WHAT IS SPORTSHOPES?
SportsHopes is a non-profit organization that helps student athletes transition from high school to college. We know the whole, “getting into college” process can seem very daunting and confusing. That’s why for nearly ten years SportsHopes has guided countless students to achieve their collegiate dreams. We will do everything we can to make this a reality for YOUR student.
