Creating opportunities. Changing lives. 

Our Game-Changer initiative creates life-changing opportunities for talented young athletes to secure  scholarships to compete in US college sports while furthering their education.


While many talented athletes are eligible to study and play college sport in the US, the costs of recruitment companies are often out of reach for a lot of families. Through our partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation we are able to level the playing field and provide equal opportunities for all talented athletes to secure a scholarship irrespective of their socio-economic background.  

Underpinned by our core purposes of promoting equality, equal opportunity and advancing education this socially-driven program empowers athletes with the tools and knowledge to explore, pursue and secure scholarship funding to study and play sport at an American college or university. Central to the success of this initiative, we are also able to offer athletes and their families significant subsidies on the standard costs associated with pursuing a scholarship.


This initiative makes a real difference to the lives of young Australians by helping them secure funding that largely covers the cost of their tertiary education while providing life experiences that positively shape their character and establish a strong foundation for the future.
