With FirstPoint USA we have found the ideal relationship partner. Just like Schächter Sports, FirstPoint USA will offer perspectives and opportunities through sport.

Through our partnership with FirstPoint USA all our partners and players will

  • get support and guidance for parents, players and coaching staff regarding all matters relating to American college sport and the football scholarship process
  • get access to scholarship placement services and pastoral support to the student athletes who have been recruited through the Schächter Sports partnership
  • get free access to FirstPoint’s online "scholarship matchmaking" platform
  • get invitations to mutual scouting camps and Schächter Sports feedback documents will be shared with FirstPoint USA (upon approval)

Our cooperation will provide players and their families with additional opportunities created through football. Not only will players be coached as players and athletes but they will also be prepared for a career in international education and get access to scholarships at US universities.

This gives our partners, sponsors and investors an even wider range of using football to impact young people and their families’ lives in a very sustainable and holistic way by combining sports, social skills, international experiences, education and enabling multiple pathways for a great future.

Our partner FirstPoint USA is the market leader in supporting students on sports scholarships and the only company in the world that is certified by the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletics Association), the AIRC (American International Recruitment Council), NAIA (National Intercollegiate Athletics Association), and NJCAA (National Junior College Athletic Association) to deliver exciting academic and sporting opportunities to international students on behalf of universities across the USA and Canada.

With international offices in Glasgow, London, Manchester, Shanghai, Dubai and Melbourne, a 70+ strong team of former US scholarship athletes has chosen to give back to the next generation. Founded in 2001 and now as part of the UCFB Group, FirstPoint USA has 20 years of experience in changing the lives of over 30 000 talented young sportsmen and women and empowering their futures while providing scouting services to over 2 500 American universities and their sports teams.
