BASE by Pros can help!

Recruiting Consultation

$100/hour

Our team of former pros has the personal experience and industry contacts to help you better understand what it takes to transition to the next level and guide you toward success. Call today to schedule an appointment and let BASE by Pros help you navigate the often murky recruiting waters.

Marketing Consultation

$50/half hour

According to a 2017 CareerBuilder study, 70% of employers use social media to screen candidates and 57% are less likely to interview a candidate they can’t find online. College coaches operate in much the same manner. Playing statistics will get you a look, but your social capital will help you rise above comparable competition. Spend time with our digital marketing expert to review your online personal brand and identify areas for improvement. Bring your resume for copy editing, your jersey for a headshot, and we’ll provide you with an e-mail template for reaching out to coaches that will have you standing out from automated recruiting software e-mails.

Showcasing Videos

Starting at $300.

BASE by Pros has the video production expertise and sports knowledge to make sure your skills look sharp and are presented in high quality. Videos packages start with an Introduction and Hitting for $300.  Up to 3 additional camera angles can be added for $50 each. Additional positions are $50 plus $50 per additional camera.

So, $300 for the initial, one-camera skills video (personal introduction and one position).  Then $50 for every additional position and camera.

EXAMPLE: A comprehensive skills video featuring personal introduction and 2-camera hitting ($350), 4-camera catching ($200) and 1-camera pitching ($50) would be $600.

Cost includes cage rental or travel to a local field you’ve reserved.

A few samples can be found below. Our full portfolio of videos can be found in the Player Showcasing playlist on our BASE by Pros YouTube channel.
