Profiles: Athletes, Club Coaches, and Collegiate Recruiters have the ability to create their individual Speed Capital Profile. For athletes, their profile will ultimately serve as their portfolio to college recruiters; it allows the athletes to organize their accomplishments/results by year (ages 4 to 18), add images and videos, and list their coach as a point of contact for recruiters. This truly is a one stop shop where all their photos, videos, and results can be conveniently documented in a central location.
