUITING INDEX system. If a college coach or evaluator “follows” you, they receive an automatic alert each time you post an update to your GymRat RECRUITING INDEX profile.
- MESSAGING: A COLLEGE COACH or EVALUATOR sends you a message utilizing the internal messaging tools built into the GymRat RECRUITING INDEX.
