How it works
College sport in the USA is unlike any other amateur sporting environment. The collegiate system offers student-athletes facilities that most professional teams the world over could only dream about, full-time professional coaching and more than $3 billion in scholarship funding available each year. Securing recruitment to a college program, therefore, is extremely competitive and requires a lot of time, effort and ability.
The advantages of competing in college sports are both immediate and lifelong. Participating in college sports provides opportunities to learn, compete and succeed individually and as part of a team. Student-athletes receive academic support, medical care, regular access to full-time coaching and all their sporting equipment.
Our team is made up of former student-athletes who have competed in the USA, they have experienced what it is like to play, train and study in America. Our team will support student-athletes through the entire recruitment process and will often draw on their own individual experiences which is of extreme value to any prospective student-athlete.
HOW DO SCHOLARSHIPS WORK?
There are two types of athletic scholarship:
- Full scholarship
- Partial scholarship
A full scholarship means that the university or college takes care of everything. Paying for all tuition, accommodation, food, books and anything related to the relevant sport.
With partial scholarship, the university or college agrees to cover some of these expenses. The exact amount varies from student to student, but for instance, an athlete’s family may need to contribute $7,000 towards the $50,000 cost of the first year of a course.
In most cases, partial scholarships come with incentives.
Perform well on the field and in the classroom and the university or college can increase their contribution, even up to full scholarship levels.
Any additional financial assistance packages, such as academic scholarships, can be added to the athletic scholarship to further reduce the financial burden on a student-athlete and their family.
As a student-athlete you can have the opportunity to earn a world-class degree, enjoy an incredible life changing experience as well as play in the most competitive sporting environment in the world.
