There's nothing easy about being a football mom. On any given day we are the back bone of our athlete's successs and failures. We play a major role in helping them to set their goals, reach their highest potential and to live out their collegiate dreams. That job sounds glamorous, but to be honest, it can be difficult, frustrating and confusing. Helping your student athletes transition from high school to college successfully is a tall task. One that akes time, patience, planning, communication, sacrifice and maximum effort. There is a lot that goes into making sure that our athletes are prepared, qualified and ready to turn their talent into their greatest opportunity, AN EDUCATION. The maze of school work and grades, NCAA regulations and qualifications and recruiting can be so overwhelming. Not to mention football games, local and college camps, specialty training and keeping a handle on their social media and behavior.
All of us here at Candy Cleats know the struggles, pitfalls and stepping stones that are on this journey. Believe me, we have experienced more than our fair share of the "WHAT NOT TO DO". For instance, waiting until your athlete's senior year to figure out when he should take his SAT/ACT and the score that he must have to get into the college of his choice, not to mention what he needs for a scholarship offer. Only to find out, he should've started testing two years ago. Or to find out his 11th grade year that he has a 1.5 GPA, when he needs a 2.3, hasn't taken all of his core classes needed to get a college scholarship and he doesn't have the time to fix it. But we have also experienced the joy and the success of seeing our student athletes NCAA qualified, academically sound and a gradudating from high school with college scholarship offers from various division colleges.
During our journey we realized that there is way to make the process much easier. We've created a program to educate, inform, prepare, encourage and guide moms through the process of creating college scholarship ready student athletes, The Football Mom's Playbook. Meanwhile, making sure that you don't miss what's most precious during the process, the journey with your precious cargo. We are making the journey from high school college a sweet success for you and your student athlete.
