University Athlete Sync Instructions

Our integration with University Athlete (UA) allows coaches to seamlessly transfer tournament events and recruit data from UA to ACS! To get started with the ACS and UA Sync, email us at identifying your UA account administrator and that you would like to get started with the sync! 

Configuration Requirements:

  • Your ACS/UA sync is configured using your UA account administrators’ email address
  • The sync will be configured in one users ACS account

Once you receive notification that your account settings have been updated, follow the steps below to configure your sync:

  1. Login to your ACS system

  3. Click on Settings
  4. Click on University Athlete Sync Settings
  5. On this screen you will enter your University Athlete Account username and password before designating the information you would like to be transferred to ACS


    • Initial Sync Date – Determine the initial date you wish to begin syncing information from University Athlete. This will filter athletes and tournaments added to ACS based on the date they were created in University Athlete. We recommend setting this at least two years prior to the current date, as this will likely encompass athletes currently being recruited. (Ex: a 2017 recruit may have been created in 2015, so your Initial Sync Date would need to be 01/01/2015)

    • Grad Year – Highlight all Recruit Grad Years you would like to sync from University Athlete to ACS

      • Best Practice: Sync vs. Overwrite – Do you update recruiting information in ACS or University Athlete? If University Athlete, check both Sync and Overwrite. If ACS, check only Sync.
