Players will receive feedback during their recruiting experience. Our aim is to educate, guide and help families understand the road to college and its many facets in making the “right” decision along the way. Families are advised to be diligent in their search for a college for their athlete. Joining a recruiting service, making game footage links, posting and writing emails to coaches are all part of the lengthy process. It is suggested that each of these topics are addressed and families are encouraged to seek out the best recruiting representation to fit your athletes needs. Sports Academy coaches will be available to mentor and advise throughout the process, but it is advised that they are continually updated by the athlete and their family.
