Build a Better Game Plan

Why an Athletics Assessment?

During an Athletics Assessment, we conduct a broad review of your Athletics Department’s current practices, policies, and operations.  We identify your school’s strengths and locate areas where it can improve—and then provide actionable recommendations and practical guidance from an experienced, certified expert.  Our in-depth review and analysis will keep your school playing at the top of its game.

Contact Carey Goodman to discuss an assesment for your school or read about our other Athletics Department services here.

Our Process

Your assessment begins with a comprehensive review of your school by Dr. Tim Green.  He studies department documentation; visits the school; and interviews the Athletic Director, Head of School, coaches, players, and parents.  Using this information, Dr. Green analyzes facilities, budgeting and capital needs, department policies and structures, and program necessities.  After delivering the results of our assessment, we follow up six months later to discuss your school’s progress.

Your Report

We will deliver the results of your Athletics Assessment in a written report, which offers an in-depth review of current department operations and recommendations on short- and long-term financial planning; personnel; facilities usage; and department policies and structure.  We also indicate where your school adheres to or diverges from current best practices, and provide benchmarks for comparison with data about other schools with similar profiles.

Tim Green

During his 32-year career in schools, Dr. Tim Green has served as a teacher, coach, P.E. Department Chair, and Director of Athletics.  His successful record of independent school athletic leadership includes oversight of teams and coaching staff, budget development, athletic facilities, mentoring programs, coaching evaluation, professional development, and athletic capital improvements.  He has served on numerous committees at the collegiate and independent school levels and is certified at the highest level (Certified Master Athletic Administrator) by the NIAAA. Tim will join our staff in July 2021.
