• The value of Game Plan is the opportunity to be EXPOSED to college recruiters. Applicants will have a chance to build relationships with all level of College Coaches (for example-D-I, II, III, NAIA and NJCAA) to learn fundamentals and to connect for the purpose of obtaining an opportunity to play the sport in college while getting a college degree.
• Every applicant is taught the concept of “COLLEGE FIT” recognizing all divisions. As a result, we value helping student athletes to look beyond the Division I college sport teams. Often other services focus only Division I Schools.
• Education-1st staff also understands that 85% of college sport scholarships lie outside of Division I schools. That is why we have created a network of coaches from all divisions.
