Our Philosophy

At  SSP we specialise in soccer specific scholarships and placements for both men and women in the USA. Because soccer is our sole focus, we offer expert advice throughout a student athlete's entire collegiate journey, and for elite athletes, a route into the professional game. Formed by a team of previous student athletes, SSP provides insight and the tailored support required for our student athletes to maximise their potential.

Soccer Centric

At SSP we concentrate purely on soccer! We have developed fantastic relationships with top US soccer college coaches who trust us to find the players they need.

Quality not quantity

To ensure we provide a fully personalised service, we represent only a small number of students every year. This allows us to invest more time in finding the highest quality student athletes and ensuring they receive the best scholarship offers.

In-depth player appraisal

We don’t believe that trial or showcase games are the best way to fully assess a player’s potential. We like to see players performing in their own environment in their preferred position where they are able to express the best versions of themselves. It's also a chance for us to meet your parents / guardians, who play a huge role in the overall process. By investing our time in this way, we are better equipped to find the most suitable college for each student athlete.

Long-term relationship

As former student athletes ourselves, there was a common feeling that once you were on the plane to the US, the consultancy that had found your college was no longer interested.

We recognise there will be times when students need support and we see this as a key part of our role. For example, students that go to two year colleges will need to transfer to a four year college, so we work with students to secure the best transfer offers.

For those talented enough to play at a highest level we provide a pathway into the professional game whether in the US or internationally. Due to our partnership with soccer agency RE|MGMT, who represent numerous former student athletes, including Jack Harrison and Rose Lavelle, we are able to advise and help student athletes develop their professional careers.

US & UK operations

With bases in London & New York City, we develop and maintain close relationships with both the student athletes and college coaches. We will regularly look to attend games and be a point of contact.
