In a year that has done more taking than giving, founding a company for dreamers and future shapers has been no easy feat. As life has become more challenging for athletes on and off the field, our Founder gathered every single tool, resource and experience she had as the parent of a Division I athlete and poured them into The Future of D1 - a brand, sports content company and personal declaration fueling, igniting and inspiring amateur athletes and the people who support them in their pursuit of Division I scholarship opportunities.
The disruption of sports as we know it caused by the global pandemic has likely shifted the landscape of college recruiting forevermore. And with college admissions scandals being played out in court, we believe it is imperative we alleviate the desperation caused by the lack of public-facing information on college recruiting. The Future of D1 works to solve this problem by providing parents and their athletes with resources to improve their chances of playing college sports.
Parents, believe it or not, the Division I recruiting process starts with you. If your child's best path to college is through sports, and you're looking for insights, messaging and content to help you improve their chances of playing at the highest level of intercollegiate athletics (Division 1), we're here for you.
This video answers the 5Ws on The Future of D1 including our outlook on the future of college sports and why you should start preparing the recruiting process as early as possible.
We invite you join us everywhere we are. Our 2020 launches include the following:
