Assisting the college bound student-athlete has become more complex than it is for the non-athlete. While getting into the best college remains the same objective for all students, the process and timetable are quite different. Research shows that being a student-athlete, regardless of gender or sport, increases the chances of being accepted into college. † This course will educate parents of 9th, 10th and 11th grade student-athletes to harness this process and leverage their child’s athletic ability to improve academic outcomes. The underlying premise of our approach is to focus on the preferences of the individual student-athlete and match the student’s preferences with colleges which share the
same attributes. The coaches and admissions offices of these selected colleges become the target of an outreach email campaign written to make each school aware of your child’s interest and abilities. Maintaining this communication plan increases the likelihood of your child being recruited and, ultimately, accepted. This course will assist parents and students make objective, fact-based decisions using case studies to demonstrate successful outcomes and will identify action items required to successfully navigate the recruiting process. †New York Times 9 January 2011
