We work with athletes who strive to play all divisions of major NCAA, NAIA, Junior and Community College sports. You can see a complete list of the sports we work with on our college sports page. If your sport is not listed on our college sports page, we unfortunately don't work with those athletes at this time.
Our pricing varies based on several factors, including things like the athlete's current age and the number of highlight videos included. The package that's right for you depends on where you are in the recruiting process, but it is generally more cost effective to get started earlier rather than later.
Schedule a time to chat with our team to learn which package fits your athlete best.
We don't track a success rate because what's considered "success" is not the same for each athlete we work with. Is it more successful to receive 10 partial scholarship offers to Division I schools or 1 full scholarship offer to a Division II school? The answer is different based on each athlete's needs and wants, and it's not up to us to determine which is considered a success.
Due to our process of coaches communicating directly with athletes and their families, we also don't always know when an offer has been made or when an athlete commits to a school. If we did track a success rate, its accuracy would completely depend on athletes informing us of their offers and commitments.

Our global headquarters is located in Elizabethtown, Kentucky just outside of Louisville in the United States. Our team works hours based on different time zones, so don't be surprised if you hear from us even if it's the middle of the night here and daytime in your part of the world.
Our team is made of a diverse group of people who come from all different backgrounds. We're a group of former coaches, former athletes, former military members, former teachers and more. We come from several areas within the United States, Australia, Latvia and the United Kingdom.
Over the years we've made great relationships with various clubs, schools and governing bodies around the world. Our "official partners" see the work we do and see that we always do things the right way and give accurate information. Because of their trust in us, they have made us the official recruiting service to work with their athletes and help them get recruited to universities in the United States. Take a look at our partner page to see all of the organizations we partner with.
Athletes and coaches around the world trust in CCR and trust in our process because it works. Our official partners trust in us because they've seen how other recruiting services take advantage of families and manipulate the information they tell them.
We've built our reputation on always doing the right thing, being honest with athletes and telling them the truth and not just what they want to hear. We want to make sure families understand that in this process there are zero guarantees and no promises of placement, but also make sure they understand there’s a team standing behind them with a driving force to help uncover every possible opportunity.
Division I schools tend to be bigger with a large student population, many sports offered and a high amount of scholarship money to offer to athletes. Division II schools are smaller with fewer sports offered and less scholarship money available. Division III schools are even smaller and do not offer athletic scholarships at all. You can still be recruited to play at a Division III school, but they can only offer academic scholarships and not athletic scholarships.
You can learn more about the differences between NCAA divisions in our college recruiting information section.
No. If you're wanting a guarantee or to be told which school to attend, CCR is not the service for you. With as many factors as there are in the recruiting process, it would be impossible to guarantee placement at a university and to know that it would be a good fit for the athlete. On top of that, it is against NCAA rules to guarantee a spot on a team.
What we can guarantee is that we will do everything in our power to give you your best shot at being recruited, and we will be here to help you every step of the way.
A scholarship is a financial agreement that covers some or all of the costs associated with a university for one academic school year, which runs from August to May in the United States.
An athletic scholarship is given to an athlete in exchange for the athlete's participation on the university's team. Students can receive an academic scholarship, an athletic scholarship, or a combination of both academic and athletic scholarships.
The value of an athletic scholarship is completely dependent on the costs of attending the school and the amount of scholarship that is offered to the athlete.
An athlete can be offered a full scholarship which covers tuition, meals, books, housing and other fees, or they can be offered a partial scholarship that only covers some of those costs. If a partial scholarship is offered, the athlete is responsible for paying the remaining amount.
It's also possible for an athlete to receive both an athletic and academic scholarship, which combined can add up to being a full scholarship that covers all costs.
No. Just because a coach offers you a position on their team does not mean they are also offering you a scholarship. It's up to the coaches to decide who they offer scholarship money too, and sometimes they need the money for other players or sometimes they simply don't have the money to begin with.
Depending on grades and overall academic performance, it's possible an athlete gets recruited to join the team and can also receive an academic scholarship instead of an athletic scholarship.
No. Division I, Division II, NAIA and NJCAA universities have varying amounts of money they use for athletic scholarships, but Division III schools do not offer athletic scholarships at all.
Athletes who are recruited to Division III schools are still eligible to receive academic and merit-based scholarships to help cover the costs of tuition, housing, food, book and more.
Athletic scholarships are offered to athletes by the coaches, but academics can play an important part in making your college dreams come true.
Let's say a school offers you a 50% athletic scholarship, which means you are responsible for paying the remaining 50%. If you've been a good student and got a good score on the SAT, it's possible the school will offer you an academic scholarship as well. Let's say the school offers you a 30% academic scholarships. With the combined athletic and academic scholarships (50% + 30%), your responsibility now drops to only 20% of the costs. So having good grades saves you money, and depending on your situation could be what makes the school a real possibility for you.
