Under the leadership of Coach Kacey Burke, Play Soccer In College is designed for high school aged young women who are committed to improving their soccer games and becoming successful student-athletes in college.

Play Soccer In College will create a comprehensive plan designed to help your youth soccer player realize her dream of playing collegiate soccer. Each plan/program will be unique and tailored to the specific needs and situation of the player and her family.

 

Services Format

 

Initial Assessment & Consultation

This is the ideal way to start working with Coach Burke! The full-day assessment and consultation can take place at your home or in Raleigh, NC.

 

If you want to play collegiate soccer, this is a relatively inexpensive way to have a private one-on-one meeting with a very successful Division 1 coach and former National and Olympic Team member who can let you know where your game stands, what you need to do to improve and how the college recruiting process really works.

 

In addition, Coach Burke will review your current college recruiting/placement situation and strategy and provide honest feedback and recommendations.

 

The meeting includes a client interview, practice session, a comprehensive game assessment, youth soccer overview, college placement discussion, up to 2 hour question and answer session, a written summary with recommendations and several follow-up calls/emails within two weeks of the meeting. The fee may be applied as a credit towards any other Play Soccer In College program within the first 30 days.

 

This will be the best investment you will ever make in helping your child realize her dream of playing soccer in college.
