Event Logistics:

  • Student-athletes do not have to be actively recruited at the time of the workshop.
  • Events are usually hosted by one school/organization, and then made open to the surrounding community.
  • Workshops are typically organized by a school’s Athletic Director or Principal, but coaches or parents may either suggest the workshop to their administration or contact directly.
  • Coaches, teachers, or guidance counselors may also want to attend in order to understand how to best support prospective collegiate student-athletes.
