If you want to one day participate on a collegiate athletic team then mastering social media is a must in today’s time. One in five student athletes use social media to make career connections, network, and get their name out there. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and many other platforms are necessary to gain the exposure you need and get your name in front of coaches and recruiting services.
The number of kids in America that currently play one or more sports in high school greatly outnumber the available slots on college campuses. That means, in most sports, there is theoretically less than a 1 % chance to play beyond high school. By fully utilizing social media you can get ahead of the pack and significantly increase your chances in the recruiting process.
Make sure your social media accounts reflect the true athlete in you.
