[Event] How to Maximize Your Time in High School to Prepare for College Life


If you want to play college sports, you will want to catch this session!  

The transition from high school to college brings with it many challenges.  If you plan on playing college sports, the challenges become even greater.  

Find My Team welcomes Founder of Next Step With Passion and Purpose, Willette White, who has witnessed these transitions and has found a way to help high school student athletes prepare for college while they are still in high school.  

“My motivation came from witnessing first-hand the struggle that incoming freshmen have during their first year in college. There is such a need to have some sort of preparation before a student athlete steps on campus.  There is so much they don’t know and so many things they will face, and they have no idea what those things will be.  So, I developed a program around the most important topics that would help incoming student athletes.  It helps alleviate some of the surprises.”      —  Willette White

Willette is a former college athlete, Division II College All American and Hall of Fame inductee to both the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges’ and the University of Idaho Athletics Hall of Fame.  She is also a former college coach of 36 years with coaching positions at Utah, Oregon, Northeastern, UCLA and Washington. 

Willette graduated from Green River Community College, then went on to the University of Idaho. She earned her Master’s Degree from Ohio State University.  

Outside of the college coaching realm, Willette also spent time with USA Basketball. She served on the coaching staff for the 2001 U19 Junior World Championships. 

Her vast experience at the collegiate level, and having witnessed and mentored many student athletes as they encountered the freshman year struggle, will help equip and prepare you for your own transition into college.  

Learn how to prepare now so you’ll be ready when its your turn to take it to the next level – in college.
