Attend a Soccer Trial

Our inclusive football trial events are carefully planned and coached to allow young sportsmen and women of all levels of ability to exhibit their athletic talent and skills to our highly experienced scouting teams and provide an open platform to learn more about the life-changing opportunities that a college scholarship in the US can offer. As a student-athlete in America, you’ll have access to some of the very best educational and athletic facilities on the planet and enjoy one of the most unique experiences that come along with being a full-time student-athlete.

The football trial event will last approximately 3 hours and will include the following elements:

  • An introductory presentation delivered by our specialist sports consultancy team
  • Q&A with former student-athletes on the experience and opportunity in the USA
  • Warm-up session and introduction to the format of the trial
  • Position-specific drills with our UEFA-certified coaching team
  • Small-sided games
  • Review & feedback

On the day of the event, you’ll have the chance to ask questions and talk to some of our experienced former student-athletes about their own time over in the States to get a feel for what a typical day in the life would be like on campus. Our specialist sports consultants will also conduct a short presentation for you and your parents to explore the finer details of being a student-athlete at a US college or university and what it truly means to be an ambassador for both the men’s and women’s sports community at the institution

What our Student-Athletes say about us

Josh Mulhenny
"They've gone above and beyond "

Can't thank the guys at FirstPoint USA enough for helping my son get out to the US on a soccer scholarship. He's now in his second year in America and is loving it despite being homesick for the first few weeks! We spoke with multiple different companies before deciding which company to choose and although they weren't the cheapest, they've been with us every step of the way and only been a phone call or text message away if we had any issues. They never made any false promises or unrealistic expectations and delivered the service exactly as described. They've gone above and beyond to make sure we were well looked after every step of the way.

"I couldn't be happier"

I couldn't be happier with my experience working with Firstpoint USA. Having just graduated from university in South Carolina, I am so grateful for the life changing experience and opportunities that have been available to me as an NCAA DI student athlete. None of which would have been possible without the expertise and knowledge of the staff at Firstpoint USA. Would highly recommend FPUSA to anyone thinking about going to university in the USA

"process has been made simple"

The FirstPointUSA team as a whole are excellent. The whole process has been made simple by their clear communication, especially Gemma Thomson who I worked with. The organisation in every aspect of their work is very good, and I would definitely recommend FirstPointUSA to anybody thinking about attaining a scholarship in the US..
