We are a New Zealand owned and operated company based in California. We are from Christchurch and graduated from The University of Canterbury as Physical Education teachers. We have over 5 years of experience coaching in the NCAA system and first-hand experience with what it takes to succeed as a student in America having completed a Masters degree on an F1 visa. We lived in Boston for 5 years and have now been in San Diego for over 3 years.

Our company is based on the belief that New Zealand athletes should have the opportunity to experience the American Student-Athlete lifestyle. It is not only a chance to improve and build upon your sporting skills, but to experience the world, experience new cultures, and grow as an individual. 

The 4 years you spend in the USA, competing for and representing a college or university will set the tone for the rest of your life. 

We know what it takes to succeed in the American college environment and will be with you every step of the way as you decide on your future. You are not just a name and an email address to us. We strive to add the personal touch and to get to know your family. Once you are in the USA we check in on you regularly and are always available for any questions or issues.

We know how beneficial this experience is for young New Zealanders and want to make it a reality for you. 

Please email us with any questions you have about the possibility of studying in the USA.
