Providence Presents (9/26): Truths & misconceptions about competitive sports

September 6, 2017 by Elaine Rottman

Are competitive sports right for me? What does it take to play college sports? 

Providence Presents brings another informative event to the Santa Barbara community on Tuesday, September 26. “Truths and Misconceptions about the World of Competitive Sports” is a must for student athletes, coaches, and families of student athletes at any level:  elementary school, middle school, high school, and even college. 

A knowledgeable and experienced panel will share the “Truths and Misconceptions” surrounding: 

  • the rules associated with the various athletic levels
  • how to be noticed by coaches
  • how to choose the right school or college where one would be able to participate
  • how college athletic scholarships are awarded

An impressive panel with vast experience in athletics includes:

  • John Moore, Assistant Athletic Director and Men’s Basketball Coach, Westmont College
  • Ryan Moore, formerly of University of San Francisco and Occidental College
  • Faith Emerson ’12, member of CIF championship girls basketball team and starter for Whitworth College Pirates (grad ’16)
  • Kristin Stockfisch, Arizona State athlete, now overseeing Fellowship of Christian Athletes on local college campuses
  • Moderated by Steve Stokes, Providence athletic director and boys basketball coach

Please join us Tuesday, September 26, at Christ Presbyterian Church (Victoria and Anacapa) for an evening of information you can use. Doors open 6 pm and the program begins at 6:30 pm.
