Four Reasons to Play College Sports in the U.S.

The university system in the U.S. is currently one of the most popular destinations in the world for higher education. In fact, upwards of 500,000 of all international students choose the U.S. as their destination of study each year, making up around 30% of the international student population worldwide. If you are considering becoming a professional sports player, then majoring in your sport at a reputable U.S. college or university could be the best first step to take towards achieving this dream. We’ve listed some of the main reasons why sporting programs are so popular in the U.S.

#1. Chance to Win a Scholarship

If you are really good at your chosen sport, there’s the chance that you’ll be able to win a scholarship to college and get your degree without the need to worry about tuition fees or borrowing student loans. On a scholarship program, you’ll be offered a fully or partly paid place on the program, allowing you to not only practice the sport that you’re majoring in but also choose from a variety of other secondary subjects to eventually earn your college degree. Along with that, becas deportivas, or sports scholarships, allow you to play competitively and are one of the best ways of becoming a competitive sports player since there’ll be many chances for you to be spotted and noticed by professional coaches and teams.

#2. College Sports is Huge

In the U.S., college sports are a huge business, with millions of dollars both invested into it and accumulated from it each year from ticket sales and merchandise by the NCAA, to name just a couple of ways in which this industry makes money. If you are hoping to play football or basketball whilst at college, for example, then these games are often broadcast to a worldwide audience, making it the perfect choice for anybody who’s really serious about their sport and wants to gain as much exposure as possible.

#3. World-Class Facilities

Another main reason why more and more international students are coming to study sports in the U.S. is that there are so many awesome, world-class facilities to choose from. Since college sports are such a big deal, you can bet that any college that takes their sporting teams seriously will also invest in state of the art gyms, sporting pitches, equipment, and even highly-trained, experienced coaches to ensure that students are given everything that they need to perform at their very best.

#4. Excellent Choice:

When it comes to the choice that students have in the U.S., universities in other countries simply don’t compare. Students at U.S. institutions have a massive array of choices and you can base your final decision on where to study on much more than their quality of sports education; there are so many diverse, different universities to choose from, giving everybody a chance to attend their perfect school.
Are you thinking of taking a sports scholarship and playing college sports in the U.S.? We’d love to hear from you in the comments.

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
