We are pleased to announce we have entered into a partnership with John Robinson Soccer USA.
John Robinson Soccer USA (JRS-USA) harnesses the priceless opportunity that American colleges offer students and create extraordinary experiences for you to continue to develop as a footballer.
The team at JRS-USA realise the unrivalled opportunity that is available through the American college sports system for international student footballers, but understands the complexities involved in taking the first step.
The American college coaches don’t know where to look, and potential student-athletes don’t know where to start. The two pieces of the puzzle combined leads to a complicated and challenging process to overcome.
But, JRS-USA makes this process seamless, accessible and efficient, giving you an elite and personal service as they leverage your football ability with the growing demand for international student ‘soccer’ players at American colleges.
Founder, John Robinson, is a former Sussex based ex-premier league and international player, with first-hand experience of the American scholarship system. He is passionate about creating American college scholarship opportunities for players in the most efficient way possible.
John’s team of staff at JRS-USA consist of former professionals, former college players and college coaches. Players will have access to the coaches and players who live and have lived, the American experience, and parents will have access to other parents who have gone through the process in UK and America with their own son or daughter.
Speaking about the partnership, John said: "Being from Sussex and having played for the county, it is fitting that our first County FA partnership is with Sussex. This shows the County FA's commitment to offering their players another football opportunity and possible life changing experience.
“Here at JRS-USA we have the exclusive rights in Europe to College Fit Finder, the first college recruitment player portal to come to England. It is the number one technology player portal in America and the most gratifying aspect for me is that it is affordable for every player looking at the USA college route.
“I look forward to working together with the team at the Sussex County FA in the future. We will be announcing the first set of Sussex Player ID Showcase Events soon!”
Darren Ford, Marketing & Communications Manager at the Sussex County FA, said: “We’re delighted to be linking up with John Robinson Soccer USA to offer Sussex footballers an alternative pathway to progress their football careers.
“John has strong ties with Sussex football and his enthusiasm, knowledge and experience of the American Soccer Scholarship programme will help players who would love this opportunity, make it a reality!”
