Don't Miss: B-BP NCAA Recruiting Presentation Tonight

Workshop features national expert on financial opportunities for the student-athlete.

The Bayport-Blue Point School District is hosting a special seminar on NCAA recruiting and financial opportunities on Monday, October 22 that parents and student-athletes are encouraged to attend.

National renowned recruiting expert Jack Renken will deliver a one-hour presentation on the realities of college recruiting. Renken has been providing such insight for 16 years of such seminars and a preview can be seen here.

The seminar event, which will be at 7 p.m. at the district auditorium, is not costing the district any money, said Tim Mullins, director of Physical Education, Health and Interscholastic Sports.

“I'm confident you will find Jack's presentation educational, informative and entertaining. It will be a great one-hour investment of time for you and your student-athlete. Parents all over the country are raving about the importance and impact of this,” states Mullins in an email sent out last week to parents.

Interesting. An earlier announcement about this, which is now no where to be found, made mention about presentation being offered at "considerable expense" or words to that effect, now it states this presentation "is not costing the district any money,". Interesting.

Hey Vito.. the wording of the press release on it mentioned something like this is an investment by the district or something and I checked on that and it's not costing the district anything so to avoid potential misconception I clarified the wording. That's all :) And you can always email or call me on anything as sometimes I don't catch all comments so in case if you don't hear back in comments just reach out.

Thanks Judy. I didn't comment on the initial press release, but it was oddly stated and left me with the suggestion it was something that was costing a good amount. I am happy to know that is not the case. I understand and appreciate the role athletics plays in the lives of our young people, but have concerns that it sometimes takes precedence over education.

Just to add, I didn't think you had altered anything Judy, I assumed that someone may have taken the district to task on the initial report of what seemed like a report this was a costly event and that had prompted the revised release.

Nope, it was just a statement that wasn't clear. The investment was organizing the event I believe.. the logistics.. not district funds. And thanks for being such a dedicated Patch reader :)
