Who We Are
“Pursue the Dream” TM
"To Empower High School Student-Athletes and Parents Through Education"
AthleticScholarshipsDirect.com is a user-friendly, NCAA Compliant web portal that eliminates confusion and serves as a time saving, economical, empowering facilitator of information and direct communication tool for parents and their High School Student-Athletes.
Regardless of your knowledge of the College Athletic Recruiting process, AthleticScholarshipsDirect.com will make the search for college athletic scholarships less challenging.
Our advanced profile building and search tools allow you to make direct contact with the Coaches who are responsible for evaluating prospective athletic talent and awarding athletic scholarships at their respective Colleges and Universities.
As former D1 College Athletic Administrators and Scholarship Athletes, we have personally witnessed the confusion and frustration that Parents and High School student-athletes express while attempting to navigate through the morass of information concerning opportunities for college athletic scholarships, especially at the D 1-AA through NAIA levels.
We are not one of those high priced "Athlete Marketing", "Athlete Evaluation", or "Recruiting Services". Through ASD you communicate directly with the College Coaches and Recruiters who make the ultimate decision about whether or not your child receives an Athletic Scholarship.
Before ASD, The only realistic options available today were either your Student-Athlete’s High School coach with a limited universe of college contacts; High priced “Athlete marketing” services (7-10K); or having to spend months contacting schools directly on an individual basis, filling out recruiting forms at every stop.
Additionally, the competition for College financial aid is going to increase exponentially over the next 9 years (through 2018-19 Academic Year) with public high school graduation rates increasing 9% in that window, the largest group being the graduating class of 2015 (US Department of Education – Institute of Education Studies).
We have listened to the parents of High School Student-Athletes for years about the confusion and concern over finding any scintilla of information on potential scholarships, especially if “My kid isn’t an ESPN 150 talent, but can play at some level”.
Coaches at every Collegiate level start building recruiting files on Student-Athletes as freshmen in High School. Like everything else in life, you will only get the full value out of your investment in our service if you start early, update your profile after every season, and send it to coaches at many institutions.
Through our portal, parents and student-athletes will now have one-stop access to decision makers at over 1800 Institutions and 25,000 College Coaches at the Division 1 through Junior College level, as well as a wealth of practical, relevant and current information at their fingertips from a variety of sources including the NCAA.
Finally, through our exclusive High School Rewards program, we are committed to giving back to High School Athletics by contributing 25% of every ASD Subscription to your registered State High School Association, High School Athletic Department, Athletic Booster Club or Club Team.
