The Crimson Difference

At Crimson Athletics, we devise a unique recruitment strategy for each athlete that aligns with their individual priorities.

Each athlete’s circumstance is different. As such, each athlete’s recruitment strategy should be unique.

At Crimson, we have the ability to combine our intensive, personalised athletic development and recruitment strategy with our elite college admissions consulting services to ensure that our athletes achieve their goals in the admissions process. From the very beginning, we work with athletes and their families to understand their athletic goals, academic ambitions, financial needs and any other priorities they have, and then we devise a strategy that intentionally addresses these priorities.

Our team includes former Ivy League coaches and mentors with backgrounds in various sports. We lean on deep recruitment expertise and Crimson admissions data to provide cutting-edge insight and optimise our students' admissions chances.
