College recruiting information session in Comox for high school athletes

Demanding school workloads combined with heavy training and competition schedules makes it difficult for student athletes to keep pace and fulfil their dreams.

School District 71 and Navigate (NIDES) School, one of BC’s premier online learning schools have joined forces with Bill Green and Triple Play Athletics to offer support for busy student athletes, dancers and performers. For the past several years this partnership has offered parents and students the opportunity to develop detailed recruiting plans and to put them into action using a series of Ministry of Education approved courses, known as Performance Athletic Custom Education (PACE).

This innovative program has made a significant difference in the lives of hundreds of student athletes across the province, many of whom have gone on to play at the college, university, provincial, national and professional levels.

Green has been inspiring college-bound student athletes for the past decade. His desire to assist student athletes was spurred when his son, Taylor, went through the college system to fulfil his dreams of playing for the Canadian national baseball team and the MLB Milwaukee Brewers.

“Student athletes need to take charge of their futures and PACE allows them to do that,” he said. “It is important that student athletes are proactive in their recruiting efforts and don’t sit back and wait to be recruited or hope their coach will get them a scholarship.”

PACE and Triple Play Athletics are hosting a college recruiting information session at Mark Isfeld High School on Thursday, March 7 at 6:30 p.m., Room 100.

Parents and student athletes of all sports from Grades 7-12 are encouraged to attend.
