College Advisory Program (C.A.P)

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 C.A.P Director, James Beattie will provide guidance but, will not do those tasks that the player and parents can and must do for themselves. On the following page you will find everything you need from information to links, and videos to successfully navigate this process.

For questions about this program, please contact Lobos Rush College Advisory Program Director James Beattie - [email protected]

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.
