'It is my personal belief that the American Collegiate System still remains the best tertiary educational option for any Student-Athlete from just about every country in the world. I say this because not only does it allow the Athlete to pursue Academic ambitions while still training and competing, it allows him/her to do so at the highest level.
I first met Rick Paine in 1993 when I arrived in Lincoln, Nebraska to take up my swimming scholarship. After his college coaching career Rick formed American College Connection (ACC), the premier College Recruitment agency in the USA.
Since working with ACC from 2003 I have found Rick and his team to be the consummate professionals always going the extra mile to ensure the swimmers are well looked after both during the recruitment process right through until the day they graduate. Without a doubt ACC will be the best investment you can make for your child with a dream to swim and study in the USA. Close to a hundred South African swimmers have successfully worked through ACC with the last 10 South African swimmers who have signed or committed to Universities via ACC earning scholarships averaging nearly a quarter of a million dollars. I am proud to be associated with ACC and fully endorse their services with the highest recommendation.'
