NCSA Reviews for Soccer from Athletes and Parents

Class of 2021 – Student-Athlete – Soccer
“Ultimately, NCSA is a good way to get recruited and build a relationship with other college coaches. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Soccer
“Since I have become a member of NCSA, I feel more confident in college searching. Being able to talk to someone personally helps me too; they get to know me and will help me individually. I feel if I recommend a friend to NCSA, they will receive the same positive experience.” 

Class of 2020 – Parent – Soccer
“Thus far our experience has been positive, however we are just beginning.  We went with another company with our daughter and was not impressed as we progressed further along in the process.  We are optimistic that our experience with our son will be different.” 

Class of 2020 – Parent – Soccer
“1) Coach engagement 2) Workflow that guides on the next steps 3) University videos that give insight on various aspects of recruiting 4) Ability to search schools based on various criteria and track over time 5) Ease of emailing coaches.”

Class of 2020 – Student-Athlete – Soccer
“Access to coaches and ability to research schools on various criteria. The match statistics are also helpful to focus on schools that make sense.”

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Soccer
“The coaching staff is great. My coach is always checking up on me, making sure everything is up to speed and that I’m doing what I’m supposed to do. She recommends ideas to me and what I should do and through NCSA it gives me a better idea of where I want to go and the recruiting process that comes along with it.” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Soccer
“We've been really happy with the assistance we've gotten from our recruiting coach, as well as the WEALTH of information available on the website.  In addition, the process for communicating with coaches is so simple, and the fact that every email includes the link for our daughter's profile is ideal. We love NCSA!” 

Class of 2021 – Parent – Soccer
“The videos were a huge benefit to us as we started out with the recruiting process. The ease of accessing the NCSA account either online or via the mobile app has helped with making playing college soccer a daily task to work towards. We use the email coach functionality frequently. And we constantly use the search school functions to find basic info about schools.” 

Class of 2020 – Parent – Soccer
“I believe that NCSA is out to help kids follow their dreams of playing soccer in college. I also believe that NCSA will take the pressure off the athlete, especially while they study and practice and live through their high school days while still reaching for their goals. Overall, we are trying to get her name out there so she gets noticed and had heard NCSA is the place that would help her. Coach Ellen Brown has helped a lot and I believe that we're on the right track.” 

Class of 2020 – Parent – Soccer
“We most definitely would and have recommended people to NCSA. I also would recommend listening to the Facebook series they have. It’s very informative if you have any doubts about the path you take to get your athletes recruited. A special thank you to Ellen Brown for helping Callie through her journey.” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Soccer
“Essentially, I gave NCSA a 10 because it gives the athlete a higher chance to be looked at by colleges and hopefully the college of their future. I believe that without a recruiting website, yes you still have a great chance at being recruited, but with NCSA I personally believe the athlete is given the chance of a lifetime to explore their options and pursue their student-athlete education.” 

Class of 2020 – Parent – Soccer
“Well it is still early to make a complete assessment, but so far I have to say the staff at NCSA is incredible.  Every single person I have talked to so far has been amazing.  Everyone has made us feel like we are the only clients they have.  They have made us feel important.  I called the office late one night and the office was closed. The next day someone called and said there was a missed call from this number. I thought that was customer service at its finest.  Thank you!”

Class of 2021 – Parent – Soccer
“So far, Lindsay has been helpful, patient and clear about this whole process.  It's a little overwhelming getting involved in athletic recruitment process and she has taken some of the anxiety away. She suggested some great ways to improve her performance in play while critiquing Emily’s video clips.  It's always helpful for an athlete to hear these things from a coach rather than a parent.”

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Soccer
“My coach is great! He gave me awesome feedback and made me feel like my goals were in reach. He also gave me a lot of pointers that will help in the long run. Overall, NCSA is a great way to get help with anything you need about the college process.” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Soccer
“I gave this score because with the two recruiters I have talked to have been super helpful with what they had to say with the process of recruitment for college. I really enjoy this website a lot. It has helped me get recognized by a lot of colleges. I find NCSA very helpful for college recruitment.” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Soccer
“The coaches stay in contact with you and are with you every step of the way. You can see what coaches look at you, follow you, and what college they are from. They have videos to tell you what to do to get recruited and you can call or email coaches whenever you have a question. They make it their main priority to find you the perfect college.”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Soccer
“NCSA is excellent in keeping up with the athletes. The coaches are always willing to help you find the perfect school for you. It's easy to keep in touch with coaches from college, and the recruiting coaches on here. I highly recommend NCSA to anyone looking to play sports at the collegiate level.” 

Class of 2020 – Parent – Soccer
“We have a fantastic recruiting coach. Lindsey understands the challenge first-hand as she has lived it. Lindsey works and communicates well with my daughter. The support is on point and relevant to the current stage of recruitment. This in turn inspires my daughter to continue the hard work. Thanks Lindsay and NCSA.” 

Class of 2018 – Parent – Soccer
“NCSA has been a huge help with getting myself and my daughter educated on the recruiting process. Every time we have reached out to NCSA with questions or concerns, they have been there to assistant every step of the way, [Recruiting Coach] Emily especially. She has followed up with us on my daughter's progress and helped her get connected with coaches. Without signing up for NCSA, I honestly would be lost and not know how to help my daughter get to the next level.  Definitively worth the investment for my daughter’s future.” 

Class of 2018 – Parent – Soccer
“Everyone at NCSA has been extremely helpful and supportive from day one. Without the tools made available to us, we definitely would have had a tougher time knowing what to do, who was recruiting our daughter, etc. Everything that we needed was made so much easier with NCSA. Emily has been a huge part of us having a successful process. She was always available to answer questions and provide guidance. We truly learned a lot about the recruiting process as the result of signing up for NCSA and received 100% more exposure.”

Class of 2020 – Student-Athlete – Soccer
“NCSA has been extremely helpful with encouraging me to pursue soccer in university. They have shown me every option for levels of playing, types of schools and also helped guide me in regard to my academic achievements. Before I was a part of NCSA, I wasn’t aware of all the details that came along with the recruitment process. Now that I am more educated in the process, I am able to pick out which schools are more appropriate for me and fit my needs the best.” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Soccer
“Everyone that we have had contact with have been very informative and helpful. Our coach has given us good direction and where we need to be and what we need to do to get there. NCSA will be a great tool to help our son find the right fit at a college to obtain his degree and be able to play soccer.” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Soccer
“Having Coach Angelo working with us has been a great improvement!  Overall, his communications are timely and relevant (not too often, not too little, texts that are quick and to the point, and phone conversations that are relevant to what is actually going on with Noah.)  He also seems more knowledgeable about DI athletics and players in the US Soccer Development Academy system.  During our recent Coaching Session, we had a number of questions for Coach Angelo regarding the particulars of Noah's recruiting process at this point.  He provided honest answers and offered some very useful tips and information that have already garnered positive results.  I gave an 8 score for our experience with NCSA at this time because the recruiting process is not yet complete.  We'll see how it goes from now until when Noah commits, and the recruiting process is finalized.  Keep up the good work NCSA!” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Soccer
“So far, we've been very pleased with all of the NCSA coaches we've interacted with, as well as the amazing resources available to us.  Since it is still very early in the process, I am looking for long term consistency in top-notch performance from NCSA.  I see no reason the score won't improve as time passes and NCSA earning a "10" score once our son gets recruited.   After all, that is why we are making this investment.  Thank you and keep up the wonderful work you are all doing with this program!” 

Class of 2020 – Student-Athlete – Soccer
“The recruiting coaches are always there to help you. I really can't think of many things that I don't like about NCSA. NCSA is a fantastic website that I have already recommended to some of my friends.” 

Class of 2020 – Parent – Soccer
“So far, NCSA has been a good resource. It makes sense that an agency would try to pair athletes with colleges. My interactions with NCSA have been positive. Recently, I spoke with Marco Lobo who is my son's NCSA coach. He offered guidance and advice on how to get his profile noticed more. He also showed us some tools on the website that allow us to learn more about schools that may be a good fit for him. Overall, NCSA has been good. No promises, but they are providing resources and opening doors for us that I was not sure how to open. Plus, lots of good info about how the recruiting process works. No regrets. Looking forward to learning more.” 

Class of 2020 – Parent – Soccer
“Navigating the recruitment process is very complex on your own. NCSA offers an efficient mechanism for pairing up athletes and schools. We are highly satisfied. No promises have been made, but a plan is in place and we know what we need to do. A good idea for a serious athlete.” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Soccer
“Coach Keegan Moyer has been a tremendous help to us during the college recruiting process.  Anytime we send an email with a question, we get a very prompt and thorough reply.  Whenever we have asked to do a call, he is available and gives us as much time as we need. We had a terrific call with him tonight discussing the best way to create a highlight tape.  I would highly recommend NCSA to other student athletes.” 

Class of 2020 – Parent – Soccer
“We have found NCSA to be a very effective tool in that it has guided us in creating and effectively managing our son's online athletic/academic "resume". We've been successful in getting his profile in front of the correct coaches, proactively sharing his event information with them, and following up and remaining in contact with them going forward. We've found that putting in the work on the recruit's side does in fact pay off with very tangible results and opportunities. We look forward to continuing to utilize NCSA in our son's exploration of college athletic and academic opportunities.” 

Class of 2020 – Parent – Soccer
“We are still building my son's profile on NCSA. We haven't taken the next step yet in terms of completing his video and actively reaching out to coaches.  We are 90% there and hope to have the video in the next week or so. Once we do, and then proceed further into the process, we'll be better able to rate the overall experience at that time. That said, everything has been great so far and we are very excited to continue to move forward.”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Soccer
“Still early in the process but so far, everyone has been very accommodating and helpful!  We love the service.  Hoping it will be a fruitful experience for Celeste - she's always wanted to play in college, but we have not lived close enough or had the means for her to play in a large, expensive club who had connections. NCSA, this far, has been a great resource.” 

Class of 2017 – Parent – Soccer
“You guys have been so great to keep in contact with us.  Bailey gets busy with other stuff and isn't as focused as I would like, but you seem to know how to prod and push her just enough that she doesn't feel pressure, but excitement.  You have been great.  She is excited about going to college.”

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Soccer
“Without the help of NCSA, I would have absolutely no idea how to go about this process. I am very grateful for the information and help that I have received. The coaching I was given on how to talk to the coaches and what questions to ask taught me so much. All the resources that NCSA provides me with is also very helpful. Being able to contact almost any coach and any school is incredibly helpful. Also, knowing what schools are viewing my profile is very cool to see. I am very appreciative and would definitely recommend NCSA to my teammates.” 

Class of 2020 – Parent – Soccer
“I've already recommended NCSA to a few athletes’ parents who did not know of NCSA.  First and foremost, the attention given during and after our interview was more than expected.  The user-friendly website and contacts from coaches are encouraging.  And lastly, the video compilation is a huge advantage. Thank you so much!” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Soccer
“[Recruiting Coach] Keegan Moyer's level of service is the reason for the high score. There isn't a question he can't answer, or a scenario he's unfamiliar with.  He's always friendly, personable and available, and knows how to ask probing questions of his athletes...even the shy ones who don't talk much. He returns texts, emails and phone calls immediately and leaves families feeling inspired about the future and how he'll help them get there.” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Soccer
“Every person I have talked to from this organization has been super helpful and understanding of my goals for my future. They have guided me to what I need to do to accomplish creating my future as a college soccer player. I have only been signed up with NCSA for a couple months, and I can already tell everyone has my best interest.” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Soccer
“Emily has been the perfect support for Skylar on her journey to play soccer in the US.  Helping Skylar navigate and become comfortable with the process and speaking to coaches has been invaluable!  Her advice and expertise on her soccer club experience and the recruiting process from emails to visits through to the final decisions has been exactly what our daughter needed.” 

Class of 2020 – Parent – Soccer
“As a parent of a student athlete who is interested in playing her sport in college, I need help with the process. We do not know where to start, who to talk to, what needs to be said. I am thankful and appreciative to have the opportunity to receive this support and guidance as we move forward to help Erin achieve her goal. Lindsay is knowledgeable and we have felt her enthusiasm and genuine interest regarding Erin and her future. Thank you!” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Soccer
“I signed up for NCSA as a freshman. I had no idea what I was looking for in a college, or what different types of colleges there were. Now as a sophomore, I have learned so much more about the recruiting process and everything else. I would definitely recommend NCSA to any friend that wants to be a college athlete.” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Soccer
“Our son started the recruiting process early, during his freshman year.  Mostly, it was for our family's reference to research colleges and for him to get a feel for the process.  NCSA was always there to answer questions and explain circumstances particular to our son's situation.   Now that Noah is approaching his junior year next fall, he is starting to get more serious coach attention and follows.  This is exciting!  The thing NCSA is really doing well at this time is sending the weekly Coach Activity Reports.  Life gets busy and sometimes a several days may go by before anyone checks the NCSA website, so this getting a weekly update motivates us all.   Thanks for all the good work you're doing!”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Soccer
“You provide valuable information, visibility, access to information and requirements.  Someone is always there to contact for questions and assistance.  While some families may have experience with the process, others, like ourselves have little to no experience and will gladly admit that.  We are appreciative of this service and all that it offers to assist in this process.”

Class of 2021 – Student-Athlete – Soccer
“I would definitely recommend NCSA to another athlete who dreams of becoming a collegiate athlete because of how many connections NCSA has. The amount of coaches, schools, and opportunities NCSA has given to me is amazing. NCSA has helped further my recruiting process by so much and has really put me out there. The amount of service that NCSA offers is so convenient. From the start, different trainers have helped me set up my profile step by step, making it easier to take important online classes about the recruiting world. I don’t think I would be here now on my recruiting career if it weren’t for NCSA. I would definitely want another athlete to experience NCSA as well as I have.” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Soccer
“[Recruiting Coach] Emily has done a great job of staying in contact with us. It also helps that Emily is a former keeper and our daughter is also.  Keepers are a different breed. So, Emily knows what Brynne is going thru.  Emily has also been very good at responding in a timely manner when questions were needed to be asked. We have never experienced the recruiting process before, so she has made it easier to understand. I would highly recommend NCSA to anyone looking to get a college scholarship.”
