Sport Scout opportunties
Athletes USA Sport Scouting is more than just a career in sports, it’s about helping future student-athletes reach their dreams of becoming a college athlete.
We started our scouting program back in 2010, which has now become an integral part of how we recruit the very best athletes across the world. Our world class scouting team has over 100 scouts in over 25 countries, recruiting in more than 24 sports.
Our scouting operation works so that, before any athlete becomes an Athletes USA client, an athlete will have been initially assessed by one of our scouts. You can be sure any Athletes USA client was pre-identified and assessed by our scouting team before they are signed to our programme. That’s why our clients are recognized by college coaches as some of the highest quality athletes within the college sports system.
Support and training
Join our international scouting team and you’ll benefit from a first class training programme to help you recruit top athletes, leading to athletic scholarships for those athletes you recruit. You’ll get ongoing support from our regional offices and advice to help you maximize your scouting.
One of the main benefits of working with the Athletes USA scouting team is our flexible working hours, you are able to set your own hours and work from anywhere. However, you do get what you put in, the more hours you put in the more financially rewarding the position will become.
We have over 25 locations worldwide
What we look for in prospect scouts
We don’t accept just anyone for an Athletes USA Scout position. We look for a wide range of skills but most importantly we prefer our scouts to have a good sports network and knowledge of the American college system. What we look for:
• High personal integrity
• High standards of people management and communication
• Network within sport
• The personality to be an excellent ambassador for Athletes USA
• Former college athlete, or extensive knowledge of the U.S college system and sports
Active in the community
We encourage all of our scouts to be active in the community. Usually, you will attend community sport events to pre-assess athletes and speak with interested clients. It’s very common that you will present to large and small groups of athletes/parents on how Athletes USA can help provide sport scholarships to athletes in America.
We created Athletes USA to help athletes fulfill their dreams
