University soccer placement is a difficult process but if a player is successful it can be a life-changing experience. Playing university soccer often gives players the opportunity to play soccer in a different city or country, experience a new culture and meet new friends.
At Orix Academy our relationships with university coaches affords us the ability to provide our players with step by step guidance in the recruitment process. Through these relationships a number of our players have received athletic and academic scholarships from universities in Canada and the United States.
It is important to understand that most coaches do not have the resources or budget to find and evaluate every single type of player on their wish lists. If a player wants to increase their chances of being considered for a scholarship it is imperative they take the initiative and contact coaches of the schools they are interested in attending, and present themselves in a manner that will draw the desired result.
Orix will assist academy players in connecting with the coaches from the schools they are interested in attending and guide them through the process to ensure players are able to effectively market their value to schools they are interested in attending.
