Software That Puts You In The Driver's Seat

With the right mindset and the right tools, you can accomplish great things. We’re here to empower you with the best tools to make a college team. Our tools are battle tested. More than a million athletes and college coaches have used them to succeed.

  • CaptainU Works

    Since 2008, more than a million athletes and college coaches have used CaptainU.

  • We Believe in Self Marketing

    We’re not an agent. We don’t promote teams or players. Instead we provide tools that make it easy to connect.

  • Transparent, Affordable Pricing

    Our prices are clear, listed on our website, and the same for all customers. You can try it for free, upgrade if you like, and cancel at anytime.

  • We Know What It Takes

    We played or coached at places like Princeton, Wesleyan, Northwestern, Chicago, Cal, and Texas. We know what it takes. In fact, we wrote the book on it, which you can download for free.

  • A Single Network

    We believe athletes should have software that talks to the software coaches use, and vice versa. This saves everyone a ton of time.

  • We're Accountable To You

    We’ve built our business over 8 years without outside investors like the venture capitalists that own our competitors. That means we work for you: our customers.

Meet Some of Our Members

Athletes have used CaptainU to make the team at Division I giants, small, highly selective DIII colleges, and everything in between. The name on front of the jersey is nice, but what matters most is whether it’s a good fit for you.

"CaptainU was a fantastic site. I signed a volleyball scholarship and used this site exclusively. I found the site to be VERY easy to use. The communication was fantastic. The price was very reasonable."
