Why a Division 1 Athlete Mentor?

We believe the best way to support a young student-athlete is to provide them with an experienced role model they can admire and see as a friend. 

"Never having played soccer myself, I can't relate to what my kid is going through and it is nice for him to have someone that relates to him that is older and more experienced, but still young enough to be cool!"

Athletic Mentorship Program Description

Your student-athlete will be paired with a current Division 1 Athlete who plays their sport and position.  We offer a free consultation to help us pair your student-athlete with the ideal Division 1 Athlete based on their experiences and goals, and they will get to meet their mentor before you pay.

Athletic Mentorship Program FAQs

What is the recommended age of a student-athlete in the Athletic Mentorship Program?

The Athletic Mentorship Program is for student-athletes between the ages of 10 and 18.  This program provides athletic support and direction and is specifically designed to help younger student-athletes.

Can my student-athlete continue to meet with their mentor after their program is over?

Yes.  After the first 8 sessions it is common to renew the program for another 8 weeks. 

Does my student-athlete have to follow the suggested program timelines?

No.  We have created a timeline based on what most student-athletes have done before.  If you are looking for help more or less frequently, we can modify the meeting durations and frequencies to meet your needs. 

Does my student-athlete have to be pursuing a Division 1 University to sign-up?

No.  In fact, they not need to plan to play sports in college.  Our program helps with all aspects of your student-athlete's athletic journey.  Many are simply looking for an inspirational peer to peer mentor.

What are the payment options?

You can pay via credit/debit card or check.  Payments can be made in a lump sum or weekly.  You can read more about our pricing on the "Pricing and Details" page.
