URU SPORTS EMPOWERS EVERY ATHLETE, COACH AND TEAM TO UNLOCK THEIR FULL POTENTIAL BY LEVELING THE PLAYING FIELD.
WHAT WE DO.
Uru Sports connect elite athletes, coaches and teams globally.
We level the playing field so athletes and coaches no longer need to rely on personal knowledge/connections to find a new opportunity.
We utilize technology to unite the sporting world allowing easy access to the best information, opportunities & talent.
Think, the LinkedIn for sports.
We are not a sports or scholarship agency. Postings are in no way a written offer of aid – yet instead a great first point of connecting.
SPORTS ARE A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE & URU HAS THE POWER TO UNITE THE WORLD.
Your passion should not have a limited career because you are unaware of global opportunities to play, coach and recruit. There’s the opportunity, to completely revamp the random word of mouth networking that constitutes sports recruiting & finding international opportunities today. By helping athletes and coaches break down the barriers to opportunities globally we are ultimately helping diversify and strengthen teams.
In Maori, Uru means “join, access, inclusion”
JOIN – We encourage our athletes and coaches to join and engage with the international sports community.
ACCESS – We provide athletes, coaches and teams access to vetted information and opportunities to ensure optimal compatibility.
INCLUSION – The Uru community is a support system that guarantees you will forever be included in the global sports world.
NO BORDERS. JUST SPORTS.
We break down barriers through our international connections and open opportunities to allow sport can be your passport. Adventure, competition and camaraderie are the pillars to experiencing SPORT AS IT SHOULD BE.

Our founder has a story of her own. After graduating from the University of Michigan, McCallister played overseas for several club and regional teams- getting to be part of some of the world’s pinnacle competitions, including the Australian Hockey League and the European Club Championships. This experience allowed her to travel to 18 different countries, experiencing amazing cultures and people. It was life changing but not all experiences were smooth, enjoyable or as predicted. She saw an unmet opportunity to create a vehicle for others to have an unbelievable, life-changing experience playing overseas that is smooth and certain.
OUR CURRENT STATUS.
Our Uru Community is from more than 30 countries. Uru is currently launched in field hockey but other sports are on the near horizon. We are growing and improving our product for you every day. Please give us feedback!
