We love what we do, and we love who we work with – but many do ask, why should we choose Study and Play USA?Read on to find out why US college coaches and families across the globe recommend us to look after your US experience.

  1. Family orientated

We describe our work team as a family, and that’s how we treat everyone – simple as that. We are one family and we stick together through thick and thin. This experience changes athletes’ worlds upside down (for the better) and we use our experience to help personally support all our athletes through any challenge.

We pride ourselves on being a close-knit family and encourage all future athletes to understand that.

  1. We stay together for the whole journey

As opposed to other similar businesses, we supportour athletes throughout their entire journey. Our job is to facilitatethe pathway to help student-athletes maximise their whole experience right throughout the entire journey to graduation.

We all want the experience to be fulfilling and exciting, and we love being part of it from day one.

  1. Personal experience

We are backed by years of experience.  Most of our staff have been through, or been heavily involved in, the American college system so we know what to expect. From flights, dorms, winning, losing, Twinkies and red cups – we’ve been there and done that!

Our experience is what drives us, we have all been thankful to have so many wonderful adventures that have helped us become the people we are, and we would love to share this with others.

  1. No hassle – We make it simple

You may hear from several people that the American college system can be a minefield wrapped up in a spider’s web, and that is for good reason. You must navigate processes and policies, forms, coach interviews, college visits, transport, logistics to name a few, and understanding where to even begin can be chaotic.

The joy of our work is that we take all this hassle away from you, and guide you step by step through the maze. We work with you to make the experience not only easy, but actually enjoyable. Our longevity in the industry mean we know where the pitfalls and traps are, and our in-depth knowledge helps athletes get to their goal sooner.

  1. Our huge network

We have worked with hundreds of coaches and dozens of colleges – we know who to talk to and when! Coaches trust us and our work and are always open to discussing athletes with Study and Play USA as we have a strong reputation and have proved our success in the US system.

An athlete who has our backing is already five steps ahead of any other!
