College Links

Each year, we see more and more of our student-athletes seeking information on opportunities to participate in college-athletics.  We have dedicated this section to providing you resources that will allow you access to valuable information about the types of programs and the steps involved in seeking opportunities to play at the collegiate level. This page will continue to evolve and we hope to add sample resumes as well as alumni collegiate athletes’ comments on their college athletic experience.  As always, we encourage families to contact their Head Coach.  Working with the Prairie College Counseling Office  and our coaches, we will assist you in this process.  However, these opportunities cannot exist without the effort and energy of the family.
