Beadling Soccer Club has a proud history of sending our student athletes to many of the best collegiate soccer programs in the country. Our players have earned more soccer scholarships than any club in the history of PA West and we continue to offer the best training and competitive play in the region. Beadling SC is committed to helping our players maximize their opportunities to earn those roster spots. As an important part of our Beadling College Mentor Program, we are excited to announce our partnership with College Fit Finder, a recruiting technology platform that provides a comprehensive solution that simplifies the process for our high school student-athletes and their families.
The life of a college-bound student is filled with college entrance exams, honors classes and community service projects. In addition, pressures on the field are mounting as practice and individual training sessions are increased, as is participation in games, tournaments and showcases. Now add to the mix something that is just as important and time consuming: the recruiting process, with it’s research, strategizing, and regular communication with numerous college coaches. Any student-athlete preparing for the next level must walk through the recruiting process guided by a well thought-out plan. A superficial look at the whole course of action may reveal that academics and on-field performance are the only components to a successful recruiting equation. It’s important to focus on another important aspect of the process…EXPOSURE. If a college coach doesn’t know who you are, regardless of how qualified academically and athletically you are, you cannot and will not be recruited.
Partnering with College Fit Finder gives the club access to this unique system, which allows each high school aged player to have an individual account to assist with their college search and recruiting process. College Fit Finder is a vast online database of information about every college soccer program in the country. It allows players to “research schools, find appropriate matches, save favorites, track and organize communication with college coaches, and get assistance in logically selecting a school that matches their needs.” Combined with Beadling SC’s college mentoring, this powerful tool will be a tremendous resource allowing players to move effectively and efficiently through the phases of recruiting. This service will be available to all players ages 14 and up at no additional cost.
