What’s the Difference Between “Favorited” and “Interested” Athletes?
SportsRecruits and EventBeacon allow you to create a list of "Favorite" athletes. When you "Favorite" an athlete your list syncs across both your SportsRecruits profile and EventBeacon account. Similarly, athletes can create a list of schools they are interested in on SportsRecruits, which also syncs with EventBeacon, identifying athletes who are “Interested” in your program. The EventBeacon app shows the number of your favorite and interested athletes playing in a specific event with heart and graduation cap icons, respectively.
Who can see my Notes & Evaluations?
To safeguard your interests as a recruiter, athletes you evaluate won't see your evaluations, notes, or favorites, only receiving a view notification. However, this information will be shared with other coaches on your staff within the app. This ensures continuity, allowing staff members to access previous notes and update evaluations accordingly.
Should I work in offline or online mode on EventBeacon?
It is up to you! If you anticipate having a very poor internet or data connection on site, we recommend downloading the event to your device beforehand. If you want to conserve your device's battery or data plan, offline mode is also helpful for that.

It is not necessary to work in offline mode. Working online ensures that your device is constantly refreshing the app with the most up to date information possible throughout the day should there be any changes.
Are SportsRecruits and EventBeacon free to use?
Both SportsRecruits and EventBeacon are free for college coaches to access. All you need to get started is your athletic department issued email address. There are no limits to the number of coaching staff that can access your program's account.
