City SC is proud to provide a comprehensive college preparation program. With two full time college liaisons, we strive to educate players about the recruitment process and assist each individual with identifying soccer programs and universities that will be a good fit for their future. High school aged players gain access to recruiting tools, resources, and guidance, and prepare them for the demands of college on the field and in the classroom.
ScoutingZone® is a cutting-edge mobile app that is changing the recruiting game for soccer tournaments, scouts, and players. The innovation that our tools provide takes scouting to new levels, making it easier and more efficient than ever before by streamlining the on-site scouting experience at tournaments and showcase events. ScoutingZone® provides a comprehensive, “virtual” database of player profiles where both soccer scouts and athletes will maximize their opportunities to find the perfect match.
ScoutingZone® gives players greater visibility among scouts and allows them to update their profiles to maximize exposure with photos and links to highlight videos. Players can create a Top 10 College list that alerts scouts of player matches for their program, increasing the opportunity for recruitment. In addition to streamlining the process for tournaments, scouts and players, ScoutingZone® eliminates the time and costs associated with printing player profile booklets—all while making the experience environmentally-friendly.
City SC has adopted a comprehensive approach to player development and college placement. Our players must, of course, learn the necessary technical and tactical skill to excel on the field, but we also stress character development and mental toughness. Preparing for college requires a commitment to academic, athletic, and psychological success. We strive to provide excellent college preparation resources to our competitive athletes. Off the field, our players and parents will be educated on the college search process, receive one-on-one counseling, and have access to Scouting Zone.
