My background

 Jim Conway was raised in Rockville, Maryland graduating in 1981 from Our Lady of Good Counsel High School in Wheaton, Maryland. After playing on the freshman, junior varsity and varsity teams, Jim earned a Division I Basketball Athletic Scholarship to St. Francis College. Jim experienced the coaching expertise and leadership from two distinguished alumni: Coach Dave Magarity, currently Head Women’s Basketball Coach at The United States Military Academy, also known as West Point and Kevin Porter. Kevin played in the Washington D.C. area professionally with the Baltimore Bullets and Washington Bullets for several seasons respectively. After graduation, Jim embarked on a business career that spanned 30 years in the transportation and legal industries in the Washington, D.C. marketplace. Looking back on his high school experiences, Jim realized he was fortunate to land a Division I Basketball Athletic Scholarship.  He attributes this to hard work and dedication to both the game and academics, along with Coach Bernie McGregor, who gave him the opportunity to display his talents as a basketball player. His relationships with the coaching staff allowed Jim to excel on the court; his coaches also successfully guided Jim and his parents through the complexities of college recruiting. St. Francis College, now St. Francis University, became the perfect fit for Jim on many fronts. Not only did his college basketball career allow him to pursue his dream of obtaining a college degree while playing basketball, he also formed many lifelong friendships. Jim’s vision for Collegiate Profiles is to help high school students achieve their dreams of playing their sport of choice, in a college environment that provides the best opportunity for a successful college career. Through the best practices of creating exposure of our local student-athletes in the Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. metropolitan area we have a terrific program to help families secure an athletic scholarship and or college funding from colleges and universities from coast to coast. This is our passion - it's what we do every day!

Athletes

 Participation in youth sports can yield many benefits. Some of them are physical, such as acquiring sport skills and increasing health and fitness. Others are psychological, such as developing leadership skills, self-discipline, respect for authority, competitiveness, cooperativeness, sportsmanship, self-confidence and teamwork. Youth sports are also an important social activity in which children can make new friends and acquaintances and become part of an ever-expanding social network. Furthermore, the involvement of parents in the athletic enterprise can serve to bring families closer together and strengthen family unity. Finally, of course, youth sports are simply – just plain fun! The basic right of the young athlete to have fun participating should not be neglected. One of the quickest ways to reduce fun is for adults to begin treating children as if they were professional athletes. Coaches and parents alike need to keep in mind that young athletes are not adults. They are children, and they have the right to play and conduct themselves as children. Youth sports are first and foremost an extracurricular activity, and kids deserve to enjoy sports in their own way. In essence, it is important that programs remain child centered and do not become adult dominated. The following are some great tips on ensuring your child’s overall athletic experience and enhancing the overall atmosphere on the playing field.
