Why did you join SPORTMATCH?
I believe the process of finding the right balance between academics, athletics, and quality of life is something that should be thoughtful and well executed. Far too often we see student-athletes compromise or settle when trying to find the right university. I appreciate the consideration, information, and delivery that SPORTMATCH can provide where education and athletics are harmoniously aligned.
What makes SPORTMATCH unique?
Each sport that is represented has a knowledgeable, well-respected and publicly recognized director for their particular division. This model is much more intimate than others in the industry and ultimately shows through delivery and allows for long term success.
