Every Student-Athlete is Unique

For over 20 years, I’ve worked as an NCAA college coach mentoring bright and motivated student-athletes to thrive academically, athletically and personally. So much of feeling fulfilled in college is influenced by the student-athlete’s team and coach, so it is essential to find the program that augments individual strengths and supports individual needs. My methodology takes into account team dynamics, coaching style as well as overall college environment and how that matches to a student-athlete’s unique profile. My families report that my approach is effective. The student-athletes I coach achieve growth in college: in the classroom, on the playing field and into the future.

Amy is a strong and tireless advocate for student-athletes. She is not only an excellent coach but also a trusted mentor and guide. She cares deeply about each student as an individual and views competitive sports as an avenue for development of the whole person, not only as an athletic endeavor.”

Academics: The #1 priority

Prioritizing academics is essential to the work I do at Bryant College Coaching. The reality is that student-athletes depend on academics to prepare them for life after college. There are compelling statistics to back this claim.  The NCAA reports that out of half a million NCAA college student-athletes, fewer than two percent will go on to be professional athletes.  Academic interests and strengths must be kept as primary consideration when choosing a place to play sports AND study in college.

Integrity in College Athletics

Integrity shapes competitive sports into healthy learning environments: places where student-athletes have the courage to innovate and the capacity to learn from mistakes. As a coach, I am inclined to match student-athletes to teams with reputed positive culture and athletic departments that define success as an outcome intrinsically linked to character.

In my practice, I am committed to adhering to the strictest ethical guidelines. I comply to the Principles of Good Practice set forth by the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA) to maintain the highest standards of professional service and personal conduct.

Coach Amy Bryant trained me for “the real world” and prepared me for life in ways that I could not have realized at the time. Learning to work in close concert with a group, and merging my efforts and goals with theirs, is a skill that has served me well.
