What a great turn out we had last night for our first “Come Learn how the College Recruiting Process Works” event. Over 130 players and parents were in attendance to listen to and learn from the College Coaches. There were quite a few common messages delivered at the event.
- Academics Matter, they matter a lot!
- Make sure you look for a school that matches you, fits your needs on and off the pitch
- Character off the field is as important as your skill and character on the field
- It’s never too early or too late to start thinking or working on the recruiting process
- There is a college out there for everyone – find the one that fits you
We want to THANK the coaches that were able to make time in their schedules and brave the cold and snow to come out and invest in our youth and their families. We know how busy your schedules are and appreciate your dedication to their futures.
- Baldwin Wallace Women’s Head Coach – Jim Wojtkun
- Hiram College Womens’ Head Coach – Michael Cracas
- Ashland University Men’s Head Coach – Oliver Slawson
- Heidelberg University Men’s Head Coach – Pat Svihlik
- Ursuline College Woman’s Head Coach – Jason Kubbins
- Cuyahoga Community College Men’s Head Coach – Devan Anderson
We look forwarding to doing this again next year.
At UPPER 90 FC we look for youth with a “passion for the game, players with the inner drive to reach for their goals, and players with exceptional character and sportsmanship both on and off the soccer field.” With these projects we are working to develop the “off the soccer field” aspect of our youth.
