Many high school and junior high athletes are unaware of the many opportunities and options that are available to them at the next level.
Let us help you find your running home!
Let us put over 30 years of education, coaching and college counseling experience to work for you! In addition to three decades of college and high school coaching, Dr. Crynes served as the Director of College Counseling at two prestigious college preparatory schools helping families find the right fit for their students. His professional training includes certification with ACT, The College Board and The National Association of College Admissions Counselors. In his educational career he has also served as a college admissions counselor and an advisor.
Many high school and junior high athletes are unaware of the many opportunities and options that are available to them at the next level. In addition, many young runners receive little or no help from their high school coaches who are frequently over-worked and have their hands full. Finally, most high school counselors are unversed in the complicated path to college athletics and are not useful helping student-athletes contact and communicate with college coaches.
We will help you understand the multiple levels of college running -- including NCAA Division I, II, III and NAIA -- and help you chart your personal path to the next level. There are over 1500 colleges and universities in the US with running programs, with a wide range of competitiveness and commitment level. Whether you are a blue-chip D-1 recruit, a middle of the pack runner who loves their sport and is not yet ready to give it up, or if you prefer the more balanced environment of a small school, let us help you find your college running home!
