FirstPoint USA has been helping potential sports stars of the future gain places at American Universities for many years now. Since 2001, we have secured scholarships for over 7,000 athletes; securing over $150 million in scholarship awards on their behalf in the process.
The first step in your journey to secure a field hockey scholarship is to attend one of our 'Field Hockey Assessment & Presentation' days.
We are currently holding assessment days for potential scholarship athletes to come along and show us their skills. If you are interested in attending a Field Hockey Assessment Day, you first need to apply below. Once we've received your application, we will send you written confirmation and further information about the scholarship process in general.

One unique aspect of the FirstPoint Soccer Assessments is the presentation for students and parents to learn about American college sport, the level of competition, how soccer scholarships work, academic and soccer requirements and what the student-athlete experience looks like.
To allow participants and coaches to make the most of the Soccer Assessment, parents and visitors will be able to attend the presentation, watch the assessment taking place and meet with members of the FirstPoint staff to ask questions and learn more about what the opportunity involves.
