NEXT program guides student-athletes through recruiting process

Last spring, KCD officially introduced the NEXT program, which is being directed by Coach Matthew Jones. The NEXT program was created to help KCD student-athletes interested in pursuing college sports. The program will help guide these student-athletes through the recruiting process and provide a game plan to help them reach their goals. We’re proud of this unique KCD program, which offers a service that no other school in Kentucky currently provides. 
NEXT program director Matt Jones is pleased with the direction the program is headed. "In only it's first year, the NEXT program has already benefited many KCD athletes and will continue to improve and serve as an outlet to help our outstanding students.  The goal remains to be a tool as they work to reach their dream of playing at the next level in any sport that they are passionate about.
KCD Director of Athletics Dr. Tim Green commented on the importance of the NEXT program. “In today's recruiting landscape, athletes need to be proactive at a young age in the process. Our program helps families learn about the steps that should be followed and assists in helping them understand how important fit is in selecting a college in which to pursue one's athletic goals.”
