Laura Faherty- Charly & Halle Faherty (University of Richmond & Fresno Pacific University)

Our agent was awesome. Very professional and thorough. KAA did a great job helping us navigate the recruitment process which at times can seem overwhelming. Very reassuring, supportive, and encouraging and happy to report 2 very successful placements for our daughters.

Caroline Leaky- Anne Leakey (Dickinson College)

KAA have been amazing, helping us navigate the US Uni system, and supporting us with U.S. contacts, negotiations and decision-making. KAA always responded promptly to our queries and concerns and took a personal interest in my daughter’s progress. Have ended up with a really good offer and am very excited that my daughter starts in the US soon. Thank you!

Deirdre Allen- Alistair Hearmon (Ohio Wesleyan University)

My son was a transfer student, we were recommended Kiwi Athletes Agency to support his transfer and we couldn’t be happier. Georgia was absolutely amazing. She was incredibly professional throughout the process. Ensuring our son didn’t jump into the first offer but thought about what he wanted and why he was transferring. Her continuous support ensured we were confident with his final choice and all the formalities were completed timely and painlessly. Thank you KAA!

Tom Moore - Matilda Moore (San Jose State University)

The Athletes Agency team guided us through the process of finding the best fit for our daughter. Matilda is now playing with and against some of the best players in the world enhancing her skills in hope of further water polo representative honours.

Barbara Burton - Monique Burton (Southern Mississippi University)

The Athletes Agency team has been and still is extremely helpful with anything regarding college tennis in the USA. They guided us every step of the way, which has made the experience a whole lot less stressful than if we were trying to do it by ourselves.

Debbie Gardiner - Scott Gardiner (ASA Miami)

We can’t speak highly enough about the Athletes Agency team and our experience with them over this last year. They have given us full support over this time and guided us every step of the way. Our experience with them has made the whole process of helping our son follow the path of his dream to USA college so much easier. Thank you.

Mandy Chew - Tamie Chew (Coker College)

We found Athletes Agency very helpful, knowledgeable and experienced in guiding our daughter to choose a college in the USA to pursue her studies whilst playing tennis. I have no hesitancy in recommending Athletes Agency team.

Franca & Phil Michetti - Jordan Doull (Columbus State University)

Our experience with the Athletes Agency team was first class. Their knowledge about the U.S. College system was extraordinary. If it wasn’t for them I just don’t know how we would have dealt with some of the hurdles we had a long the way. They were constantly in touch with us, and always giving us encouragement to not despair and were always optimistic even when we were all a bit stressed with the process. They were always professional and their attitude to all our concerns was always met with enthusiasm, patience and care. After months of back and forward with U.S. Colleges and the NCAA, they secured our son Jordan a Golf Scholarship to Columbus State University and we haven’t been more happier. More so my son who is excelling in his studies and Golf and is absolutely loving the U.S.. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the assistance and care you gave us in getting our Jordan to the U.S.. You were an absolute delight to deal with and amazing human beings and we are forever indebted to you.

Peter Sinclair - Colin Sinclair (Cornell University)

As parents, we could not be happier with the College outcome and the scholarship award for our son Colin. We are originally from North America so we are quite familiar with the U.S. University process. We debated whether we could manage the process on our own. We concluded about 18 months ago that we wanted to work with the Athletes Agency team to help secure a place for our son Colin and are extremely happy that we did. We can quite emphatically state that the process is a lot more involved than we even realized and their familiarity with both the process and the various colleges was absolutely invaluable in securing an outstanding opportunity for our son Colin at Cornell University. If we had tried to achieve a similar result on our own, we just would not have been able to be as successful. They were terrific in helping with every step of the process from their fantastic effort with Colin’s tennis video to understanding the right College for Colin and everything in between. We would give them the absolutely highest recommendation and in fact we have already done this for several families that were considering the U.S. college system as a possibility.

Megan Williams - Ted Williams (Campbell University)

Our experience with the Athletes Agency team has been fantastic. Thanks to them, my son got a great offer in December from Campbell University (NCAA Div 1 tennis) for a January 2018 start and they waere just brilliant in helping us turn it around in 4 short weeks from accepting the initial offer to getting my son on a plane; walking us through every step, always available for help and guidance. Ted’s first semester has been an amazing experience all round. He’s settled in, played a great season, a great team experience and helped Campbell come second in their conference. Their continued care for athletes and their families is impressive too. They are always available to offer support and stay in touch, even checking in to see how how we are going as a family. Really couldn’t ask for more!

Linda Watterson - Emi Watterson (University of California-Berkeley) & Andy Watterson (Saint Mary's College)

The Athletes Agency team’s extensive connections, knowledge and experiences in the U.S. collegiate system not only as former coaches, but students, is immensely valuable to their success. During the process of finding the colleges for my two children from two totally different sports, what we found more impressive is their highly engaging approach in communication. This is particularly beneficial for their clients when backed by their passion in finding the right fit for each and every one of the young athletes entrusting their future education in them. I will have no hesitation to recommend any aspiring young athlete to contact them to explore the options of an exciting U.S. college experience.

Grace Shiu - Kyra Yap (Rutgers University)

We started talking to the Athletes Agency Team in Year 9 to ensure that we understood the required subject choices, grades and tennis level required to be able to be considered by the universities we were interested in. This allowed them to talk to coaches about Kyra (during years 10 and 11) so that in Year 12, when the universities were recruiting, she was amongst the mix with her U.S. peers. They were able to secure Kyra a position at a highly academic university in the scientific fields with coaches that understood her level of tennis. We would like to give a special thanks to them for working tirelessly behind the scenes as Kyra refined the experience and education she wanted from her U.S. university.

Leo & Kelli Ryan - Josh Ryan (Winthrop University)

A Big Thank You to the Athlete Agency team. If you are a parent considering sending your son or daughter to continue their education while still playing their chosen sport at an elite level then I would encourage you to talk to them. 4yrs ago they guided us through the process of choosing a college for our son. The college has given our son, who is about to turn 21, a wonderful opportunity both academically and in his chosen sport. One of the most comforting aspects of their service was their knowledge of the college system and knowing that we could call them at any stage if we needed to. Everything they said they would do, they did and we cannot thank them enough for the opportunity they helped give to our son Joshua.Update: We’ve just boarded our flight to LA. Just wanted to say thanks for all your efforts 4 yrs ago in getting Josh to College. Without your help we would never have been able to give Josh the wonderful opportunity that it has been for him. What your company does for the youth is wonderful.

John Wall - George Wall (Dartmouth College)

The Athletes Agency team has been instrumental in the decision we have made for our son’s future. We wouldn’t have even considered applying to the college that George has been accepted into, and in fact, did not realise that Dartmouth College boasted such a high profile amongst universities across the globe. Furthermore, to travel to universities such as Princeton, Columbia, Yale and Harvard to compete against players good enough to be inside the world’s Top 1000 players, on a weekly basis, is better than any other environment we are aware of, for a 17 year old. The college itself is worth over $5.3bn, its facilities are world class and the post-graduate opportunities are endless. We are extremely comfortable that our son is heading into a safe environment with an exciting future. Great thanks to them for direction, support and knowledge transferred through the process and for their invaluable assistance in setting up this opportunity for our son. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to assist in your son or daughter’s future growth.

Helen Munro - Rosie Munro (Indiana University)

Thank you to the Athletes Agency team for everything they have done with helping our daughter gain a place in the U.S. to join the Indiana Women’s Rowing squad while studying her desired degree in Bloomington, Indiana. GO HOOSIERS. Your constant support and guidance through this process is much appreciated. We would recommend them to anyone who may be interested in following their dream in heading to the U.S. as a student athlete.

Vinod & Reena Tiwari - Charleen Tiwari (University of Texas - San Antonio)

We have great pleasure in writing this letter of recommendation for the the Athletes Agency team who helped our daughter Charleen Tiwari earn multiple options in U.S. Division I Universities. Charleen eventually accepted a place at the University of Texas at San Antonio with a full scholarship with the tennis program. We found them professional, highly efficient and responsive and a treat to deal with. They created a personalised tailor-made campaign for Charleen which matched her tennis and academic aspirations. They set the right expectations and provided impeccable guidance that Charleen and we as parents needing in the journey of applying and selecting the right U.S. college. At all stages of this over this year long campaign, they kept us updated of the progress and through their tremendous personal networks, contact and effective website interface opened up multiple opportunities for Charleen. Right from the initial stage of creating a tennis relevant CV and opening discussions with coaches down to organising campus visits, they diligently managed all steps and processes to make the journey stress free and rewarding. It was a pleasure working with them. We wish them continuing success and best wishes and take this opportunity in recommending them wholeheartedly to other parents seeking the college pathway option for their children.

Kellie Kelly - Chelsea Kelly (Cardinal Stritch University)

The Athletes Agency team was absolutely outstanding! Right from start to finish they guided and supported us at every stage along the way, making the entire process easy and we felt 100% supported the whole time. Their own experiences in the U.S. College system helped our daughter to know and understand truly what to expect when she arrived in the U.S., allowing her to be as prepared as she could be when she got there. Our daughter has just completed her first years final exams, and she is currently at the National N.A.I.A. Tennis Championships in Alabama. She is loving every second and every aspect of her entire experience over there. They have actively stayed in touch with her throughout the year and continues to give advice and guidance. Could not be happier & thoroughly recommend their services to potential U.S. College athletes. Thank you, you are amazing!

Graeme & Jodie Cooke - Nathan Cooke (William Woods University)

Our experience with the Athletes Agency team has been fantastic. With their assistance, and extensive knowledge of the U.S. college system we were able to make an informed decision and found a college that was the correct fit for our son Nathan, that allowed him to continue playing competitive tennis while studying in his chosen field. Their assistance does not stop after the recruitment process, with them making themselves available at any time, for support, and to answer any questions and concerns we have had. Nathan is thoroughly enjoying his college experience and is excelling both athletically and academically. We would have no hesitation in recommending Kiwi Athletes Agency to anyone considering entering the U.S. college system. Thank you for allowing us to be part of the family.

Catherine Bautista - Gemma Bautista (Dartmouth College)

The Athletes Agency team provided great support and information from start to finish with the entire process. I would highly recommend contacting them if you are interested in pursuing a college career in the United States. Going through the process alone would have been very daunting. They were able provide great knowledge and advice with many aspects. My daughter would not be where she is today without all their help. It anyone wants a life-changing experience, look to the Athletes Agency team!

Jacek Kudziela - Aggie Kudziela (Saint Mary's College)

We would like to officially to thank you for this quite long, but eventually a very successful journey. Your assistance and guidance was very helpful throughout the whole recruitment process and we are very happy with the final outcome. We hope that Aggie will have a fantastic 4-year experience in the U.S., both in sport and academically, in such a great school as Saint Mary’s College of California.

Tony & Terri Avis - James Avis (Dixie State University)

I would like to thank you for all that you have done for James over the past year. We appreciate everything that you did to facilitate this opportunity for him. You were also key in keeping James ‘on track’ through that very chaotic few days prior to his sudden departure. Your advice and reassurance were deeply valued. James seems to have hit the ground running. You have helped him to realise his dream, and for this we sincerely thank you.

Trevor & Julia Fulton - Jack Fulton (Feather River College)

We would like to personally thank you for organising Jack a position at Feather River College, to further his soccer dream. Your professionalism was second to none and you walked us through every step of the way. You answered all her concerns and then even told us to wait in relation to offers etc from other colleges, before Jack makes his mind up. It was great that you kept in regular contact with Jack as well through the process, to make sure he understood what was going on. Most of all you gave us a selection of opportunities for Jack and gave Jack pros and cons for each college as well as keeping us informed. We would be more than happy to assist you in talking to other parents if they have any concerns. I am sure we will be talking more over the next few years and once again thank you.

Stuart Fraser - Jamie Fraser (University of Louisiana-Lafayette)

I just wanted to thank you personally for everything you have done to help Jamie’s dream of playing College tennis become real.  Thank you for putting in a good word to Mark at UL Lafayette and allowing him to meet Jamie and choose him not necessarily on recent results but on merit. Stu showed me a great article on the Rajin Cajun’s tennis website earlier today, and it really makes it seem more real. Jamie just can’t wait to get there and start his new chapter in life.
