“Hi John! I just wanted to thank you so much for everything you’ve done for me. I’m about halfway through my first term here running at Dartmouth and I am loving every minute of it! You just made the whole recruiting process so much less stressful and were so helpful in helping me choose the perfect school for me.”   from Angela

Having a child that desires to continue playing at the collegiate level can be totally overwhelming. Not only do you have the task of trying to determine the right fit for your student/athlete, you have to create a system of continuous contact, letting coaches know about your child’s desire to play for a particular school and what they bring to that program – really selling your child because there are thousands out there just like them.   Depending upon the level your athlete is looking to compete, there are hundreds of potential schools!!! How do you know which ones are good, a good fit for your child and a good fit for your family? We were totally overwhelmed and it was our third child. We were thrilled when we met Chris! We only wish we would have met him with our first child/athlete, it would have made the entire process so much more enjoyable and taken much of the stress out of the process. Since working with Chris for only a month, our daughter has three offers and has numerous schools talking to her, she has options and that is so unbelievably awesome! Chris is helping her determine the schools to visit, what to ask, how to ask and how to get the most out of our visits and the school. Again, we only wish we would have met him five years ago. Thanks Chris!

Chris Siedem was outstanding in guiding my girls toward finding the right college for their athletic pursuits.  Chris worked with us from the time my daughters were sophomores and provided helpful advice throughout their high school athletic career.  One of my daughters is a swimmer and the other is a basketball player.  Chris’ knowledge of the recruiting process and how to interact with coaches is unparalleled.  He would meet with both me and my daughters and patiently answer our questions and provide us with helpful feedback.  Both my daughters have established communications and relationships with around 100 coaches and both have many opportunities to compete in college as a result of the guidance the Chris has provided.  I would highly recommend Chris to anyone who has a high school athlete who is thinking about pursuing college athletics.

“Hey John, I’m having a great first semester at Denison and we are 5-0 to start the football season. Thanks for all of your help, I wouldn’t be here without it.”  from Sam

It was the end of January of his senior year, and my son hadn’t found anything. In less than 3 months, Chris Siedem helped us find multiple offers. Braden went on to a great school, is playing football for a nationally ranked team, and has almost all his education paid for. I will continue to recommend him to others.

As a senior with State Championships coming up, Ashley was two weeks from seeing her playing days come to end in October of 2012, as she was having no contact with college coaches. Perfect College Match sent information to college coaches on Ashley’s behalf immediately prior to State – Ashley had a dozen coaches present specifically to watch her, and about half a dozen waiting to speak with her when she came off the field. Within 10 days, Ashley had 7 college visits planned, and she later committed after receiving multiple offers. All told, Ashley went from not being recruited, to being committed, in slightly more than two months.

“Colorado Mesa is a blast and so is LAX here. I think my parents like it as much as I do. John, thank you for all your help in opening doors at colleges for me and guiding my family…it meant a lot.”  from Michael

“Thank you for helping both my family and myself in the recruiting process, John! Your help made the process as simple as it needed to be, allowing me to focus on studies and responding to coaches’ emails as I finished out high school. I can’t thank you enough for helping me find the perfect place to call home!” from Ben

Chris Siedem was a key consultant, friend, and directional help as we navigated the complexity of college recruiting.  Our son Isaac was being recruited by many schools and we needed so much wisdom along the way.  Chris provided tremendous insight at each turn. Largely through the wisdom Chris gave us, we are very excited about the choice we made for Isaac’s college career.

Chris Siedem is the reason for my success at North Central College. He set me up with a state-of-the-art recruiting profile that contained essential information required in the recruiting process. I felt highly under-recruited before I met Chris, and without his help I wouldn’t have had the viable options of where I would spend my next four years. He was very knowledgeable about every step to take in the process. Thanks to Chris, I am proud to say I found my dream school. I would recommend his services to ANY athlete who is looking to play at the next level.

It was evident right away that we felt a connection with Chris and agreed with his overall philosophy of finding a good fit academically, athletically, socially and financially for our son. He spent a lot of time asking our son questions to get a feel for the type of school setting that would allow him to thrive and be successful. The initial process was time-consuming-collecting data and other information, getting video clips and references- but my husband, son and I worked together as a team. Chris was readily available to answer questions, consult with us and support us in any way. We were amazed at the number of responses from college coaches our son received from colleges all across the country. As the process continued, we enjoyed learning about schools and areas of the country we weren’t familiar with, and we can honestly say it was a fun experience. Throughout the process, Chris maintained excellent communication with us and genuinely cared about our son’s future endeavors. We were so pleased with Chris and his program that we will be using him again to help our younger son. We highly recommend Chris for your recruiting needs. His insight and wisdom helped our son to achieve his dream of playing basketball in college.

When our daughter decided in January of her Senior year of high school that she wanted to play college volleyball, we didn’t know where to start. Chris was our guiding light! He helped us create a plan that culminated in a truly perfect fit. Bethany was the starting libero in her freshman year on a team that won their conference championship. She was named the Volleyball Defensive Player of the Year by her twelve-school conference! The Rivier University community is everything she hoped for, her volleyball teammates are terrific, and she likes her classes and professors, too. Chris’ advice throughout the process was extremely valuable. We definitely benefited from his experience. Bethany would not have landed in such a perfect spot without Chris’ guidance.

We used Perfect College Match for our oldest daughter. Chris worked with us not only trying to get our daughter to the perfect school, but also on the financial side to. He is very affordable and is willing to work with you regardless of income status. He worked his butt off trying to get Haille recruited to the right school not just any school. Many times during tournaments he would be in other softball complexes talking to college coaches about what they are looking for and recommend Haille. But only if it was a fit academically and as well athletically. He is very well connected and will always be honest to you and college coaches. Which is why I believe he is the best!

We had the pleasure of working with Chris Siedem and Perfect College Match during the recruitment / selection process of our oldest son. Although he was above average student and athlete at a reputable school, colleges weren’t lining up to sign him and the process quickly became overwhelming. We met Chris at a showcase event and began working with him shortly thereafter.

Though his own life and personal experiences, Chris was honest and realistic in his assessment of where our son could succeed academically, athletically, and socially. Chris marketed our son in a positive and persistent manner, which eventually led to sincere interest, paid college visits, and an eventual signing. We could not have done it without Chris and although it’s only been one semester, I truly believe our son found the “Perfect College Match.
