College Choices: Guiding the Scholar-Athlete
Former Division I College Coach Tom Kovic to Present
at Foothill High School on College Advisement
[Boothwyn, Pa.] Tom Kovic, former University of Pennsylvania Head Gymnastics Coach and current director of Victory Collegiate Consulting has been invited to speak at Foothill High School (Santa Ana, CA) on Tuesday, November 4, 2008 at 6:30 pm in the high school theater.
The topic Kovic chose to present is “Guiding the Scholar-Athlete.” The 60 minute presentation will provide a practical approach that high school student-athletes, families and coaches may utilize in developing individual plans for the college athletics recruiting process.
“I believe the college experience is probably the most important time in the life of our children that it will strongly shape their purpose and direction for the rest of their lives. The goal of Kovic’s talk is to provide families with pertinent information that will help them organize efficiently and develop the confidence needed to arrive at their best-educated college choice.”
The presentation will be interactive and provide participants with an inside look at college recruiting and how to position the prospective student-athlete as they navigate the college search. Communication with college coaches, developing a winning portfolio and building a strong and organized plan of action, are just some of the specific topics Kovic will discuss. The presentation will assist families and athletes from all sports.
Kovic spent 19 years as the Head Women’s Gymnastics Coach at the University of Pennsylvania, where he led the Quakers to eight Ivy League championships, two ECAC titles and 46 individual conference champions. He launched Victory Collegiate Consulting in 2006 as an educational advisement service that assists families and their children in navigating the college athletics recruiting search.
The fee for the presentation is $49.00 and families can register online at: www.victoryrecruiting.com/pricing.html.
