FCE College Promise

Our College Promise is based on being with the club for at least 4 years. The longer you are with us, the more we can help you be prepared for college (both on and off the field). If you are with us for at least 4 years, we promise that you will be in a position to play in a wide range of college programs and so your choices will be greater than had you not spent time with us at FCE. 

There are two main ways we help you prepare:

  1. ON the field – our coaching approach and genuine focus on the development of every individual means that over the course of a number of years with us, you will become a well-rounded player who truly understands the game. It won’t be a case of just having soccer competence (which is important of course) but it will be a case of having soccer consciousness; that is the awareness of why you do things in certain situations, including a strong understanding of the tactical side of the game. This consciousness and game understanding will make you a versatile, adaptable player who is able to fit into any program or style of play.
  2. OFF the field – our coaches are mentors to all of our players and so we will help you develop your character in a positive way. We work on developing things such as resilience, confidence, tolerance and even banter (which is very important among groups of athletes). Over time, we will help you develop the mental strength to bounce back from setbacks both on and off the field and this is a crucial trait for any student-athlete looking to play soccer in college.


College Showcases

Our high school aged teams play in multiple 'College Showcase' events during the season. Player 'exposure' via these events is often not what is portrayed via marketing (the most important part of recruiting is maintaining a solid highlight reel and connecting with coaches) but the Showcases are an opportunity for coaches to come and see you play. Please check with your Team Manager (or just check your schedule on Sports Engine which is updated 12 months in advance) to see which particular showcases your team will be entering.

Expert Advice

Our college recruitment specialist, Nic Heffernan, provides parents and players with information to help make the high school to college process easier and simpler.  Nic has experience on both sides of the recruitment process and so his guidance is hugely beneficial for FCE players and families.

Individual Game Highlights

In addition to this, our teams use automatic game filming services (Trace Up) so that individual players get personalized highlights that can be used for college highlight reels.

Club Structure: Middle School thru High School to College

Our club is structured in a way that allows individual players to start playing with us (and being coached in a way that is proven to be hugely effective in terms of developing each individual player) from the age of 10 (middle school).

Our team age groups run through middle school and high school (our 8 teams span 8 years of school grades). The younger you start playing with us, the better prepared you will be if you want to play at the collegiate level.

8 years of growth and development with us (with decision making and game intelligence being absolutely key) will put you in a position to fit into pretty much any college soccer team or program.
