- Personal meating
When your SQ has been evaluated by our staff we contact you to discuss your options and how to continue in the process. The most common is to schedule a personal meeting where we go into detail in the application process, discussing academic & athletic options and an activity plan. The personal meeting gives you the best opportunity to discuss your personal requests, your prerequisites, complementary steps and tests to conduct and your chances of scholarships etc. It is important to clarify what complementary actions that needs to be taken by you as the student in order to improve on your possibilities to be successful in the US. You can also report your interest in participating in tryouts, so called “showcases” that are arranged by Scandinavian Sports.
Since Scandinavian Sports have a very good relationship with the coaching community in the US we prefer to always personally evaluate our athletes after having seen them in practice or in competition. This aspect which we are alone in conducting gives you as an athlete a greater chance of finding a university that fits your competitive level. The end result of this process gives you a better ability to match you with the right college or university and increases your chances to scholarships.
