"I’m looking forward to having my SoCal Blues teams play in this unique event that will guarantee us high level opposition, good facilities and the opportunity to play high level international competition while being able to be viewed by college coaches in an intimate setting where coaches can see more of my players qualities, not only in games but in training too. I've worked with SBC for many years and they will ensure a high quality event. I will be sure to invite the many college coaches in my network to attend!"  Abner Rogers, SoCal Blues. SC Blues is one of the top girls' clubs in the USA, supplying many players to college programs & dozens of players to US national youth & women's national teams.


"Im delighted to help contribute to the formation of this event. This enables us to provide our players with opportunities that will contribute to their development as players and people. Participating in a smaller more intimate setting against top quality California opposition as well as international caliber competition in front of college coaches as well as having a NCGS ID camp built into the packages is incredibly invaluable to us. We have hosted NCGS camps in the past and 200 players have attended with Anson Dorrance being in attendance on both occasions and we have hosted numerous individual college ID camps. Ive already gotten plenty of college coaches committed to attending our games!"  Gary Ireland, PSV Union FC. PSV Union FC is one of the highest-performing and smallest girls only soccer clubs in the US, with many players going on to play for the USA, Mexico & top college programs.

PRE-TOURNAMENT College ID clinic 

To supplement our game scouting opportunities SBC with our partner will present a built-in college ID camp similar to what we provided with previous events (for examples see here and here), with 15+ college coaches not only observing the clinic but also coaching the actual training sessions.  Up to 10 college programs will run clinics around the event with North Carolina Girls Soccer Camps  already committing the event. The participation cost will be in included in the tour packages. In addition a second ID camp will be attended by 10-15 college coaches. While playing in a competitive match is a very important aspect of the recruiting process the Training Environment is an ideal platform to scout players. Players have an opportunity to exhibit qualities that coaches otherwise does not get to see in games. Likewise, players get an opportunity to interface and work with college coaches. Coaches/scouts want to observe the following in an ID camp or training setting: 


  • How do players practice? 

  • Players training habits? 

  • Do players work well/interact well with others unfamiliar to them? 

  • Do players show good communication skills and leadership skills? 

  • Are players receptive to being trained and specifically to their training? 

  • How do players self-prepare?

  • How do players function in a small sided game (e.g. 5 v 5)?


By coaching at our ID camp college coaches were able to optimize their scouting time because they weren't able to see players in action as much as they would like to in a whole game during the actual tournament. They also saw how players function outside their team environment because these sessions were for individual participants not for entire teams. College coaches were also able to train/work with players and be able to speak with players in training sessions whereas they werent able to during the tournament due to NCAA recruiting rules. Players were able to get to know college coaches personally, observe their teaching and communication style.
