This week, we are excited to announce our partnership with Appalachian State University Athletics. App State has continuously made the comprehensive development of their student-athletes a priority. This new partnership provides Mountaineer student-athletes with the resources necessary for success in the classroom, on the field, and upon graduation.
Working with Appalachian State’s leadership, academics, life skills and career development programs, Game Plan will give student-athletes access to unique job and internship opportunities–as well as an advanced platform for their personal and professional development.
“The success and development of our student-athletes on and off the playing field is very important to us,” explains Brittney Whiteside, Senior Associate Athletics Director. “By partnering with Game Plan, we will provide our athletes with the necessary tools to be successful during their time at Appalachian, and help prepare them for life after athletics.”
App State student-athletes have already started taking Game Plan assessments and eLearning courses as a part of their comprehensive personal and professional development.
In order to help prepare student-athletes for life after sport, we are also excited to provide them with access to the Game Plan Career Marketplace. Our Career Marketplace is the first full-engagement recruiting platform designed to unify athletic departments, student-athletes, and employers. Employers can recruit proven talent, amplify their employer brand, and promote organizational culture and values all while accessing a cutting-edge career marketplace.
Welcome aboard, Mountaineers! We’re excited to work with you.
