college ID Events

specially designed recruiting events aimed to effectively match players & college coaches


Soccerbook's goal is to offer ID events that provide an enhanced recruiting experience for both players and college coaches. Our events provide players with several advantages:

  • Get coached by and meet various college coaches
  • Great training & development opportunities: top level coaching staff
  • We provide an important showcasing situation: our events allow college coaches to see players train and play in a smaller group and within small sided game play situations - an important part of recruiting
  • We utilize the Pass2Me platform, which allows players to post, update & share their important academic, playing & college preference information with colleges, therefore improving the recruiting and matching process
