ACADEMIC COACHING/ROCKET LAUNCH PROGRAM

The Rocket Launch Academic Coach Program is a core group of graduate and undergraduate students assigned to meet one-on-one with student-athletes to provide guidance in the following areas: note-taking strategies, time management skills, academic goal setting, reading comprehension and test taking tips. The goal of this program is to model time management skills and develop a comprehensive plan to assist the student-athlete in the transition from high school to college.

The Academic Coaches are assigned to work with freshmen, new transfer students and upper classman that need extra support with organizational skills or time management skills or those who are not performing well academically the previous academic semester. Student-athletes will meet weekly or biweekly with their academic coordinator for 50 minutes to discuss their academic progress, upcoming assignments, eligibility issues and academic and career planning.
