YOUR PATHWAY TO A SCHOLARSHIP AND COLLEGE SOCCER IN AMERICA
We are a scouting agency focused on recruiting those who have a passion for soccer
At EASA, we scout and develop a student’s athletic talent in a structured training environment. The aim is to get recruited by reputable USA colleges and receive potential scholarships to play college soccer, whilst studying towards a bachelor’s degree.
Built for the modern student-athlete, our practices have been designed on what will drive results in player growth and US college placement. Each student will go through our 3-step process which will prepare them for their college integration.
EASA creates a gateway into USA colleges for aspiring Australian athletes to pursue both education and sport, without sacrificing one over the other. With our practical approach, we connect athletes to their very own college coaches through one of our three major university leagues.
Our aim is to provide training, personal development, and support in a way that will enable students to reach their full potential. EASA takes pride in providing proactive and innovative support on a personal level to create the perfect environment in order for student-athletes to succeed.
Signing on with EASA means you will be working with a structured program that aims to get you onto a potential college scholarship. If you’re hoping to live that all American dream, playing a sport you love – EASA will get you there.
Please note: Colleges are not permitted to offer any athletic scholarships. However, most colleges are able to award academic scholarships depending on the athletes academic ability.
The National College Athletics Association (NCAA) is the most prestigious and well known college sports organization in the USA. NCAA Division I is extremely competitive and registers approximately 500,000 student-athletes annually. In order to play regularly on a Division I team, student- athletes must possess outstanding ability within their sport. However, due to the highly competitive nature, students can potentially receive up to a 100% scholarship to cover college costs.
NCAA Division II is similar in competition and the reputable nature of Division I institutions. Student-athletes are still eligible for maximum financial scholarship opportunities, however Division II colleges generally have lower budgets which makes full-ride scholarship opportunities slightly harder to obtain.
NCAA Division III accounts for smaller public and private based institutions. Competitive standards tend to be lower than the other two divisions as the supply for athletic scholarship opportunities are uncommon in this division. While you won’t be able to gain an athletic scholarship at the Division III level, you might be able to obtain an academic scholarship which can greatly help in offsetting college costs.
The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletes (NAIA) mostly comprises smaller private universities. The athletic and academic standards aren’t as high compared with the NCAA, and there are fewer rules regarding foreign athletes. This makes the NAIA a great platform for international athletes seeking scholarship opportunities. Despite lower athletic standards, it is not a reflection of NAIA's competitive nature - in fact, NAIA Division I can be compared to NCAA Division II.
The National Junior College Athletic Association is made up of 2-year community colleges. These community colleges are small, and have very few academic requirements for acceptance. As opposed to large NCAA universities, community colleges are a more affordable alternative, and many students in the US choose to attend community colleges before transferring their course credits over to a larger university later on. NJCAA holds lower competitive standards compared to the NCAA and NAIA. Many athletes pursue the NJCAA pathway to improve their abilities before transferring to a higher division. Colleges may grant full athletic scholarships for this division.
Similar to division I, NJCAA division III can provide endless amounts of opportunities. Despite the division being the third in the association, it still attracts highly talented student-athletes including youth academy players that have recently been released from their club and are now looking for fresh avenues.
