Not too many people think there needs to be a finance page in a sports portfolio. If they do know, they may be putting the wrong details on it. The finance and reference pages are as essential as every other page. This blog will show you how to create the finance and reference pages of a sports portfolio.

You Won’t Miss A Thing

There really isn’t too much involved with the finance and reference pages, however, they still need to be detailed and laid out in a specific order to grab the attention of coaches. When it comes to creating the finance & reference pages…


Today, the sports portfolios saga continues. This week, we have been focusing on sports portfolio academic and sports pages.

There is often some confusion surrounding the topic of the Ivy League. Someone outside of the United States knows about the Ivy League, and apart from this, don’t know what it means. Some might say it’s the name of a prestigious school or the name of an athletic department. Today, I want to clear up some of the confusion. I’m addressing the question on everybody’s mind, what is the Ivy League?

The Ivy League is a conference of eight North-Eastern American universities. The eight are renown for being the most prestige and elite in America. They carry academic excellence, have…


We have certainly experienced a few crazy months of uncertainty. It’s taken lots of focus and energy to keep our athletes moving forward, on the path to college sports success. The road has not been easy for many parents and has been especially hard for our go-getter athletes. It’s important, however, that strategies are put in place that will allow your athlete to hit the ground running. Yes, strategies had to change to suit current circumstances, and routines tweaked, but the end goal is still the same. Our athletes need to be strategically placed in front of the right people…


Parents right across the globe have been flung so suddenly into a world they never imagined they would need to embrace, and control. Here we are though…doing the best we can to provide our children with an effective learning environment. It’s not homeschool as such, however it is learning from home while under quarantine.

Still, how on earth do we actually embrace quarantine learning, and create positive outcomes, when some of us are looking at our children’s learning materials cross-eyed with no clue what it all means? It looks difficult, painful, and overwhelming. I know that as a University graduate…


While it’s no secret that we are in unprecedented times, and our way of living has changed dramatically, we must not let our athlete’s sit back and take a rest. We are now at a point where this pandemic has been around for quite some time, so it’s important that we are monitoring our athlete’s emotional and mental well-being, now more than ever. Your athlete’s emotional and mental state must stay sharp for their journey to continue on a positive and successful path.

You can help them, and show them, how to monitor, identify, and manage stress levels so they…


In short, a personal statement is an essay your athlete is required to complete in order to be considered a successful college applicant. This essay is different from the standardised tests and exams your athlete will need to complete. Those tests just give a rounded score on their level of academics.

A personal statement is an opportunity for admissions staff to get to see your athletes layers, so to speak. Their personality and the deeper inner side of their thought patterns. They want to see how your athlete can solve problems, be creative, and why they think they are a…


It’s probably no secret to any of you parents out there, that keeping our teenage athletes motivated at the best of times can be a challenge. So how on earth do you keep them motivated during such crazy times of isolation? We challenge them to keep their eye on the prize. We offer them a reward if you will, to complete their mission as originally planned. The only thing that has changed, is they now have the gift of time. The time that you would otherwise scramble to find anywhere else.

Times are changing, that’s for certain. But the show…
