“As a former college student-athlete, I understand the hard work it takes “On the Field” to play at the next level.
More importantly, I understand the perseverance it takes “Off the Field” to make this dream come true.”
The Missouri Youth Soccer Association is strategically partnered with Choose It Right, an online college match and education service that helps student-athletes and their families choose the right college, major, and future career. What makes Choose It Right so unique is that with its Smart College Report, you are able to choose from a list of colleges based on a number of important, yet often overlooked factors, including the costs, available majors, and sports programs, as well as gain access to invaluable information about smart loan borrowing, scholarships and more.
The benefits of Choose It Right and the Smart College Report are many, which include the following:
* Simplifies the college search process for student-athletes and their families;
* Provides you with numerous resources and information instantaneously with just the click of a button, saving you and your family over 100 hours of research time;
* Matches you with colleges based upon your specific academic and/or sports-related preferences;
* Provides student-athletes with detailed contact information for college coaches;
It goes above and beyond the services of a sport recruiting company for a fraction of the cost by helping student-athletes and their families not only choose the right sports program, but also the right college, major and future career based upon their needs and qualifications;
* Helps you to determine how much you should actually pay for college and how to borrow smartly;
* Helps you to understand the current and future ramifications of taking out financial aid/student loan debt;
* Provides you with “done-for-you” services where you will receive everything from a targeted list of college choices that match your preferences to helpful information about financial aid, choosing an academic major, and more; and
* Gives you a “family based” approach to college by enabling your family to be involved in the decision-making process.
At the Missouri Youth Soccer Association, our goal is to help student-athletes get a leg up on the competition and play sports for years to come, including at the college level. We strongly recommend that you take advantage of Choose It Right and its services, including the Smart College Report and the complementary Smart Decisions Report.
