IT’S A PROCESS to find the right place to commit to spend the next 4 years…how do you start?

I WORK WITH STUDENT-ATHLETES WHO ARE SERIOUS ABOUT REALIZING THEIR FULL ACADEMIC, ATHLETIC AND PERSONAL POTENTIAL IN COLLEGE.

The commitment package work begins as early as sophomore year and ends when the student-athlete has committed and signed to play for a college sports team. During that time, we will 1) identify and prioritize goals 2) develop a plan for achieving them, and 3) solve any problems or challenges that emerge along the way.

COMMITMENT PACKAGE BASIC COMPONENTS:

FAMILY KICKOFF

Initial conversations and intake forms address the student-athlete’s academic history, athletic profile, what leads him/her to want to play sports in college, academic interests, financial considerations, schools and teams already considered, video creation recommendations, and course selection mapping.

TEAM AND SCHOOL IDENTIFICATION

I will work with the family to create an individualized list with a minimum of 20 schools in the student-athlete’s athletic and academic range, and identify factors like school location, size, selectivity and financial aid/scholarship availability.

PRIVATE STUDENT-ATHLETE SESSIONs

These sessions establish a level of
familiarity between the student-athlete and myself, so the student-athlete feels comfortable asking me any questions and sharing any concerns that pop up along the way. Additionally, we will discuss hopes, dreams and fears and the impact of playing college sports.

ASSESSMENT

This testing helps to identify strengths, what the student-athlete stands to gain through college sports, how he/she can grow and what will be his/her unique contribution to a team.

U

RESEARCH

I will perform research to determine team dynamics and team culture for the schools and teams on our list. This will help narrow the list down to the final 5-10 schools with teams that will best support the student-athlete for four years.

ACTION PLAN DESIGN & IMPLEMENTATION

This is a fluid timeline that includes date suggestions for SAT/ACT prep and testing, essay completion phasing, recruiting dates and dead periods, when and which coaches to connect with, and when and where to visit and how to do it! Throughout the process, I will regularly check in with the student- athlete and family to ensure we are staying on track.

SKILLS INSTRUCTION

This is a hallmark of the commitment package. Recruiting etiquette for the entire family will be discussed including tips for communication with coaches, team visits, social media as well as family responsibility and accountability.

COACH ON CALL

Sometimes a student-athlete needs quick guidance on how to respond to a coach’s text or how to manage a real-time recruiting situation. Sometimes a family member wants to run a decision by me just to provide a little extra confidence. I am accessible via email and messaging to help.

DECISION MAKING

Over the course of our time together, we will utilize monthly “check-in” sessions to discuss options and assist with decision making.

Commitment Package

 Bronze, Silver & Gold Packages Available.  

It is recommended for student-athletes to start the commitment package as early as possible in high school.

Coach Amy Bryant focuses on developing a person as a whole- through academics, sports and personal well-being. One of the most valuable lessons she taught me was to to take a step back, think about the big picture and focus on one step at a time … success and individual fulfillment will follow.
