Subject: Madrid Premier Soccer Club College Night - August 13th, 2009 in Pismo Beach
First let me apologize if you receive this more than once, my gmail account is duplicating.
Second, the purpose of this email is to invite you to come to a very special and FREE informational meeting that all parents of athletes who desire to play a competitive sport in college should want to attend.
On the Academic side of things:
Did you know that the math taken in 7th and 8th grade can have an effect on an athlete's academic eligibility in college? Do you know what classes to take freshman year in High School to ensure eligibility? When should you sign your athlete up for the NCAA Clearinghouse? How and when can a college coach legally initiate contact with your athlete? How many unofficial visits can an athlete make to a campus during their High School years?
On the athletic side of things:
What is going to increase your athlete's chance of being identified and possible recruited? What should an athlete do to possibly get the edge? Is what you are doing now enough? What schools can and cannot offer athletic scholarships? Even if your athlete is the best, how realistic is a "full ride" scholarship?
On Thursday, August 13th, Madrid Premier will sponsor an Athletic College Night at New Life Church in Pismo Beach to help answer these questions and more. We have several college coaches who serve as our panel and speak about their programs and give information regarding specific academic and athletic requirements and expectations for entrance not only into college, but specifics on the different divisions within the NCAA.
While soccer is our main focus, this evening will be open to parents of any athlete, regardless of the sport, who wants information on playing college sports. This meeting is also open to parents of any soccer athlete, boys and girls, that plays for Madrid Premier or not. We feel that this information is too important not to pass it on to anyone who is interested in finding out more.
We really look forward to seeing you there and feel free to pass on this information on to anyone you think may be interested.
Seating is limited so please RSVP as soon as possible!
Thanks so much!
