COLLEGE PURSUIT

Rise as One acknowledges that not every player in our organization will receive a college scholarship. However, we do offer an outstanding staff and top notch resources that encourage players to be recruited. First and foremost, Rise as One helps players to determine their goals, preferences, and expectations of their college experience. Through honest evaluation and assessment, we factor their level of play along with the information they give us. A list of schools and options that best suits them is then created. Next, we teach players how to be proactive by contacting coaches and schools.

 

Rise as One utilizes an accomplished recruiting coordinator who provides valuable information to the player and parents. Information regarding the recruitment timeline, NCAA rules, and other topics are always provided by our recruitment coordinator. Rise as One’s elite coaches play a key role in recruitment because they have firsthand experience with the process. Their experience and knowledge of the system makes them an extremely valuable resource for our players and parents. Our coaches are responsible for preparing players for the next level by developing their skills through consistent training and practice.
