College Preparation

PCU College Preperation Philosophy


At PCU, we strive to prepare athletes for a successful college career on or off the field. We are proud of the many PCU players have graduated to play at all levels of college soccer, all across the country.

But we are just as proud of the hundreds of PCU alumnus who have used PCU as a springboard to being healthy physically, socially and academically in college. At PCU, we strive to help players grow as players and as individuals who can contribute positively to their communities for years to come. Winter Competitive players benefit from college tours, 1-1 counseling and planning support and exposure to tournaments at universities across the West Coast.




Step One: Build a Resume

There is a built in margin so that you can put together team books for showcases and tournaments. Resume Template Example Resume PCU College Presentation




Step Two: Build a List of Schools and Contact Coaches


The next step is contacting schools you are interested in. This is a beginner list so it could consist of 20 or more schools. Send the coach your resume along with an email expressing your interest in thier program, DO NOT send a mass email to a bunch of coaches. You need to include a schedule of upcoming games or tournaments that they can see you play in. As an option, you can provide a video of you playing. A 10 minute section of a game focused on you and a small highlight section is all you need. You can either put your video on YouTube or send it in the mail along with your resume.
