SBC is exclusively partnered with college recruiting firm Rising Star Academy to scout college-bound soccer players & assist in refining college programs' scouting efforts. This partnership enhances the college recruiting experience for Australian players and clubs, and US college coaches.
Soccerbook Consulting (SBC) has provided the essential advice and guidance for prospective collegiate student-athletes to find the best program to fit their needs in the USA for over 20 years. SBC has now partnered with Rising Star Academy (RSA) to offer the most robust college recruiting service in the market. Founded by former North Carolina Womens Assistant Coach and recruiting coordinator Jason Sisneros, RSA 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. Together our team 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 college coaches to help both players and programs find a good match.
SBC founders can relate to Australians experiencing their search for the right US college fit. SBC was co-founded by Australian Gary Ireland who was recruited to several US colleges on scholarships as a youth player in Australia and offered scholarships and has helped placed hundreds of players in colleges over the past 25 years while Carine Ireland played briefly at Stanford University and has extensively guided helped train and place players in numerous college programs for 15 years. SBC Advisor Simon Ireland also played for USF and was offered multiple scholarships. Their perspective allows Australian college-bound candidates and their clubs a unique and valuable perspective making SBC the premier US college soccer football consulting service for Australian college bound players.
Finding the right college fit is a challenging process for most players and families as well as clubs who are seeking to provide the best youth football experience for its members. 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 can be ambiguous. RSA streamlines the entire process and provides a timeline for being scouted, recruited and selected. SBC has also partnered with RSA to create an affiliate program in Australia for clubs, leagues and schools to assist these organizations in helping their players find the right college fit.
