Our college counseling is sport specific. We specialize in the recruiting process. People that have never been through the recruiting process before often find that they are either overwhelmed or waited too long to start and missed out on some potentially life changing opportunities. Can you navigate through this process on your own? Maybe. The problem is you only get one shot. Our college counselor is an expert in this field and understands both sides of the process having been a recruited athlete and collegiate coach.
Through Future College Athlete counseling you will receive the most current information. We are constantly in touch with coaches from around the country helping to better serve our clients. Our counselors' experience will be a huge asset in ensuring that our clients have done everything to allow themselves as many options as possible.
Educating and guiding our clients and their parents through the process is our goal.

CBSA Nights are an excellent way for student athletes and their parents to spend an evening being educated about the process and the journey that leads to playing college sports. We at Future College Athlete call it a journey because this process takes time. The earlier you start your journey and understand what's ahead, the better prepared you will be. CBSA Nights will walk you through how to build your college athletic list, creating athletic resumes, writing initial emails, calling vs. emailing coaches and when which is appropriate, various ways to gain exposure, how to ask for and get unofficial visits, timelines to work under and how they differ based off gender and sport, SAT/ACT test taking, and much more. These nights have been called "invaluable" by many parents, Athletic Director's, and Club Presidents.
Regardless of whether you are a division 1, 2, 3, or Junior College level player, you need to be educated. Sign up for 8 hours of valuable insight into college admissions and college athletics from the experts. Listen to current and former college coaches explain to you the timelines different sports and divisions operate under. Learn about NCAA, NAIA, and Junior College rules and how they may affect you. Get educated on what coaches are looking for in your resume, emails you write to them, and recruiting videos.
