REATA sat down with Charlie Kadupski of The Sport Source to learn about programs available for student athletes throughout the country.
My name is Kadupski. I am the CEO and founder of the Sport Source, which is an educational publishing company. Our niche in the market is assisting student athletes in making a college decision and their future decisions.
What we do is have e-learning labs that assist the kids. From 8:30-5:30 Central Standard Time, you can get a live body. We work with youth organizations. We work with independent school districts to assist them in helping their kids transition from high school sports to college sports.
We have another unique product that is a college profile, which helps the general student combine their academics with a program. Say they want to study French or they want a second language that combines their skillset. We find the right college for them. They actually do the work. It’s a self-directed approach.
We were at one location for 15 years, and we wanted to move to upgrade our images. As we transitioned from a print medium to an online platform, we didn’t need warehouse space. So we contacted Bob Gibbons and I enlisted his services to go out and take a look at space.
Quickly what we realized was Bob Gibbons did his due diligence to understand our needs so that we can find the right fit for Sport Source and what we were looking for.
We targeted an area. Bob lined up appointment times that fit our work schedule. He would do anything to maximize our time and effort to find the right space. We’re fortunate that we met him, first and foremost. But the second part to it is that we love our office. The negotiations were seamless between Bob and our current landlord to allow us to maximize our space and get a quality space.
I’m here to tell you I’m extremely excited about our space because it’s really nice. Anytime you have a pool table in your space, you’ve got to love that!
