What's the Word

The average student has the opportunity to return home for Thanksgiving and Winter Break, but the student-athlete often has to travel for match-ups. They are definitely not alone, as coaching and support staff make the same sacrifice of familial connection and work/study reprieve.

This dedication and commitment may seem insignificant in the glory of victory, but the efforts to get winter student-athletes to the field of competition requires many moving parts in the well-oiled machine of an athletic department. These student-athletes and staff are all guided by effective operational structures – when, if corroded, can exhaust resources along with athletes’ mental and physical health.

Collegiate Consulting provides studies and reviews to assess the fitness of any school’s sports program as well as ensure the wellness of its athletes.

Expansion and Review Prove Increasingly Important

Keeping up with your conference or growing out of it put plans in place that are both time sensitive and worthy of due diligence. The time for operational review and conference movement never ceases, not even during the thick of competitive play.

As Collegiate Consulting continues to partner with institutions of varying size and conference competition level, we are excited to explore opportunities for each new and existing client. There are several moving pieces to research and analyze that give our university partners an expanded perspective for potential excellence.

We thrive on connection with our college athletic community and we seek to champion their notable actions and achievements.

Please follow us so we can celebrate and elevate each other together.
