Why NCSA Team Edition
Take chance out of college recruiting
Developed by Next College Student Athlete (NCSA), Team Edition is a trusted team-recruiting platform built specifically with high school and club coaches in mind. Team Edition makes it even easier to take part in the recruiting activity happening on the world’s largest, oldest and most-successful collegiate athletic recruiting network. Thanks to our data-driven recruit-match system and a network of more than 35,000 college coaches across 34 sports, we can equip clubs, coaches and athletes with the tools and education they need to boost their recruiting exposure.
At NCSA, we understand that in order to find the right college, recruits can't leave anything to chance. That’s why we use a mix of data, technology, and worthwhile advice from our staff of former college athletes and coaches to match recruits with the right athletic programs. Since 2000, our technology has helped more than 100,000 student-athletes commit to playing their sport at the college level. In fact, more than 90% of U.S. college sports programs have had at least one NCSA athlete on their roster.
College Coach Activity in 2019
have had at least one NCSA athlete on their rosters
Colleges across the U.S. use the NCSA platform to discover and make evaluations of recruits. Some coaches log in to NCSA, while others talk to our coach relations teams or watch an athlete’s NCSA highlight film. No matter the method, college coaches are using the NCSA Athletic Recruiting Network to discover, evaluate and eventually sign athletes.
The “coach view” has become part of the college recruiting process. When a college coach views an athlete’s profile, the athlete receives a notification and can take a proactive step to reach out to that school.
Recruiting is only one of many responsibilities for college coaches. We built the “athlete follow” to allow coaches to receive automatic updates about the recruits they are interested in. When a coach follows an athlete on the NCSA platform, they get immediate updates when that athlete uploads new video, adds academic information, and more. This simple feature is an easy way for coaches to stay on top of prospects in each recruiting class.
Before a centralized recruit database, it was impossible for college coaches to find all of their potential recruits. Through the NCSA platform coaches have been able to zero in on all of the recruits that meet their athletic and academic requirements. For example, if they are looking for all left-handed pitchers, on the west coast with a 3.5 GPA or above, they can quickly find them. This feature also makes it easier for each recruit to find the program that is going to be their right fit.
Software by college coaches
NCSA has partnerships with Front Rush, one of the leading software programs used by colleges to manage recruiting. Through a deep integration, college coaches can search and add athletes directly to their recruiting software from NCSA. This new advancement is just getting started, but already has resulted in over half a million athlete profiles getting added to recruiting classes across the country.

Team Edition was built for every coach, regardless of how big or small their program is. With a team-recruiting platform that’s tailor-made for them, coaches and clubs can do more for their athletes in less time.
