LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT

Jeff Duva - Founder & President
The CSA story really began in 1981 when I started the nation's first ever recruiting service designed to help high school athletes receive athletic scholarships for college. Today, CSA is recognized as the nation's largest and most respected name in the world of college recruiting, having helped thousands of student-athletes over the past 20 years fulfill their dreams of competing in the exciting world of college athletics.
Is Buying a Franchise Right For You?... CONTINUE

There are few things in life that are more personally rewarding than following your dreams. Dreams help drive our vision for the future and breathe purpose into our lives. The pursuit of my dreams as a young man helped me achieve an athletic scholarship and All-American honors as a college football player, followed by a coaching career on the collegiate level.

My personal experiences as both a college athlete and college coach inspired me to start a company that could help student-athletes across the country fulfill their dreams of participating in college athletics. Today, I am proud to say, my vision of helping qualified student-athletes has grown into an entire industry... an industry that has been pioneered and led by CSA every step of the way.

The formula for the ongoing success of our company lies in the commitment to excellence that CSA has in providing our customers with outstanding service, while adhering to the core values of honesty, integrity, trust and respect. If you love sports, enjoy helping others achieve their dreams, are a self-starter and want to control your own destiny, this may be the opportunity you have been looking for.

Is Buying a Franchise Right For You?

See our ad in Entrepreneur Magazine!
Franchise Growth is Staggering in U.S. Economy
  In 2000, sales by franchises accounted for more than 40 percent of sales by all U.S. businesses. Analysts estimated that last year, franchises accounted for more than $1 trillion in annual U.S. retail sales and that there were 320,000 franchised small businesses in 75 industries. Industry analysts estimated that franchising employs more than 8 million people and that a new franchise opens up every 8 minutes somewhere in the U.S. Also, approximately 1 out of every 12 retail businesses is a franchised business. (Statistics provided by the International Franchise Association)
Franchising has Higher Success Rate
  Research has shown that within the first five years of starting a new business, 9 out of 10 franchises continue to operate, while 8 out of 10 privately operated start-up business fail. There's no secret that buying a franchise greatly reduces the risk of a new business owner as compared to starting a business on your own.

“CSA has been a dream business for me.  Working in the world of high school and college athletics and helping young athletes reach their college goals is a very exciting and rewarding business to be involved with.  My franchise ownership has far exceeded what my expectations were going into the business both on a financial basis and the personal satisfaction I receive from being a CSA Regional Scouting Director!”

“Joining the CSA-PrepStar team and becoming a franchise owner was an easy decision for me.  CSA has provided me a way to enhance my passion for sports related activities and to work closely with young men and women who also share my passion for sports.  Helping a young student-athlete achieve their dream of competing at the collegiate level along with furthering their education is an extremely gratifying and meaningful way to stay connected to the sporting community.  The financial rewards of owning a CSA-PrepStar franchise has also been one of the best investments I have ever made.”

“Caitlin gave a verbal commitment last night to Arkansas University for a 4 year full-ride track and field scholarship. She absolutely loves the school and I can say for sure, that it would not have been on our radar at all. Arkansas was one of the schools recruiting her, that received their info on Caitlin from you. Her best scholarship offers all came from schools who received profiles from you. The fee we paid CSA has turned into an $80,000 gift to our family. Thank you so much. “

"Before I purchased my CSA franchise I had considered some other companies that compete with CSA, but there is no doubt in my mind that I joined the winning team. CSA is a very well run and professional organization that has mountains of credibility in the recruiting world. PREPSTAR magazine is by far the best and most recognized recruiting publication in the country and because of CSA's position as the #1 recruiting organization of its kind, I have been able to build a very successful business as a CSA franchise owner. From my initial training to the ongoing support and service from the home office, my experience with CSA has been nothing but positive and one of the best decisions I have ever made."

"When I found the CSA/PrepStar business opportunity, I was looking for a way that I could effectively help high school and junior college student/athletes fulfill their collegiate dreams and goals. I had seen many excellent young men and women, here in the rural areas of Northern California, go unnoticed because of lack of exposure. CSA/PrepStar gave me the tools necessary to help these student/athletes get the exposure they needed to fulfill their collegiate dreams. With CSA/PrepStar, I believe I am able to help make a difference in young people lives."

Joining the CSA PrepStar team and becoming a franchise owner was an easy decision for me. CSA has provided me with a way to enhance my passion for sports related activities and to work closely with young adults who also share my passion for sports. Helping a young student-athlete achieve their dream of competing at the collegiate level along with furthering their education is an extremely gratifying and meaningful way to not only stay connected to the sporting community, but also to work with individuals who otherwise probably wouldn't have had an opportunity to further their sporting career.
Tom Franco, CSA Franchise Owner
Los Angeles, CA


"I have now been with CSA for nearly four years as both a customer and franchise owner. I was originally introduced to CSA when my oldest son TJ was a senior in high school and wasn't receiving the exposure we felt he needed and deserved as a legitimate D-1 baseball prospect. After enrolling TJ in the CSA exposure program we received over 90 letters from colleges nationwide, and numerous scholarship offers followed. I was so impressed by CSA's professionalism and the great results we received from using the service, I decided to join the CSA team as a franchise owner and I have finally found my niche! CSA has provided me with a way to make an excellent income, and I am able to do it in a business that I love The support, professionalism and credibility of CSA have helped make my business a huge personal and financial success."

"CSA gave me an opportunity to run my own business in a field that I love. Now I look forward to each day and the challenges that lie ahead, with a measure of control over my future. It's a great feeling to win the trust of a family and then be able to help their child achieve success as a college student-athlete. I know I have been able to make a difference in the lives of these kids, and their parents know they made a great investment toward their child's education. By following the CSA formula, communicating regularly with the head office, and working hard, my franchise purchase has paid off well."
