Athletics teach our children valuable life lessons. Participants learn the importance of preparation, hard work, discipline, time management, and teamwork. Participation in sports prepares students to compete and how to deal with pressure. Studies have shown that it also leads to improved confidence and responsibility. These transferable skills prepare the athlete for life after school.
For this reason, boarding schools treat sports not as an add-on, but as an integral part of their program. Many varsity teams compete regionally and even nationally. These schools also typically have outstanding sports facilities.
Schools provide comprehensive information on their academic programs. However, families often do not have the opportunity to get to know the athletic programs and the coaches of the schools to determine which situation would be a good fit. Guerrilla Prince Consulting helps with the decisions concerning how to find the appropriate high school situation or being realistic about where your athlete can go to college.
An added benefit of Guerrilla Prince Consulting is the access to the many local and neighboring states’ independent schools. We are committed to doing our best to work with the athlete and family to find the best match academically, financially, and sports-wise. An athlete’s goal should include getting smarter as well as getting stronger. Smarter, talented athletes are in high demand and
find themselves in better positions for recognition, scholarships, and acceptances in higher-performing institutions. You can have all the talent, but without solid academics, you will find yourself in a position with fewer options. Colleges are looking for student athletes-remember that!
