College Advisory Program (CAP) Introduction



The College Advisory Program (C.A.P.) provides high school age players and their parents with an introduction to the college recruiting, scholarship, financial support, and selection process. This process can be bewildering at times and the intent of the C.A.P. is to offer factual advice and assist in every way possible. Lobos Rush Soccer Club CAP Director, Mark Forrest will provide guidance but, will not do those tasks that the player and parents can and must do for themselves. On the following pages you will find everything you need from information to links, and videos to successfully navigate this process. We encourage parents and players to actively engage with their coaches and CAP Director throughout the process.

Recruiting Timeline

High School Senior

Division 1 NCAA soccer recruiting rules

These rules break down when athletes can receive specific forms of communication from coaches based on their year in high school:

  • June 15 after sophomore year: Coaches can start extending verbal offers and sending athletes all forms of private electronic correspondence, including text messages, instant messages, direct messages and emails, as well as all recruiting materials. Coaches can start calling athletes at this point. Coaches can also start conducting off-campus contact with athletes at their home or school.

    Additionally, coaches can begin initiating communication with athletes during camps and clinics.
  • August 1 before junior year: Athletes may begin taking official or unofficial campus visits. Athletic departments can also start participating in recruits’ unofficial visits, helping to schedule activities or meetings with coaches.
 

Division 2 NCAA soccer recruiting rules

The NCAA men’s soccer recruiting rules for Division 2 schools are slightly more relaxed than those for Division 1, with most contact starting in the summer of the athlete’s junior year:

  • Any time: Athletes can receive brochures for camps, questionnaires, NCAA materials and non-athletic recruiting publications.
  • June 15 after sophomore year: Coaches may begin calling athletes, as well as send emails, texts and messages. They can also conduct off-campus communications with athletes and/or their parents. At this time, athletes may start taking official visits.

Division 3 NCAA soccer recruiting rules

D3 men’s soccer colleges have the most relaxed recruiting rules among NCAA division levels:

  • Recruiting materials: Athletes can receive recruiting materials at any time.
  • Telephone calls: There is no limit on when college coaches can call athletes.
  • Off-campus contact: After the athlete’s sophomore year, college coaches may begin to conduct off-campus communications.
  • Official visits: Athletes can begin taking official visits after January 1 of their junior year.

College Fit Finder





Lobos Rush is excited to announce our partnership with College Fit Finder for our High School age groups in an effort to further assist our players in connecting them to the collegiate level.

As we strive to engage players, parents, and our own staff in the recruiting process, the club is providing this robust tool to EVERY High School age player/family.

The College Fit Finder provides our players with a competitive advantage over a typical student-athlete navigating the recruiting process. This comprehensive system allows for individuals to take ownership of their future by equipping them with tools necessary to find a home at the college level. As a club, we are committed to not only player development, but truly being a catalyst in helping our players fulfill their dreams of playing collegiate athletics and accessing higher education. The College Fit Finder will provide uniformity to the club's recruiting efforts and will allow for our coaching staff to take a much more personal approach in helping our athletes throughout the process.

We look forward to facilitating the recruiting efforts of every family looking to play at the next level.
