THE BLACK ROCK RISING SCHOLARS PROGRAM

(BR RSP) seeks to identify motivated student-athletes from diverse backgrounds within our local community. At its core the program provides academic mentoring, lessons on diet and nutrition, and reinforces the importance of physical exercise through soccer. Coaches and players from Black Rock FC and volunteers from area college teams lead weekly sessions for student - athletes selected for this program.

OUR PARTNERSHIP

with Boys & Girls Club of Berkshire County provides us with a centrally located facility which allows us to serve families in Pittsfield and the surrounding area. BR RSP is an inclusive, merit-based program designed to identify the most deserving candidates irrespective of their financial backgrounds.

DURING THE IDENTIFICATION PROCESS

rising-Scholars' staff evaluate all student-athletes invited to participate in the BR RSP screening process on the following criteria: interviews, recommendations, and academic assessment. After several rounds of evaluations, finalists are selected and Black Rock Rising-Scholars are announced.

WE ARE COMMITTED

to providing Black Rock Rising-Scholars with two weekly sessions that will include academic tutoring, a light snack, and soccer practice.  Consistent participation is critical to the continued development of our Rising- Scholars so regular attendance is a required in order to remain in the program.  Additionally, commitment to academic achievement is central to the goals of this program so academic progress reports and report cards will be reviewed by our staff regularly.  

THE PROGRAM INCLUDES:

  • Academic tutoring for all academic subjects

  • Healthy snack options to fuel up before practice

  • Black Rock FC Coach led skills practices and games

  • Review of academic progress reports and report cards
