Frequently Asked Questions:
Did you discontinue the Trial Memberships? Yes. The price is $24.95. If it were $50-75 a season, then it might make sense, but not for $24.95. (It recently cost me over $9 for a meal deal offer at Subway, so relative to other purchases, $24.95 really is a deal). Many members will use this service 20 hours a season. That is about $1.25 per hour. That is a far better value than if you went to the movies or purchased books, music, magazines, or newspapers. Ancestry.com varies from $12.95 to $22.95 per month. Angies' List is approximately $60 per year. TennisRecruiting.net costs $49.95 per year.
For those who cannot afford $24.95, please contact me via Feedback and I will have you do a service project that is associated with my Ohio Graduation Test project. If this web site entertains or informs you for 5-10 hours a season, then you will be asked to spend 5-10 hours of service to help others.
Are you distributing free memberships? Yes. Even though it would be great if I could become a thousand-aire from this effort, this site was created to recognize and benefit the kids. Others who can recognize and benefit the kids include members of the press and college coaches. If they request memberships, they will be provided memberships free of charge. Hopefully this will promote additional newspaper articles from the press and more interest in Central Ohio players from the college coaches. Members of the press or college coaches need to sign up for the $24.95 membership and then contact me to request a complimentary membership. Members of the press need to refer to this web site at least once a season in their articles, just as this web site provides attribution to newspaper articles..
May I share my membership with others? To a degree, but please share this with only with your immediate family. This falls under the common-sense rule. If the grandmother in Minneapolis wants to see her grandchild's results once in a while, that's great. Sharing your membership with friends is not permitted. Usage will be monitored. Also note that Player Profile reports are an excellent way to share results of your favorite player.
If I join near the end of the season, what will my cost be? It will increase. This is a rather unique service because the data becomes more valuable as the season progresses.
Do you have any money making opportunities for the teams? Yes. To make a bit of money for your team and for Gerber Analytics, LLC , teams may sell up to two ads on their team's report page. I want $75 and you may sell them for $125 - $150. These ads need to be non-tennis-related. Good examples include your mom or dad's business, doctors, dentists, pizza shops, and real-estate agents. (Just look in your football program for potential advertisers.) Email the ads (160 x 400 pixels) to me for prior approval before you sell them. The ads would run on your team's page (for the boys season) from "now" until August 5, 2014. If you need help in creating an ad, assistance will be provided. The ad above in the right-hand side bar is a great example.
