We know the importance of study for the formation of the individual, and we are sure that sports have many benefits as well. While in Brazil we have to decide between one or the other, in the United States they unite both aspects with a lot of professionalism.

Benefits of Studying and Playing in the USA


With a high investment in athletic programs, the Universities have facilities that are better than many professional teams in Brazil. You can enjoy fields, courts, gym, physical therapy, and world class preparation with professionals who work full time with the teams.


The right level for your sporting profile. With several college leagues, the United States has opportunities for both amateur athletes in their sport and those who play at a high level and dream of turning professional.


The exposure to other cultures and the experiences exchanged will be incredible for your personal and professional future, expanding business possibilities after you graduate.


The United States invest a lot in their teachers and academic materials to be innovative and bring the best when it comes to education. Fluent English will always be your ally as you seek job opportunities.


In four years of college, you will meet many people and understand how the American work system works. Opportunities will arise and you will have 1-3 years after graduating to acquire professional experience.

Bruno Freitas

My name is Bruno Freitas, I'm a student of a college in United States. At the very beginning of the admission process it is very important to have help from someone who has already been through the process, both with sports scholarships and documentation, as it happened to me. Victor helped me with college recruiting, in which he got a sports scholarship and because he already had experience with college soccer in the United States, he was able to guide me more easily to acquire the necessary documentation to be accepted into college, which made my onboarding process much easier.

The three major college leagues that offer scholarships are the NCAA, NAIA, and NJCAA.

The NCAA is the main college league in the United States. It includes the largest universities in the country and is worth millions of dollars per year through television, sponsors, and events, not to mention a million-dollar investment in sports scholarships.

The league is divided into three divisions. Divisions 1 and 2 offer sports scholarships while division 3 only offers academic scholarships, even though they have sports teams. This division is not by college size or technical/academic level. The number of sports with scholarships offered is the determining factor in the division of the Universities. This mostly ends up leaving the larger universities in the top divisions because they have more sports and financial incentives, but there is a good mix of level between division 1 and 2.

The NAIA is made up of smaller universities located mostly in cities within the states. The league has a high level of competition with teams even competing against NCAA teams in pre-season friendlies. About 220 universities are part of the league and make up the various conferences spread across the country.

The NJCAA is composed of Junior Colleges, colleges known to be easier to get into because they have fewer academic requirements. American universities require high academic achievement both in high school and on SAT and TOEFL tests, so many student-athletes begin their academic careers at Junior Colleges. With very competitive teams, the league has high visibility from four-year colleges because they recruit athletes who are more ready than an 18-year-old freshman coming out of high school. Remember that JUCOs are two-year colleges, where you transfer your academic credits to a four-year college to finish your last two years. With the two years at Junior College, you will have an Associates Degree but will need to complete two more years to receive your Bachelor's degree.
