College Nights

College Nights help your players and their families on their Pathway to College™ by providing an informal, open and interactive forum where parents and student-athletes encouraged to ask questions and discuss the college recruitment, application, and admissions process.

Partner with us to educate your parents and players. We are here to help them learn more about the value of obtaining post high school education.


This program is specifically designed to provide high school soccer athletes and their parents an informative and educational meeting on the college recruitment and admissions process.

Working closely with EDP Soccer and its valued member clubs, these events will be fully funded by the EDP Foundation as it continues its mission to enable young soccer players to reach their full potential on and off the fi eld by creating connections to college.

College Nights can be held at the location of your choice and will be hosted by the EDP Foundation Chair, Peter Gooding, who has coached at the college level for over 30 years, and Milton Gooding who also has extensive college coaching experience at Kenyon College, Amherst College and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Additionally, Milton has built a successful college placement company, serving families from across the country with educational and athletic consulting.
