College Planning and Recruitment

2017 – 2018

Welcome to our new families and best wishes for a relaxing summer for all.   We are happy to share information with you about the upcoming year of College Planning and Recruitment services.  Our continued goal at SUSA will be to assist players and families with both the recruitment and college application process.   As we know, the process is sometimes confusing and can be overwhelming.  To assist you in this endeavor, we will continue to offer grade-level appropriate workshops for high school age students.

Kim and I will be providing workshops throughout the year to educate students and parents on the intricacies of being recruited and selecting the right college. Please refer to the 2017 – 2018 workshop schedule listed below for continued support throughout the year. Topics will include, but not be limited to, academic fit, player ability and recruitment, NCAA guidelines, application completion, navigating financial aid, and essay writing workshops.  Players will be taught how and when to advocate with colleges to obtain the best financial package and the importance of tracking demonstrated interest.

We will continue offer a complimentary one-hour college consultation to all junior (rising senior) players.  Kim has met with all interested junior players and parents throughout the winter and spring for individual consultations. If you have not yet scheduled an individual meeting and would like to do so, please contact her directly at kimhearney@gmail.com. Topics will include selecting a geographic region, cost of attendance, major/career interest, determine “Family Fit”, review of student academics and test scores.

I am looking forward to a successful year and season.  Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have regarding our services.

Sincerely,

Tim Hearney, Ed.D.

Director of College Planning
