ATHLETIC RECRUITING Our 3rd most popular question deals with how to get recruited, NCAA guidelines, and athletic scholarships. So we partnered with some of the nation's largest and most knowledgeable experts...
EVANS, GA. - The September 2015 release of a brand new cutting edge recruiting platform for Homeschool and Christian based school programs has been announced by SkillTraxTV.com's Marketing Director, Daryl Knight.
The system offers parents, coaches and organizations an aggressive tool by which to take total control of their personal or team recruiting. In this release, SkillTraxTV.com has put together features never before packaged in the online recruiting category.
"We'd rather be recognized more as a tool or weapon in the arsenal of our members hands than as just another recruiting platform. We want to be more in the background of the recruiting process than in trying to brand the athlete and ourselves at the same time as you see with most all of the other platforms. This is why so many coaches hit the delete button these days", said Knight.
SkillTraxTV CEO and Founder, Coach Pete Meadows added, "Many college coaches have shared with us that they have reached a point where when they see a communication coming from one of these current platforms, they are not giving it the same attention as they may have five, ten years ago. So coaches are actually becoming some what ad blind to their messages. Which not fair to the athletes who are putting their hopes in getting noticed".

Essay: Homeschool Sports Eligibility Keeping Up With The Times
updated July 16th
As one of the pioneers in homeschool sports, HSPN has been on top of the flexibility and changes in homeschooling since 1991 and today is no different. This essay, we believe, is the best model for today's time. As long as there is no ONE NATIONAL governing body for Homeschool Athletics for ALL SPORTS, then the best fit, as always, is to get back to our roots of establishing a Christian environment that we control that is both an outreach and a sports ministry - designed by and for homeschool parents, leaders and students.
