The Elusive Full Scholarship is more than a guide to the college recruiting process, it is a must-read for any student-athlete and more importantly, any parent who wants their child to enjoy taking part in sports.
I have been fortunate to coach over 100 former female soccer players as a club and high school coach who have played in college. These players have gone on to play soccer at D1, D2, and D3 schools. These players have been recruited as freshmen to those who decided in the spring of their senior year where they wanted to go. Players who have been on a full scholarship to those that have played at the club level at college. I have players that have been recruited from the ACC, AAC, SEC, Ivy League, NESCAC, Patriot League just to name a few, and players who went to schools here in New England to across the country. Over the last 40 years of coaching youth sports at all levels and being involved with elite soccer players, the one key component to the entire scope of youth athletics is perspective.
Alison Foley and Mia Wenjen speak from experience and understand what it means for a student-athlete to find the “right fit” for college. This book is an easy read, great reference book, a detailed ‘how to’ guide, but more than that it keeps the entire outlook in perspective.
It is a must-read for any athlete and their parents regardless if they looking for the elusive full-ride scholarship.
