Lindsay Takkunen - RecruitLook Scout

Hello! I'm Lindsay Takkunen.

Lindsay Takkunen will be scouting in the Greater Raleigh area for RecruitLook.

Takkunen was a multi-sport athlete growing up, and was fortunate to get recruited on a division one swimming scholarship. She has since dedicated her career as a coach and mentor for athletes seeking to further their education through sport.

Over the years, she has counseled athletes on the recruiting process, and as a result several athletes have attended universities in the US and Canada.

Takkunen brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Scouting Team at RecruitLook, and her strengths in consulting athletes are:

  • Coach and athlete contacts in several countries including: Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Egypt, Algeria, South Africa, Philippines, Singapore, UK, Canada, and US.
  • Strong knowledge of the college curriculums required by high school athletes.
  • Strong understanding of various recruiting strategies used by college coaches. This becomes extremely important when managing the expectations of parents and athletes

Throughout her twenty-years of coaching (fourteen years of coaching internationally), she has grown to understand the challenges faced by athletes. Many have a keen interest and desire to attend university in the US, but none of them know how to get started on the recruiting process.
