How Smarthlete Was Born
We were privileged to receive athletic (and academic) scholarships to play collegiate tennis ourselves. But our routes before committing to NAIA and NCAA tennis programs looked very different. One of us used a recruiting service - the other one was contacted by coaches during his final years on the ITF tour.
And we thought there's got to be something that we can do to help improve the way athletes and coaches find each other. And Smarthlete's journey started.
Smarthlete is a combination of two words: "smart" - financing your studies by playing college sports - a great choice. "athlete" - don't quit doing what you love. Be student and athlete at the same time!
