Playced offers special pricing for team plans. When a team registers for a plan, the Coach's Dashboard is free and all the players on that team receive a 25% discount on any Playced Plan.

The player's Recruit Resume and Favorites List are linked to their Coach's Dashboard. This makes it easy for the coach to be involved in the recruiting process for all of his or her players. The coach can review the player’s stats, suggest other colleges and contact college coaches directly from their dashboard.
