Lead in Sports, Lead in Life
In the Classroom
Trey Athletes meet regularly with their cohort in a classroom setting. In these sessions our athletes are taught how to make an informed college decision, the building blocks to an empowering personal identity, the skills to manage the demanding workload of being a collegiate student athlete, and the ways to take their skills in sport and translate them into post-career success.
The Trey Academy curriculum was developed by taking a high level look at what information and skills high schools athletes will need to perform at a high level in college. After over a year of work, the curriculum is the culmination of the Trey’s expertise in the field of education and the lessons we learned from its pilot program. Our team identified time management, self-advocacy and communication skills as some of the key needs for our Trey Athletes. From there we created lessons that encompass a series of activities and learnings with the goal of ultimately equipping our Trey Athletes for success on and off the field. The Trey Academy curriculum is built to empower our Trey Athletes to be leaders in their sport and leaders in their post-sport careers.
