TRACK & XC SUCCESS STORIES

DAVID

 

RICE UNIVERSITY

Thank you very much for all your help and guidance throughout this process! The SAS system was a key element in David’s ability to be recruited by and sign with Rice University. SAS is a phenomenal organization! I was most impressed with how responsive their entire staff always was. We will gladly recommend SAS to other families.

NATASHA

 

UCLA

 Your program spread the word about Natasha and gave her a ton of confidence in how she spoke with coaches and handled the complexities of getting in front of her desired colleges. We appreciate the many phone calls where SAS took the time to explain things and what we should be doing with the coaches’ responses. In addition, SAS has an outstanding follow up system in place which provided us many useful tips on what to expect. That valuable content gave us starting points to talk with Natasha about her goals and what she needed to do to reach them. Thank you again for all your support and help with this incredible process. SAS played a major role in Natasha’s scholarship to UCLA. We will recommend Student-Athlete Showcase whenever we can.

JACLYN

 

UNIVERSITY OF UTAH

Zack and his team did a great job through the whole process. Their system works. It was a great tool to help our daughter prepare for college and college athletics. Their team helped us stay on track the whole way. If you are serious about getting the right college fit for your student athlete, this is a great way to help you learn how to get there.
