Rush Pikes Peak Holds CAP Night
Rush Pikes Peak held the College Advisory Program (CAP) College Night Talk for high school-aged boys currently in the club in February.
Rush CAP Director and Metro State Men's Soccer goalkeeper coach, Mike Gabb, led the presentation and Scott Palguta, B17 Rush Pikes Peak coach and newly named head coach of Colorado College Men's Soccer, assisted him. The two speakers brought a wealth of college experience both as former NCAA Division I players and current college coaches in Colorado.
A large portion of the presentation focused on the college timeline, communication dos and don’ts, athletic scholarships, and creating a college list.
Following the Rush Pikes Peak event, Gabb stated, “Coming down to the Springs the last two years, once in the fall for high school girls and once in the spring for high school boys, has been very productive in getting the conversation going amongst club members and engaging them in the college search process. More and more each year the competition for prospective collegiate athletes increases and Rush understands we can provide further resources to help our members.”
