Radoslav Popov & Dimitar Kalchev 


Popov&Kalchev Recruitment Agency is the very first Bulgarian organization, providing vital assistance to young athletes in their pursuit of sports and academic future in the United States of America. 
       Our main purpose is to use our experience and connections, which we gained through and after our years in the States, to help promising young athletes, with a stable academic background, find the right university that can help them reach their dreams and develop their full potential.
       Our connections spread across all universities and colleges around the country that offer full or partial athletic  and academic scholarships.
       The relationships and understanding we have with a number of coaches, built through the years, keeps us up to date with the current situation in their teams and gives us a better idea of what kind of players they need.
       What unifies us is our path, which led us all across the globe, to the land of unlimited opportunities- from the day of that first step towards finding a university, throughout the thrilling and tiresome process of applications and luckily - admissions, to the day when we packed our bags and dove into the once in a lifetime adventure called America.
