To ensure the best possible follow-up, COACH X works in partnership with numerous coaches, recruiters, schools and sports structures in France, Europe and the USA. This support will allow us to provide individualised guidance based on the profile, academic record, abilities and ambition of each student/athlete.

Every year we help young people who are passionate about football to find their way academically and/or professionally.

We are proud to be able to count among our clients:

  • Students/athletes to whom we have found structures that allow them to combine school and basketball

  • (Future) coaches who, thanks to our advice, have been able to find training organisations and host organisations in France and the USA

  • Football enthusiasts who did not have the talent or the will to become high level players but who now follow or have followed training courses as sports teachers, doctors, physiotherapists, managers, businessmen, marketers and others in order to be able to work in the field of sports and particularly basketball.



What could be more rewarding than to be able to use your passion to build your future and obtain a university degree?

Who doesn't wish to be able to evolve in these magnificent school and sports facilities? Who doesn't dream of having between 4 and 15 coaches ready to make you work every day to become the best you can be? And all this with the opportunity to finish with a diploma guaranteeing you a professional future!

Many Europeans try the adventure every year, but not all of them can boast of a positive experience.

Many leave in pitiful conditions, in the middle of a completely different environment, ending up having to pay unexpected amounts of money at the start and having no option but to return home. It is often necessary to talk to the right people in order to understand if the game is worth the candle. Many athletes think that the US will turn them into a "super player and future pro", but the reality is often quite different. A lot of young people who are badly advised let go of a comfortable situation (good school, training centre, pro hopefuls) without having weighed the pros and cons beforehand. Not all Europeans come back from the USA with a pro basketball contract, it depends first of all on the athlete's profile, but all should have the opportunity to live a unique cultural experience that can be useful in the short, medium or long term.
