"In a very short time, College Sports Online has proven
to be one of the best investments our athletic department has
ever made. With an extremely limited budget, College Sports
Online designed a very professional, interactive and
informative web site which generates compliments daily from
boosters, parents, media and faculty and staff across our
university. The results and information are updated almost
immediately and I can always count on College Sports Online
being very receptive to whatever needs I might have. I
wholeheartedly recommend College Sports Online. It will prove
to be the best investment you will ever make."
Cal State San
"College Sports Online has proven to be the perfect
solution for our athletic website needs. College Sports Online
is solid when it comes to format, navigation, prompt posting
of releases, results, HTML stats, photos as well as service
and working with me on special requests. It is an invaluable
asset, an opinion shared by several colleagues in the CCAA. If
you are a one-person SID office like mine, I highly recommend
College Sports Online."
Intercollegiate Athletic Conference
Great job with the Website. It is really impressive and
only gets better.
In track, for example, one contact made as a result of
the Website culminated in a verbal commitment from a blue-chip
Newport News Apprentice
We have gotten a ton of compliments on the new Website.
College Sports Online has developed a standard
site approach that is geared toward more efficient site
development and maintenance. This efficiency translates into fees
that smaller institutions and conferences can afford.
The College Sports Online standard
Web site includes the following areas:
- Home Page Along with the
athletic department logo, the home page will carry an area that
has bullet items which are headlines and the first sentence or
two of press releases, scores and game summaries, or other
important information needing visibility. A link to the full
story will appear with each item. Also on the home page will be
a listing of upcoming contests, likely over the next two weeks
(continuously updated), for all sports currently underway.
- Athletic Department Page This
primary page will be a listing of the athletic department staff
with bios of key personnel, e.g., athletic director, sports
information director, etc. Provision will be made for viewers to
send e-mail to all those listed.
- Sponsored-Sports Areas These
areas contain content such as:
- A short overview of the sport;
- A listing of the coaching staff along
with bios of each;
- The seasons schedule;
- The current roster;
- Statistics (to the extent feasible).
- Archives Area This area
contains two items press releases generated by the sports
information office, segregated by sport, and links to Web sites
of media outlets that provide coverage of the athletic events.
Potential links are local commercial newspapers.
- Recruiting Page A
properly maintained Web site is a very useful recruiting tool
for smaller schools where the athletic program, campus, and
facilities are maybe not as familiar to potential recruits and
their families. College Sports Online believes that putting
available information on the site that will help its clients
coaches and promote the school is a prudent thing to do. Thus
listing what is required academically for enrollment at a
particular school and the types of financial aid available are
possibilities. One very popular item that has been used on every
client site is an online questionnaire. A prospective recruit
completes the form and submits it, with the responses going to
the appropriate coach (or designated recipient) for information.
- Related WWW Sites An area
will be added to the site that includes links to other sites,
such as national oversight organizations, coaches' associations,
If other areas are desired for the Website,
they will certainly be considered.
