CaptainU is a set of tools that connects high school athletes and their parents with college coaches. Athletes use a profile to organize all their relevant athletic and academic information, build a list of schools they’re interested in and contact coaches directly at those schools from their profile. While being able to proactively reach out to colleges, athletes also get exposure with college coaches who use CaptainU to search for and contact athletes that meet their criteria.
Yes! All notifications on CaptainU are triggered by genuine coach activity. When a coach takes an action like running a search, viewing a profile, or saving an athlete to a recruiting list within their account, we let you know via the activity tab within your profile and a notification e-mail.
Athletes that actively engage with all the features in the CaptainU profile get the most exposure to college coaches on the CaptainU network. When you continuously update your profile, add colleges and send messages to coaches, you increase your exposure and ensure you are connecting with as many colleges as possible.
It’s free to create and maintain a profile on CaptainU! Certain benefits are only available to our paid members. Our paid plan (Silver) starts at $19.95/month and is just billed month to month.
For expert guidance with the recruiting process, we also offer a Gold and Platinum package. All package prices are discounted when you choose to be billed annually. To find out which CaptainU plan best fits your goals, schedule a call with one of our recruiting experts.
