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.

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.

WMYSA is proud to be your partner in your search for the right college soccer program for you. To aid in this partnership we are now offering our own College Soccer Combine and scholarship program. Additionally, we have created an eight step process that will help walk you through the recruitment process starting with understanding of recruitment rules, types of available scholarships, how to research schools, creating your soccer profile,getting started the recruitment process, school visits, commitment and financial aid.
