Athletic Scouting & Recruiting Service Since 2002
“Connecting High School Athletes With College Coaches”
My name is Mark Gleason, CEO, Founder and VP of National Scouting, CHAMPS Inc. When my son was a junior at an Atlanta-area high school, I hired an athletic scouting & recruiting service to help us locate a compatible college baseball program; To Help Him Get Recruited. After a couple of months, I realized that they would not– or could not– do what they had promised. I took matters into my own hands and developed an athletic scouting & recruiting plan and strategy to get him the exposure he needed.
My `rookie` effort produced very positive results. My son received five offers to play college baseball. News of our success traveled fast among his teammates; several parents asked me to employ the same strategies to help their sons and daughters achieve their athletic goals. After several more success stories, I was convinced that my athletic scouting & recruiting `game plan` would work for many of the talented, aspiring high school student athletes.
Since 2002 we have assisted thousands of high school athletes throughout the United States as well as France, the U.K. and Canada.

How Our System Works –
Using technology we will provide and implement a proven process to get your son or daughter’s athletic scouting profiles in front of those athletic programs, you are interested in. Our company contacts coaching staffs individually via email with the athletes web page profiles to include videos and other relevant information. Every email is tracked in real time using tracking software; captured coach’s information (to include: email address, their name, what time they accessed the email, if they clicked on any links, etc.) is then forwarded directly to the athlete and their parents, who are then advised to send a brief thank you – follow up note to those coaches we have tracked. We provide the athlete and their folks with the scripted response for the thank you – follow up. This is the first step in the process – it’s all about making connections and getting your foot in the door. We continue this process to hundreds of college coaching staffs thus creating a buzz about our athletes – all the while building them as a “Brand”!
There are many other common sense approaches and techniques we use to establish and cultivate connections with college coaches for our athletes. For example –
College Camps & Tournaments – many sports camps & tournaments are money making opportunities for those entities who sponsor these events; many are attended by college coaches from other programs to scout prospective athletes. Most major events have web pages highlighting the cost, location, dates, etc. as well as the list of college coaches who may be in attendance. We contact each college coach listed as attending with our athletes information to include: web page profile, video links, jersey number, game schedule, field location, travel team coaches name, email, cell, etc. At camps coaches are allowed to talk to athletes when they are on campus: often seeking out our athletes to make an introduction on site.
Tournaments are a different story. Coaches may not be able to talk to the athlete directly during these events, but you will see them on site and know that they have your information – YOU ARE ON THEIR RADAR!!
Our company, 22 + years in business, is known to be a conduit of talent throughout the country. Many coaches will open up an email from us over others they receive. They literally get hundreds of emails daily – there is an art to writing a subject line to get them to open it. We have a game plan for you… contact us today!
