US Athletic Recruitment Support

Have you got what it takes to get recruited to study and play college sports in the United States?

Your sport can boost your chances of admission to your dream US university!

If you play your sport at a national level you can use it to help you gain acceptance to a top US university.

If a university coach wants you for their team, it will dramatically improve your chances of acceptance.

But the journey is not easy. There may be 4 or 5 spots available at each university every year and coaches are fielding anything between 200-500 applications. There is also a lot to prepare, you need to produce a recruitment video showcasing your talent, prepare persuasive appeals to coaches and negotiate and navigate the scholarship system.

Even after all of that, if you are successful, you still have to hit the university's academic requirements to cement your place.


National Collegiate Athletic Association

Within the NCAA, there are 1200 member schools and 23 sanctioned sports. It's made up of three divisions as detailed below. Ivy League universities are in the NCAA Division I although they cannot give out athletic scholarships.

Crimson is here to help!

Applying to the US as a student-athlete is a difficult task which is why so many students seek external support.

Each of our programmes are tailored to the student and are delivered by a carefully selected team of mentors who provide focused support with each and every aspect of the process.

We are proud to say that students who work with us are four times as likely to get into their dream university than those who apply alone.
