– Eliminating Traditional Scouting Barriers
– Gives Emerging Athletes Ability to ‘Be Discovered’ From Anywhere in the World at Anytime
Los Angeles, CA – November 2, 2022 – ScoutUs Pro, the most technologically advanced athlete scouting platform on the market, announced today its launch as well as its leadership staff and advisory board consisting of athletes, coaches, and agents from Major League Baseball, professional soccer, MMA and boxing.
The ScoutUS Pro app, available on the Apple App Store (iOS) and Google Play Store (Android), allows emerging athletes to instantly download videos and information into a database. It then allows scouts to discover and connect with those athletes from anywhere around the world, at any time, right from the palm of their hands. It can also help professional athletes to connect with opportunities across the globe.
Until now, scouts were required to physically travel from country to country to identify, meet and sign talent – a time consuming, inefficient, and costly process that didn’t guarantee success.
The ScoutUs Pro website and app has been created to solve this problem. ScoutUS Pro will also focus on linking scouts with emerging athletes from under-represented countries around the world.
What professional athletes are saying about ScoutUs Pro:
“The unbelievable experiences that I am having thanks to my soccer career will truly stay with me forever. Just a few weeks ago, I walked onto the field at Wembley to fireworks and a crowd like no other – that’s why I am partnering with ScoutUS Pro because I want to help emerging athletes around the world reach their goals and hopefully have experiences like I am having.” – Sofia Huerta, Professional soccer player
“I was recruited by only one team out of high school. I battled my way to the majors and was lucky enough to pitch for the LA Dodgers and the New York Yankees. I always wondered why this process was so difficult, so time-consuming, and, to a certain extent, unfair. ScoutUS Pro will level the playing field. I am proud to be associated with it.” – Corey Wade, Former MLB Pitcher
“Breaking into professional sports is not easy. It shouldn’t be. But, if you have talent, if you have passion, if you have drive, you shouldn’t be blocked because a scout can’t get to you. ScoutUS Pro is unlike any other technology in the world that it breaks down the final barrier between players athletes and scouts and will help athletes across the globe.” – Brad Friedel, World Cup veteran and current soccer coach
“Scouts rarely came to see my high school team in Los Angeles. I was only discovered because there was a fantastic pitcher on my team, and they accidently saw me. That lead to a 9-year MLB career with the San Francisco Giants. ScoutUS Pro will make sure all athletes have a fighting chance and will make sure they don’t have to rely on accidental sightings.” – Marvin Benard, MLB veteran
“From baseball, bodybuilding to martial arts, sports is my life! Scout Us Pro is the way to make athlete’s dream come true. For those who have drive, this is it!” – Ken Yasuda (Pro-Bodybuilding Champ. Mr. Japan and current coach/trainer MLB, Olympics, WWE, UFC athletes)
