Or read on to learn more about athletic assessments.
An athletic assessment is a lot different than a trial. During a trial, you are aiming for a sport on a team or club. During an athletic assessment, you are having your abilities evaluated by an expert.
Athletic assessments are one of the most important parts of the scholarship recruiting process. This is because the assessment will give you clear, unbiased information about your chances of getting a scholarship. A good assessor won’t just look at your athletic abilities, but also looks at your academic records, behavior, and maturity.
Depending on your sport, you may have your assessment alone or on the field with other athletes. The assessor will watch you play and practice. Video footage may be filmed for later review. The assessor will also look over your CV and grades. All this information is important when deciding whether you are a good candidate for an athletic scholarship in the United States.
All of our athletic assessments are conducted by professionals who are experts in their sport. They not only understand the sport, but also the academic and other eligibility factors which determine whether you could get a sports scholarship.
After the assessment is over, we will tell you whether you are a good candidate for a sports scholarship and whether we would like to work with you. For golf, swimming, and track & field assessments, you will be told on the spot. For soccer assessments, we will notify you approximately 1 week after the assessment.
It is important to note that we only work with kids who we think will succeed in the US collegiate system. It isn’t enough to be a great athlete! Our reputation with coaches depends on us being able to recommend kids who can withstand the rigorous demands that come with being a student athlete, such as being able to handle coursework, athletics, and living away from home in a new country.
Even if we decide not to work with you in the scholarship process, we will still provide you with a complete assessment of your strengths and weaknesses. We recommend that all young athletes get an athletic assessment early on. This can give you time to improve on some of your weak areas so you have more scholarship opportunities.
Whether we decide to work with you on scholarship recruiting or not, having an athletic assessment performed can tell you a lot of valuable information.
