College Soccer is a popular sport available at many schools at Division I, II or III levels. The soccer season is in the fall, with championships in December.

Recruitment often begins while students are still in 8th or 9th grade. Students interested in playing soccer at the college level may want to reach out to coaches or plan to meet them during a campus visit.

DI teams are typically at larger schools and can be very competitive. On the other hand, DII schools are usually smaller with fewer scholarships available, and DIII schools do not offer scholarships related to athletics.

Any division is appropriate for a student depending on your abilities, goals, and interests. But, first, determine whether a school is a good fit for you academically and provides you with the athletic opportunities you desire.
