Hear from coaches and athletes on how Uru Sports has helped them achieve their dreams

Kwan Browne

“As a young boy growing up in Trinidad & Tobago, I was told that athletic, academic scholarships were only given to girls to go to the US, and that boys don’t have the opportunity to obtain field hockey scholarships around the world. This is false, as my story shows. There are so many players whom would love to travel the world and play in different places but there was just not the right avenue until Uru Sports. Uru Sports is a great avenue for these players to be able to be seen. Through the global platform that Uru provides, more athletes will be able to expand where their sports take them! As a coach I have been notified of some great talent looking to play in the England Premier league. Thanks Uru!”

“In 2016 played hockey in five different countries during one calendar year, from playing in Ireland, Holland, Spain, Australia and the South Africa. Not many people are given the opportunity and it will always be a year that I will remember, with a lot of life lessons learnt and personal growth happening during my epic journey around the world. The journey was far from smooth and easy though- navigating contracts and finding out what it would be like when arriving was difficult. I learned about Uru Sports and since have received multiple offers to choose between.  I have connected with athletes who have played there previously and am feeling more educated when making a decision of which team to join.  Thank you Uru!”

“I really want to play strong hockey and study in the USA. Uru Sports connected me with universities and some current players to talk to about their experience playing there. I had no idea how to find out information about the leagues there or how to get connected. It’s great that Uru Sports supplied me with these connections as well as information on the unique hockey system of the US. All starting with the help of Uru, a trip was organized where I visited five different university programs all for free and all the way from Tasmania! That trip was very educational and I’m very excited that I’ve seen the campus’s and been able to make an educated decision on where I’ll be getting my undergraduate degree for the next four years… University of Iowa!”

“Well I was really not ready to put down my stick just yet and was dying to experience travel and something new! So I used the Urū Sports app to reach out to teams in Australia. It was my communication platform with each of these organizations, resulting in me finding my fit. In the Urū platform I discussed different leagues and locations to compete in, season dates and structures, the important things to look for in a club, and many more vital aspects to consider when going abroad. I am on my way to Australia to play for the Reds, a premier level club in Perth and I have contacts of some people to possibly work for, have coffee with… I couldn’t be more excited!”

“I have been having the best time playing club hockey in Australia and now I am looking to play top-level club hockey in England next season. I have used Uru Sports’s network and services to connect me with both club teams and their current players. Thanks to Urū, I have received background information on how the National League in England works which is nice so that I can get an idea of what I’m actually getting into. The connections received have been very helpful and I’m really looking forward to going next month! My goals are to become a stronger player as well as perfect my English J Leicester HC here I come.  Thank you Uru”

“Urū Sports is fantastic. It gives the opportunity for a coach to go to one location to see a great amount of quality players, where you can get a lot of history about them, get their background, you can see their playing ability through the video footage and you have access to a community straight away in a very organized environment, making coaches lives a lot easier. We have found multiple great potential athletes through Uru”

“The Urū Sports network has been hugely beneficial to our club and its preparations for the coming season. Thanks to Urū, Westside Wolves has been able to broaden its search and reach, for proven, high quality talent, which has ultimately resulted in us boosting our playing roster. Through our affiliation with Urū Sports, we have beaten other competition for players, via our relationship with the network and level of comfort it provides for players and clubs alike. The only reason I’m hesitant to recommend Urū, is in case our competitors catch on!”
