Dear Valley Christian Athlete/Parents,

My name is Mr. Erik Ellefsen, and I have begun my 18th year in education and athletics and my 2nd full year at VCHS. I have been a high school coach, teacher, and administrator in California, Chicago, and Boston the past 14 years, and before that I had the opportunity to work at two colleges as head recruiter for the baseball teams. Besides my main duties as an Academic and College Counselor, I will be working with the VCHS Athletic Department to support and encourage our athletes in their pursuit of playing collegiate athletics.

My role will be threefold:
  1. Ensure that students are tracking their high school progress through the NCAA and NAIA Eligibility Center websites.
  2. Provide support and advice to students, parents, and our coaches as they seek out collegiate opportunities.
  3. Create opportunities for students and parents to learn more about the recruitment process and when necessary help develop a strategic plan for recruitment.

It is our sincerest belief that there is an opportunity for all of VCHS student-athletes to play collegiate athletics; whether that be locally or nationally, DI or DIII, whether scholarship or walk-on. My goal is to get to know you, your goals, and how I might assist you and the VCHS Athletic Department in your journey.

My email is eellefsen@vcs.net and my office phone number is 408-513-2408 if you would like to contact me.

Sincerely,
Erik Ellefsen
