NEW SOCIAL PLATFORM COMING FOR ROSTER POINT
Roster Point Hockey is entering the social media realm of the online world. Our first platform was built with the purpose of bridging the gap between skilled players who were being over looked and high level teams that were struggling to find skilled players. The platform was never exactly what we wanted. Don’t get us wrong, it works just fine, but there were some mistakes made which made the registration process a bit tedious and long and it wouldn’t allow you to save your work if you started and couldn’t complete it in one sitting. Now that we had a couple of years under our belt and heard from many clients, we decided it was time to reinvest in the site. We’ve added some really cool features like Instant Messaging to allow not only players and teams to communicate better but also players and players can now communicate with each other. This will offer players to see what other players are doing with their profiles, they can speak to one another and share info on teams and other hockey news, participate in Forums and put their opinions out there for others to see.
The new platform will see players and team spending more time using the new features that will help them either get more exposure to the Junior, Collegiate and Professional Market or find the diamonds in the rough that are truly abundant out there. We know each year there are players that are overlooked or simply not scouted. Roster Point maintains that number is in the thousands. We’ve proven that our methods of promoting /exposing players is effective. We’ve had over 120 promoted players drafted from the site and most recently two of our promoted players were drafted in the 2018 NHL Draft. One of them, Cameron Hillis, drafted by the Montreal Canadiens in the 3rd round, 66th overall, praised Roster Point for our involvement in putting him on the map, as he said in an interview with Alan Mitchel on the Lowdown with Lowtide morning show on TSN Radio in Edmonton AB.
Here’s a sneak peek at just some of the new features coming in early August.
Players and Teams can message one another just like the can now, but Players and Players will now have the ability to openly or privately communicate with each other just like on other social media sites. Instant Messaging will be available to players and teams.
Teams or Players can start their own Forums and / or join other ones already started. Players could ask Coaches questions about scouting or recruiting or what they look for in a new prospect.
Get involved in developing content for Roster Point, share your game or highlight videos with multiple people at the same time.
Now Teams will know when a player is a Free Agent or if he or she has signed with a team. In the past it was difficult to find out, therefore valuable time could be wasted. Not now, players will mark their Status appropriately.
Players will finally have the ability to search for teams they are interested in playing for and showing their interest to the team. Teams MUST now have a good looking profile to entice players to want to play for
Teams will enjoy all new enhanced search filters so they can better search and locate players that their interested in.
The debate is still going on about whether or not player video is helpful for a team or not. We tell our players what kind of video to upload and it’s not the flashy Goals, Big Hits or No look passes that we suggest. Players are encouraged to upload full game film. Now they can upload as much as they wish.
The new Player Subscription will be $19.99 per month. This is a small amount to pay considering the exposure the player is receiving. The Team Memberships have changed as well and give teams 2 membership options, The Recruiter and The Pro Recruiter, $199.99 and $499.99 respectively.
Ultimate Exposure Package
Just like it has been so effective, the UEP will remain our staple service offering. The UEP is by far the most advanced exposure service available today and has been responsible for many players reaching their goals as they aspiring to play at the Next Level. Players purchasing the UEP will have their monthly $19.99 payments waved for the full year.
The official launch of Roster Point 2.0 will be before the end of September 2018. If you are an aspiring hockey player or a recruiting team I urge you to stop by and if you’re not a subscriber, become one! There is nothing like this site available and you’ll thank yourself for joining.
