Founder & President - University Sports Program
Thomas Anderson started University Sports Program (USP) when he moved from his natal country Venezuela to the United States, 20 years ago. Today, the company is internationally recognized as one of the leading college placement and coaching firms in the world.
So, how did a Venezuelan guy with no experience making business in United States create this global powerhouse? He did it through hard work, determination and a well- organized approach that leads students-athletes from all around the world to receive athletic scholarships to study in colleges in the USA.
Thomas Anderson is a former National Tennis Champion, who studied Business Administration at New Mexico State University thanks to a tennis scholarship, experience that changed positively his life 360 degrees.
Perhaps, due in part to his wish to offer others the same wonderful opportunity he had, Thomas’s ability to generate interest from college coaches to each one of his clients led him to be recognized as “The College Placement Guru”.
Until now, Thomas has placed close to 1,100 International and National students-athletes in American colleges generating over 10.0 million dollars in athletic and academic scholarships.
During all these 20 years, Thomas has been invited to share his knowledge, advice and systems in college placement in multiple seminars around the world. The content of his events are filled with simple and easy ways to get athletic scholarships in the United States.
Despite the demand for his services, Thomas realized that personal consulting and seminars was not ONLY the answer. He wanted parents and student-athletes to implement by themselves the strategies he taught.
It was then that Mr. Anderson expanded his company, creating a ladder of products that allows more and different targets of clients to benefits from his services.
He wrote one of the best-selling books in college recruiting: “7 Steps to Win a College Athletic Scholarship” designed forathletes and parents; he also created the USP Conferences, Showcases & Try-Outs, College Scholarship Coaching and the College Placement programs.
Today, University Sports Program operates in many countries in South and Central America, Europe, Asia and Africa, through a selected group of scouts and agents.
Using the coaching strategies that have helped hundreds of young students-athletes to fulfill their dreams to play their sports and study in College, Thomas Anderson and his executive team helped lead University Sports Program to some of its most profitable and best years ever…..in the face of challenging economic conditions.
Today, Thomas Anderson’s official title is Founder and President of University Sports Program, and he and his team are taking “college placement education” to new, more innovative and effective levels.
The USP team of agents, coaches and scouts are former college and professional athletes with many years of experience working in sports and education. They all have one common attribute: Their love for sports and helping others succeed in life. Under this philosophy, each team member dedicates all its efforts in making sure we provide a professional and individualized service to all USP clients.
