Brazilian company is chosen for unprecedented partnership with the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics
Kansas City, Mo. – The NAIA has partnered with 2SV as their “Official Brazilian Recruiting Partner.” Currently, the NAIA has three official partners in the world: The UK, China and now, Brazil. In recent years there has been a significant growth of Brazilian athletes who are willing to go to the U.S. intending not to choose between a sports career or a college education. The main goal of these young people is to use their athletic abilities in sport to build a future with more possibilities.
For 15 years in the market, 2SV Sports & Education, a Brazilian company focused in sports and academic exchange programs seeking scholarships in the U.S., helps to make this dream come true. 2SV was chosen by the NAIA to establish a unique partnership to bring athletes, of all sports, to the American university leagues.
SILVEIRA ON THE IMPORTANCE OF PARTNERSHIP AND WHAT IT REPRESENTS
"We are very proud to announce the partnership with NAIA and reinforce that it is the result of 15 years of work transforming the lives of various youths who dream of treading the way study and sport at a high level. This partnership will further help parents gain access to important details before sending their child to study abroad," said 2SV, CEO Ricardo Silveira.
Each year, more than 70,000 NAIA-registered student-athletes have the opportunity to play college sports, supported by over $600 million in scholarships, and compete for a seat in one of the 26+ national tournaments.
NAIA ON THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING AN OFFICIAL REPRESENTATIVE IN BRAZIL
“2SV has an excellent reputation for helping international student-athletes successfully navigate the college recruitment process,” said NAIA President and CEO Jim Carr. “We’re excited to have a partner in Brazil that offers such customized guidance, ensuring a positive experience for student-athletes.”
“2SV is a premier organization that positively impacts the lives of so many Brazilian students. 2SV makes navigating the complexities of pursuing the dream of playing college sports in the U.S. a possibility,” said Leah McCormak VP of Eligibility Services.
Another concern of the association is gender equality. NAIA ensures that equitable distribution of sporting and resource opportunities. That is, opportunities and enrollments are proportionate and available to men and women, where no student-athlete, coach or coordinator is discriminated against in any way within the sports programs offered.
