Womens Soccer Scholarships USA

Well it has been a fantastic start for our girls who have gone over to America and Canada. It is very early days but to know all the girls are having a fantastic time and also contributing to the teams they are playing for is great to hear.

With Soccer Smart taking time to really get to know the standard of football and the level of player required at the universities in America and Canada this has really helped us be successful in placing the right players with the right teams.

I want to take this time for you to think about what a Scholarship in America or Canada or even a placement in Australia for a year can do for your futures and careers. Having had the chance to play and live in another country for a period of four and half years, I have found that this has been fantastic in my individual development and given me the springboard I needed to be where I am now.  All that a student athlete or semi professional player will experience in the countries that we offer are invaluable. They will learn how to deal with good, bad and indifferent situations, they will gain confidence in themselves whether that be academically, on and off the football pitch (soccer pitch).

Having spent that time over there I know it was the best years of my life up to date. I lived with other student athletes that were from all over the world, and it gave me a chance to learn about different cultures, I made friends with people from different countries and for which I am entirely grateful.  I have been in contact with all the players that Soccer Smart sent out and the coaches have been really happy with them and also all the players are loving it.

 If you are reading this and thought ‘I would love to do that’ or ‘I wish I did that’ it isn’t too late, the opportunities to play abroad are for many different people and ages and this is something that Soccer Smart caters for. Soccer Smart demonstrates honesty, hard work, time, care, support and guidance to all our players. Each player is different that come through the doors of our office and we want to make sure that we provide the players/parents the relevant information and provide them with knowledge so that the players can make the right decision for them. We believe that anyone can achieve what they want to achieve given the right opportunity and experience, we are giving you exactly that.

The game for women’s soccer is getting bigger and bigger by the year and it is fantastic to see. One of our consultants Nicole Johnston spent several years at Everton Ladies FC before heading out to America for her Soccer Scholarship where she spent majority of her four years at a University in Alabama.  Since graduating in May 2015 Nicole came home and started with Soccer Smart straight away. It is fantastic for our company to have an ex female student athlete, who can help guide and support the female players we have on our programme. We want to progress our Women’s side as we believe that there are plenty of Women soccer players who have the ability to play out in America and Australia.

New Accreditation from the Athletic Scholarship Association

We are proud to announce that we are the first company to be accredited in the UK by the Athletic Scholarship Association.

The association is the first of its kind to accredit the well being of players that go through scholarship consultancies in the UK and worldwide.

Many of you reading this may be thinking of the opportunity to get a soccer scholarship in the USA or even play anywhere else in the world. With many companies offering this service you want to know that the company you use is accredited and your investment in your future is protected.

Many consultancies within the industry charge between £1000-£2500, this for most is a lot of money and for you as a player or parent you need to know that your money is safe and will be used appropriately for a service that you deserve.

Now that Soccer Smart is accredited by the Athletic Scholarship Association, it means that we have to offer a minimum service level to each one of our players and abide by the industry standards set by the association. 


What Soccer Smart has to say:

We are very happy to have passed the industry standards, we had to submit all our agreements and terms and conditions so that we were worthy for accreditation. We have always known that we offer one of the best services in the industry and this now confirms that. There are many companies just like Soccer Smart out there, each one will tell you how different they are. The truth is we all offer the same opportunity, the only real difference is the level of service that you get for you money. We hope that parents and players wanting a trustworthy and honest company will do their due diligence and use a company accredited by the association, this is not only good for Soccer Smart but also good for the industry as a whole
