Here are some testimonials from players and parents we have worked with in pervious years. We are proud to have helped so many athletes achieve their dreams of playing college sport in the USA.

"Right from the start my experience with Y.D.P were very professional, the time they committed to make sure I was ready for the states was exceptional. Frequent zoom calls with Josh or coaches from different areas of America is a part of my journey I will never forget. Josh and Y.D.P made the life changing experience seem like the perfect choice for me with no hesitation. They were always there to answer any questions I had before and after coming out to the U.S. I loved working with Y.D.P and would recommend them any young athlete chasing a new opportunity."

"I would like to thank YDP USA for helping me with my move out to the USA to continue playing football. I’d like to mainly thank Josh, he was the most helpful and always gave advice on what would be the best place for me and I’m glad I listened  to the advice given because I really enjoy being a student-athlete at Eckerd. I’d also like to thank him for helping us out with all the paperwork when my mom and I were unsure what to do"

"For sure one of the best decisions I’ve ever made so thanks to you (Josh) and all the guys with YDP. I have been to Costa Rica on a pre season tour and have been playing football at a really high level during the regular season. I also go to beach regularly from March onwards which seems crazy with me being from Manchester!"

"The company was a great help in order to put me in front of the right coaches and school in order to further my football career and school education, I can’t speak highly enough of the group helping me with any questions and helping me through the whole process from start to finish. If you’re interested in coming over to America don’t look past YDP USA."

James Holmes

"Josh was really approachable and helped me a lot to be able to achieve my dream in moving to the US to play football. He gave great guidance and checks in regularly to see my progress. Would definitely recommend using YDP to help you through a scholarship journey!"

Charlie Cooper

Wesson, Mississippi

"From start to finish, Josh at YDP was helpful and efficient; making the process of finding a suitable Uni in the USA a pretty easy process. He was always at the end of the phone if we needed any assistance with any of the form filling or Visa applications etc. One of the more competitively priced companies too. Thanks Josh!"

"My son has just started his second year at OCU following a fabulous year joining the university last July on a soccer scholarship. He secured this following the help and support from YDP. Josh Carpenter was his contact and he helped secure this position after help with the application process. Josh even visited him during his first season which was great. He keeps in touch with Oliver. Our experience with YDP was definately a positive one and can recommend."

"After a terrible experience with another company, we were introduced to Josh & YDP through someone who was already signed up. We were obviously cautious but we needn’t have been. Josh was understanding, reassuring & on the ball from day 1. He stayed in touch, promoted our son well & spent time talking through the available options, including talking through the offers received.
Thanks to Josh & YDP our son is now loving college life in Illinois.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend YDP."

"Met josh at a match for my school, he was really helpful throughout all stages of the process from getting me in touch with lots of great colleges to getting my visa. Despite starting the process really late, josh was a huge help in getting me out to America in time, we would highly recommend YDP to anyone searching for a US scholarship."
