The college athletic recruiting process can be overwhelming, confusing, frustrating, and at times even discouraging. If done right the experience can however be an extremely rewarding one.

Swimmers and parents might feel overwhelmed as they begin the recruiting process. They just don’t know how to get started and they may not have a game plan. While many undertake this journey on their own and successfully navigate the athletic scholarship process, many don’t. If unable to navigate the process successfully, swimmers may lose out on tens of thousands of dollars worth of scholarship money.

Imagine accepting a scholarship to attend college. Imagine the opportunity to build lifelong friendships. Imagine swimming for and graduating from a college you actually wanted to attend. Why wouldn’t you enlist the help of a company that has a proven track record of helping thousands of athletes from across the world secure scholarships?

Wow an amazing article! Insightful and crafted in a manner befitting a master guidance professional. WELL DONE!!!


I think something that would be very helpful for a lot of swimmers is an article fact checking what it means to go to top D1 program. I see so many people who only look at those and get blindsided when they make a choice for a team they couldn’t handle.

While waiting for an acceptance from the admissions office, the swimmer is left powerless – they cannot use their swim credentials to apply to any other school.
