With our College Placement Program, staff members will work closely with the player in reaching out to college coaches, self-marketing, building successful communication skills, and providing a training environment to prepare a future college athlete. There will be an organized effort to showcase those players locally and in the mid south who are seeking the college path. Referrals to area college coaches and ID camp opportunities will also be a primary focus of the staff for those players looking to play in college. Coaches will work 1 on 1 with players during the season in helping them to reach their goals and communicate often with players giving them feedback on performance in a supportive and positive environment that will allow the player to continue to grow and be successful.
