In the College Prep Phase, an increased emphasis is placed upon collective problem solving -- not teaching an individual player a solution to a problem, but teaching the squad how to discern and communicate game situations and creatively come to team solutions. The Hotspurs player is resilient and adaptable, qualities that are valuable to college coaches (and serve the player well in the classroom as well.)

In addition to the on-field work, Hotspurs conducts the Player Enrichment Series giving the players tools to succeed in the classroom, be resilient in the face of the stresses of growing up, and, with our partnership with the NCSA, unparalleled support in college recruitment. The Hotspurs player and family are supported in choosing the right college for the individual, not just athletically, but academically and socially -- be it a nationally competitive Division I program or a regional Division III program.
