“Provide parents or guardians and scholar athletes a texting based academic and athletic planning, reporting and suggestion platform to enhance communication, improve positive behaviors and encourage each scholar athlete’s full potential.”
We are neither babysitters nor mentors for unmotivated, scholar athletes or disconnected parents and guardians. Our platform is structured to encourage scholar athletes to their full potential in partnership with parents or guardians and their family physician. All of our communications are with the scholar athlete and at least one parent or guardian. Our parents or guardians were and are our best friends, mentors and strongest supporters through what is usually a difficult time between parents or guardians and pre-teens and teenagers. No partnership is perfect. There will be difficult days, weeks and months. Nobody is right all the time.
Our suggestions are starting points and benchmarks that should be used for reference during the scholar athlete’s journey with their primary advisors being their parents or guardians and oversight by a family physician. There are no guarantees, but we have navigated our grade school through college careers better than most. We believe, with our suggestions, NCRC scholar athletes will reach their full potential and graduate college with their parents and guardians as their best friends and supporters.
