Our Mission & Values
At Prestige Worldwide Sports Academy our mission is to provide an environment where student-athletes can expand their potential – athletically, academically, and personally.
We foster an environment of discipline, commitment, hard work, teamwork, character development, and athletic growth to better enhance and prepare the student-athlete for the college experience.
Competitive Game Schedule
The best way to get better is by game experience, which is why we have regional and national opponents in our game schedules that allow our athletes to gain valuable experience while getting ample playing time which then, in turn, becomes game film to assist in the college placement process.
Working in a more specific setting to enhance skills and develop new skill sets to improve the player’s ability and recruit ability. Instruction will be on the same level and intensity of college-level programs. This type of instruction will be at the forefront of our overall plan to make bigger, better, faster, and stronger athletes.
This crucial component will assist the player in reviewing practice and games with a coach and on their own. Learning how to watch and breakdown film is extremely beneficial for the player as it can give them an advantage once in college in having extensive experience in this vital aspect of playing college athletics.
A state of the art weight room at the housing facility will allow the players for preparing for college athletics with college-level training regiments. Learning FORM, PROGRESSION AND REST, and RECOVERY will be pillars of all the weight training and conditioning programs the players will follow.
During our enrollment process players will get a transcript evaluation to determine their current standing in regards to meeting eligibility requirements within the NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA. The evaluation can consist of high school and/or college transcripts.
Athletic Improvement and Exposure
Competitive Game/Match Schedules, Individual Instruction, Film Study, and Weight Training/Conditioning will be at the core of weekly activities to get our players to improve and get exposure from college coaches.
Take the right academic support class that fits your needs. SAT/ACT Prep, TOEFL Prep, ESL (English as Second Language ) class or inquire about our High School Senior year program (**addition cost for HS program)
The entire staff will be involved in making sure our players get the proper exposure and game film to college recruiters. Our extensive networking with college coaches will be utilized to ensure colleges on all levels are aware of each player in each of our programs.
