- Share your profile widely and track the coaches who view it
- Explore colleges of potential interest to you
In their NCSA reviews, athletes share how impactful this app has been. Here's one review from NAIA basketball player Cole Wurster: "NCSA gave me the tools I needed to interact with the college coaches and how to build relationships with them and get to know them."
Student-athletes who benefit from Next College Student Athlete's premium memberships receive additional features, like:
- Even more ways to connect with colleges
- Increased tracking of coach views
- Message center to manage communication with college coaches
- Guided education from recruiting coaches
We're excited to announce our brand new Message Center: coming soon to all sports!
It's now easier for you to connect with college coaches and stay organized from the start, from your very first introduction through your entire chat history.
Here's what's new:
Simple and streamlined: Simply tap on a message thread to view your entire chat history with a coach, attach your highlight video, transcript or schedule, and use emojis to fully express yourself. Reading and responding to messages is effortless at home or on the go.
Better organization: A simplified Personal tab makes managing your Message Center a breeze, so you can focus your time on building relationships with coaches and responding to the messages that matter most.
Easily manage coach requests: See when a college coach wants to view your transcripts with a single click – without leaving your original message thread.
User-friendly updates to existing features: Access college camps and promotional content under the Camps and Other tabs. Now you can move conversations between tabs with a single click and filter messages by unread, waiting on coach response, templates, spam and trash.
Ratings and Reviews
message center issues
great app, but it has two big issues
1) when coaches send emails with pictures, it will show the left half of the email (words and pictures) and you have to view it on a laptop to see the whole thing. very annoying.
2) less annoying, but still an issue: often when I read a message it will not mark it as read so it says I have like 40 unread messages when in reality most of those are from weeks ago. It doesn’t do this every time though.
SAVE YOUR MONEY!!
The service NCSA offers is a complete waste of money! Being a college football players the most significant thing we need is exposure. Currently, my profile has had 42 NAIA, D3 D2 views in the last four years. Other sites (that come way cheaper) such as myrecruitboard (one I saw on Twitter for the low price of $75 for about 6 months of service) have been way more beneficial to me and has allowed over 270 division one coaches to view my profile, some requested I fill questionnaires while others got my contact info. Your other option (if not recruited the way you want out of high school) would be the junior college route. Find yourself an elite junior college and be successful there, school is cheaper, and if you perform well, you will get that offer you want. Juco is the route I took, the connections my coaches have allowed me to gain a division one offer in the big sky conference. The other offer I received through the free site of Twitter. SAVE YOUR MONEY! Every college coach would advise against these kinds of service. The only option you have camps, they are costly but if you have the money spend away!!!
App Won’t Launch
This version is much better than prior versions. Two bits of feedback…when looking at the list of my colleges, it’s difficult to scroll without changing the location of the colleges within the list. Also, it’s unclear how to refresh the dashboard. I can swipe down, but there’s no progress icon or anything to indicate if the page is refreshing.
