The skyrocketing cost of a college education is enough to send parents and students into a panic. With expenses escalating an estimated 6.5% a year, the average 4-year degree could cost over $80,000 for a student entering in 2009. For private universities this amount might well exceed $161,000. While grants and academic scholarships are hard to come by and loans must be repaid, the sports scholarship is one often-overlooked solution. The variety of sports in which scholarships are awarded is surprising -- 34 sports from archery to wrestling -- with many yielding even greater opportunities for women than ever before.

How to Win A Sports Scholarship is based on the authors' own personal experiences and extensive research, including interviews with over 1,000 college coaches and athletic directors, student-athletes and their parents, high school coaches and guidance counselors, and financial aid advisors. Since 1992, the authors have also held seminars to teach their system to eager student-athletes and parents.
