The college soccer recruiting proces can be daunting and confusing for the club soccer player.  Parents and players have questions upon questions.  Below is a very helpful Q&A that should aid you in the recruiting process.

When can a college coach first contact me?
Coaches can send you non-recruiting material (e.g. camp brochures and questionnaires) during your freshmen and sophomore year.  Recruiting material may be sent September 1 of your junior year.  Coaches can call you starting July 1 going into your senior year and can contact you by phone once per week thereafter. 

When can I reach out to a college coach with an email or a phone call?

Prospects can call and email coaches without restriction.


Can I use social media to enhance my recruiting efforts?

You can reach out to college coaches through social media, ask to be friended, but college coaches cannot reach out to you and send friend requests.


When can a recruit make an on-campus visit?

A recruit can make unofficial visits to campuses at anytime and there is no limit to unofficial visits .  Official visits, in which all or a portion of the travel expenses (including airfare, food, and lodging) are paid by the college/university, are allowed after the first day of school in your senior year.  Prospects can make one official visit to each school and a total of five official visits prior to graduation.


How many times can a coach come and watch me play?

A college coach is allowed seven interactions (evaluations and contacts) per prospect during the course a prospect's high school academic calendar.  Evaluations are unlimited during summer and winter breaks. 


When can I receive notification of the scholarship offer?

Coaches are allowed to offer scholarships in writing starting the first school day of your senior year.  Scholarships may be verbally offered at anytime.


Can I and or my parents talk with the coach before and/or after the event that the coach has just observed?

During the day(s) of competition, the coach cannot contact you prior to the game in which you are participating or after the game until you are released by your coach and departed the facility.
