About Fresh Start Sport and Mentoring. 

Fresh Start Sport and Mentoring, Inc (FSSM) is a Chicago based company that was founded in 1995 by Kenneth Rogers. FSSM was originally designed to: (1) Assist athletes achieve their athletic and academic goals, (2) Assist athletes with second chances who are still eligible.  

 

It is our goal to not only help those who want to improve their level of play, but to also reach their highest potential. Each student athlete is analyzed based on their stage of development in their chosen sports as well as their academic performance. Once analyzed, FSSM ensures the proper collegiate placement. 

Currently, FSSM has placed well over 150 student athletes around the country.
