COLLEGE RESOURCES

The process of finding and selecting the right college fit takes work and time. It’s an important decision that will springboard you into a successful career and life after college. Eastside FC is committed to Building Champions in Life and to that end we can help you find your path. 

 

Regardless of where you are in the college selection process, it’s essential to stay on track and catch up if you’ve fallen behind. The college selection process is often misunderstood and almost always the source of unnecessary stress. We can help you make sense of things and provide actionable guidance and next steps. We've identified a recommended path that, when followed, keeps the process manageable.

High School Checklists

Keep your college recruitment process on track:

The College Recruitment Process

In earnest, the path to playing in college starts in your first year of high school. There’s not a lot that has to be done this first year, but as with any building, laying a solid foundation is essential.  As you progress through high school, more and more is required each year. Establishing and following a path makes the process simple. We can help you identify key milestones, roadblocks and decision points.  

 

Not unlike becoming a better player through individual training, the college selection process is your responsibility. We have the resources, understand the process and path, and will assist you, but we can’t do the work for you.   

 

Not everyone will play at the NCAA Division 1 level. And not everyone will continue on to play soccer in college.  We are here to help everyone looking to continue their education after high school – like I said, we are here to help.  Our focus at EFC is always going to be to help you find the right fit.  Help you get to the place where you can thrive.  When soccer is involved in your college decision we hope you’ll be encouraged to consider “fit over division.”
