Parents, it’s important to note that college and university recruiters start looking for prospective players as early as Grade 9. If your child is interested in going to college or university on a scholarship, planning needs to begin early!
A skills video is required by the prospective coaches so they can see the athletes performance on the field. Power Zone Academy knows what the coaches are looking for and how to showcase each athletes best skills.
The cost of $350 covers all the following:
- Video Production
This is on field filming of the players hitting and two defensive postitions. This usually takes approximately 1.5-2.5 hours. The player will need to have at least one other teammate there to help with recieving or throwing the ball on defense. Pitchers will require a catcher. All players are in uniform and remember that you are promoting yourself so looking professional is important. The athlete should be ready to work the hardest that they ever have since this is an interview for a 2-4 year sholarship that could be worth from $25000-$200000.
- Video editing
Dave Paetkau has had great success in the past editing the video and he knows exactly what the coaches want to see. The process takes the hours of raw video and turns it into a 5-8 min finished product that will give the player the best footage to show off their skills.
- Profile templates
A profile highlight sheet is requested by most coaches that gives them a better idea of the type of athlete that they are trying to recruit. The profile page includes personal data, statistical data, educational marks and contact information. Each athlete will need to fill out the template or submit thier own profile.
- Hosting the video and profile on our website
Power Zone Academy’s web site will host the profile and the video via YouTube. This will give each player a one stop spot that coaches will be able to visit to see thier profile and video. Power Zone has coaches that visit the web site on a regular basis to see the videos of potential collegiate athletes.
Please contact Power Zone to arrange a time to get your child’s post secondary education opportunities started.
