The founder of ESC, Doc Cassama, came to Canada as a student athlete from Sweden and entered the University of Calgary in the Faculty of Arts as a football athlete. He is living proof of how the Canadian post-secondary route can be successful for athletes wishing to pursue higher level sport. Doc graduated from the University of Calgary and because of his excellence in sport and his education, received multiple offers to pursue professional football in both the Canadian football league (CFL) and the National football league (USA).
The director of Student Integration, Sandra Wigg, has a decade of experience dealing specifically with student athlete placement, support and retention in multiple Canadian Universities. She understands the challenges of athlete recruitment, admission, academic performance and the personal demands high level athletes experience in the post-secondary forum.
HOW DO WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR STUDENT ATHLETES?
By applying through the ESC website and identifying yourself as an athlete, we can expose you to our extensive
network of coaches across Canada in all sports. This is a proven entity as we have already placed hundreds
of student athletes and supported their efforts in achieving their goals academically and athletically.
The understanding of the balance and support required for student athletes is where we really shine because
we get it; we are experienced experts managing student athletes.
Check the athlete box and identify your sport, so that you can provide another unique piece of information that will show who you are. You may not think you can play at the university level however, identifying your skill set allows universities to see your additional potential and possibly offer you a scholarship.
It is that easy . . .
