CHASE THAT PRO DREAM|| BUT CATCH AN EDUCATION||

CATCH EDUCATION IS BRIDGING ATHLETES TO A BETTER FUTURE.
Perhaps nowhere in higher education is the disenfranchisement of Black male students more insidious than in college athletics.

WILL YOU GO PRO?

52% OF FOOTBALL PLAYERS AND 76% OF BASKETBALL PLAYERS BELIEVE THEY WILL GO PRO.


COLLEGE FOOTBALL AND BASKETBALL PROGRAMS OFTEN RECRUIT FROM THE SAME DEMOGRAPHIC: The Black male who is athletically gifted yet unprepared academically and lacks career ambitions beyond pro sports .

ATHLETICALLY GIFTED
STRUGGLE ACADEMICALLY
FINANCIALLY UNDER-RESOURCED
COLLEGIATELY OVERMATCHED
LIMITED CAREER MINDSET

WHAT WE DO | RAISING THE BAR

Catch Education changes the game for Black male scholarship athletes by ensuring they graduate high school – college, career and life-ready.


  • REINVENTING READINESS

    Catch Education reinvents the transition from high school to college by engaging the entire family to ensure high potential, low opportunity Black males have the preparation and tools they need to develop high performance habits.

  • QUALITY PROGRAMS

    Providing high-quality parent and player specific programming, both generations are educated equally and intentionally in developing best practices for student success.

  • FAMILY ENGAGEMENT

    Families receive a suite of wraparound services via home visits, school visits, classes, coaching and mentoring.

PLAYER FOCUSED > TWO-GENERATION FOCUSED

Most programs are player-focused, often leaving the parents out, despite family being a key contributor in the transition process from high school to college for students.

CATCH EDUCATION | A TWO-GENERATION APPROACH

Catch Education is a dual parent and player engagement program for Black male student-athletes and their families that begins in high school and continues through the first- year college experience. With a two-generation approach, Catch Education links early player success to early parent engagement that exposes and equips the entire family with knowledge about college and career preparation.

HOW IT WORKS

We focus on developing the “Catch Core” that consists of:
Readiness. Achievement. Opportunity.

WHERE WE WORK

Catch Education is based in Texas and serves football families throughout Dallas-Fort Worth. Our expansion will include serving football families in Houston, Texas. Our basketball division will operate in the Maryland region.


“In the next twenty years, 100% of the Black males we serve who receive an athletic scholarship to play Division I football or basketball will graduate from high school college-ready and equipped with a post-college career plan beyond playing professional sports.”

– DR. NITA EVANS, FOUNDER
