HUNTINGTON, NY. Dec 11th, 2020 — After meeting with Sports Recruits Co-Founders Chris Meade and Matt Wheeler, the leadership at the Long Island Lacrosse Journal knew there was more that could be done to promote all the amazing talent in the inaugural 2020 LILJ Winter League. Quickly, the sports recruits leadership, engineers, and success team loaded every player into their EventBeacon app, set-up live streaming for this week’s slate of games, and pinged every college coach in the country to watch the LILJ HS Winter League. This partnership’s intentions are simple, connect the hundreds of recruitable athletes performing with their HS teams each week with college lacrosse coaches across the country.
Live Streamed Games With Rosters
While college coaches will be able to keep their notes organized, follow the LILJ HS League all winter, and access athlete profiles through the EventBeacon app; athletes will get a chance to see which college coaches are tuning in to watch them play each week. Sports Recruits gives users the ability to see who’s watching. This includes both your highlight video posted on SportsRecruits, as well as live streamed or on demand games your team was playing in. This feature is just another way athletes and college coaches can engage, connect, and further the recruiting process.
Player Profiles In the Palm of Your Hands
While live streamed games are great, college coaches can’t always catch the action whenever/wherever they want. For example, Division 1 coaches actually aren’t allowed to view live streamed games during a recruiting dead period. So, EventBeacon gives college coaches the ability to watch videos from the LILJ Winter League On Demand. Every game, every week, college coaches can reach into a video library to view all the action. See what that video library looks like below.
