NEXT COLLEGE STUDENT ATHLETE (NCSA) TEAMS UP WITH ACTIVE NETWORK®

ACTIVE Network, a leader in participant management solutions, to offer its athletes easy access to college recruiting help through NCSA

CHICAGO - Next College Student Athlete (NCSA), one of the largest NCAA-compliant collegiate athletic recruiting network that matches student-athletes with college coaches, has partnered with ACTIVE Network, the premier global marketplace for activities and events and an industry-leading provider of intelligence solutions, to help more student-athletes find their best path to college.

“We are always looking for new and innovative ways to help student-athletes,” said Lisa Strasman president of NCSA. “ACTIVE is a leading technology provider for sport and recreational activities. Student-athletes registering for an activity like a football camp, soccer camp, or a baseball tournament through ACTIVE’s Camp and Class ManagerTM or LeagueOneTM technologies can now easily connect to NCSA and start building their free, online athletic profile1.”

Creating an NCSA profile is often the first step on a student-athlete’s college recruiting journey. The profile acts as an athletic resume, allowing college coaches to search for and discover recruits online. This year alone, more than 20,000 student-athletes working with NCSA have committed to a college team.

“We’re thrilled to partner with NCSA in supporting the journey of youth athletes in reaching their full potential,” said Sheryl Hoskins, general manager for communities at ACTIVE Network. “Our integration with NCSA brings added convenience to activity registrants and reaffirms ACTIVE’s commitment to delivering technologies and services that enable lifelong athletic growth.”

Partnering with NCSA is just one of the many ways ACTIVE supports youth athletes and their passion for sports. Through online portals like ACTIVEkids.com, which according to 2016 ACTIVE system data, listed 440,000 activities and events and received over 1.2 million annual site visits, ACTIVE has become one of the largest online marketplaces for youth activities in North America. They also provide expert resources, training plans, and fitness calculators, to help make it easy for people of all ages, to prepare for any type of athletic event.
