Client Testimonial from Christoph:

"I learned about SSUSA from a friend who spoke highly of their services. I was unsure of how to achieve my goal of playing soccer in the US before connecting with Lyle. However, after a few meetings, we developed a plan and created a professional highlight video. With their guidance, I was able to speak with various universities. Fast forward a year, and I have completed my first season playing Division 1 soccer at Radford University. Recently, I decided to transfer, and once again, SSUSA provided exceptional support as I searched for new opportunities, and found a once in a lifetime opportunity at Ivy-League school, Columbia University in New York City. Thank you to Lyle and Alex for everything; I can't wait to continue working with them."
