college recruitment
College Recruitment

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.--Henry David Thoreau

Only 3 to 5% of high school athletes play at the collegiate level.

High school grades (GPA), attendance, and test scores (ACT/SAT) are an important factor in receiving an athletic scholarship.

Parents should speak with coaches and counselors about the recruitment process
