GT Beginner's Guide
Global Talent is a platform visited by sponsors, scouts & recruiters globally and is approved by the biggest leagues & organisations in the world.
Institution is a collective name for entities like Academies, Clubs, Universities, High Schools. Institutions are at the top of the sports pyramid, and add all sports and teams under their umbrella. Institutions who wish to, can also add more information about themselves in what we call a GT Scout. GT Scout will provide athletes with crucial information about the institution. If an institution wants to recruit a specific athlete they can register a Player Advert describing what they need and/or invite prospective athletes to scheduled tryouts, who in turn can apply to adverts by sending their GT agent (athlete CV). Scouts, Adverts & Agents are all gathered in the GT Market for easy searching and matching.
When an athlete and an institution match, they meet in the Team which has features like team calendar, messenger and GT Manager for communication, administration & tactics.
Everyone registers in the GT platform with a personal account. And through institutions and teams on the platform, you get your Role eg. admin, member, coach, manager, scout, athlete etc. While signing up, please make sure you enter a valid email address, fill all the fields, upload a profile picture and a good resolution cover photo. As part of the registration process we send out a verification email to the registered email address with an activation link, please don't forget to verify your email address and accept our user agreement by clicking on the activation link in your welcome email.
If you are under 15 years old you have to have a parent or guardian approving your account, add them by editing your profile and adding a Guradian.
VERIFIED Athlete & Agent feature
If you are an athlete registered by a team, your account gets verified by your institution/team. And if you want, you can add a GT Agent, which will serve as your sports CV from junior to pro and will help recruiters and scouts at institutions/teams to find you and offer you deals/tryouts or offer you sponsorship deals.
Institute Admins have superadmin access to the Institute profile and details. They can invite employees, register scouts, add and update adverts & teams.
Like Institute admin, Team Admins have superadmin access to the Team profile and details.
They can invite athletes and players, can add and invite coaches and scouts . All members of the team can use team calendar & team messenger. And all the team coaches can use GT Manager. GT Manager is a tool to organize the team and for tactics. The Managers are WIP (work in progress) and will be released one sport at a time.
If you are a promising athlete you should create a GT Agent, which is a very powerful way to showcase your skills and achievements in the most concise way, making it easier for Scouts to do their search and increasing your chances of being found in their talent hunt. GT Agents are shown in GT Market. One can easily share these profiles to others who are not on the GT platform.
If Institutions/Teams want to be active in talent hunt to finf the best sportsmen they should create a GT Scout which is also shown in GT Market. Analogous to GT Agents for atheletes, GT Scout is a condensed preview of the best your Insitute/Team has to provide to the current and prospective players. These profiles can be shared externally as well.
For more effective recruiting, scouts can create GT Invites. Athletes will know what you are searching for right now and can quickly apply. Players can also share these invites to those who are not on GT platform.
GT Market is a unified search engine and a meeting place. In GT Market, athletes, institutions, scouts, agents & coaches can search, follow & contact each other through our GT Agent, GT Scout & Player Advert features.
