FieldLevel, Inc. is a private social network for sports recruiting and scouting.
Tens of thousands of coaches from high school, club/travel, junior college, 4-year, and professional levels connect together to help athletes get recruited more efficiently and effectively from all over the world. Athletes must be invited and privately assessed by their current coaches in order to be searchable in the private database. College coaches have the option to search for athletes based on a number of different criteria or can receive recommendations directly from high school and junior college coaches with which they're connected. FieldLevel is free for both athletes and coaches; it isn't a formal "recruiting service," as determined by the NCAA.
FieldLevel operates in 7 sports and over 22 countries, helping facilitate over 18,000 college commitments after 2013.
Founded in 2008 by Brenton Sullivan, Kai Sato, Cory Ducker, and Jeremy Weir, FieldLevel was the recipient of the "Best Undergraduate Business Plan" from the Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies at the University of Southern California and subsequently raised seed capital funding from Reid Dennis, founder of Institutional Venture Partners (IVP).
In 2009, FieldLevel was hired by the University of Southern California as the primary software provider for all athletic recruiting and NCAA compliance.
In 2012, the company first launched the private network in baseball and expanded into football, basketball, lacrosse, and soccer.
In 2015, FieldLevel launched women's volleyball, its first female sport.
