College Marketing Class

“Marketing Yourself To College Ball”

Since 2000 we have helped to send over 200 players on to college. Parents and players report that it was the most significant aid in their search for a collegiate home. Each year dynamic parent input has helped us refine and make the class a valuable experience. The addition of parents creates an environment that produces an entertaining process of learning how the colleges recruit. The discussion format answers all your questions.

The recruiting trail can be intimidating, confusing and expensive. You will learn how to incorporate professional methods and tailor them into a specific and individual process to choose a college. The course structure and accompanied work book provide proven methods of research and analysis in understanding the collegiate athletic process and lifestyle.

**Note…. This is a 3 day class will offered in November**

“In retrospect I can’t possibly imagine living through this tedious process without this class. I wish we had know this when our daughter was in high school!”

“Fascinating, I now understand why my son was so frozen to act.”
