How does College Soccer work?

College Soccer is slightly different from the ‘normal’ soccer that you are used to in your own country: both in organization and in atmosphere. The biggest difference is that you don’t play for a club, but for your university.

On average, a team consists of 20-25 players who compete against other universities in the same competition (conference). The ultimate goal? Qualifying for the national tournament of the year. During this tournament, the 48 best college teams in the country compete for the title.

College Soccer matches last just as usual for 90 minutes, divided into two halves of 45 minutes. Yet there is a difference: instead of adding up to 90 minutes, College Soccer counts from 90-0. This makes it possible to constantly change players during the second half. This ensures that the pace remains extremely high and it is a physically tough battle.

What about scholarships and College Soccer?

Studying in an American school can cost up to $ 65,000 a year! An amount that is unrealistic for almost all students. Fortunately, almost all Universities with College Soccer teams offer the possibility of obtaining both an athletic and academic scholarship.

Slamstox helps you find a scholarship so that your college tennis experience becomes affordable. Some student athletes receive a full scholarship, then you can play sports and study in the USA free of charge for four years. Other student athletes receive a partial scholarship, then a (large) part of the study costs will be covered.
