The Sport of School Academy

The Sport of School Academy supports student-athletes during the most critical times of high school or college through weekly meetings in person, or via Skype.

This program focuses on three basic components necessary to achieve success in the classroom and on the field: Academic Psychology, Sport Psychology, and the Recruiting Process. The Sport of School Academy was developed to help student-athletes become the best they can be on the field AND in the classroom.

They will learn the importance of grades, but more importantly, it will help them recognize that hard work, focus, and creating a personal vision is what will make them successful athletically and academically - and throughout their lives!
