The Soccerbook team has provided the essential advice and guidance for prospective collegiate student-athletes to find the best program to fit their needs for over 20 years.
Finding the right college can be a difficult and frustrating process. The academic competition is tough, recruiting protocols are often unclear, there is a lot of information to sort through, and the timeline between getting scouted & receiving an offer or commitment to a school is ambiguous.
Soccerbook provides expert, individualized, and targeted college guidance to help match each player to a college that is best suited to their academic, personal & athletic preferences, capability, and potential. Our team of consultants has advised, guided, identified, recruited, evaluated & matched dozens of players at colleges that are the "best fit" for each individual, whether the program is NCAA Div I or Div III or NAIA, a large national university or a small private college, or a highly competitive & rigorous academic program or a more diverse educational experience. We work directly and closely with many major universities and college coaches to help both players and programs find a good match.
We are able to help a variety of different student athletes, no matter if what your goal is, but first we make sure that your expectations are aligned with what we are able to assist with. We are honest and upfront about what we can do for you and we only work with clients who we strongly believe we can provide the best service to. We believe a key element in the college matching process is the student-athlete. Young people who are hardworking students, dedicated soccer players and are committed to the recruiting process (contacting & following up with coaches, reaching out and putting yourself out there to be seen by colleges) will be most likely to be successful in this process.
For Soccerbook, the college recruiting process is more about finding the “right match” rather than just getting a lot of general inquiries from colleges or getting a scholarship offer. Our goal is to help match students to colleges that are the right academic, athletic and general (location, school size, campus) fit.
We provide very customized services. We work closely with clients and communicate directly with college coaches to find out what they want and to try and match people. There is a huge range of academic and athletic programs so it’s all about trying to connect the right people.
The Soccerbook staff individually evaluates a player’s ability and potential from a soccer coach’s perspective. Our professional trainers and coaches understand what to look for, and what college coaches want. This consists of anything from reviewing a playing background or resume, to communicating with your references (coaches), to training a player in an individual session, to watching a game or training person, to video analysis. We understand strengths and weaknesses in players and if a college coach is looking for a specific type of player we can identify who might have the potential to be a fit for their program.
Our consulting is solely focused on ONLY soccer. Our directors, advisors and consultants have extensive experience at all levels in the game, from youth soccer to college to professional. We specialize in understanding what coaches, teams, programs and players need and want in terms of collegiate soccer. Our staff has an average of 15-20 years of coaching, recruiting and identification experience per person.
We have strong relationships in the global soccer community, and in particular with US colleges, because of our reputation for integrity and professionalism and our experience from a coach/player viewpoint. Our expert staff can accurately evaluate and assess the potential of all players. We don’t just place players in colleges; we try to find the right place for them. We are honest with players and colleges from the start about what they can expect in the recruiting process and what programs they should aim for.
