At Sporting San Diego, it is our goal to provide our players with the tools necessary to play at the collegiate level. We recognize that not all players may wish to play soccer at the next level, but for those who are committed we will assist them in finding the right college or university to fit them. College preparation is an important step to ensure an athlete has the academic, athletic, mental preparation and service-based experience to attend college. This page will help you navigate the field of college preparation to get your athlete in the best possible position for success.
