2024 Coach for College Participants Announced

The Princeton Varsity Club is excited to announce the Princeton student-athletes who will participate in this year’s Coach for College program, a global initiative aimed at promoting higher education through sports. As part of the Coach for College experience, these student-athletes will travel to rural Vietnam for three weeks, where they will learn how to live and work alongside Vietnamese instructors to teach academics and athletics to middle school Vietnamese students.

The 2024 camps will be the twelfth year that the PVC has sponsored Tiger student-athletes to participate in Coach for College. More than 70 Princeton student-athletes have now completed the program, with the following individuals set to participate this summer.
