Earning v. Promising
The Wisconsin Lakers makes a clear distinction when it comes to a player’s pursuit of a career beyond high school. Outside of a college coach, no one can promise you a scholarship. What we as an elite basketball program can offer you is unlimited help and opportunities.
- Training. In order to become a college athlete, you must train like one. Our skills and drills sessions prepare you for the physical and mental demands of a college program. In addition to the practices, games, and group workouts, the Wisconsin Lakers can and will provided customized weight lifting programs to those athletes who are serious about their development.
- Goal Alignment. You cannot achieve your goals alone. It is imperative that you surround yourself with other players who possess the same goals and aspirations. Basketball is a team sport, the success of an individual player is dependent on the success of the team and its program. The Wisconsin Lakers IS a successful program comprised of successful teams and players.
- Help and Connections. In order to be recruited, college coaches will need to know of you. It’s imperative that you have someone who knows the NCAA recruiting rules, and has sound relationships with college coaches. Basically, you need someone credible in your corner to advocate on your behalf. The Wisconsin Lakers does that. Between our coaches and directors, we have sound relationships with countless college programs. This is evident by the fact that we have had or currently have graduated Laker players in the following states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Utah, and Wisconsin. The most exciting fact is that we are adding more each year! We are a nationally recognized program, so what part of the country interests you?
- Succeed When You Get There. It’s not enough just to get a scholarship in our opinion. We focus on the success rate of out college players. It starts with the player/program cohesion. The school has to fit for the player and their family.
Our coaches and directors will work to find the BEST offer for your player. Not only, that, we will help them after they have signed. Our training continues, so long as the player is willing to work hard. Additionally, we follow our player’s college careers, and support them in any way they need us too.
