I am a German native currently based in the USA. As a former youth Bundesliga academy player in Germany and NCAA student-athlete at Hofstra University in New York and CSU in Los Angeles, I have experienced both the pros and cons of both cultures. Soccer/football has changed my life in many positive ways, and I am dedicated to sharing my experiences with the next generation of players.

I am happy to help you get started! – Herbert

Athletic as well as academic scholarships are much more common in the U.S. than in most other countries. Athletic scholarships are awarded to athletes of outstanding performance in order to enable them to finance their studies in the US. The athlete participates fully in practice sessions with the college team and represents the university in various tournaments and competitions. The coaches’ job is to professionally manage the teams; in this sense, they have a similar position to that of a professor and are also paid accordingly.

For what reasons are scholarships awarded?

For generations, American universities have had college teams in all kinds of sports. These teams are professionally managed by specially employed coaches and serve as an advertisement for the respective university in numerous competitions. If a team has regional or even nationwide success, the media will cover its development. That is why college teams are a means to market the university in order to recruit new students. For this reason, the universities provide the coaches with a budget to recruit talented athletes from around the world and help them finance their studies or even their entire stay abroad.

Why an athletic scholarship to America?

The American college system produces some of the best sporting talents in the world. The facilities, coaching, and support networks, including sports science, nutrition, physiotherapy, and fitness training, are all world-class. Universities travel the length and breadth of the United States to play each other; it is big business involving massive corporate sponsorship, fanatical crowds, rich history, and national television coverage. Collegiate sports are as close to a professional environment as it’s possible to get. A normal schedule involves one to two training sessions or practices a day plus additional sports-specific weights and fitness sessions within an athletic scholarship. All this is alongside a full university degree program.

Athletic scholarships are funded sports programs that include Football (Soccer), Golf, Basketball, Tennis, Field Hockey, American Football, Baseball, Swimming & Diving, Track and Field, Fencing, Rowing (Crew), Skiing, Gymnastics, and many more athletic scholarship programs.
