KCD Athletics introduces NEXT program at college sports symposium

On January 13, the KCD Athletic Booster Club sponsored a college sports symposium for student-athletes and their parents. This event featured KCD coaches, athletes, and parents, as well as former KCD lacrosse and football coach and current Georgetown College women’s lacrosse coach Brandon Davis. Over 80 athletes and parents attended this event, which covered a wide range of topics such as what it means to be a recruit, how to market yourself as an athlete, and questions to ask on a college visit. Check out a slideshow presentation of the symposium here.
During the event, KCD Athletics 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.

A page dedicated to the NEXT program will be available on our website soon. If you have questions or would like to set up a meeting with Coach Jones in regards to the next program, contact him at
