    Hi all,

    For athletic recruiting purposes, does your junior year start the day you finish your sophomore year in the spring or the first day of your junior year in the late summer/fall? Thanks in advance. Realize I could probably look this up, but assuming someone out there already knows the answer right off the top of his/her head.

    2016 stats

    There are approximately 1673 college soccer teams (D1 to CC) in the US. Average roster size is 24 however 28-32 is a more realistic number.

    NUMBER of Team per Division
    335 D1-------average scholarship 16,186
    265 D2-------average scholarship 7451
    447 D3-------0

    Therefore there are about 10,000 D1 roster spots

    average scholarship per team 17766
    Low - 6220
    High - 31,363

    Would love to get verification on those #'s. Here's what I found for Girls Soccer Scholarships...
    NCAA D1: 314 Schools, 14 scholarships/school
    NCAA D2: 223 Schools, 9.9 scholarships/school
    NCAA D2: 409 Schools, 0 Scholarships
    NAIA: 221 Schools, 12 Scholarships
    Not sure how the D1 scholarships can be more than twice the amount of the D2 schools with those #'s....maybe less expensive tuition at D1?

    Here is a good FREE resource we found. It outlines the recruiting process in an ebook and then they send emails with some REALLY good information and tips and real life experiences that were interesting.

    Hope this link works....

    D1 median is around 9K.

    A very few players get a lot/all, the rest get a few thousand to nothing. If players don’t get a lot of money, at least they get priority registration and possibly admission to a school they couldn’t otherwise get into. Schools can waive out of state tuition in addition to giving scholarship money to further reduce your cost.

    D3 schools can often give more in academic money than most kids can get on D1/D2 scholarship.

    What we were told at various universities was that everyone gets some money. That could be 500 bucks so they can say they get a scholarship or those that are in the few that get full scholarships. Anyone that says they get a full scholarship isn't telling the whole truth. UC's (minus UCLA/Cal) really rely on the FASFA and the EFC of the players parents. then they can determine how much they'll offer. I've heard of players getting 25% athletic and with FASFA it comes out to 90% and vice versa.

    Also, private schools which are high tuition give a combo of athletic, merit, and FASFA that can make it really appealing for a player to pass up.

    A scholarship is broken down into:

    Athletic
    Merit
    FAFSA

    Critique is correct, no one receives 100% athletic, more like a combination of the three. Parents like everyone to think it's athletic however. ;)

    Some players do get 100% athletic. Most don't and parents should not expect it.

    $ is nice to have but priority registration, ability to pick/change classes, tutoring, access to athletic study hall, training room/weight room/ trainers/Dr’s, free admission to all Home sport games
    Scholarships could remain the same /decrease / increase each year -

    I am not sure how much outside these conferences but I believe the Power 5 schools cannot decrease scholarship amounts or cancel them for athletic reasons - they are now considered "four year" awards (rather than "one year renewable").

    and @LivingTheDream mentions some important factors that student-athletes should consider in addition to the coaching staff and team performance as they directly impact the student-athlete experience (sometimes as much or more than the time spent on the pitch)

    And you forgot free apparel, meals on the road and just all our fun. Plus you kid will be part of a coed fraternity right when they step on campus.

    Yes - free gear is nice. Training/Uni’s washed folded in their locker, meals / games on the road/stories priceless, long bus rides....we use to bet $5 of our travel allowance on first soccer bag out the airplane terminal wins the pot!
    You hit it the nail on the head - Instsnt sorority and bond -

    @dk_b Dont know anything about four year awards; interesting Big 5 committing to four years of $$; things change, players change, transfers come in/out... don’t know how most Big 5 structures/allocate their $$ but guessing it’s very low year one (& you get in the college) w/ potential increases (pending on value) years 3-4....unless your top 5 national player

    I am guessing the Power 5 decision (which is a couple of years old now) was driven by hoops and football - where pretty much any/every player who travels on the road is a full ride player - but the info seems pretty clear and applies to all sports. And the experience from my own kid’s recruitment, the commitment (albeit verbal at this point) was very clearly 4-year, not 1-year renewable. From talking to a close circle w/whom I share all and they share all, our experience is consistent (though the actual awards vary, of course, and we don’t talk about that). Schools CAN go UP but they can’t go down and they can’t drop for playing reasons.

    CONGRATULATIONS to all the kids signing today (and to any of the parents on this board whose kids are taking the next step). An exciting milestone for all of them.
