Press Sports is the first free app where athletes, coaches, fans and parents connect to view and share sports highlights. We discovered a heavy negative stigma surrounding athletes posting footage of their own achievements on social media. Because of this, we created a platform where athletes can build a fan base of people who actually want to see their sports highlights throughout their career.

It became clear that if athletes were building fan bases and bringing attention to their best achievements from whichever sports they play, college coaches would gain interest in following prospects on the app as they progress through school. Press Sports will give verified college coaches easy access to contact information, transcripts and test scores, so they can know instantly if a prospect has the ability to succeed at their school.

We are excited to provide families and communities a place to store all their most prized memories from sports. No longer will athletes look back on their careers with nothing but a few pictures and trophies to show for it. The time to Create Your Own Press is now!

Tips

FOR ATHLETES

  • You can edit your videos in the iMovie app if you want to put multiple videos into one post or use slow motion.
  • We encourage all athletes to post footage from the weight room, which makes it easy for coaches to see your progress over time.

General

  • When possible, use Wi-Fi, which will help the app function faster.
  • We encourage parents to make profiles on behalf of their children under the age of 13. This will allow the child to have a profile that covers the entire span of his or her athletic career.

FAQ

General

What are the differences between the types of accounts?

Athlete, coach and fan accounts can be identified by colored circles around profiles pictures as well as the banner at the bottom of them. Athlete accounts have greens circles, coaches have red and fans have yellow.

Coach accounts must be verified to get a blue checkmark and verified coaches have the exclusive ability to access athletes contact info and resume pages.

Athletes have the ability to declare their status as committed, uncommitted or not seeking recruitment to allow coaches to know whether or not they are available to be recruited as well as display what level they compete at.

Fan accounts are the most basic type of account and allow anyone to interact with their athletic community.

How do I delete or report a post?

Currently, you cannot delete posts. However, you can contact the Press Support Team at support@presssportsapp.com and request for a post to be deleted.

What is a casual athlete?

A casual athlete is any person who considers themselves to be an athlete, but does not compete at the youth, high school, college or professional level.

Parents

Can my under 13 year old child make an account?

All users must be over the age of 13 however we encourage parents to make profiles on behalf of their kids so that they can have a profile that covers the whole span of their careers.

Will this app help my child get a scholarship?

That’s our intention, although we are not a recruiting service. Press Sports is a tool for both coaches and athletes to use. If your child gets the attention of a college coach, that coach can immediately look at his or her Press profile and see your child’s progression in whatever sports they play, as well as know if they are an academic fit.

Can I upload videos of my child to Press?

Yes, absolutely. We encourage this because we want athletes to have profiles that display their entire athletic careers, start to finish. As long as all posts are sports related, they will not be deleted by the Press Support team.

Athletes

How do I make the video post without extra space on the top or bottom?

If you are posting a screen recording, we recommend you crop it in the iMovie app, and post an edited version.
