Since its inception, Sportrait has been relentless in its pursuit to bridge the gap between young athletes and their dreams of taking their game to the Next level.

To make it to the next level in sports in today’s world many times it isn’t enough to just be a great player.

There are countless variables that can make or break the future for many athletes… so rather than sitting idly by, waiting for that phone call… that recruitment letter in the mail… that visit from the school of your dreams… or that all illusive sponsorship… Act NOW and become an aggressive advocate for yourself, your child, or any athlete you see promise in.

Sometimes the difference between receiving any of the above mentioned once-in-a-lifetime opportunities and having your dreams crushed is as simple as having the proper network in place providing for your maximum exposure.

This is where Sportrait comes in…

Sportrait provides a one-of-a-kind social media platform allowing its members to create a unique profile of themselves.

This recruiting breakthrough enables users to cut through much of the ‘red-tape’ and political jockeying that has become the harsh reality in today’s sports.

We’ve seen time and time again some of the best athletes in the country fail to make it to the next level, not due to their abilities, but because they lacked “connections” (an insider that has the ‘right’ persons ear).

Sportrait has teamed up with many of the most respected people in the sports world today.

And through these relationships have gained traction among colleges… professional organizations of all sorts… and a laundry list of the best sponsors.

Relying on traditional means to reach the next level is like playing roulette – and if you’re anything like me, you don’t gamble when it comes to your future… or your child’s future.
