Become a EASI Scout
EASI’s foundation rests on the shoulders of the men and women representing us as scouts. They are people with a genuine desire to help high school student-athletes realize their dreams of participating in college athletics; self-starters with a strong work ethic. They communicate clearly and honestly. They are dedicated to professionally serving our clients while maintaining the integrity of the company in their actions. They are dogged in their drive to enroll as many quality prospects as possible while providing quality service to every athlete they enroll. EASI scouts understand that the nature of our business is unlike any other line of work and they dedicate themselves to the tenants of our training and operational procedures. Our scouts are well respected in their business and personal dealings in their communities.
EASI scouts typically see the bulk of their field work occur late in the afternoon, early evening and on weekends when prospects are participating in their sports. Daytime work often revolves around doing ground work for existing clients such as reviewing their websites and videos, calling or emailing college coaches on their behalf, educating themselves on recruiting rules and procedures, or making on-site visits with high school or travel/club coaches.
- The primary role and responsibility of the EASI scout is to identify as many quality prospects as possible, make appointments to interview them in their homes, and to enroll them into one of several EASI programs.
- The nature of our business requires a scout to wear many hats at once.
- He or she must be an analyst (evaluating talent), a flexible and effective communicator (speaking with a variety of socioeconomically diverse population), an educator (explaining the details of recruiting), and a salesperson (the ability to enroll prospects). With these skills, a person can be an effective EASI scout.
The most important attribute a person must have to be a successful EASI scout, however, is a strong work ethic. While our business is extremely rewarding, success does not come as easily as one might assume. Like any other type of business, one’s success is directly related to the work efficiencies of that person. Therefore, learning the ins and outs of how to effectively scout, make appointments, interview and present are all essential parts of being successful.
A willingness to absorb and duplicate what one learns from EASI training and experience on the ground are critical success ingredients for anyone wanting to be an EASI scout.
All of our scouts are independent contractors. The tax benefits of being an independent contractor are considerable. (Consult your accountant.) But, the best news is that you determine your own income. If you work hard enough and get results, you can surpass even your own expectations.

We work hard at being the best.
We want the best and expect the best. Elite Athlete Sports scouts are dedicated professionals trained in the unique and specialized science of athletic scouting and in the sometimes hard-core, but always, detail-oriented business of college recruiting. Being a EASI scout may sound easy, but it is not. To be a part of our team, a person has to be on top of his or her game every day. Our scouts must be aware of, and respond to, the opportunities which could present themselves anywhere, anytime. Successful EASI scouts wear many hats.
- You must be an analyst, a keen observer of talent, personality and character, a teacher, an advisor, a listener, a friend and a promoter.
- You must want to be on-the-field scouting instead of behind a desk hoping the next prospect will call.
- You must be comfortable talking to a wide range of people in a variety of settings.
- You must be sincere and believable.
It is work, plain and simple, but scouting and providing service to young people and their families is rewarding, exciting and challenging.
We change lives for the better. Doing so requires a one-prospect-at-a-time mentality. Why? Each EASI athlete is worthy of our full attention and assistance.
If we do not believe in an athlete, we do not enroll them. We want to enroll prospects who have demonstrated a sense of responsibility toward their academics, their peers, their teachers, their community and their family. We will enroll hard-working, good athletes with solid grades, excellent character and supportive families before we take on a prospect who has excellent athletic talent, but whose grades are marginal, attitude is bad and whose parents are difficult to work with. Finding the right prospects, the ones who meet our standards, is not always easy, but when you do, it is worth the hard work and effort to find and enroll them.
What does this mean to you? Not everyone can be an EASI scout, just like not every athlete can be an EASI prospect. We expect a great deal from the people representing our company. Getting to the top happened because our licensees and scouts have consistently found, enrolled and then presented quality, high school student-athletes to college coaches. Nothing less would have gotten us to the top. Nothing less will keep us there.
