The Jock Ad Hock brings all sides of the desk together in an effort to support student athletes and their families in admissions. The committee is also responsible for supporting and educating high school counselors, independent counselors, and college admissions counselors working with jocks!

We welcome any other “athletic supporters” who are interested in meeting and discussing current trends in athletic admissions. For additional information, contact the committee chair.

Making Sense of College Soccer Recruiting

In this recording of a Zoom webinar, Jennifer “JT” Thomas presents on student athletes and the college process. As a former college soccer coach at CAL and current college counselor, JT will provide insights into the recruiting process for all divisions of college soccer. JT’s experience as a college soccer player, commentator for the Women’s Professional Soccer league, high school athletic director, high school counselor, and current competitive soccer coach gives her a unique perspective on both sides of the student athlete college search. Hosts include Erik Ellefsen of Valley Christian HS, Bill Bufton of Valor Christian HS, and Steve Bluford of St. Ignatius College Prep.
