HOW DO WE HELP WITH COLLEGE RECRUITMENT?
Areté is committed to providing our 14s – 18s players the most comprehensive tools for making college contacts, understanding the latest recruiting guidelines and developing action items for each athlete interested in playing at the next level throughout their school and club career.
We understand that the recruiting process can be intimidating and overwhelming at times. Areté is fully dedicated to supporting each of our athletes in their pursuit to playing at the next level.
Working closely with Parallel Recruiting Initiative, Areté provides valuable resources in effort to work with Areté athletes and families before and during the recruiting process, and provides recruiting information and support. We also offer one-on-one recruiting consulting and services to our Areté Families, while working closely with all Areté coaches on behalf of our Areté athletes.
We are dedicated to representing our student athletes who have a desire to play at the collegiate level while also maintaining high academic standards necessary for success.
We work behind the scenes to ensure recruiting success through guidance, providing resources, follow-up and more. The ultimate goal is for each athlete to obtain a scholarship in order to ease the burden of collegiate educational expenses.
