About the HoopSeen Tip-Off
Things are changing with NCAA Live Period events. Time to prepare for the new normal. Travel teams are going from 21 days to play in front of college coaches in April and July to just seven. That’s a significant change. Playing at the right place and in front of the right people is more crucial than ever before.
College coaches will rely on scouting services like HoopSeen more than ever in 2019 because of new recruiting rule changes.
The HoopSeen Tip-Off is designed to build out your online presence as you and your team prepare for the most crucial recruiting year ever in 2019.
You have to get it right in during the evaluation period and we can help prepare you for the journey ahead.
Teams that play at the HoopSeen Tip-Off will have the upper hand in April and July during the seven days players can play with their travel teams on the recruiting trail. Every team that plays at the Tip-Off will have their head shots taken (every player) and we’ll make sure every team in the event is firmly placed in our HoopSeen Search platform.
Our HoopSeen Search software is the most advanced tool college coaches and our staff of recruiting analysts to connect players with schools. Your name needs to be in our search. Stories are collected here. Players are identified and tagged as college prospects (high-major all the way to NAIA). Their skill sets and traits highlighted, too.
Your data is important, no doubt about it. But your evaluations are equally valuable, too.
We can help connect the dots.
Get it right in 2019.
