"Producing Professionals On & Off the Field"
Sportz Farm is a NJ based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that seeks to bridge a disconnect that exists between local student athletes’ athletic prowess and their failure to shift that talent past the high school level.
Sportz Farm is a mentoring program developed to assist underprivileged, at-risk inner city youth, leverage their sports and academic capabilities to obtain scholarships to attend college.
Not only does Sportz Farm provide athletic, weight, speed & agility training but also instills social responsibility in the students via mandatory volunteer community work, character building & academic support via focused tutoring sessions for both school and ACT/SAT Prep. Student-athletes are required to volunteer their time to other local charities and good causes in efforts to help the kids build character and give back to their communities.
Sportz Farm fills a void in a community where youth are often not taught that academic achievement should come before sports. The Sportz Farm Foundation‘s mission is to “produce professionals on and off the field."
Sportz Farm gives student athletes in the 7th grade and up every advantage they need to be successful in taking their talents to the collegiate level. Not only are they provided with the athletic and nutritional based training but also the academic preparatory support, ACT/SAT prep, college application/essay & FAFSA assistance, college tours, college camps and more.

"I just wanted to thank Sportz Farm for everything they've done for me during my off season. Everything you did for me couldn't go unnoticed. You've helped me the whole way through and pushed me beyond the limit. I'm so thankful for it all because not only did it make me a better player but a better man as well."

There are over 9 million high school student-athletes in the United States. Less than 8% will participate in college sports and an even lower percentage of at-risk inner city youth. That leaves millions of athletes who are good college prospects but get left out of scholarship opportunities. Why? They & their parents don't understand how college recruiting works, so college coaches never learn about them and the value they could bring to their programs.
At Sportz Farm we help close that gap and educate both our student-athletes and parents on how recruiting works and provide the tools and services to get it done right.
Our student-athletes are provided with everything they need from online profile creation, personalized email solicitations to college coaches, highlight reel assistance, academic tutoring, FAFSA/Financial aid assistance, college application and essay writing guidance and much more.

One of the most important elements Sportz Farm provides is a strong academic component to the program. All athletes are required to submit transcripts and progress reports regularly. If the grades don’t indicate they are improving or showing effort, they are not allowed to participate in the athletic training or program. It’s often those non-academic activities that keep those kids engaged in the academic process and we leverage that completely.
Sportz Farm provides extensive academic preparatory support via intense tutoring sessions for both school and ACT/SAT prep. Both paid/volunteer tutors and SAT/ACT specialists attend and teach sessions in-person and remotely online.

Exposure is the name of the game when it comes to getting recruited to play football in college. At Sportz Farm we hand select the most impactful college camps, combines and invitational?s for our student-athlete?s to attend.
There are 1000?s of camps every year but only a handful are worth the time, money and effort in terms of REAL exposure.
Don?t get lost in the money pit by attending any camp or combine hoping for exposure. The Sportz Farm staff will hold your hand through the maze ensuring you get the biggest bang for the buck attending only those camps college coaches and recruiters attend. We also host our own invitational every May in Elizabeth, NJ which garners the attention of big DI & DII college coaches and recruiters. Watch the trailer and signup below.Get A Free Consultation!
Experience what college life is really like, visit a variety of campuses, meet coaches and identify what you really want in a college. Sportz Farm not only trains students for success but also helps them build character and experience college life by taking them on annual national and regional college tours.
There?s nothing like experiencing campus life in person to avoid making the mistake of selecting what you may THINK is a good fit.
We also use this opportunity to expose the athletes to football camps and connect them with athletic coaches when their grades meet the college?s academic standards.
