Founded by friends and former college athletes – Reid Meyer, Nikki Perez, and Justin Ullestad – Athletes to Athletes is all about disrupting the college recruiting and selection process through education and empowerment.
“As former student-athletes, we understand how difficult the recruiting journey can be and how important your sport is to your college decision. It was a huge part of our decisions too. But the reality is that your sport doesn’t define your college experience by itself,” explains company founder, Reid Meyer.
Athletes to Athletes was created to help the next generation of student-athletes pursue the collegiate program that best fits their long-term career and life goals.
“College athletics can be a gateway to massive opportunities. For the very select few, it can be an opportunity to play professional sports. For everyone else, it means a solid educational and networking foundation that will provide for you the rest of your life. We know it’s tough to look beyond your sport when considering college programs, but we also know it’s just as important for you to find satisfaction academically, personally, and financially.”
A holistic program that truly encompasses the recruiting experience
“The overall college admissions experience is different for everyone. Unlike other advising programs, we reject the idea of a ‘one size fits all’ approach.”
“We educate you about the universal rules and requirements of college recruiting for all associations, including the NCAA, NJCAA, and NAIA, and then focus on your personal situation to both empower you and maximize your recruiting opportunities,” continues Reid.
Athletes to Athletes leverages the first-hand experience of former college athletes to offer one-on-one advising to high school athletes who have interest in playing sports at the next level.
“Our advisors help future student-athletes navigate the college application and recruitment process, arming them with the tools to grab the attention of college coaches, while providing a holistic method to evaluate schools.”
“Selecting the right college program is about more than just athletic talent. It’s about considering your academics, finances, and mental health. After all, it’s potentially a four-year decision, so you want to do it right,” adds Reid.
Athletes to Athletes encourages all prospective student-athletes to sign up for a free one-on-one introductory session with an advisor to see if this program is right for them – no commitment, fees, pressure, or obligation.
“We know that being an athlete is only one aspect of what makes you, you. That’s why our advisors work hard to help you find a college where you can succeed both on and off the field. No matter how far your athletic career takes you, there will be an ending to that story. We want to ensure you’re prepared to dive into the next chapter with excitement and confidence.”
“In the words of program graduate Cale P, ‘If you really want to be a college athlete and be confident when you commit to a college program, then Athletes to Athletes is the place for you.’,” concludes Reid.
Athletes to Athletes is a holistic program advisory service founded by friends and former college athletes – Reid Meyer, Nikki Perez, and Justin Ullestad – to empower the next generation of student-athletes. Athletes to Athletes is passionate about disrupting the college recruiting and selection process and helping high school student-athletes and their parents to research, identify, and apply to college programs that best fit their needs, on and off the field.
