Collegesport.us is a database/homepage dedicated to help young student athletes connect with the right college and coach
The site was developed by Michael Axelsen, who was inspired by the difficulties he discovered when his own children were looking for a golf program. In the process of finding or being found by the right coach, he found it very difficult to match his children with the right college, especially as international students. This complex situation can sometimes lead to a mismatch in expectations which can result in an unhappy student and a disappointed coach. This is why Michael decided to create a tool to connect college coaches and potential international students.
Michael did some research and talked to many coaches, parents, and former student-athletes, he found that there was a link missing in the recruiting process. A tool that can share detailed information between the student and the coach, which will assist in the decision process for both parties and ensure a better match between student and college.
Based on his research, he created collegesport.us, a database where potential student-athlete in sports like golf, tennis soccer and others, can register themselves and the coach will have access to all the details shared by the student. This will help avoid misunderstandings and help the student and the coach get a better picture of each other.
Today there are several college coaches registered. Collegesport.us has already helped coaches and students connect, and resulting in verbal commitments and NLI signings to e.g. University of Florida, University of Texas and others.
Please feel free to register and scroll through the site. We will suggest that you register today. Once you are registered, we manually permit you access to our full portal of schools or students if you are a coach.
Only coaches approved by us, will have access to the private information shared by the student.
We are very open to suggestions for improvements, as we are a dynamic site and our only interest is to make the recruiting process easier for students and coaches. If you have ideas how to make it easier for you to find the right college, or for you as a coach to find the right student, please do not hesitate to contact us.
