Shoot for the Stars
Liaison International Program
The college program is geared towards helping at-risk high school and community college students (who wish to attend a four year college) to acquire academic and athletic scholarship aid. The program targets students from low- to moderate-income households and geographies, and those in dire need of academic and financial support.
Young athletes should have an equal opportunity to maximize their potential by sharing their gifts and talents in a sport that requires discipline, commitment sportsmanship, and an honest effort, while experiencing practical learning and academic enrichment in the global community to prepare them for the real world.
To educate and mentor students and student-athletes by collaborating with domestic collegiate coaches and academic recruiters who are interested in recruiting domestic and international students and student-athletes. We will also provide athletes with numerous scholarship options to universities and colleges.
U.S. Elite International Track and Field Club act as a liaison between domestic college coaches and domestic and international high school athletes. Most young athletes have great talents and promising track and field futures. U.S. Elite strives to assist these athletes to perform to their maximum potential. We endeavor to foster sportsmanship, leadership, and healthy athletes while supporting their transition from high school to college and also through elite competition.
Because most coaches have reservations about staying in touch with young, aspiring athletes (due to NCAA rules), U.S. Elite act as the middleman, per se, acquiring information from top colleges and passing it on to domestic and international coaches and athletes. Coaches will track athletes' progress via our website or personal contact with US Elite. Coaches then through following the progress of these athletes, will consider recruiting them while remaining in compliance with the NCAA communication regulations www.ncaa.org. Athletes in their senior year of high school should focus on their academics rather than worrying about who is going to give them a scholarship to college.
In the past, many athletes have been placed in Junior Colleges, Division II, or NAIA schools, where they have to red shirt their first year, and may not receive adequate coaching or get much needed exposure. This really blights them. The reason for this is because some domestic athletes as well as international athletes do not know the academic requirements for colleges in the U.S. and so they do not get a chance to exercise their options of choosing a college or university that has a good track and field program that will help them to capitalize on their talents or natural ability. In addition, many international athletes are misled by domestic coaches who have made empty promises to them. Later these athletes find themselves in vulnerable situations or financial difficulties. As a result, some athletes are not able to finish college and for others, their track career die before they even get a chance to flourish. This program intends to bridge the gap between at-risk students' difficulty in finding scholarship opportunities and their academic success rate.
