The question should actually be phrased, “who is a PSA?”
This new company gets its name from a term created and defined by the NCAA...
“A prospective student-athlete is a student who has started classes for the ninth grade.” (NCAA Handbook, Definition of "Prospective Student-Athlete" [Bylaw 13.02.12]).
Accordingly, PSA College Counseling is for any and everyone who is interested in learning about how they can become a more attractive PSA and maximize their recruiting and college options. My goal is to help PSAs so that they will have a better recruiting process and a more fulfilling experience as a student-athlete in college.
The NCAA defines a recruiting as “any solicitation of prospective student-athletes or their parents by an institutional staff member or by a representative of the institution’s athletics interests for the purpose of securing a prospective student-athlete’s enrollment and ultimate participation in the institution’s intercollegiate athletics program”.
With a quarter of their team graduating each year, college coaches rely heavily on recruiting. They need to do this in order to have a successful team and be good at their job. But if coaches are trying to “secure a PSA’s enrollment,” which helps them accomplish their own goals, who is looking out for the PSA’s interests?
There are many college coaches who are outstanding educators who have dedicated their lives to developing others. But it can still be difficult to navigate the recruiting process -- to find the school that best fits your goals -- especially in the midst of stress and pressure from others.
PSA College Counseling is here to help! We put the PSA first and his/her goals first as we work together to navigate the recruiting process and identify the best fit school.
