Opportunities Through Athletics, inc. (Oi) provides student-athletes with information, education, exposure, and guidance during the college recruiting process. Lack of exposure is one of the main reasons a student-athlete is overlooked by recruiters.
There are millions of student-athletes competing at high schools across the United States, and thousands more competing internationally. A single coaching staff cannot possibly evaluate all of them. Oi can help them pick deserving candidates out of this huge crowd of possible recruits.
There are hundreds of colleges and universities in the United States. A student-athlete cannot possibly evaluate all of them. Oi can help student-athletes and their families identify the ones that potentially offer the best 'fit', academically, athletically, socially, and financially.
College recruiting is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the student-athlete. It is not an event. It is a process. Oi understands this process. We can help student-athletes and their families through the maze of questionnaires, forms, phone calls 'official' and 'unofficial' campus visits, and other, often bewildering, aspects of the recruiting cycle.
While Oi is not a scholarship search firm, we do understand the variety of financial aid tools available to college coaches. We also know that the person in the best position to maximize opportunities for financial aid is the student-athlete. Consistent achievement in the classroom and on college admission tests broadens the range of financial aid available. That's why we counsel high school student-athletes to pursue classroom success with all the dedication and drive they devote to success in sports.
Oi offers education, exposure, and guidance about the college recruiting process to student-athletes and their families. We provide information about how the recruiting process unfolds at every step along the way. Our goal is to provide student-athletes the widest possible range of options for achieving their college goals and their lifelong dreams.
