we have recently launched a new social network focused on further development of Soccer Coaches, parents and players. It is called the Soccer Interactive Community Clubhouse and can be found at http://soccerinteractive.com/community. To be clear it is a complementary to our coaching education site at www.soccerinteractive.com so they kind of go hand in hand. I am not sure if you are looking for niche sites like mine?
thank you for your reaction. Well actually we will launch a total new version of our website www.theplayerspool.com. Now only in English but new site will have at least 5 languages. Here we will focus on students, ambitious players and ambitious coaches. Your site looks great by the way. Im just looking for interesting learning opportunities for coaches (internationally). This will be an important focus on our new website next to helping out students athletes to acquire a soccer scholarship. Not only in the US but for example also in China. 2 Dutch players (im dutch too) just joined the Beijing Institute of Technology and both have a scholarship. Which is great i think. And this will help us selling training trips from Asia to Europe with our service www.trainingtrips.eu.
So im actually just looking around and looking for interesting opportunities. Im always open for ideas..
Hi Brad thanks for replying. I checked your website which is looking great. But to be honest till now not much is going on there (only 83 profiles). Do you have a marketing strategy or do you expect a viral effect will occur? What is the actual benefit for someone to get a profile on sportsjungle.com? And another thing i do not understand is that you are talking about sportsjungle being a network where fans share their sportslive and at the same time you are talking about "showcase your talent". The latter is for prospective student athletes i assume.. so whats your aim?

Finally, two sports teams that get it!

How did E mail become the “other” white meat? While everyone is going crazy over social media, I suspect Email is getting overlooked and underutilized by many professional sports teams. With this suspicion on my brain I set out recently to do a little research using baseball teams as my subjects. The results of my [...]

If America’s major universities want to engage avid sports fans during live events, they should pay more attention to Twitter than Facebook, and they should forget about Foursquare altogether; At least what our data seem to be saying. As part of our ongoing “Social Sports Poll,” we recently surveyed social media fans and followers of [...]
