Are you S. M. A. R. T?

S – Schooling. What is your GPA or your percentage in high school? Are you taking any AP courses? Are you realistic about your GPA and what type of school would you like to attend? Have you taken SAT? ACT? Or any SAT II’s (Top 100 schools)

M – Motivation. Are you motivated? Are you willing to follow up on numerous emails to coaches? Most athletes have to market themselves to universities and it can be very time-consuming.

A -Ability. What athletic ability do you really have? You should be realistic about your ability. Get an outside opinion; ask an expert in your sport to evaluate your skills.

R – Resourceful. Can you manage your time effectively?  Can you balance the demands of school, athletics AND the application process?

T – Team Player. Your parents, your athletic coach, your teachers, and the SAT tutor all play a major role in matching the universities to your unique situation.

If “YES” then, we provide a service that includes consultation, support and guidance for you, the Canadian student athlete. We will help you achieve your goal and compete in your desired sport and receive a university scholarship.

When should you start?

NOW!! It is never too early. The earlier you start, the greater your chance of success. Ideally, grade 8 or the start of high school is the appropriate time. If you start early, the chances are greater of having offers from multiple universities, allowing you to choose them instead of hoping they choose you. Remember, you are competing against a very large group of motivated, accomplished, dedicated athletes for a limited number of available monies. Most university athletic scholarships are offered to students in their Grade 11 year. Some are offered in grade 12.
