United Soccer Association is proud to announce the 1st annual College Showcase which took place on Sunday January 21, 2018 on the beautiful campus of Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, FL.
This event was a FREE, invitation only showcase for 16u through 19u (2002, 2001, 2000 and 1999) boys & girls who have aspirations of playing at the collegiate level. Players had to be registered with the USA League to be eligible.
“We were excited to be able to showcase the league’s talent, to provide an opportunity for the kids to play in front of college coaches and continue to provide value to our member clubs. This is another example of what sets the USA League apart from other leagues,” says USA League President, Paul Van Steenbergen.
College coaches from all levels (NCAA, NAIA, NCCAA, NJCAA) were in attendance to evaluate players. The showcase was structured to give players multiple opportunities to showcase themselves in a combination of small sided games (7v7) and full sided games (11v11). Training gear, water and lunch was provided courtesy of the United Soccer Association.
