¿ Cómo se consigue una beca para estudiar en EEUU?

Es un proceso que toma tiempo. No se puede conseguir beca de un día para otro. La búsqueda se debería empezar cuando uno comienza la secundaria. La clave es comenzar a crear relaciones con los directores técnicos de diferentes universidades. (Comenzar a cuidar tu imagen personal, Facebook, instagram, gorjeo, etcétera) Ser un deportista a nivel universitario en Estados Unidos, significa ser un deportista de alto rendimiento con una conducta de élite.

Los directores técnicos tienen sus equipos de reclutamiento que están constantemente activos en las redes sociales. Como en el fútbol profesional los caza talentos se dedican a perseguir a las futuras estrellas, los directores técnicos universitarios están buscando buenos deportistas y además buenos estudiantes.

La manera del proceso de reclutamiento de deportistas comienza con el contacto directo entre los directores técnicos y el deportista, o entre técnicos y sus referencias, sus contactos a nivel global. Los pasos a seguir para conseguir una beca deportiva son los siguientes:

  1. El deportista debe mandar un correo con sus datos y sus videos ( VÍDEO )
  2. EL deportista debe tener 3 cartas de recomendaciones de profesores, directores técnicos o mentores
  3. El deportista Boliviano tiene que tomar el TOEFL para estar listo y mandar su documentación
  4. El SAT es otro requisito de examen de ingreso para universidades de la NCAA división 1 y 2
  5. Al tener toda la documentación es bueno armar un curriculum deportivo y académico para adjuntarle al correo electrónico que se enviará a diferentes directores técnicos

Este proceso es el que todo deportista que desea una beca debe realizar anticipadamente. Los deportistas que buscan las oportunidades dos años antes de salir bachiller son más expuestos a ganar una beca deportiva.

Nosotros te ayudamos en este proceso a guiarte detalladamente y hacerte sentir confiado en conseguir una beca deportiva. También te invitamos a una red de deportistas y directores técnicos para contactar y buscar un cupo en las diferentes universidades de Estados Unidos.

Adapt or die above 13,000 feet sea level in Potosí, Bolivia

“Welcome to Alcantari” reads the sign at the airport in Sucre, one of the most beautiful cities in Bolivia, and the capital of our country. We are on our way to Potosí. The diverse and the dynamic world of football is full of upheavals. This world reminds me of my high school years at St Benedict’s Preparatory School in Newark, New Jersey, also known to the natives as “The Brick City. St. Benedict’s Prep is the only school that never closes in the winter. Even if you get ten inches of snow, the school is open and students are expected to attend.

Difficulties of climate and transportation, and tightschedules are experiences I had both as high school athlete in Newark, New Jersey and now as professional soccer in Bolivia. My high school’s slogan “Benedict’s Hates a Quitter” is constantly on my mind as I see my teammates out of breath after sprinting in stadiums located 13,400 feet above sea level. The low oxygen levels at high altitude cities causes even goalkeepers to experience unique difficultiesthe ball moves faster and it bounces differently. Ithe United States, there are 10 inches of snow and you have to wake up at 4 am so you do not miss the train. Here in Bolivia, players have to go out on the field and compete at almost 13,500 feet above sea level.

Life is about competing to be the best and never quitting. Bolivian professional football players have prepared themselves for adaptation to any situation. At Saint Benedict’s, the monks who run the school are training their students from a young age to adapt to change as wellFor the training I received at St Benedict’s, I always say,“Thank you to the monks at the monastery who tell the young students at the hive to keep reading and believing the words imprinted in that iconic sign: Benedict’s Hates a Quitter’”.

A professional team from Santa Cruz, has to travel 40 minutes by plane to Sucre and 3 hours by bus to arrive at Potosí to play a game at 7 pm. Most of the players in Bolivia are hard workers who are entirely devoted to soccer, despite the fact that they are in a country where soccer players are unprotected. There is a lack of legal and financial protection, no health insurance, and salaries are paid whenever club presidents say so. When times get difficult or when we are three months behind on our salary, sometimes, in the locker rooms I hear guys messing around and saying, “I should have listened to my mom! I should have gone to school and studied.”

Marcelo Bielsa said, “to be a great soccer player, first you need to be a great person.” To play at the highest stadium of the world, first you need to be mentally prepared and second you should never miss one day of school. Perhaps it is time for you to email or call admission at Saint Benedict’s Preparatory School.
