"In House" College Showcase Day
January 26, 2013 at
Breakaway Sports World-Dracut
Our top participant will be Manfred Schellscheidt: Former Seton Hall men’s coach, BU14 National Team coach, Region 1 ODP Head Coach, USA Olympic Coach and USA Men’s National Team Coach. Manfred will probably lead some sessions as well as other coaches if it does not conflict with NCAA rules and regulations.
We have confirmed participation from Seton Hall-men’s & women’s; American University-men’s & women’s (if a new coach is in place by then); Princeton University-men’s & women’s; UMass/Lowell-men’s & women’s; Lesley College-men’s & women’s; Emerson College-men’s & women’s; Ana Maria College-men’s & women’s; Dean’s College-men’s & women’s; Philips Academy coaches and many more are in the process of confirming.
Dr. Dina Gentile, our own Technical Advisor and Clinician, will have a 15-20 minute Q&A session prior to each
team’s start. Please arrive early and prepared to ask questions. To help you prepare, please read the article Dina has written on the subject, http://www.korrio.com/parenting-lifestyle/college-decision-time-for-athletes/ and included in our January newsletter.
This is unique opportunity for our players and a first in any club offerings. All the coaches will be focusing and watching our players without having to shuffle back and forth to different fields and catch hundreds of kids playing.
Our players might not make a good fit for their program or our players might not have any interest in the colleges at hand. However their input could prove to be valuable to other college coaches in their extensive network circles. For example, coach Schellscheidt is well known and respected in the soccer communities and his opinion carries a lot of weight. If he says, “this young man/woman will make a great fit into your program”, it’s like a done deal for any college coach.
Your coaches and team admins will be putting together a player’s profile packet to be handed out to the college coaches. Please assist in their efforts.
Parents and players of the younger teams are invited to drop in at anytime.
