About Study & Play USA

Since 2004, families have placed their trust in Study & Play USA to guide them through this rewarding pathway. Highly regarded by coaches right across the USA, our expert team consists of former student-athletes, educators, coaches and parents who understand the importance of finding the right fit for the student-athlete. The catalyst for the establishment of Study & Play USA was the life changing experience that founder Chris Bates enjoyed during his four year USA University journey.


The positive outcomes from his experience ignited a passion for educating others about their own unique opportunities in the hope that more student-athletes can set themselves up for their best lives.
