Our Athletes Think
Long Beach State, NCAA D-I
I worked with Smarthlete and I think that was one of the best decisions that I have made because it changed my future. I strongly recommend Smarthlete to all my athlete friends.
University of Charleston, NCAA D-II
During the collaboration, you felt familiar with the team and after some time they feel more like friends. They always showed me what the next steps are and how they do it for me or how I can do them on my own. I can just recommend Smarthlete to every athlete, who wants to try to receive a scholarship in the USA.
Belmont University, NCAA D-I
Smarthlete was a great part of my recruiting process. It has all the possibilities for the student athlete to find a suitable college to play sports in. Besides these opportunities, I sincerely want to thank Yannick who approached my wishes and questions personally and very fast!
Smarthlete is a better way for players and coaches to connect. After creating your full resume, including pictures, videos and accomplishments, you will be able to view schools and their coaches and know when they view your profile. There is no other site out there making interaction so easy and transparent to both sides.
West Virginia Wesleyean College, NCAA D-II
Thank you for getting me on a team in the U.S.! I couldn’t have wished for a better place!
ASA Miami, NJCAA
At first I wasted a lot of time looking for contact addresses and descriptions of colleges on my own. Then I found Smarthlete. Smarthlete made it very easy to create a professional recruiting profile & get in touch with coaches. I’ve been in contact with coaches from 21 colleges before committing to one.
University of Tulsa, NCAA D-I
If you want to find a good university, Smarthlete will help you with everything! Thank you Smarthlete!
Middle Georgia State, NAIA
It is not easy to find the right college for you, and Smarthlete is very helpful in this case. Especially the first steps in starting your college career, it is almost necessary to have someone who guides you. They support you with whatever question you have.
Academy of Art University, NCAA D-II
A friend of mine recommended to use Smarthlete. It wasn’t until I got started with the recruiting process though, that I realized how complicated it actually is. Luckily this platform and the extremely helpful team have helped me a great deal fulfilling my dream. Thanks a lot for the support and help.

Many people think coaches always have the maximum number of scholarships available - or that coaches have the same amount of money available, which makes for a level playing field. But did you know that's not the reality and not all college sports programs dispose of the maximum budget? Some coaches work with the limitation of being partially funded and other coaches with no available athletic scholarship budget at all.

All the talk about full-ride scholarships, partial scholarship or walk-ons. How does all of this actually work? How much scholarship money does a coach have to give to players? What does a scholarship cover and how are the various divisions different from each other?
