Why should coaches and administrators get certified?
This is one of the biggest areas of need on the national scale. Because of the close relationship that coaches have with their players and parents, many time THEY are the ones that influence decisions during the college search and selection process. We have seen through our surveys and data research that the majority of the coaches didn’t have the appropriate resources or training to support athletes and families properly. Although they had the best intentions, 93% of the time, mistakes were made with paperwork, recruiting violations or general advice to parents/athletes.
What materials are offered?
Having the appropriate educational and athletic knowledge (and perspective) on this process is the key to giving student-athletes and their families the best opportunity to find a great college fit. Our licensing process for coaches and administrators affords them the opportunity to grow professionally and increase the qualifications of the entire staff.
