Overview

 

DLVSC is here for YOU – Our goal of the College Preparatory Program is to provide high school age DLVSC players with an introduction to the college recruiting, scholarship, financial support, and selection process. The college process can be complex and often confusing. This program offers a comprehensive support system that will help guide the prospective student-athlete and parents through the process of finding the right college for each individual.

Experience is the KEY – The College Preparatory Program staff consists of highly qualified DLVSC Directors, Technical Staff, Coaches, and Administrators with experiences that range from all collegiate levels to the professional game. The partnerships and relationships with some of the most respected and qualified organizations in their respective fields will bring a variety of resources and tools to our membership.

Your journey your WAY – The program will be a blend of informational presentations and hands on workshops that will provide information on many different topics to help prepare student-athletes for an education and playing career at the collegiate level. We will provide you with a framework that will help each athlete start to define what kind of educational program and athletic experience that you are seeking. Topics will include Resume Building, Cover Letting Writing, Identifying Schools, Recruiting Timelines, NCAA Eligibility Standards, SAT Vs. ACT Testing, NCAA Clearinghouse, Contacting Coaches, Communication with Coaches, Unofficial and Official Visits, Scholarships (both Athletic and Academic) and other questions that parents and student-athletes may have regarding the entire recruiting process. This service is available to all high school aged players on both the boys and girls side of the club. Downtown Las Vegas Soccer Club highly encourages that your son or daughter attend these sessions if they are interested in attending college regardless of whether they plan to play or not in a collegiate level program.

Downtown Announces Partnership with College Fit

Downtown Las Vegas Soccer Club is excited to announce our partnership with College Fit Finder for our High School age groups in an effort to further assist our players in connecting them to the collegiate level.

As we strive to engage players, parents, and our own staff in the recruiting process, the club is providing this robust tool to EVERY High School age player/family.

The College Fit Finder provides our players with a competitive advantage over a typical student-athlete navigating the recruiting process. This comprehensive system allows for individuals to take ownership of their future by equipping them with tools necessary to find a home at the college level. As a club, we are committed to not only player development, but truly being a catalyst in helping our players fulfill their dreams of playing collegiate athletics and accessing higher education. The College Fit Finder will provide uniformity to the club’s recruiting efforts and will allow for our coaching staff to take a much more personal approach in helping our athletes throughout the process.

We look forward to facilitating the recruiting efforts of every family looking to play at the next level.
