DELIVERING RESULTS AND CHANGING LIVES
Testimonial

If you're serious about running track or cross country in college, Coach Wood is perhaps the best person you can have on your team. As a parent, you want to maximize the opportunities for your child and help them obtain the college of their choice. Coach Wood helped our daughter and us as parents - navigate the complex world of college track recruiting where hundredths of a second in the 100 meters can make all the difference. Coach Wood thoroughly understands the college recruiting process in both track and cross country and has an incredible network of former and active college coaches he can directly pick up the phone and call. Coach Wood was always available to us. My wife and I found him to be a thoughtful, experienced mentor who brought clarity, guidance and support throughout the entire recruiting process, one which ultimately led to daughter joining the track team at Dartmouth College.

WHAT COACHES ARE SAYING

“Coach Wood, I am thrilled to be working with you since you are familiar with the type of kids we look for (and eventually lose to the Harvard’s and the Yale’s of the world.) We will reach out to anyone you send our way. I fully trust your judgement… you obviously knew what you were doing at Columbia University.” NCAA Coach
