An Individual Skill Assessment – Each player will participate in developing an assessment of her strengths, areas of improvement, and recommended collegiate level. The goal in this is assessment is not to terminally mark a player at a DI, DII, DIII or NAIA level, but rather to realistically calibrate future recruiting and training efforts.
Fitness Assessment and Training – Athletes in this program will undergo college-level fitness assessments, compare their results to current college players, and become educated on how to train and play at the next level.
An Education – College Prep Athletes will leave with a clear pathway to connect with the right college coaches. They will prepare mentally for the challenges of the college recruitment process, as well as the rigors of being a student-athlete.
