Our programming is design to help student-athletes advance towards GRAADuation and success both on and off the playing field. Founded upon five unique pillars, Beyond the Whistle strives to encourage productive citizenship and develops well rounded student athletes, by Growing Resources for Academic and Athletic Development.
Peer tutoring programming to give students the opportunity to earn community service hours by helping their teammates earn the grades to keep them eligible and college ready.
Preparing a student athlete to go onto the next level can be a daunting task for not only the student, but family and coaches as well. BTW provides aide in the process by providing workshops for parents and coaches as well as a fundamental and detailed checklists for students to utilize as they prepare for their next big challenge.
College Tours & Fairs
Routinely, BTW develops regional and state college fairs to help student athletes progress to the next level. Some form or college education is a general requirement for most opportunities outside or inside the lines. These events are designed to expose local youth to opportunities in athletics beyond their back yard. Additionally we will host an annual college tour around the United States.
BTW coordinates field trips and events for local student athletes to get a behind the scene look at Tampa Bay’s premier sport facilities and organizations.
BTW Speaker Series allows former student athletes that current working in sports, entertainment, media, operations, etc. to convey their wisdom and life lessons to children with sports aspirations. Each professional’s journey is unique, and it is important to share that there is no single path to greatness.
A large part of the Beyond the Whistle programming is Resources. It is important for our student athletes to become aware of the resources in their local community, and equally as important that these students learn to become a resource to their local community.
