About Our Student Athlete College Planning Program

The key to a student athlete success is finding colleges that are a great fit academically, athletically, financially, geographically and socially, and if any of those 5 factors are out of balance, a student athlete will in most instances have a very difficult time with college.

While there is a limited number of student athlete recruiting courses and workshiops being offered today, the Youth Branding University Student Athlete Program encompasses far more than simply the athletic recruiting process, as there are many more factors that go into the recruiting process than simply generating interest from college coaches and trying to receive an athletic scholarship.

Our program is meant to serve as a complete guide for every factor that contributes to the success of middle school to high school studentr athletes wishing to play at the college level.

The Youth Branding University Student Athlete Program is broken down into 11 unique sessions that cover over 90 individual topics which provide the groundwork for all high school athletes that wish to continue their athletic career in college.

Inasmuch, the Youth Branding University Student Athlete Program was designed to provide parents, student-athletes, coaches, and counselors with the most detailed information on the college application and athletic recruiting process for aspiring high school athletes who wish to continue their athletic career at the college level.
