COLLEGE ID Program
F.C. Brighton's College ID Program designed to help players begin the process moving from high school age soccer to the next level. This will be done through helping educate players and parents on the recruiting process and creating player profiles, training directly with our Executive Director of Coaching and our Boys and Girls Directors of Coaching, and setting an annual plan which will include College Showcase tournaments.

What is a player profile?
All Players for this program should start to develop their Player Profile(resume). The Player Profile would consist of the following: short video highlights, extra curricular activities, academics, club and high school sports achievements and coach endorsements.
Will my freshman or sophmore player get much playing time?
Please understand that it is our intention to show all players at a reasonable level. It is important to recognize the older players in this program will have more play time than the younger players. This is because they are at a "relavent age" to the coaches attending the tournaments and thier time frame is more critical. If your player is a freshman or sophmore do not get discouraged if you do not hear from the college coaches. Most of the colleges are planning thier next season and are focusing on players that can come to their program for the following school year. NCAA rules also do not allow certain coaches to engage with players that are younger. We do however encourage our younger players to participate in the program, as it will allow them to grow as a player and understand the pressures and processes of playing in front of college coaches.
