Are you a talented athlete? Would you like to be recruited by a top American college or university, possibly with a partial or full scholarship? Or perhaps you enjoy playing sport at an above average level but would love the opportunity to combine your sport with a study experience in the US?
UStudy Sports has recently merged with Go USA Talent in Sports (GUTS) to offer a unique academic-athletics cooperation that specializes in providing quality, personalized support and guidance for placing student-athletes from the Netherlands and other Western European countries, into a varsity team in the US that is the best match for their skill level, and their future athletic and academic goals.
For student-athletes who want to head to the US, there are many things to consider. What is the best school for my sport and my study goals? How do I apply and what is involved in the application process? Are there scholarships available in my sport, and if so how do I find them? How good do I have to be, and what grades do I need? These are just a few questions to have answered in a process that can be very complex. Going through this process alone can be a daunting task, especially when you are already busy and are not familiar with the US education system, the application process, or the very strict athletic recruiting rules.
This is where GUTS and UStudy can help you.
UStudy has years of experience in placing talented student-athletes in the US. We enjoy an excellent reputation among coaches in the US. We have an extensive network of college varsity coaches in all sports at all levels in all 50 states. We place our clients exclusively in teams at accredited schools that are members of the NCAA (Division I, II and III), NAIA and NJCAA or other minor sports.

“I hired UStudy to assist our daughter to find a college in the USA with a suitable study combined with college tennis at a high level. With the help of UStudy our daughter found a full scolarship and the perfect match. I am impressed with the knowledge, diligence, and punctuality that the UStudy staff have in their work. They are really a joy to work with and I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to go to college (eventually combined with sports) in the USA.”
