Read these outstanding testimonials about the service:
"Thank you MJT and RY2C - Berk recently committed to Doane University in Nebraska for the upcoming Fall semester. We had approximately 60 schools express interest in Berkeley attending their school as a result of the easy to use RY2C program. Before we ventured down the RY2C road I’d heard of probably 30 US schools. UCLA, Duke, UNC, Michigan, Stanford, basically the same schools we could all name. There’s no way we’d have ever come across Doane in Crete, Nebraska by ourselves. I honestly don’t know how a parent would even begin to look for a school without RY2C. Hats off to you Jenn!
We had interest from a lot of NAIA schools, as well from NCAA Div 2 and Div 3. Doane is a NAIA school that we felt was the best fit for Berk. It was his #1 pick of the offers received and we went down to visit in late January. That closed the deal for all parties concerned.
Without Berkeley’s involvement in the MJT program and the continued support of Trent and his staff this opportunity would never have presented itself and Berk may have missed the opportunity of a lifetime. I can’t say enough good things MJT and RY2C, thank you so much!"

“My son was entering grade 12, having recently decided he'd like to pursue college golf. Up to that point, we'd put no energy in this direction, so the prospect was daunting to say the least. What a blessing to be introduced to RY2C through the MJT! Although I was a bit skeptical at first, it really helped us expedite an otherwise complex and time-consuming process, to get my son's resume and video in front of prospective coaches very quickly. He's received lots of positive response so far, and will be meeting with select colleges before and after the MJT Nationals in Arizona next week. I can't say enough good things about it. Highly recommended.” Shelley Phelan – Vancouver, BC
“RecruitYourself2College was an integral part of our son, Trevor, accepting a scholarship to play golf at Indiana University. Jennifer Hause and RY2C put together a very professional resume and cover letter highlighting his golf and academic achievements. They also provided us with a database of all the NCAA Division 1 schools with their addresses, entry requirements and golf contacts. This saved us countless hours! We sent his info to approximately 85 schools, hearing back from about 45. Eventually we continued contact with 25 schools and then narrowed it down to 7 that he visited before choosing Indiana. Many coaches commented on what an excellent resume he submitted. We would highly recommend RY2C’s services to anyone wishing to pursue a golf scholarship in the U.S.” ...Doug and Sandra Ranton – Waterloo, Ontario
"RY2C is the reason I got a scholarship to play collegiate golf in the states. It’s easy to use template with simple steps allowed me to put together a resume that showcased my golfing abilities in very little time. I started the process late so time was an extremely important factor for me. RY2C is really customizable and easy to use. Once you have your profile created, you can send it to hundreds of Div I, II, III or NAIA coaches with the click of a button, and the program allows you to customize the start to each message so that it is personalized to each coach. This eliminates the problem of coach’s receiving hundreds of identical emails, and gives a strong first impression. I don’ think I would be playing collegiate golf in the states without the help of RY2C."... Justin Wood - Unity, SK
Good morning Trent; Unfortunately, Keenan can't play the Spring Invitational because he will still be Stateside at school - he finishes May 5th and then has Super Regionals. I can say however that he is loving Maryville U. which of course came through MJT's Recruit Yourself Program.His golf is great right now - he's had good results and has been on the travelling team for every tournament. Again, thanks to yourself and everyone at MJT. Jamie Flemming - Sechelt, BC

“RY2C (recruit yourself to college) is a great website engineered to make the recruiting process for athletes painless and more efficient. I am a Canadian golfer who was seeking to play college golf in the United States. I did not have a very impressive resume due to the lack of competition and the ignorance I had as far as college golf goes. It was not until I was 16 before I realized that there was such thing as competitive golf and unfortunately I did not have very much time to build the ideal competitive record that some college golf coaches are looking for. I discovered the MJT (Maple Leaf Junior Tour) when I was 16. This was a tour that was designed to give kids all across Canada the chance to play competitive golf and potentially play college golf. It was through this tour that I realized I could play, and that I wanted to play college golf.
When I was 18 I tried to do most of the research myself and selecting schools that I wanted to go to that fit with my intended program of study. I built my own resume and cover letter that I would send to these coaches. Coaches are very particular about the resumes that they receive. Needless to say I wasn’t getting the feedback that I wanted from these coaches. I had spent a total of about 45 hours researching schools and programs and building my resume that I sent to over 40 coaches, to get all of 5 replies. Like I said, most coaches had already recruited their team members for the next year.
I spoke with Trent Matson, the National Tournament Operations Manager of the MJT, about my struggles with the recruiting process. He introduced me to this website which has gotten me to where I am now. This website is a program that builds each applicant a unique resume that is in the proper format for a coach to look at. It takes a little bit of time to fill out the information but it was only a fraction of the time that it took me to do it on my own. The website will give you a list of schools that not only match your intended area of study, but also teams that, based on your scoring average, would place you In the top 5 players. Based on this you can select which schools to send your resume too. The website will then send a personalized cover letter to the coaches of the schools that you select automatically. There is a decent price to the application for the website but it is much cheaper than applications to all of the schools that you are looking for.
As soon as I submitted my information and sent it off to coaches, I had replies within a week. I am currently at Maryville College, in Tennessee, playing Division 3 golf, at a great Liberal Arts College, that has an unbelievable academic reputation. I was fortunate to find a school that fit my ideal size and location. I never thought that I would be coming this far south after my failures with my own efforts during the recruiting process. RY2C is one hundred percent responsible for getting me to this great college where I can enjoy playing college golf and receive a great education.” Doug Whitten - Medicine Hat, Alberta
