BEYOND SPORTS NETWORK FOUNDATION, INC MISSION
The mission of Beyond Sports Network is to provide the most accurate and comprehensive database of athletes and their athletic information available to coaches/scouts/sports personnel across the nation. This is accomplished while offering a combine experience like no other event, utilizing modern technology to completely measure and assess a participant’s true athletic ability and showcase that data to coaches at the “Next Level”. Our events are provided at no cost to the participants and level the playing field for athletes from all socioeconomic levels.
The BSN Foundation will provide combine testing events at no cost to youth and high school athletes across the USA. As we collect the data from hundreds and thousands of athletes from regionally staged events, we will then target colleges and universities with the data and combine reports. Breaking the country into regions, we have identified how many high schools, athletes, colleges and universities reside in each state and region. The plan will be to work with colleges and universities to provide athlete results and information that are relevant to their recruiting needs based on regional and national interest.
Combines are exclusively for rising 8th grade through 12th grade student-athletes.
DONATE TO THE BSN FOUNDATION
Your tax deductible donation helps us conduct free, professionally run testing combines and educational resources for youth, high school athletes, coaches and parents.
The BSN Foundation is one of America’s first and only non-profit organizations dedicated to the facilitation of student-athlete careers in athletics. Through donations and sponsorships, the BSN Foundation will be able to provide professional testing, education, networking, and perhaps, most importantly, relationship building with the right people in the right positions, without the hassle of skepticism or fear of exploitation.
Today’s responsible parents of high school age athletes are vigilant and privy to literature, as they should be. However, they are assaulted constantly by an army of companies with lofty promises and few results. In conversation with any random selection of these parents, it’s not hard to ascertain that the culture itself is willing to spend considerable dollars for the opportunity to provide their child with a top-notch education assisted by even a marginal athletic scholarship because, quite simply, they believe that the risk is worth the reward and the numbers add up.
The unfortunate fact, however, is that often this is not the case. Scholarships are scarce comparatively to those who would attempt, and the cost of college can be high. Placement on college rosters is often left to “grass roots” recruiting. Let’s clarify. It becomes a mad scramble for athletes and parents to get the right information in the right hands and quite a bit of finger crossing that they may have an intimate connection to those who are viewing it. In other words, even in today’s age it’s the Wild West and they’re gambling, unless they have that one athletically gifted child on a transcendent level. Let’s face it, how many of these athletes are there? We hear the 1% narrative and there is truth to it.
FREE HS COMBINES
Beyond Sports Network Foundation provides free (professionally run) combine testing. We test and measure athletes in the same manner in which we test the aspiring professional athletes. We conduct these tests using the same equipment and methods to help identify athletes abilities and deficiencies in order to help them progress with specific training feedback and insights.
We bridge the gap between athletes and coaches. Providing the combine roster/stats/measurements directly to the high school coach helps assess their athletes and provide specific training to their athletes. We will provide the results directly to college coaches through email communications which helps inform them of potential talent from coast to coast.
ADVICE & EDUCATION
BSN provides educational content for athletes, coaches and parents in a variety of topics such as social media, reputation management, nutrition, speed & strength training, camps, combines, finance, high school recruiting, and more. Our goal is to provide a resource for information necessary to help athletes become successful on and off the field.
