In the sixteen years of developing Booth Lacrosse from a start-up to a leading trainer of young athletes, Tim Booth, the founder and CEO of the company, had always felt a deep commitment to help his players forge a solid path in life. From his own experience, he knew lacrosse could be a powerful tool to teach discipline and the benefits of hard work. For those who had the talent and desire to take their game to the collegiate level, Coach Booth ensured his players got the right exposure to have the greatest opportunities possible. That commitment to his players took another step forward recently when Booth decided to partner with Athens Advisors in an effort to enhance those players' college options by ensuring that they were aware of the wide-variety of potential good-fit colleges and that they received the support to execute a comprehensive college application plan.

The definition of a “good” college depends on the person defining it. Many people look toward the brand name of the college which has been developed through athletic notoriety, seeming connection with the Ivy League, belief in the power of alumni connections and whether a friend or family member graduated from that institution.
