National recruiting expert to speak at Lahainaluna

By Staff | Feb 18, 2010

LAHAINA — Jack Renkens will speak to parents and athletes of Lahainaluna High School in the school’s library on Thursday, Feb. 25, at 7 p.m.

According to Renkens, high school student-athletes serious about continuing to play sports in college can never start too early or get too much help.

However, most students don’t know the recruiting game, NCAA rules or how to get matched with the best college for them.

Renkens will clarify recruiting myths and provide tips to parents and students serious about taking their high school athletics to the next level.

His highly sought-after program has been featured at thousands of schools across the United States, on numerous television programs and at sports camps from coast to coast. In addition, he is a weekly contributor to several major newspapers and magazines.

His message about collegiate athletic recruiting is simple: “It’s a game… know the rules.”

Renkens founded Recruiting Realities, an organization dedicated to exploding the myths and presenting the realities of athletic recruiting to student-athletes, their families, coaches and school counselors.

For information, call Scott Soldwisch, LHS athletic director, at 662-3979, extension 324.
