Elite-Athletes is a private structure created in 2010, and unique partner of the French Football Federation since 2014, under the name FFFusa. Our detections aim to give the opportunity to young players coming from professional or amateur clubs, to combine soccer and studies in American universities.
All our staff has a perfect knowledge of the university system having been themselves former student-athletes graduated in the United States.
Each player, regardless of his athletic level, will be considered and guided by our team in order to make his academic project concrete, soccer not being the only important criteria. A certain level of English is also required, determined by passing the TOEFL or Duolingo.
Elite-Athletes is responsible for the placement of over 900 players in American universities, most of them coming directly from our scouting events, which makes these events unique in France in terms of concrete opportunities for all players.
You will have access to changing rooms at each site and we will provide you with FFFusa jerseys. Each player will have a consistent and equal playing time regardless of the position and level. The games will be filmed by us, and will be sent back to you individually when we return.
Every year in March, our annual showcase takes place in Clairefontaine, where the best players selected by our staff during the scouting will have the opportunity to participate in a tournament in front of several dozen American college coaches who will have made the trip for the occasion.
A placement fee will be due IF AND ONLY IF the youngster accepts a scholarship offer and goes to the USA to a university.
