The EDP Foundation partners with colleges and universities with state-of-the-art soccer facilities to provide realistic game-day experience to help players prepare for playing in college, and increase their opportunities to connect with college coaches.
Players and their parents also have the opportunity to participate in 30 to 60-minute informative sessions with coaches from host colleges. Attendees can interact and learn first-hand from college coaches and participating college players onsite. At these focused events, EDP Foundation staff and coaches will discuss the value of pursuing professional careers after high school through higher education options at a technical or trade school, and public or private community colleges and universities.
In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the overall college soccer environment and engage directly with coaches in a Q&A session. Coaches will share tips and insights on how to apply to college, balance the pressures of athletics and academics, and enhance their success during the college recruiting process.
There is no cost for club/team participation. Facilities are provided by partner colleges and each event is made possible by the collaboration of EDP Soccer and the EDP Foundation. Selection criteria and eligibility is at the sole determination of the EDP Foundation Board with recommendations and advisement provided by EDP Soccer.
Clubs, Teams, and College Coaches: If interested in participating, you can apply via email. Please send details and contact information to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
