Student-Athletes

Our goal is to empower families with knowledge and a proactive comprehensive game plan to maximize opportunities for student-athletes. Remember, if you are not a heavily recruited Division I or II “Special Talents” athlete, just meeting minimum eligibility requirements may not get you admitted to the school of your choice. If we can assist in getting you recruited to a DI or DII school … athletic scholarships may a possibility. In these rare cases, we will assist you with understanding options. However, the key is to let your athletic ability help with admissions into the college of your choice. For example, DIII student-athletes receive no athletic aid, but could receive a boost with admissions. If you meet the colleges’ basic admissions criteria, college coaches can help you get admitted. Very few athletes have colleges begging for their services. Student athletes can put themselves in a favorable position by doing well academically in high school, so that we can help you get recruited.

We provide the following services to prospective college athletes in addition to our general consulting services:
