9th through 10th Grade Tutoring Program:
Just as in the 6th through 8th Grade Tutoring Program, we believe that education is one of the most important elements of long-term success in all areas of life. P2C Athlete Prep has developed this tutoring program to offer both personal and small group assistance to students who are at academic risk. The requirement for students who begin in the High School Development Program is to finish with a minimum GPA of 3.0. For those students who come into the program that have not achieve this GPA requirement, we will provide access to help through our tutoring program.
Rising Stars Mentorship Program:
Although education is the primary goal of our schools, students face other challenges that will ultimately influence their future. Some students try to figure out how to combine athletics with their studies. Some with fragile self-esteem align themselves with groups that experiment with risky behaviors. Some walk-in isolation because, for whatever reason, they don't "fit in".
The role of the mentor can range from "informal career counselor" to "trusted confidante". Experienced mentors are mature adults who students can turn to in times of confusion or stress. They are able to help students navigate their complex educational and social experience and also prepare them for success in life. They encourage; they listen; they advise; and they support.
The Mentorship Programs connect students with mentors who will always act in their best interest. In addition to being a trusted friend and counselor, our mentors also interact with teachers, parents, coaches, student services, and anyone else who can play a part in the support system that will be the foundation for a student's overall success.
Student Athlete College Preparation
There are specific categories of high school courses that students need to take and specific grades that they need to maintain to successfully participate in a college or university admissions process. It is important to understand that not all classes that meet a high school's graduation requirement will meet all requirements. This is especially true if a student is applying to a NCAA college or university.
We recognize that not every school has a curriculum that fully supports these requirements. We also understand that , even with carful planning, some students may benefit from course work outside of the traditional high school environment. Our College Preparation Classes will serve to fill the gaps for students who want to make sure that the coursework they take in high school will help them become eligible for admission to a top-ranked college.
Online College Marketing and Promotion
An online athletic profile is one of the most important marketing tools a player can have. It allows college coaches to quickly review key information about a player and make that critical decision whether the athlete is worth considering for recruitment.
The competition is tough. Some studies suggest that Division I college football programs have databases that have over 5,000 prospective players. Not every student athlete knows how to create a profile that will grab the attention of a busy coach or recruiter, and not every student athlete has the resources to invest in professional recruitment services. We help student athletes create strong athletic profiles at a very low cost - profiles that emphasize their greatest skills and accomplishments to give them a competitive edge in the recruitment process.
Program Additions / Enhancements
Nutrition (Health and Wellness) Program:
Proper nutrition is critical for both academic and athletic peak performance. Food is fuel for the brain and the body. It is the foundation for overall health. The right food at the right time in the right amount can influence how students learn and athletes perform.
We have partnered with trainers and nutrition counselors to develop a health and wellness program to help students stay healthy and learn how to "fuel" themselves throughout the day. We will use a three-fold approach: educate, provide, and connect.
Health and Fitness Assistance
During their 8 November 2017 co-hosted twitter chat, the American Council on Exercise and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation walked away with one big takeaway, "(e)exercise professionals in all communities need to get involved for these programs to make a significant impact in reducing the rising dual-epidemic of childhood inactivity and obesity.
Yes every community has a unique setting for youth activity (afterschool programs, youth sports, local recreation, and faith-based facilities), the Aspen Institute's PROJECT PLAY definse physical literacy as "the ability, confidence, and desire to be physically active for life."
To address this need, P2C Athlete Prep has partnered with trainers in the community to develop a health and fitness program to help students stay healthy, active, and safe. Focusing in heart health, endurance training, strength training, stretching, combined with how to eat to be at optimum performance, we feel that our program will equip student athletes to achieve optimum performance, safety, and continued physical activity into adulthood.
Academic College Visits:
Douglas Christiansen, Vice Provost for Enrollment, Dean of Admissions for Vanderbilt University sums up the importance of a college visit prior to a student making a final choice on attending a particular college or university.
"While a student can find out basically all he/she needs to know about a campus via the Internet, until a student takes a trip to that campus, the actual experience is just theoretical. Knowing the journey involved to just arrive at a campus is critical. We have had students arrive, after driving all day, who then reconsider their opinion of our school. We have had students who have traveled around the world to arrive here, and fall in love with our campus immediately. The feel once a student arrives is very personal, and it is one all students need to have experienced before deciding which school is right for them. A campus visit allows the student to experience the trip involved to get to the school, the people who are there, and the actual learning environment on campus. Seeing the dorms and dorm rooms, tasting the food, walking the campus—all these elements are critical to understanding if a student will actually be happy once he/she is a student there."
To that end, we will provide students who normally would not have the ability to visit colleges throughout the state and surrounding states to help them make more informed college decisions.
College Sports Showcases:
In order for players to get better and to gain valuable exposure, they must play in both team based tournaments and also individual based showcases. This allows student athletes the ability to showcase their talents in both a team setting and as an individual.
Additionally, these events need to provide more than just the ability to "play games" for trophies. Parents and teams spend thousands of dollars each year attending sporting tournaments that in the end come up empty on one vital goal; they don't provide the ability for exposure beyound the event.
We have partnered to provide both team and individual showcases that will do more than just allow the ability to "play games". These events will allow exposure locally, regionally, and nationally. No longer will parents and student athletes have to worry if college coaches are sitting in the stands. All events utilitize video live stream (or tape delay) and provide this information directly to college coaches both pre and post event; ensuring exposure beyound the end of the event.
