Athletic Digital Identity (Profile Page)
Sports Thread’s profile pages enable college coaches to quickly and easily evaluate high school athletes, then contact them on the spot and stay in touch via Sports Thread.
The Thread allows high school athletes to see what athletes competing in their same sport are doing in real-time. This incites competition between athletes and rival schools. High school athletes will see videos that athletes in their same age brackets are posting and how they are performing. This will drive athletes to want to be better, post more often and provide them and their teams a tool to monitor their competition. Most importantly, the more athletes post the more exposure they get.
Additionally, The Thread enables users to view activity nationwide from college athletes, college coaches and fans. Through these posts users can grow their own following, or “fan” group, giving them “bragging” rights. These posts provide a wide range of benefits by giving colleges exposure to high school athletes seeking a place to play, college athletes an outlet to share their daily lives, and fans a place to share their experiences.

College Coaches can access “Athletes” an indexed list of every athlete in their sport, complete with filters to refine results. Coaches can review athletes in their sport, then click through to their Athletic Digital Identity for further evaluation, and contact them via Sports Thread Chat.
