What we do

Everyone who works for our company is a former college coach or athlete. We work to bring college recruits and their families the advice and resources they need to get recruited and find athletic scholarships. We are able to keep our website, database and online profiles free with the help of our fantastic partnerships.

College Recruiting & Athletic Scholarships Advice

The recruiting process is poorly understood and it is difficult to find unbiased advice. That leaves many families frustrated and not knowing who to believe. Because we make our resources free to you, we always try to present the different options available to you on how to accomplish the necessary tasks in your search for a scholarship.

Staying Up-to-date on Changes in Recruiting and Eligibility

The NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA rules are always changing and it would be nearly impossible to keep up on all of the changes by yourself. We make sure to know when rules change and do our best to explain how those rule changes are going to impact you. Staying up to date with our blog or having an online profile will ensure you get the updated news.

Free Online Recruiting Profile

90% of college coaches say the recruiting process begins online. They use the internet to search for athletes and do their initial evaluations by the videos posted online. With the help of our partners, you can create a free profile on the #1 recruiting network. Our network boasts more than 42,000 college coaches viewing the profiles of over 500,000 athletes.

You Can Just Ask

We do our best to provide answers to all of the major recruiting questions but if you can’t find what you are looking for, you can always ask us directly. We are available by email, phone or on social media with our Facebook, Twitter and Google+ accounts. Good luck and we hope you find our website helpful.

I am originally from Melbourne, AUS and came to the U.S. on a DI Track scholarship to High Point University. After a transfer to Nicholls State University, and then to CSU Monterey Bay, I graduated and became the assistant coach for two seasons. I am fan of the 49ers, Warriors, and Vancouver Canucks.

I have spent over a decade in the college recruiting business as a prospective athlete, collegiate athlete, college coach, and President and Founder of a sports recruiting service. This is my dream career path and I am dedicated to providing a fantastic recruiting resource to student-athletes and their families.

My Recruiting tip: “When you are emailing coaches, do not email them like it is a text message. 2-3 sentence emails do not get a response!”

NCAA Expert

I’ve been all about the rules in sports since I started officiating soccer games at the age of 12. In addition to soccer, I also officiated basketball, flag football, and softball. After completing undergrad and law school at Indiana University, I moved to Los Angeles to work in compliance at Loyola Marymount before a move to Fort Collins, CO to work at Colorado State. I joined the Athnet team to help prospective athletes navigate the many NCAA rules that apply to recruits and student-athletes. I’m a huge fan of the US men’s soccer team, the LA Galaxy, and Arsenal.

My recruiting tip: Get started early with your eligibility to save yourself time and hassle later in the game.

Mark Finnegan

Hometown: Kildare, Ireland
School: University of Memphis (former player, now assistant coach)
Graduating Class: 2004
Sport: Tennis

I would highly recommend any level of tennis player to use Athletic Scholarships if they want to give themselves the best recruiting advantage possible. Within one week of contacting Athletic Scholarships, I had multiple offers from very highly competitive programs.

Out of all my choices, I decided on the University of Memphis. Currently, I am the assistant coach for the team. If it were not for Athletic Scholarships I would never have had time to find myself the best university to suit my needs. Since I am now a coach, I have become the recruiter, and I can see the difference between athletes who use a recruiting service like Athletic Scholarships versus athletes who do not.

As a coach and former college player, I can tell you that Athletic Scholarships is the best investment you will ever make in your life!

I just wanted to thank you for all your help with Amanda’s resume. I’ll just give you a snapshot of how things went.

I was extremely pleased with your service. I was originally overwhelmed with the recruiting process and I am very glad that I hired you to help me. I received interest from over 100 schools and was offered great scholarships. I am a Cross Country and Track & Field athlete and didn’t realize how many opportunities were out there for me before you marketed me to college coaches. After much interest from coaches I decided that the University of Portland was the best fit for me. Without your help I would not have been offered these scholarships and thank you for making my dreams come true.

Hometown: Baton Rouge, LA
School: Southern University
Sport: Tennis

I found out about athleticscholarships.net and the wonderful college recruiting service they provide from the mother of a friend of mine. She showed me the website and I emailed Athletic Scholarships Sports Recruiting at college sports recruiting services straight away. I was the top tennis player at my school and was hoping to get a tennis scholarship but had no help and was so lucky to find Athletic Scholarships Sports Recruiting. They took me step by step through the whole recruiting process and I was amazed at the response I had from coaches. We communicated daily for around 7 weeks and I was impressed with how quickly they responded to me and how much they helped me. They take pride in their work and in their athletes and I have recommended their service to many other athletes. I love playing tennis at the intercollegiate level at Southern University and without their help I don’t know where I would be playing tennis today.

Graduating Class: 2005
Sport: Soccer

Since I was a little boy, I have dreamed of going overseas to further my education and play soccer. I was an average soccer player, but with a lot of potential. I looked all over the internet for someone to make that dream come true, but no one could help me until I found Athletic Scholarships. They worked hard for me and after a few weeks more than 30 universities approached me about playing soccer for their college. It was incredible – my e-mail was full of letters from universities and I received more than 10 phone calls. I got a great scholarship and studied at High Point University.

Chad Portwood

School: Western State College of Colorado
Sport: Cross Country and Track

I found Athletic Scholarships Sports Recruiting service on the Internet and emailed them to learn more about it. We talked for about a week and I decided to give it a try and it has helped me out a lot. I gave them some information about myself, and my track and cross country PRs and they developed my resume and sent it across the country to 100′s of college coaches. In the first week I received about 100 replies and was well on my way to learning about colleges I had never heard about before. A few weeks later I had had talks with about 20 different colleges on the phone and received a huge stack of information. I received 4 full scholarship offers for track and cross country and decided to attend Western State College of Colorado. I would recommend their college recruiting service for any athlete looking to get recruited.
