At United Sports USA, our mission is to help talented young athletes get athletic scholarships at colleges and universities in the United States. Whether you have long dreamed about playing sports in America or are just curious about your chances of getting a sports scholarship, you’ve come to the right place. Here you can find information about what athletic scholarships are and how we can help you.
Every year, thousands of talented young athletes are given scholarships to play sports at colleges and universities around the United States. These athletic scholarships can help students cover the costs of tuition, housing, food, medical expenses, books, and transportation costs.
As a student athlete in the United States, you will have the chance to compete with some of the world’s top amateur athletes while earning your degree.
When looking at your options for athletic scholarships, it is important to understand that there is a huge range of options. Over 2,000 colleges and universities offer athletic scholarships in the United States, and these scholarships can be at differing levels. Maybe you dream of playing at a top-ranking large university in front of cheering crowds. Or maybe you’d rather focus more on your studies but still want to play your chosen sport in a less-demanding environment. Whatever your needs, there is an athletic scholarship out there for you.
There are a lot of steps which go into getting an athletic scholarship from a college or university in America. At United Sports USA, we offer comprehensive scholarship services for the entire process, from getting the initial assessment to helping you with visas once we’ve negotiated the scholarship terms for you.
This is the first step in the scholarship recruiting process. During the assessment, we will look at your sporting abilities as well as your grades, CV, and maturity. Based on this information, we will decide whether you are a good candidate for a sports scholarship and determine whether to work with you or not. If we decide to work together, then we will start the next steps in the scholarship recruitment process. You can learn more about athletic assessments here.
Don’t expect coaches to come looking for you! You have to be proactive about getting your name out to coaches. United Sports USA helps you do this in a professional, effective manner. We create online profiles for our clients which are viewable by coaches.
We will film hi-res video footage of you and expertly edit it into a highlights reel which showcases your talents. We will then upload the video to your online profile and to YouTube.
We will create accounts with the NCAA and NAIA for you, which you must activate. These are important because coaches will often ask for your eligibility number before making you an offer.
Taking the SAT test is mandatory for acceptance into most US colleges and universities. We will sign you up with the College Board (which administers the SAT exam) and schedule your first test.
There are over 2,000 colleges and universities in the United States which offer athletic scholarships. Do you know which one is right for you? We assess your grades and athletic abilities, as well as what your personal needs are, and help you narrow down your options
Our experts have strong ties with coaches around the United States and know exactly what they are looking for in players. We take a proactive approach to getting you an athletic scholarship by contacting coaches directly and sending out promotional material to them.
Once you have a scholarship offer, we will go over all the fine print and help you negotiate the terms of the scholarship. This way, you get the best scholarship deal possible.
We know how confusing this process can be, so we have done our best to make it as easy as possible for you. In the client’s area of our website, you will find a large amount of helpful resources. We are also available to help you personally with things like student visas, travel insurance, choosing a school, college applications, or anywhere that help is needed.
At United Sports USA, we have a strong reputation for helping our clients get athletic scholarships. Since we started in 2009, we’ve earned more than $16 million in scholarship money for our clients and placed them in colleges and universities in over 40 states in the USA.
It is important to note that our reputation with coaches is based on the success of our clients once they enter college. We only work with kids whom we think will be a good fit for the American collegiate system. It isn’t enough to be athletically gifted. You also must have good grades, a strong work ethic, and mature enough to handle living on your own in the USA.
