Make your dream of a soccer scholarship in the US come true with Glocal Sports.
EXPERIENCE THE SAME AS HIM
Robin is one of our three Glocal Sports founders and made his way to the University of Virginia in 2016 after graduating from high school and playing in the youth leagues of Alemannia Aachen and Borussia Mönchengladbach. He quickly blossomed into a leader and one of the most academically outstanding student athletes. The videos above give you a glimpse of a typical day for Robin at the university at that time, so that you can better imagine the life of a student athlete.
"Accepting the scholarship in the U.S. was the best decision of my life and has opened doors for me athletically, academically and professionally that I will benefit from for the rest of my life."
Benefits of an
athletic scholarship in the US
As a student athlete at an American university, you benefit from both the academic and athletic resources made available to you as part of an athletic scholarship. You are given the opportunity of not having to choose just one path, but to take the next steps both in the lecture hall and on the playing field in order to achieve your very own goals.
Student athletes are free to decide how they want to spend their time at the university and what priority their own athletic and professional careers have. This freedom, combined with the option of perfecting the English language and meeting people from all over the world, makes athletic scholarships so valuable.
Why Glocal Sports?
Based on Robin’s experiences as a student athlete at an American university, we have made it our mission to give other young people the opportunity to benefit from the advantages of an athletic scholarship in the US. One of our top priorities is close communication with our student athletes throughout the entire process. Robin’s first hand experience along with Kimberly’s administrative and social skills as well as Chika’s function as a German-speaking contact person in the USA allow us to provide you with extensive support.
As a soccer player in the youth league of German Bundesliga clubs, Robin has had the experience of being portrayed as a failed talent, because he did not make the jump to the pros at first attempt. Many girls and boys in Germany feel the same way, but often don’t know that an athletic scholarship is an ideal alternative for pursuing their dreams.
Within four years, Robin graduated from university with a Bachelor of Arts degree and was selected by the Colorado Rapids in the 2020 MLS draft after leading his team to the national championship final as captain shortly before. Now at 25, he is about to graduate with a master’s degree from another elite university and continues to play soccer at a professional level. If you’re interested in a similar career path or are considering an athletic scholarship even without the dream of becoming a professional athlete, Glocal Sports is the perfect place for you.
