~ 7 Deadly Sins of College Soccer Recruiting – Scholarships ~

#6 – How do you get a scholarship to play soccer?

There’s one way that works best!

You may have heard that getting a soccer scholarship is “impossible” but there’s literally soccer scholarship money that goes unused every single year.

But there’s a catch… there’s always a catch.

The catch is that you need to play on the team that has the soccer scholarship money remaining.

Often these colleges are not the colleges your child chooses to attend which is why this money goes unused each year.

So how do you get a soccer scholarship at the college you want to attend?

The first rule is that you need to be flexible and willing to attend a lot of different colleges.

The wider the range of colleges you’re willing to attend, the greater the odds of finding a program that:

  1. Has soccer scholarship money available
  2. Is willing to give their soccer scholarship money to you

Being brutally honest, you should remove the thought of an athletic scholarship from your decision process altogether.

Look at any athletic scholarship you receive as “manna from heaven” but do not count on a soccer scholarship nor base your college choice solely on the prospect of a soccer scholarship.

The #1 best thing you can do is focus on an “academic scholarship” at the school where you choose to attend and play soccer.

Academic scholarships are far more plentiful and often more lucrative.

After 4-years of college, a high GPA is going to do more for your career than being the captain of your college soccer team.

** People are getting soccer scholarships so always ask for the money …just be realistic in your odds of getting the money!
