The month of February brought the MaxPreps headquarters a TON of rain, but that didn't stop us from staying busy. From adding all new podcast shows (not just new podcast episodes), real coach interviews, big app updates and National Signing Day -- February 2019 was quite the busy one. Take a look at the top highlights we've pulled together for this month:

What's Happening at MaxPreps

Real coaches, real answers.

We were lucky enough to have a total of 15 high school coaches visit the MaxPreps headquarters here in El Dorado Hills, CA this month. We asked coaches if they'd be willing to spare some time for us to pick their brain through interviews and small exercises--and these brave coaches said yes! Not much is more important to us than hearing directly from the people who use our product(s), so having these coaches here to ask what's important to them and how we can improve MaxPreps for our members was really valuable. Thanks again to the coaches who took the time out of their busy schedules to come hang out with us, we had a blast.
