At The Sport of School Academy, Christian Buck supports student-athletes during the most critical times of high school or college through weekly meetings in person, or via Skype.
This program focuses on three basic components necessary to achieve success: Academic Psychology, Sport Psychology, and the Recruiting Process.
The Sport of School Academy was developed to help student-athletes become the best they can be on the field AND in the classroom. They will learn the importance of grades during the recruiting process, but more importantly, it will help them recognize that learning and knowledge is what will make them successful in school as well as in life.
