PASSPORT TO COLLEGE SOCCER
BY KEVIN MCCARTHY; NEXT GEN USA DIRECTOR OF COLLEGE PROGRAMMING AND FORMER COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY HEAD COACH
The last webinar focused on contacting college coaches; this one is timely and is focused on ID clinics...are they worth attending?
It will also provide an all around recruiting overview.
The most common question I get is: We have never been through the recruiting process...help!
When families spend money at camps and clinics to get identified, they usually skip important steps, and end up hoping and waiting to get noticed and recruited. It is vital to look deeper at certain ID clinics and camps that claim to be legit recruiting opportunities, recognizing that most are about revenue--not recruiting. So do your homework on who is coming, is it a big or a high-touch event, understand what environment allows you to display your strengths. Research the college, the soccer program and their coaches. All your work upfront will help you choose the ID camps wisely and remember - be selective! Combining a school visit with an id clinic on campus and ensuring the coach knows you are going, is a pro-active way of maximizing your exposure at the event.
Helping players and parents is the aim of the Next Gen Passport to College Soccer program. We provide empowering education to you and your player, access to college coaches and inspirational showcase and tour opportunities, association with almost every college soccer program nationwide and the world's top professional clubs if your player wants that added differentiation on their resume. Our methodology will guide your child to transformative results and the ability to maturely steer through the transition from high school and club soccer into college.
