College Pre-season Update   Leave a comment

For starters, we have made a few additions and tweaks to the website.  Our blueprint for the club is now on its own page and can be accessed from the menu bar on top.  In addition, we have updated a number of other pages on the site (About, Playing For Us, Opportunities), so check them out.

We are just three days away from NCAA Division I teams starting their 2013 playing seasons (NAIA schools also begin play this weekend) and we currently have 19 players between those two levels on our scouting list.  NCAA Division II and III schools are in the process of finalizing their rosters, but to date there are 25 players from those schools on our prospective scouting list, with movement to the final list coming once the rosters are posted by the schools.

We are expanding our reach a little bit this college season as it comes to players.  We did so for this past year’s Women’s Premier League team due to a lack of numbers from our original demographic and found that there were other underserved soccer communities in the counties surrounding Milwaukee that could benefit from access to higher-level competition and participation with MUSC.  Therefore, we are adjusting our initial criteria to a sliding scale as opposed to a rigid set of requirements.  We hope that this will encourage more players to reach out to us about playing in the summer and will result in a stronger organization going forward.

Next week, we will be posting our College Soccer Preview and listing some of our current players to watch for this year, along with others who are on our scouting list.  Keep your eyes open for it and if you are local, I hope you can make it to some matches this fall.
