NCE Soccer will officially launch its College ID Program this Spring.
The National Center of Excellence has always provided support and insight for High School players with college aspirations.
And our Summer College ID Residential Camps and Showcase events have provided our older players with direct access to top class University coaches and scouts.
The brand new College ID program will run throughout the year, launching this Spring with total focus on College Programming.
Focused College Program
The College ID Program consists of:
- Dedicated 8-week training program for Under 15 to Under 19s
- Guest College Coaches
- Access to 8 x College ID Showcase events
- Access to annual regional College Combine
- Invitation to College ID Residential Camp
- Personal Mentoring for our in-house College Coordinator and external experts
- Webinars with College experts and Coaches
- Personalized Online Player Portal with shareable web page for players
“We know how important and confusing the college process can be and are ideally placed to support our players and their families,” explained NCE Soccer Technical Director John Curtis.
“We have worked for many years with top Universities and Colleges fostering excellent relationships with their coaching staff and scouts.
“The relationship is mutually beneficial as they know the standards we set and that means they know the levels of players we work with.
“But there is far more to the college process than simply impressing in a showcase, this is a process which needs to be managed both on and off the pitch.
“We feel an all-encompassing College Program will benefit our players and we are excited to see it become a reality.”
Every player that joins the NCE Soccer College ID Program will be given their own online webpage to track and log academic and sporting achievements.
Players can upload video showreels, relevant references and latest test results and GPA to share with coaches via a secure url.
NCE Soccer’s College Coordinate Evan Brandsdorfer is a former Division 1 Soccer player who actively recruits High School and Academy players as part of his role as head coach at Sarah Lawrence College.
“My role is to work with parents and the players to help walk them through the process,” Evan explained.
“As part of the new programming I will be available to offering personal mentoring, run online webinars and generally be by their side throughout the process.
“The access to college coaches and opportunities provided by our College ID Showcase events and Combines are invaluable for our players.
“It means they get the chance to train with coaches and showcase their soccer abilities during competitive soccer and that is a huge advantage.”
NCE Soccer have helped scores of High School players to secure top college places through our Showcase events and relationships with colleges and Universities.
