L.C. Bucklin (a former writer, photojournalist and fine-art photographer) has been involved with the world of soccer recruiting for many through her two daughters. By writing this book, she hopes other athletes (and their parents) can benefit from her experiences and her mistakes regarding the world of college soccer recruiting. Her oldest daughter, Alexandra, was recruited to play women's soccer at Brown University and her youngest daughter, Taylor, was recruited to play soccer at University of Michigan on an athletic scholarship before transferring her Sophomore year to Univ. of Louisville.
Many athletes (and their parents) find the college recruiting process to be confusing, complex and difficult. They're not sure where to start or how to begin. If you're an athlete and want to play soccer at the college level, then you can't wait for coaches to come knocking at your door, or expect to be 'discovered.' This guide explains what a player needs to do to be successful recruited.
