USA Gymnastics and CaptainU Partnership for college sports recruiting

USA Gymnastics is a nonprofit organization recognized by the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee as the governing body for the sport of gymnastics in the United States. USA Gymnastics’ mission is to build a community and culture of health, safety and excellence, where athletes can thrive in sport and in life.

CaptainU provides high school gymnasts college recruiting resources to help them fulfill the goal of competing at the collegiate level for a varsity or club program. USA Gymnastics members and member clubs can benefit from the service by connecting their high school athletes with college coaches at meets and events. USA Gymnastics works with partners that can provide additional “member benefits” as part of their annual membership fee, and CaptainU provides useful resources to gymnasts and their parents to explore pathways to collegiate gymnastics.
CaptainU provides all USA Gymnastics athlete members with a free profile, which allows them to host meet scores, academic information and videos in one easy-to-access place. Via their athlete profiles, gymnasts can message and introduce themselves to college coaches and make plans to connect in person at meets and events.

A CaptainU College account is a resource for collegiate gymnastics coaches to discover and efficiently communicate with potential athletes. CaptainU provides college gymnastics coaches free access to search prospective high school gymnasts, identify athletes they are interested in connecting with, and fully manage the recruiting process.

General FAQs

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.
