As video becomes more crucial than ever for player development and recruiting, Pipeline SC is committed to providing it’s teams with new and innovative ways to reach college coaches.
Trace iD, Trace’s own recruiting platform, allows players to create the ultimate highlight reel and take control of their own recruiting process. Players simply select their best match moments, add them to their Trace iD, and seamlessly share the playlist link with college coaches across the country. It’s how one ECNL player managed to secure a spot on a D1 College Soccer team amidst the pandemic.
