Meg first met Chris when going to row in the US was still just an idea and the Study & Play USA team helped us make Meg’s dream to row overseas a reality. There’s no way Meg would be in America much less at The University of Connecticut on a rowing scholarship without the help and guidance of Study & Play USA. From uploading training footage, contacting coaches and schools, visa paperwork and building profiles there are so many steps involved to get to a college in the US and Chris and Alexa were instrumental in coaching us through the entire process. Study & Play USA was committed to helping us find a college in the United States that was not only the most athletically appropriate but the best fit for Meg as a student too. Meg started at UConn in January as a freshman and Human Rights Major, she is loving her new home and her new team. We absolutely could not have done it without Chris and Alexa, thank you so much Study & Play USA.

How do I know if I qualify? Am I good enough?


The best way to find this out is to contact us, and we will provide for you an obligation free academic and athletic assessment. These assessments provide you with definitive feedback that will allow you to make an informed decision about whether or not this pathway is for you.


Why can’t I just do it myself?


You can do so if you wish. However, the danger with attempting this process by yourself is that much of the process may be able to be completed, but it only takes one error or oversight in paperwork for you to miss out or run out of time, affecting your eligibility to compete in college sports. Many applicants come to Study & Play USA having attempted the process on their own having hit a ‘brick wall’ in the process. It is unfortunate for those who have given up on such a great opportunity due to these obstacles turning them off. For this reason, engaging Study & Play USA to facilitate and guide you through the process gives you peace of mind and a wealth of experience.
