You can help your entire high school team with their college search with specialized features designed just for high school swim coaches.
If you are a high school swim coach, you are often asked for advice regarding potential colleges for your swimmers. You have knowledge of a number of collegiate swim teams and coaches, and can give advice based on your experience. But with several hundred college swim programs, you can’t evaluate them all. You would like to help your swimmers more with their college search process, but you just don’t have the time and tools to make it an efficient process.
We think we have a better way to help you identify and refine possible college choices for your swimmers.
LookForIt is a swimming-specific website that brings together swimmers, college coaches, high school coaches, and swim club coaches to help with the college selection process. Swimmers and their high school/club coaches can access LookForIt to help with the college search. And college coaches can access LookForIt for recruiting purposes.
LookForIt compares a swimmer’s best times against the top times of virtually all of the Division I, II, III, NAIA and NJCAA colleges in the US with a swim team. You can read about the features if you click on “I’m an Athlete” on the Home page of LookForIt, but one of the most attractive features is a personalized dashboard that reports each college where the athlete might be the #1, #2, #3 or close to the #3 swimmer in an event at a college based on the comparison of the athlete’s time to each specific college’s times. Athletes have a variety of selection criteria to narrow the colleges that appear on their dashboard (like selecting colleges by Division, by geography, etc). There are also direct links into the swim and academic websites of virtually every college in the US. And we link to College Scorecard which provides extensive academic, demographic, and cost information on each college.
High school coaches can access LookForIt for all of their high school swimmers. With the click of a mouse, you can immediately see all the colleges where your swimmers might be competitive. Colors indicate whether the swimmer could be the #1 (blue), #2 (red), #3 (silver) or close to #3 swimmer (yellow) at each college. Here’s an example of what you will see for each of your swimmers:
You can even display a summary of all the colleges where your swimmer would be competitive in a particular event based on their times (or you can enter a goal time to see how the list of colleges would change if their time were to improve).
All of your team members are summarized on your high school dashboard and separated into user defined squads like Varsity, Junior Varsity, etc. Beyond this, we track age group and college division time standards. You can even define your own user defined standard (like High School State Meet Qualifying Times). If your swimmers have achieved a standard, it will be highlighted in color on your dashboard.
You can also sort your high school dashboard to see all of your swimmers ranked from fastest to slowest in a particular event.
There are many other features of LookForIt that make it a tool that you will want to have for yourself and your swimmers including:
A college research center which links to eligibility rules, guides for the college bound athlete, and current rankings of swim teams for each college division
A high school research center which links to the high school state meet results for each state
A strength index calculation which highlights the swimmer's best strokes and gives an indication of what type of colleges might be interested
Ability to analyze your swimmers times against college conference and division national championship meets (if your swimmer has an Elite Membership)
Graphs of improvement in swim times with comparison to age group and college division A and B Cuts
Email any or all of your swimmers with the click of a mouse
Upload your swimmers' best times from either Team Unify or Team Manager
And much more!
