How is PRTG™ Different From Other Scouts Recruiting Services/Websites?

First and foremost Playing the Recruiting Game (PTRG) is not at all like Recruiting Websites or a Scouts Recruiting Service and does not match high school athletes with colleges or pay colleges and/or universities a fee for services.  PTRG is a patented LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM, the only learning management system in the market, with learning modules (just like you are used to seeing in school) that teach you how to treat your recruiting process like the business it is with a 7 Step Process that guides and empowers you (the student-athlete that is being recruited), your parents and your coaches through the entire Recruiting World. That’s precisely why we call it ‘Playing the Recruiting Game™’. You see, if you don’t understand the rules of the game you won’t know how to ‘play the game’ and most importantly go on to ‘win the game’ of recruiting… PTRG™ teaches you how to continue playing the sport you love at the next level while having IT pay for a great education.

What Makes PTRG™ Different Than All of the Other Recruiting Websites?

The biggest difference is teaching you, through our patented Learning Management System, how the Recruiting System works and how getting Athletic Scholarships really works even without have any National High School Football Rankings. What you need to understand is that you are trying to convince a university to shell out $100,000+ for you to come to their school. Athletic Scholarships are Big Business.  That’s why we take a Business approach to the Recruiting Process. No one else does this in the industry.  They’re busy trying to convince you that they have some ‘magic sauce’ to match you with the perfect schools.  Let’s face it, once you Master and Learn the Recruiting Process you’ll know Exactly what schools you match up with that will have the available Athletic Scholarships you need…

Can I use this if I play more than one sport?

Yes, you are free to use the Playing the Recruiting Game for any sport that you may play in college.  Why?  Because this is a not only a platform for getting noticed, but also a step-by-step success method for getting it done.

If you are not satisfied with our product, then simply send us an email and we will refund your purchase right away. Our goal has always been to create a happy, thriving community. If you are not thrilled with the product or are not enjoying the experience, then we have no interest in forcing you to stay an unhappy member.

Does your method work even for people with bad grades?

To be honest, it depends on how much time your child has before they need to sign on the dotted line.   Low GPA’s and test scores create what we call a recruiting gap.  Our course will tell you and your child the truth and then provide ideas for closing that recruiting gap.

Do you guarantee your results?

No.  We wish we could, but we can’t.  To successfully be recruited, the student-athlete has to take charge of the recruiting process.  They can’t leave it up to mom, dad, or grandpa.  They can’t leave it to the coach either.  So while we provide the steps that a recruit needs to take, we can’t guarantee that they have what it takes to follow through.

Is this a paid scouting service?

No, we don’t connect you with coaches, but rather we give you the philosophy, method and tools to connect with coaches on your own terms.  This is one of the secrets of winning the recruiting game.  In most cases, you need to reach out to coaches and let them know who you are.

I’m having streaming issues and/or problems with video playback. How can I fix this?
