Course Evaluation Comment for an Academy Student: I do not have anything to suggest to improve the course. This was the best class I ever had in my entire life. I have more than 150 University credits in total so you can be proud to have been the one giving me the best course in all that.

Philippe Babineau, Student

The mentorship was a great experience. I entered the requirement unsure of the anticipated outcome. The mentorship was the most practical and useful experience of the entire program thus far. It allowed me to apply many of the things learned during the program and allowed me to explore many topics that everyday commitments do not allow.


This mentorship has been a huge step in assisting me with my future plans and goals. I would not trade this experience for any other educational experience. The lessons and information that I have learned in addition to the certifications that I earned will be invaluable to me as I proceed in the future of sport management. I cannot wait to begin my next chapter in life and instarting a business as I now have tools in which I can make the process work to my benefit. I hope the mentorship program stays as part of the academic curriculum because I believe it to be a wonderful educational tool.

John Green

USSA was a perfect fit for me and my family. I wanted to take my career to another level and found it to be a rigorous, yet convenient, option. The online format, instructors, and depth of coursework really made my experience worthwhile. My experience with USSA has really helped me personally and professionally. I know there are many people who are in the same situation I found myself in as I started my coursework and I highly recommend them exploring opportunities at USSA.

John Welch, Alumnus

The mentorship helped me to learn the proper way to form meaningful connections, to manage personnel, plan a effective practice throughout the basketball season, how to handle recruits, produce different types of marketing tools and how to plan a full season schedule, including travel arrangements. All of these skills will help me in my career. The overall mentorship experience was a great experience. I’m very thankful that the USSA requires the mentorship as a graduation requirement. I feel very well prepared to tackle any job in my field of study.

William Harrison (BSS, 2015 Graduate)

I feel that participating in this mentorship allowed me a real-world opportunity to interact with interscholastic high school athletes to understand, from a coach's perspective, the best ways to develop their skills and abilities while also helping them to be successful students and people outside of sport.

BSS, 2016 Graduate
