Why academics + athletics = success

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!

Who we are looking for

Who we are looking for

Athletes come in all shapes and sizes and possess various abilities. Their educational background can be just as diverse. For that reason, we treat each applicant individually.

We are not looking for the ‘best’ candidate. We are looking for students who possess the following

No one can guarantee admission to any school. Our selective and personal focus often results in the acceptance of our candidates into their top school choices.

We work closely with coaches and admission officers to guide families through the process. We are with families through all phases of the application process.

Thank you to the following clients who have provided their testimonies

Derrick “Pie” Bell was recommended to us by a close family friend. We found him at the right time. We had a growing son who was athletic, smart and looking for a new high school where he could compete at a high level. Derrick immediately took on Qadeer as a project and changed his whole approach to training, nutrition, competition and he literally grew up before our eyes. We always knew he had the potential and natural ability but Derrick took him to the next level.

It was a noticeable jump for him and next thing we knew our son was training with fellow young elite athletes and holding his own. His physique changed. His stamina improved. He got faster and stronger. He went from doing just enough to finish drills to asking for more every chance he got.

Derrick also worked with us to secure a good boarding school where he would have the opportunity to play and improve. Qadeer landed at St. Thomas More, excelled inside and outside the classroom and eventually made it to UAlbany, where he plays Wide Receiver today. Derrick’s program works. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone.

Thank you Pie Bell!

Training with GP was one of the best decisions I ever I made. The amount of knowledge and focus that I received from my trainer was beyond helpful. He is so hands on and I leave with no questions unanswered.

As a result of me training with GP, I am in the best shape of my life and managing it while being away at school.
My strength and speed was where it needed to be to excel at the collegiate level, thanks to the help of my trainer at GP.

During her last semester of her senior year she received two job offers, one from NYU-Poly as a Sports Information Director and the other from The New York Knicks working in their Field Marketing Department.

My name is Jetaun Crocker and my family has known Derrick Bell for about 4 years. We met Derrick when he was providing speed and agility training as a consultant for the Jamaica Bulldog Youth Football team in Queens, NY.

My 11 year old son bonded with him throughout the training series and learned a wealth of personal fitness knowledge. Impressed with the results my son attained in a short period of time, we engaged Derrick as a personal trainer. The services provided with this training were above and beyond expectations. He was interested in my son’s total being and once he learned of his aspirations to play professional football, he began a different level of motivating and mentoring. Derrick educated us on the various education options out there for young, intelligent athletes and we were intrigued. He told us about various boarding and preparatory schools and the future opportunities they provide.

My husband and I were overwhelmed with all the options and needed guidance. There were about 20 schools initially presented and they all offered top grade education with excellent graduation rates into Universities that offered both full and partial scholarships. We hired Derrick as our educational consultant and he completely managed all aspects of the high school search, preparation, application and interview processes. He kept us abreast of middle school specialized exam preparations and deadlines, scheduled primary meetings with the schools and really held our hands throughout the process. The service he provided was truly priceless as we didn’t have the bandwidth to manage on our own between work and 4 children. As a result of Derrick’s efforts, my son was accepted into Trinity
Pawling Preparatory and Boarding School. Currently, he is a sophomore and is performing at the highest level. Derrick still keeps in touch with my son during the school year and provides personal training in the summer months. My family is very pleased with him, and we highly recommend him to anyone interested in following a similar path.
