Orlando, Fla. – More than 35,000 college coaches in 34 different sports will have access to high school recruits’ athletic mindset profiles under a new partnership between Orlando’s The Right Profile and Chicago-based Next College Student Athlete.
It’s the same product that convinced Bill Belichick to draft Tom Brady and has been used by professional sports teams for decades.
“Our mental toughness testing has allowed pro sports teams to identify the mental makeup of an athlete for decades,” says Rob Pike, CEO of The Right Profile. “By joining with NCSA, we’re able to provide a tremendous resource for high school recruits and college coaches throughout the nation.”
The Right Profile uses their proprietary Troutwine Athletic Profile (TAP) to identify key intangibles of athletes, such as drive, coachability, persistence and teamwork. The TAP is at the core of the AthleteTypes system, an end-to-end online platform that offers athletic mindset assessment, coaching, and training.
The New England Patriots have used the TAP for all its drafting decisions under Belichick. The entire World Champion Kansas City Royals team was picked using the TAP.
In 2014, The Right Profile was formed to bring the TAP to a larger audience, with Dr. Robert Troutwine, developer of the TAP, as one of the company’s founders.
After all, similar results can be used to identify successful characteristics of potential employees for businesses. The company has released a broader assessment for professional service firms and corporations. The first launched service is Attorney Assessment for the field of law, and the company expects to bring their services to other industries, such as finance, medical and engineering.
“The high-profile success of our clients in winning Super Bowls and Championships can be translated into the corporate environment, allowing companies to hire top performers beyond a GPA or work-history,” Pike says. “Every company wants to be the best and our systems allow them to put together a championship team.”
Under the agreement with NCSA, high school athletes who hope to compete in college can take the TAP assessment. Those results can be included in their recruitment package to help athletes stand out from the pack in a very competitive field.
“The Right Profile’s AthleteTypes is committed to helping student-athletes reach their full potential, and that’s something we also strive for at NCSA,” says Lisa Strasman, president of NCSA, the nation’s largest high school recruiting service. “We’re always working to improve the college recruiting process, and this partnership will allow us to do that.”
