Cardinal Sports Management
Cardinal Sports was established in 1994 to provide services to student-athletes interested in pursuing an athletic scholarship or financial aid package to a post-secondary institution in the United States and Canada. Over the years Cardinal Sports has continuously refined the programs and services it provides to meet the changing needs of athletic programs and academic institutions. We have also expanded the range of clients to which we provide services to include sports leagues, teams and associations. Cardinal Sports prides itself on being the largest recruiting firm in the sport of hockey but continues to expand into other sports by retaining sport specific experts to assist in the talent identification and recruiting process. With offices in Toronto and representatives throughout the United States and Canada, Cardinal Sports continues to expand its reach to identify the most qualified student-athletes to compete at the collegiate level.
Cardinal Sports' mission relating to student-athletes is simple; "Provide student-athletes with the promotional support and career guidance required to achieve their athletic and academic goals."
Cardinal Sports' mission with respect to servicing leagues, teams and associations is clear; "Work in cooperation with the goals of the organization by providing valuable and innovative solutions to advance the development of all participants."
Cardinal Sports is proud of the more than 2000 student-athletes it has assisted in securing scholarships and financial aid packages since its inception. We are equally as proud of the success many of our affiliated leagues, teams and associations have experienced as a result of our association. With a success rate of more than 90% with individual clients and equally impressive accomplishments with organizations, Cardinal Sports is confident it can provide the necessary services to assist you or your organization in reaching all your athletic and academic objectives.
