VOLLEYBALL SUCCESS STORIES

NATALIE

 

LE MOYNE COLLEGE

Just wanted to give you a heads up… Natalie received her NLI from Le Moyne College and is planning to sign it this coming Thursday. We would love for SAS to attend the ceremony! We are excited that Natalie found a great spot for her to continue playing volleyball while pursuing her pre-medicine degree. Can’t thank you for your part in it!

LAKE FOREST COLLEGE

Zack and the SAS team were instrumental in helping me reach my dream of playing college volleyball. If you’re a student-athlete and need help connecting with the right coaches, look no further than SAS. They’re professional and they really care about their clients. Fantastic program!

NICOLE

 

MOUNT OLIVE COLLEGE

I just wanted to let you know that I finally found the perfect college and I am going to be signing early to play there. They made me an amazing offer and it seems like a great school! I am so excited!  I want to thank you so much for all that you have done for me throughout my college search. I honestly would have never made it on a volleyball team if I didn’t sign up with SAS. I’ve learned so much and it means a lot to me that you all were willing to take time to help me find a good path to start my future by doing something that I love, playing volleyball.
