We would like to welcome you to our second annual “College REC Forum”. This event is an opportunity for student-athletes, parents of student-athletes, coaches, guidance counselors and athletic administrators to gain invaluable information regarding the recruiting and eligibility concerns for college-bound student-athletes.
As NCAA rules are ever changing, parents and athletes
are responsible for keeping up with immense amounts of information. Increasingly, colleges and universities are encountering set-backs and miscommunications because incoming student-athletes are unaware of eligibility and recruitment regulations. This can result in ineligibility for a student-athlete or even loss of scholarships. The HRSC
is hosting this forum to educate the families of potential collegiate student-athletes to ensure that their children have an easier and successful transition into college athletics.
Featured Speaker: The Forum’s guest speaker will be Virginian-Pilot writer, Larry Rubama. He will be giving insights to attendees on how to skillfully deal with speaking to the press as a student-athlete.
Scholarships Available: A new aspect of the upcoming forum will be the awarding of scholarships to one male and female, who is slated to play college athletics. Click here for more information on the scholarship criteria that can be found on our website. Scholarship deadline: December 31, 2013.
Registration information will be forthcoming. Please save the date and spread the word - Tuesday, February 11! We hope you will join us!

Have a great week!

Testimonials from 2013
“My son and I attend last night's forum with his tennis coach and we were
very impressed. It was definitely worthwhile to attend and we were
able to get a lot of information. My son made some important contacts, as well. Thanks so much for offering such an event to the local students.”
“As a parent and a coach the REC forum provided a lot of information will allow me to better assist my student athletes. It really helped me understand the most current process and requirements and gave me a better idea as to guide my players to the college experience they are looking for.”
”The REC forum guest speakers helped me by explaining the difference in college experiences I can expect at Div I, Div II, or Div III schools. They also motivated me even more in maintaining a high GPA. Happy my parents took me there!”
