I can update everything else on my profile for free. Why do I need a Recruiting Advantage membership to upload video?
We have many minors who use our website, and we take many measures to ensure that inappropriate content does not appear on profile pages. The most important measure is our review process - all submissions are reviewed by our staff.
Reviewing videos is very time-consuming - and therefore costly. Requiring a Recruiting Advantage membership ensures that video submissions will be higher-quality, and it also helps cover the reviewing costs.
Do I need to publish a video?
Coaches always want to watch their recruits play. Video of your groundstrokes, serves, volleys, and match play can allow coaches to get the information they need whenever they have the time. And videos are obviously compelling - nothing grabs attention like a video clip.
What should go into my video?
A good video starts with a plan. The typical video is 2-5 minutes in length. Typical components include:
- A short introduction where you introduce yourself and state your goals.
- Several sections covering various technical components, like groundstrokes, serves, and net play.
- Match play.
