The average female soccer scholarship is 43% across all three divisions.

The Cost of College & Your Post-Graduate 1:1 Ratio

 

Today, there is an increasing number of college graduates with student debt. While the sources and numbers may vary, recent estimates suggest that the average student debt for a college graduate is rising from around $25k to $35k. While many factors play a part in this national average, the fact remains that the college graduates are graduating with more and more student debt every day.

The Cost of College: Calculate Your Family's Real Contribution, Not How Much You Can Borrow!

 

For the past decade, economists have debated why the cost of college continues to rise in this country. Some blame it on the regulators, the banks, the student loan providers or even the colleges themselves…  But, WHO ultimately pays for college? WHO makes the final decision? There is an underlying issue that continues to be overlooked in this country …

When you are deciding on a college for your child, you need to calculate the true cost, not how much you can borrow.

College Cost = It’s Time for YOU to Set a New Standard!


College has become a burden - specifically, a financial burden for families and college graduates all across the United States. At one point in history, receiving a college education was an honor of the highest quality. A college education not only guaranteed you a job but it didn't cost anywhere near what it costs today. In fact, most college students could work their way through college and not have a single cent of debt after graduation.

High school student-athletes and their families need to set a new standard in their college search, says a longtime college soccer coach.

Do College Sports Camps Help An Athlete Get Recruited?

With summer camp season approaching, student-athletes anxiously await their opportunity to jump-start the college recruiting process. Camps can give athletes the opportunity to compete against other athletes from around the country. They are especially attractive to athletes who are trying to get discovered by college coaches.

But it is important for you as parent to help manage your athlete's expectations about what attending a sports camp can and can't do.

A college camp offers a student-athlete a chance to make an all-important first impression in front of college scouts, so it is important that impression be a good one because it is hard to change.

Playing for the Right Team: Less Important Than Committment to Sport and Love Of Game

Does playing for the right team, club or high school guarantee getting recruited for college is a question all parents of elite athletes end up facing sometime along the way as their children continue their growth as athletes.

The answer is simply no.  An athlete definitely has to play the sport they love with a commitment to being the best they can be. This can be accomplished at all levels of clubs, but the important thing is that the athlete be competitive with other top players. There is no need to jump from club to club.

Playing for the right team, club or high school doesn't guarantee getting recruited for college. It is more important that an athlete enjoy the team and loves to practice and play.

The video of April Justin's disappointment when her son Landon Collins announced his decision to attend the University of Alabama to play football has provoked a mostly negative reaction in the blog- and Twitter-sphere, but perhaps, says Brooke de Lench, there is another side to the story, one which explains why she reacted the way she did.
