Description of this College Bound program
This event is part of our EBU Bay Oaks College Bound Education Series. This session will prepare you for the upcoming round of Fall/Spring college recruitment.

As the 2014 College soccer season winds down, scouting and recruiting starts up again.

Learn how to successfully navigate the timeline and the process.

Topics covered will include:
• Understanding and researching your choices
• How to effectively communicate with college coaches
• Setting up your ESN profile
• New NCAA recruiting rules and eligibility standards

The College Bound program is unique to East Bay United Bay Oaks (and select partner clubs/programs); a comprehensive program designed to help players successfully manage their college search and recruitment process, through extensive education, assistance and personalized guidance.

EBU Bay Oaks College Bound is based on the philosophy that a student-athlete must take ownership for his/her college search in order
to find a school that matches his/her academic, athletic, personal and social goals.

The players are then given the necessary tools and guidance to successfully navigate this challenging
process. Armed with a personalized CollegeRoadMap, players will have the knowledge, tools and motivation to reach the ultimate goal: gaining admission to a great-fit school and earning the opportunity to play college soccer.
