Athletics Consulting

A-List UK offers a highly informative and popular service for students (and their parents) looking to pursue a sport at the collegiate level in the US.  Our approach is to provide assistance in managing the initial contact, recruiting, scholarship and admissions processes and to describe what competing at the college level actually entails.  We will not represent or recommend you to universities but rather empower you with the information to market yourself and make your own decisions with our guidance.  This has been a popular, cost-effective and successful approach with both clients and coaches. 

Who for?
  • Parents, coaches and organisations unsure how to support and advise their child/player
  • Elite level students targeting athletic scholarships at US universities
  • Students with a sporting interest that can improve their application to US universities
  • Students looking to maintain or explore extra-curricular activities at US universities

Rachel Booth is A-List UK's Athletics Consultant. After graduating as a student-athlete in cross country from Northwestern University, Rachel took the opportunity to finish out her NCAA collegiate eligibility and ran Track and Field at Florida State University while pursuing a Masters in Sports Administration.

While at Florida State University, Rachel qualified for the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships for the 5000m run and the Outdoor Championships in the 10000m run.

Rachel has coached at the collegiate level at both Northwestern University and the University of the Pacific. Additionally, she has run professionally and competed in the 2012 USA Olympic Marathon Trials setting a personal best time of 2:37:59.

"I can't recommend A-List enough. You really feel that you can use as much or as little from what they offer to suit your needs. I will certainly be using them for my other two children!"
