Athlete Viewpoint is the best choice if you are considering outsourcing data collection about the student-athlete experience. With decades of senior leadership experience in college athletics, their creativity, customization, and responsiveness are exceptional. The information we have gathered through their platform provides us with valuable insights into our entire department and saves us countless hours of staff time. In short, they deeply understand the challenges we face and we feel like they are trusted members of our team.
As one of the largest athletic departments in the country, gathering and organizing student-athlete feedback in a timely manner – while of significant importance – can be a challenge in terms of staff time and workload. Athlete Viewpoint has a team of highly responsive and accommodating problem-solvers who are true partners and collaborators in our success. Athlete Viewpoint took our student-athlete feedback process to an entirely different level with their ability to provide data analytics in a highly visual and easily understood way. Their customized approach is critically important in our regular evaluations with coaches and staff. We highly recommend Athlete Viewpoint to athletic departments serious about constantly improving the holistic experience of their student-athletes.
Athlete Viewpoint was instrumental in providing candid feedback from our staff and coaches. The information obtained provided a true gauge on the existing culture and has assisted in setting the four pillars of our athletic department moving forward: Recruit, Teach, Win and Graduate. I highly recommend Athlete Viewpoint to any athletic director stepping into a new department.
Mike Cross is a leader in the business of intercollegiate athletics and higher education that I lean on for guidance and strategy. To his core, his integrity, intellect and visionary leadership have been instrumental to me and my organizations over the years. Our industry is stronger due to people like Mike and his ability to help, inspire and guide others. I consider him a friend, a mentor, and a lifelong teammate in balancing the demands of our profession with our desire to provide the best experience for our student athletes.
Using the Athlete Viewpoint survey was a stroke of incredible timing. I received a letter from a parent upset over the lack of playing time and the inequities he perceived from the coach. My response was based mostly on the information gathered from your survey: communication with the coach, recruiting consistencies, integrity of the coach, etc. You have a great product that can help us as administrators support our coaches and help them improve.
Athlete Viewpoint has been a tremendous tool for assessing our student-athletes total experience at Utica College. Participation by our student-athletes has been outstanding as Athlete Viewpoint is customized with our college’s athletic branding and is easily accessed through smart phone, tablet or computer. I am looking forward to our continued relationship with Athlete Viewpoint and the ways it will help us better serve our student-athletes.”
I’ve incorporated the student-athlete feedback from the AV surveys into my head coach evaluations, and it’s really added another level of insight that we didn’t have previously, and has led to some good conversations with my staff.
