For many families, college represents a milestone in the parent child relationship, independence, leaving home, management of one’s time, financial responsibility all come as part of the entry into the college environment. For many soccer families when their child is going off to college they will have been involved in the game for up to 14 years. The player and the family will have developed a love of the game that is likely to stay with them for the rest of their lives and they will have dedicated thousands of hours to what we all know to be the beautiful game.
As part of Xara’s acknowledgement of this commitment to the game, we offer the College Selextion Program. The College Selextion Program is designed to support the College aspiration of families involved in soccer. A College education can be expensive and making the right choice can be stressful. That is why the College Selextion Program gives families access to the College Profiler data base, with more than 5,800 colleges and Universities across the country.
Based upon your selection criteria (cost, location, majors offered, etc), College Profiler will provide you information about 10 colleges across the country that best fit your criteria. This gives you the best opportunity to find a college that best suits your needs. You can change your criteria as many times as you would like and each time you do, you will be provided with an updated list of colleges that best fit your most up to date criteria.
83% of all soccer parents say that the most important promise they make to their child is that of a college education. Xara assists families in your club with this critical decision and shows them that you understand what is important to their family.
