On Tuesday, October 24, the Athletic Department and College Planning Office co-hosted a program entitled, "Athletic Recruitment and the College Process." Friends Select athletic director Bill Klose was joined on the panel by Mike Fegeley, Jefferson University head softball coach, Katie Lane, University of Pennsylvania assistant rowing coach, and Casey Yuros, Ursinus College assistant director of admission and athletics liaison. Panelists discussed athletic recruitment preparation at Friends Select, key terms in the recruitment process for different athletic divisions, and the admission process for prospective athletes.
Panelists reminded students of the importance of both communication and acting with integrity as they interact with high school and college coaches as well as with college counselors and admission officers. They encouraged potential student athletes to explore colleges early in high school to gain a sense of which types of schools may be best fits academically as well as athletically. Our Athletic Department and college counselors will guide students to appropriate perspective colleges and welcome questions at any point in the process.
