College Recruiting

For those players potentially interested in competing on a college soccer team, their high school years (U15-U18) are vital to the recruitment process. This is the time for players to identify potential schools, prepare an in-depth player profile, and contact college coaches. While this process can be daunting to the average high-school student, we at Galaxy SC hope that the following resources will better prepare you for what is to come.

Please view the check-lists below to see what you can expect from colleges and what each player should be doing at the following age groups:

U15: Research and Preparation
U16: Initiate Contact & Continued Research
U17: Maintain Contact, Narrow Your List, & Visit Schools
U18: Make a Decision & Tie Up Loose Ends

The recruitment and college selection process can be a daunting one for high school students and their families. Hopefully, this outline will provide you with many of the tools you will need to be prepared for everything that you will encounter along the way. We here at Galaxy SC are dedicated to placing our players in programs where they will be successful both on and off the field. If you ever have any questions or are in need of assistance with your recruitment process, please don’t hesitate to contact our coaching staff. We wish you all the best in your journey!

Galaxy SC will host college recruitment seminars throughout the year and will send teams to college showcases and players to college combines to help aid in the recruitment process.
