Initially, we started out life with just one package; the full-fat version. While we had great success in placing dozens of athletes with NCAA schools, we felt many athletes who were in the research phase were missing out. Parents or coaches also might have questions too, and our low risk Basic package offers you the opportunity to explore your options without committing to the full recruiting process.
trackboundUSA was established in July 2011 by British athletes John Beattie and Steven Morrow. The website was established to provide information, share insight and publish news regarding NCAA track and field and cross country. In the time since its formation, the website has been a huge success. This success can be attributed to the following services that we provide:
Ultimately, while there are many recruiting services available to athletes out there, we feel many of them are not tailored sufficiently to their target audience. We intend on sticking to what we know; NCAA Track and Field.
Yes, but just the one really.
As we have always stressed through our articles on trackboundUSA, collegiate sport is heavily regulated by its governing organization, the NCAA. Whilst all areas are covered comprehensively, recruiting is in fact one of the most detailed areas, with a total of 66 pages covering the subject in the 2012-2013 NCAA Division 1 handbook.
Recruiting services for athletes seeking athletic scholarships have been around for many years and on this page we have highlighted the key NCAA recruiting regulations that must be adhered to. The rules apply as per the start of the 2012-2013 academic year.
188.8.131.52 Talent Evaluation Services and Agents. A prospective student-athlete may allow a scouting service or agent to distribute personal information (e.g., high school academic and athletics records, physical statistics) to member institutions without jeopardizing his or her eligibility, provided the fee paid to such an agent is not based on placing the prospective student-athlete in a collegiate institution as a recipient of institutional financial aid.
trackboundUSA is a service that provides advice and guidance to prospective student-athletes considering studying and competing at an American collegiate institution. Our fee is based on the time spent evaluating a prospective student-athlete for their suitability for American athletic programs in various divisions and conferences as well as initiating and facilitating a dialogue with programs deemed suitable based on that evaluation.
NCAA regulations do not permit us to accept a fee conditional upon successful procurement of an athletics scholarship with an American collegiate institution’s athletics program. Furthermore, trackboundUSA makes no decisions on behalf of prospective student-athletes and their families as to their choice of college and thus accepts no liability for the result of that decision. We do share information that is available to us from our experience in the American collegiate athletics system to allow a student-athlete to take full responsibility in making an informed and educated decision on their own that will hopefully allow them to realize their athletic and academic aspirations.
