Soccer Scholarships

Playing college soccer in the US is a great way of still pursuing a professional career, but at the same time getting a university degree

Becoming a professional soccer player is the dream of most players. Earning a professional contract takes hard work, talent, determination and luck. The competition is fierce and the majority of young players are not given the chance to play at the highest level.

Playing college soccer in the US is a great way of still pursuing a professional soccer career, but at the same time getting a university degree - a bachelor’s degree that will certainly prove valuable.  First year professional contracts do not pay much in most cases, and a soccer scholarship from an American university can be worth a lot more than a contract. 

College soccer players are being drafted to the MLS and USL (the top two divisions in the US) each year and there are former college players currently playing at the top level all around the world. Some examples include Clint Dempsey, Carlos Bocanegra, Stuart Holden, Brad Friedel, David Weir and Shaka Hislop.

On the women’s side, college players are being drafted to the WPS every year. Other famous players that have played college soccer are: Mia Hamm, Kristine Lilly, Amy Wambach, Ifeoma Dieke, Siri Nordby and Kristine Edner Wæhler.

The demand for talented international soccer players, both women and men, is big in US college soccer. American coaches like to recruit international players because of their understanding of the game and experience at a high level. Finding the right blend of players for the squad is critical for success in college soccer.

The lifestyle of a college soccer player is very similar to that of a professional player. You train daily in excellent facilities, with fitness trainers, physical therapists and nutritionists, travel to matches staying in hotels and competing against top young players in the country.

Do keep in mind, college soccer is not only for players that have professional ambitions. We also assist players whose main goal is to get a degree,  a soccer scholarship and to experience playing abroad for a university team.

“My best memory from college soccer is definitely when we beat Akron in the last game of the pre-season. They are ranked the best best team in the country and we beat them 2-1 in front of 2300 fans in Tampa. I played the whole game and this is one of the biggest moments of my soccer career. It was also a lot of fun to play live on ESPN against Connecticut. More than 4000 fans created an excellent atmosphere in the stadium.”
