Live Events...

Steven speaks at high schools and sporting events nationwide. Through his live and interactive seminars, he has helped thousands of people with the college sports recruiting process. Steve has also been interviewed as an expert on college recruiting by ESPN, The New York Times, The Daily News, The Journal News, WFAN Radio and News Channel 12 Television.

The seminar provides information that you will use to get noticed by college coaches.  High school student athletes and their parents need to take a proactive approach to recruiting. College coaches can’t see all potential players of who they need to recruit due to limited time and resources. As a result, many talented athletes do not play college sports. It is imperative and mandatory to recruit yourself.  A tactical approach with ideas & resources will be discussed so you can be effective interacting with college coaches. 

"Last night's presentation was extremely well received by athletes, parents, coaches, and administrators. The presentation was thorough and professional. Everyone was able to take something from it. I received nothing but positive feedback from all. I've coached for 38 years and thought I was very familiar with the process. But I learned from your presentation things that I didn't know. Only wish I could have heard you present 38 years ago! I will recommend this to all of my colleagues."

-"A Goal Without a Plan Is Just A Wish"

"The recruiting seminar was excellent. There is a real misperception of how the recruiting process works today. Steven charts out a plan for student athletes and their parents in a clear, discussion style format that empowers them to find the best fit for the student athletically as well as academically. Steven's accessibility beyond the seminar for parents, athletes, guidance counselors and coaches offers incredible support for our district athletes."
