PLANO, Texas, Oct. 26, 2021 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — WOGA Gymnastics — one of the largest, most successful training programs in the world for gymnastics — today announced that they have selected CaptainU, powered by Stack Sports, to provide its organization with a self-managed recruiting software tool that will connect American gymnasts with college gymnastics coaches.
Headquartered in Frisco, Texas, WOGA Gymnastics is one of the largest and most successful programs in the world where they train all levels of gymnasts from recreational to Elite. They are home to many champions and many awards since their opening in 1994. While they are most known for their Elite champions such as Nastia Liukin, they are dedicated to helping improve all children’s fitness in a fun, positive environment with classes, camps, teams, parties, and more.
CaptainU allows athletes to take what can often be a confusing recruiting experience and make it simple. With the most comprehensive suite of online recruiting tools and hands-on assistance, CaptainU boosts the athlete’s exposure to college coaches.
“We are proud to welcome CaptainU as the official recruiting software for WOGA Gymnastics,” says Kathy Whiting, Director of Partnerships and Sponsors at WOGA Gymnastics. “This partnership, like our academy, is about helping not only our athletes but all athletes, further develop and showcase their athletic abilities in a safe environment. We are eager to provide this platform to our athletes to be able to give them the right tools to continue their success and growth outside of our program.”
Through this exclusive partnership, CaptainU is the official recruiting software for WOGA Gymnastics to provide support and connections through CaptainU’s database. Athletes will be able to use their CaptainU profile, which allows them to post skills and highlight videos, store academic information, and much more, to connect with college coaches across the nation.
“We’re excited to partner with WOGA Gymnastics to continue to provide gymnastics with the resources they need to get recruited and connect coaches at the collegiate level,” said Tanner Highlen, General Manager of CaptainU. “Our mission has always been to assist athletes and college coaches with the recruiting process.
