Most athletes have dreams of being a professional athlete. The reality is less than 2% of all college athletes make it to the pros, with the exception of baseball (~ 12%) according to the NCAA. These numbers are staggering when you think about the requirements that a young person has to fulfill to acquire and maintain an athletic scholarship from an educational institution and the amount of money that is paid to universities ($2B) for sports participation.
Whether our iDareU participants make it to the majors or not, iDareU will still prepare them for the future; therefore, we will continue to monitor and support our young adults through training and mentoring.
We will incorporate additional services such as media training, internships and interviewing, through partnerships, for a smooth transition from college into their professional careers.
