Coastal Elites provides opportunity to motivated student athletes across the nation. As a requirement, each athlete must demonstrate his or her passion about being a student athlete. It is our mission to provide opportunities for this talented human capital, a group of individuals that personifies discipline, hard work, and excellence.
After joining our organization, each student athlete will have access to education services, personalized fitness programs, mentoring, exclusive networking, and financial literacy. Coastal Elites will help members become mentally and physically strong people prepared for the challenges of the sports and professional worlds, while aiming to achieve greatness.
Coastal Elites was founded in 2019 by Kendric Harrison, a finance data engineer, who wants to help change the culture of athletes entering and exiting college without professional skills. He has worked for Fortune 500 companies and managed business development for Boston-based professional athletes. He considered the lack of accessible information and marginalized equity in education very alarming, since both are required to excel after the game. As a result, he decided to create an organization that would further the professional development of diverse athletes.
Coastal Elites aims to begin supporting students early in their athletic careers. At Coastal Elites, we believe in supporting and developing students long before they apply to college.
