Interested in Playing College Soccer
Are you interested in playing College Soccer? Despite what many people assume, you don’t have to be an All American NCAA Division 1 caliber player to do this. In addition to having options such as NCAA Division II & III, there are several other collegiate associations in the United States, such as NAIA, NCCAA, NJCAA, the USCAA, and the National Intramural and Recreational Sports Association for schools without collegiate programs, but who have a collegiate club team.
With so many opportunities, if you are realistic in your approach you should be able to find the right match for you. It has been my experience it’s not necessarily the most talented who find the right school program, it’s the player who is most educated on how the search and recruitment process works that has the greatest opportunities to find the right match.
There are countless recruitment organizations which can aid you in the search. Many of them offer great features including ones which will help you quickly search by state, level of play, degree programs, student population size, cost, etc. Some include video editing-posting and allow you quick access for sending coaches emails and attend webinars of financial aid, coach communication rules, visitations do’s and don’ts etc. Prices range from $100 to $1,000 for a four year membership.
In addition to The Portage Soccer Club being one of the most affordable programs in the state, we want to help our athletes find the right college program that’s the most affordable and best fit for their individual needs. This site will walk you through the steps and recommended timelines involved in the college soccer program recruitment process.
