Pleasant Valley High School - Library

Many schools have athletes that are waiting for that big phone call to play college sports at a big name Division I school. What do you tell them? Are your families realistic about their kids playing in college?


Jack Renkens, a nationally known speaker and motivator knows how difficult it can be to guide athletes and parents through this process. Jack has spent twenty-five years as a parent, teacher, coach and administrator at the high school, junior and senior college levels. He is funny, direct and passionate as he explains the real process of the college athletic evaluation process.

Jack has given presentations at thousands or high schools, numerous educational conferences, Sports Camps, Club Events and State AD Conferences.


Intensely involved parents are nothing new in sports. But the emergence of unrealistic expectations, recruiting controversies, even lawsuits have forced a shift in focus. It's more important than ever to know more than just the dates and regulations set down by the NCAA. Understanding the GAME behind the scenes can make a difference in kids' lives. Jack reveals CURRENT strategy for navigating through the process and explains how to educate students, parents, counselors and coaches alike.

A few of the subjects that will be covered:

  • Getting Families Realistic (level of play)
  • NCAA Eligibility Center
  • How College Coaches Recruit
  • Clubs/Camps/Showcases
  • How to Market Yourself (Don't blame your coach!!!)
