The cost of the “annual subscription” is $55 per year. You get access to our platform for the 2019-2020 calendar year (ends May 31, 2020).

The “annual subscription” grants you login credentials to access our platform. When you log in to our platform, it includes x5 basic areas:

1. The list of athletes
2. The overviews
3. The updates
4. The blog
5. The vocabulary

All institutions with an active “annual subscription” get access to the same 5 areas. The 5 areas are identical for all registering universities/colleges.

The “trial version” is free or charge, allows you to review the same 5 areas, but with certain limitations (no access to the latest post in the scout’s blog). The “annual subscription” gives you access to all content, including the latest post in the scout’s blog.

We also travel to various cities to provide coverage for major events to reflect broad-based coverage of our geographical area. Prospects from Southeastern Europe may also be included.

The profiles may include external links (youtube) to video highlights of the prospect. Our service does not provide on demand video recordings of particular contests.
