Did you know that playing college soccer in the US is a great way of still pursuing a professional soccer career, but at the same time getting a university degree – a bachelor’s degree that will certainly prove valuable!

Becoming a professional soccer player is the dream of most players. Earning a professional contract takes hard work, talent, determination and luck. The competition is fierce and the majority of young players are not given the chance to play at the highest level.

Each year college soccer players are being drafted to the MLS (Major League Soccer) and USL (United Soccer Leagues) – the top two divisions in the US. There are also former college players currently playing at the top level all around the world. On the women’s side, college players are being drafted to the WPS (Women’s Professional Soccer) every year.

The demand for talented international soccer players, both women and men, is big in US College Soccer. American coaches like to recruit international players because of their understanding of the game and experience at a high level. Finding the right blend of players for the squad is critical for success in college soccer.

Elijah & DylanCollege Football Coaches in the USA are starting to identify Australia as a hot spot for talent…

Two Australians have been offered a Scholarship to play College Football at Bowling Green University in Bowling Green, Ohio. Bowling Green is a Division 1 College Football program and their Scholarship covers Accommodation, Meals and Education on top of the excellent coaching and competition.

Congratulations to Dylan Harrison and Elijah Sinapati, both from Queensland, Australia who were discovered last year at the Gridiron Australia Future Stars Camp on the Gold Coast.  Elijah (6′ 5″ tall and 141 kg, 310 pounds) and Dylan (6′ 7″ tall and 153kg, 336 pounds) were approached by National Team Coach, Paul Manera, to see if they would be interested in pursuing a College Football Scholarship.

Paul Manera, Director of Bring it on Sports and a former College Football player at the University of Hawaii and Itawamba Community College in Mississippi, is helping Australian’s obtain college scholarships to the USA.

Paul stated that “Having played both Junior College Football and Major College Football it has helped me with my knowledge on how to get a scholarship because I had to do it the hard way so hopefully I can now make it easier for those that follow.  We just want to make sure that we put the players on the right track and the earlier we discover them the easier the process becomes…. we need to make sure that the players are not losing eligibility and that they are also on track academically and athletically”

Paul and the team at Bring it on Sports assist athletes by providing them with the right advice and reaching out to his network of College Football Coaches in the USA.

ACT or SAT: Which To Choose???

Posted: November 19, 2013 in Recruiting USA Scholarships
No Comments


Colleges will accept either the SAT or ACT. So which should you take?

To help you zero in on the right exam, here are seven key differences:

ACT questions tend to be more straightforward.

ACT questions are often easier to understand on a first read. On the SAT, you may need to spend time figuring out what you’re being asked before you can start solving the problem. For example, here are sample questions from the SAT essay and the ACT writing test (their name for the essay):

SAT: What is your view of the claim that something unsuccessful can still have some value?
ACT: In your view, should high schools become more tolerant of cheating?

The SAT has a stronger emphasis on vocabulary.

If you’re an ardent wordsmith, you’ll love the SAT. If words aren’t your thing, you may do better on the ACT.

The ACT has a Science section, while the SAT does not.

You don’t need to know anything about amoebas or chemical reactions for the ACT Science section. It is meant to test your reading and reasoning skills based upon a given set of facts. But if you’re a true science-phobe, the SAT might be a better fit.

The ACT tests more advanced math concepts.

In addition to basic arithmetic, algebra I and II, and geometry, the ACT tests your knowledge of trigonometry, too. That said, the ACT Math section is not necessarily harder, since many students find the questions to be more straightforward than those on the SAT.

The ACT Writing Test is optional on test day, but required by many schools.

The 25-minute SAT essay is required and is factored into your writing score. The 30-minute ACT writing test is optional. If you choose to take it, it is not included in your composite score — schools will see it listed separately. Many colleges require the writing section of the ACT, so be sure to check with the schools where you are applying before opting out.

The SAT is broken up into more sections.

On the ACT, you tackle each content area (English, Math, Reading and Science) in one big chunk, with the optional writing test at the end. On the SAT, the content areas (Critical Reading, Math and Writing) are broken up into 10 sections, with the required essay at the beginning. You do a little math, a little writing, a little critical reading, a little more math, etc. When choosing between the SAT and ACT, ask yourself if moving back and forth between content areas confuse you or keep you energized?

The ACT is more of a “big picture” exam.

College admissions officers care about how you did on each section of the SAT. On the ACT, they’re most concerned with your composite score. So if you’re weak in one content area but strong in others, you could still end up with a very good ACT score and thus make a strong impression with the admissions committee.
