Academic Planning & Recruitment 2021-2022

SUSA membership includes College Planning and Recruitment Services. Our goal at SUSA is to assist players and families with both the recruitment and college selection process.  

The SUSA College Planning and Recruitment Program was created to help each student athlete maneuver through the college process and reach their ultimate goal of playing college soccer. Our goal is to help our student athletes find both the best academic and athletic fit.

Academics play a huge role in each of our players’ lives and overall profile. We assist with the NCAA academic guidelines and information and can also help our players select the courses that will position them best for when it is time to apply to college. College selection criteria covered will include tips for communicating with a college, financial aid, academic fit and support, athletic ability and much more.

The Co-Directors of College Planning have extensive education and experience both within the academic setting and on the field. Their backgrounds provide SUSA member families with an unparalleled service no other club can offer.
