Coach X Placement Agency was founded in 2013 to help student-athletes and their families to connect to high school, prep school and college coaches in America and Canada. The north american recruiting process is very different than Europe and often confusing for many families and student athletes. Our team of former players, coaches, scouts and athletic directors adding to our network of many American and Canadian college coaches and partners allows our placement agency to prepared and promote student athletes to some of the best schools in north America. Our agency work directly with the main american leagues (NJCAA, NAIA, NCAA, CEGEP…) and federations in order to offer the best opportunities in the sport world.


To ensure the best possible follow-up, COACH X work in partnership with numerous coaches, recruiters, schools and sports structures in Europe and north America. This support makes it possible to receive individual guidance and advice based on the academic profile, athletic abilities and ambition of each student athlete. Each year, we help young passionate athlete and their families find their way academically and/or professionally. We are proud to be able to count among our customers:

● Student athletes to whom we have found schools allowing them to link academics and sport

● (Future) Coaches, who thanks to our advice were able to find the right organizations as well as club teams in France and north America

● Sports fans who did not have the talent or the will to become high-level players but who now follow or have followed training courses in sports, medicine, physiotherapy, management, business, marketing and others areas in order to be able to work in the sports field.


Our athletes are not regular athletes, they are real student-athletes ready to be an asset for any school in America and this is how you can know that we are different from any other European placement agency:
