To our valued users:

THANK YOU for the support you have given ShowNxt over the past year. Since our humble beginnings as CAPTIV trying to shake up the world of high school athletics, many of you have stuck with us through our highs and lows and various levels of activity/inactivity. After months of bouncing ideas off of each other and discussion, we are excited to announce that we have a clear plan in mind that will allow us to achieve the goal we have had since our creation: to empower those who want to live their fullest lives through their passions. We figured, as a team, that the best thing for us to do would be to continuously update you all on our progress: what we are up to, where we are going, and where you can be involved!

Currently, we are developing an innovative social media mobile application that will revolutionize how athletes are recruited across the United States. On ShowNxt, users can showcase themselves to the world by posting highlights, connecting with college coaches, and hiring freelance video creators. This application will allow users to upload 15 seconds of athletic-based content to their respective profiles and like/comment/share the posts of other athletes as well.

Do you want to celebrate your team’s fantastic season with a highlight reel? Upload it. Did something funny happen in practice that you need to show the world? Upload it. Did you catch footage of an athlete pulling off an insane move during a game that no one would believe unless you had footage of it? Upload it. We want your profile to reflect YOUR athletic achievements and experiences.

Today, April 15th, 2020, we are thrilled to be rolling out a beta test of this application to a select group of invited users. Those interested in potentially receiving an invitation to the beta test should head over to and sign up on our waitlist. In an effort to truly perfect the operations of this application between the different sport industries, we will be targeting one sport in particular during this beta round and gradually expanding to more over time.

In this initial round, we will be focusing on aspiring collegiate soccer players. We want to understand a few things: What you upload, how often you upload, and how you interact with other athletes. Again, we want to empower YOU so you can share YOUR great soccer with the world.

Those who are invited to the beta test will receive an email from the ShowNxt team in the coming weeks with instructions, including how to download and use the app.

Again, thank you all for sticking with us through all this time, and we are excited to finally have something to share with you. We appreciate all the feedback, questions, comments, concerns, and ideas that you have sent us and that we will continue to receive in the future!

Stay passionate,

Max Goott
