Social Media Training For High School Athletes

Social Media Coach For Athletes has a variety of programs focused on responsible and effective social media skill development for high school athletes. We know that student athletes are going to communicate with their friends through Facebook, Twitter, and a variety of other platforms, and that is not changing any time soon. What we do is provide the critical social media training that empowers them to be responsible and build a personal brand that they can be proud of and that college coaches want to be associated with.

Social media has forever changed the way recruiting works in college sports. As more coaches embrace the medium, there are no signs that the use of social media as a critical recruiting tool are slowing. In fact, it is just the opposite as more coaches jump into social media in a big way. More than 50% of all Division 1 Head Football Coaches have either a Facebook or Twitter account and many have both. For coaches, it is another way to recruit, contact and learn about potential recruits that they might have missed in years gone by. For players, it is a way contact coaches, get recruited and talk with their fans at an unprecedented level. The entire world of recruiting has embraced social media which is making the competition and scrutiny greater than at any other time in history. With your student athlete’s college career on the line, can you afford not to get them some much needed social media training to ensure they are doing everything right?

Look at what a few college coaches are saying about social media and high school athletes:

 

Larry Fedora on social media“We are very involved with Facebook and we are constantly messaging kids.” Larry Fedora, Head Football Coach, University Of North Carolina

 

 

Will Muschamp on social media and athletic recruiting

 

“Social media also provides another glimpse into a player’s character.  Kids need to understand that they have to be very careful about what they do on social media.”  Will Muschamp, Head Football Coach, Florida Gators

 

 

Bill Curry on social media and athletes“But we’re in the midst of a communication revolution, which is changing our culture, changing our government. It’s changed a fundamental part of what we do, too, and it’s not slowing down.”  Bill Curry, Head Football Coach, Georgia State

 

 

There is no doubt that social media is being used by almost every college athletic program in the nation and in every sport.  The smaller the sport the higher the stakes on social media as it allows coaches with smaller recruiting budget to see a wider range of potential recruits.  the days of relying on the high school coach to make contact are long over and the truth is that it was never effective anyway.  Student athletes have all the power in their hands to create their future, and is all starts with creating their own personal brand for coaches to see.

Social Media Coach For Athletes is well-versed in brand creation and marketing because our founder has created hundreds of social media marketing programs and strategies for some of the biggest consumer brands in the world, multiple celebrities, professional sports teams and professional athletes.  We are not trying to sell recruiting services, video programs or anything else.  We are exclusively focused on social media training for athletes.
