What is the right time to register myself?

You can register with Slamstox at any time during the year. Some athletes start the trial in December, others in March.

In general, the sooner you start the process, the better. There are simply more places available in teams, so you have a better chance of your dream place! For example, you may have a better chance of a good scholarship when you start your process when you are in HAVO 4 or VWO 5 than when you start the process when you are in your final exam year. However, this is generally the case, it has also often happened that athletes also end up at top universities within an accelerated process.

What happens after registering with Slamstox?

After registering with Slamstox, we invite you and your parents for a meeting at our office in Eindhoven. During this conversation we want to get to know you as well as possible.

The step to go to the USA is a big one, which is why it is important for us to know exactly what your ambitions, goals and wishes are. If you decide to start the America adventure with us, we will get started right away. We will then give you access to the Slamstox App, make a personal action plan and contact our network in the USA.

How long does the process take?

Some athletes start three years in advance, others three months. In principle, the earlier you start, the more places in college teams are available and the more time you have to prepare everything properly. In the USA, the admissions committees of universities look at your high school grades for the last four years, so that actually starts in HAVO 2 or VWO 3.

Are you thinking about leaving to the USA but are you not sure when to start the process? Please contact us!

Who decides about my scholarship?

For academic scholarships, the university admissions committee decides whether you will receive a scholarship. Whether you get a sports scholarship is entirely up to the coaches of the sports teams. Slamstox presents you as best as possible with all coaches and helps you negotiate the scholarship amount.

How does contact with coaches and universities go?

After we have made a selection of universities that match your profile, requirements and wishes, it is time to contact the college coaches. We send each coach a personal email containing the most important information about you.

This includes your best results and / or personal records, your ranking, your grade average at school and scores of the entrance tests. For some sports, a recruiting video is shown in which you show your skills.

What if I decide not to go to America?

When you start the Slamstox process you can stop at any time. Every situation is different and we would like to help you in the best way possible. The best way to do this is by getting in contact with us and to discuss your situation to have the best solution for you personally.

Are you injured or did you not pass you final high school exam for example, then we will look for the best possible solution.
