Information for College Bound ATS Players
Hopefully it is the goal of every Arlington Travel Soccer player to continue her or his education in college. Whether or not they intend on playing college soccer, participation in youth soccer is an extracurricular activity to include on their college application, especially for those who demonstrate the commitment necessary to play in a competitive club soccer program like ATS.
High school age players should talk to their ATS coach about their college goals and aspirations so the student athlete has realistic expectations when they apply to colleges. ATS staff includes many former college, professional and even international players as well as current and former college coaches, all of whom are available to each player and family for assistance in this important process. It is equally important that players balance their schedule in order to devote adequate time to achieve scholastic success so critical for college admission.
Each year the club offers a free College Night where college coaches from local area colleges are present to give club parents and players current information on what colleges are looking for in prospective student athletes. We also have former club players now in college on the panel to discuss balancing soccer, academics and college life.
