Tom Kovic Founder and President
Individual Attention and Results
Once you get to know us and our team, you will better understand our view our beliefs that drive our day to day operations. We cultivate personal relationships with each family we work with and strive to have out “finger on the pulse” of each project. Victory is simply "several excellent services in one."
We solve problems
As advisors we simply fix upon a vision, motivate our clients and develop a master roadmap to reach that end. From there we make ever effort to guide the family step by step to help deliver the goal. We care about your personal college quest and how we can help you improve your recruiting plan to make your search more successful. We take careful time to look at your sons or daughters current position from a fresh, inside perspective and then roll our sleeves up in an effort to help build traction in the college recruiting process as "the rubber meets the road."
We make it simple
We make it easy for you to communicate with us and we strongly encourage you to be an integral part of the team. When we engage in “tasks” for you – the steps are clear on what you will need to do in order to “hit the mark.” We believe in clearly defining the goals of the project, connecting regularly and embrace "simplicity as the ultimate sophistication."
We grow relationships
We are a small company...A "mom and pop service" and we like it that way. We enjoy connecting with families and all those who make their college search “go.” We strive to partner with you and other team members (club/high school coach, guidance counselor etc.) in a meaningful way, by getting to know you, your goals, passions and individual needs. We are college advisors for student-athletes and families, but we are also "life coaches." We are never afraid to navigate the grey areas and lend a helping hand, especially when times seem tough...We are resourceful.
We listen to you
We don’t use a one size fits all or cookie cutter approach. We take the time to listen to your needs and develop solutions unique to your challenges. In the final analysis, gaining individual awareness about the college search for athletes is a key component for success and we value an educated approach to arriving at an important "life choice."
Smart in how we approach your family. Strategic in how we plan the college search for athletes. We will work with you to help you reach a comfort level to effectively engage college coaches in a respectful, personal and productive manner in an effort to grow sincere personal relationships and find the right college match.
We are responsive
We live and breathe with our families. We walk with you as partners and are available to respond to your needs when they arise. We succeed when you succeed and creating seamless communication with our families is our every day obligation.
We are passionate about what we do
The strength of our team is our diversity of thought and a willingness to speak our minds frankly, but listen better to the thoughts of others. Our collective experience gives us a complete perspective and skill set when developing plans and timelines for each family we advise.
We help build life skills
As Victory advisors, we pride ourselves with a strong history of success in college placement of student-athletes. Equally important, we are privileged with the families we have worked and grown personal relationships with during the past 7 years. We certainly focus on tightening the “nuts and bolts” of college recruiting, but we are educators, moms and dads and in the final analysis, realize the long term importance of the college quest. The student-athletes we advise are moving toward new, exciting yet unknown experiences and we are with them every step of the way.
“Our family had the pleasure of meeting Tom Kovic in the fall of our son’s Junior year. From the time of the first meeting to the culmination of the verbal commitment (to a D-1 program) in July of the following year Tom has directed the recruiting process every step of the way. As avid sports fans and crazed parents pushing their kids dreams we were in no way prepared to navigate the recruiting process. Tom not only developed an efficient process for our son, he prepared our son with many life lessons. He taught him valuable planning lessons, how to be prepared to talk with coaches who only had a few minutes, and how to handle rejection and not get discouraged. The recruiting process is certainly not a sprint, and preparation is the key. There are so many quality athletes searching for spots. Hope is not a strategy if you desire one of those spots. Tom Kovic prepared our son and under his leadership our son is able to realize his dream of playing Division 1 lacrosse."

"Tom- I just wanted to thank you for all of your help with Sean. Two years ago, when we first started working with you and Sean for colleges, I thought you were just going to take care of finding Sean the right fit for him academically and athletically, but ,over the past year, you have become his life coach dealing with his injury, his mindset, and changing to a new school. Tom, you know, the most important thing in my life is my children and I am very careful, in this day and age, who I expose my children to. You have been one of the most positive, motivating forces in Sean's life. From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you.”
