What is College Soccer Corner?
If you are about to embark on your college soccer journey, or are in the midst of navigating it and feeling lost, we promise that you’re not alone! College Soccer Corner was created with one goal in mind: helping players and parents navigate the college soccer recruiting process. Many families are unsure where to start and are oftentimes misinformed on critical details as it relates to the process. As the college athletics landscape continues to get more complex and more competitive, families rarely have access to resources that are experienced and knowledgeable about what it takes to successfully be recruited.
This process is truly a once in a lifetime experience, and it’s important both monetarily, academically, and athletically that you navigate it correctly. Each player, and each family, has a different goal and path to reaching that endpoint, but we hope that with this course that you can find the right program and fit for yourself or your child that sets their future up for long term success. If your goal is to save money on college via scholarship, achieve the highest academic school based on your grades, or achieve the highest athletic level that you can, this course will help guide you there.
Fortunately, College Soccer Corner has partnered with retired Northwestern Head Coach, Tim Lenahan, to create an all-in-one crash course containing everything players AND parents need to know. Coach Lenahan has over 30 years of college coaching experience and has proven himself to be one of the best college soccer coaches of all time. If you ever wished to understand how coaches recruit, what they look for when they evaluate, and how they strategically build their player roster, you’ve come to the right place! We’re excited to help you, along with the thousands of other families we’ve helped to date.
