About Us

Play Atlantic was formed in 2003 by a group of former college players and coaches who having been through the recruiting process as players themselves, and then working on the other side of the system as coaches, decided to form an organisation that not only made it as easy as possible for the players, but was also considerate of the college coaches.

Since 2003 our team of professionals have helped hundreds of student-athletes from around the World fulfill their dream of playing college sport, helping them study and compete at a college that was the right fit for them, saving them thousands in the process.

Meet the Team:
