WDMSC has a rich tradition of successful college placement of both those seeking to play collegiate soccer and those simply looking to attend college. An integral part of West Des Moines Club’s programming is our College Advisory Program (C.A.P.). The College Advisory Program offers a comprehensive support system that will help guide the prospective student athlete and the parents through the process of finding the right college for each individual.
The College Recruiting Education Seminars will provide information on many different topics to help prepare players for playing at the next level. Topics will include Resume Building, Cover Letting Writing, Identifying Schools, Recruiting Timelines, NCAA Eligibility Standards, SAT Vs. ACT Testing, NCAA Clearinghouse, Contacting Coaches, Communication with Coaches, Unofficial and Official Visits, Scholarships (both Athletic and Academic) and other questions that parents and student-athletes may have regarding the entire recruiting process. This service is available to all U15 to U18 Select Boys and Girls Teams. It is highly encouraged that your daughter/son attends these sessions if they are interested in playing soccer in college.
Since our inception in 1986, the WDMSC College Advisory Program has helped place numerous former players in a variety of college soccer programs, including but not limited to the following schools: Drake University, University of California Los Angeles, Iowa State University, South Dakota State University, Minnesota State University, Ohio University, Yale University, Brown University, Coe College, Truman State University, UNC-Charlotte University, and Notre Dame University.
