College Placement Program
About the program:
Alleycats Soccer Club are very proud to introduce a College Placement Program to begin in Fall 2016. This program leads the way in college preparation and showcasing and preparing the Alleycats player for future opportunities. It is geared towards players in our U15 - U19 age groups with the entire purpose to provide players the opportunities needed to go on and play college soccer.
We believe that the majority of a player’s success will be a result of what happens in training and with that we create an environment for training that resembles college training sessions and fosters an environment that’s competitive, educational and fun. The training will best prepare the player and result in him/her being ready to show well on game day and ultimately being prepared for the college game.
Alleycats SC is committed to helping every player with the desire, ability, and motivation to play college soccer. We believe that there is a good college program for every player who is passionate about the game. Provided that you are a hard working, dedicated soccer player and STUDENT who is committed to training and playing at a high level, our goal is to help you get to college.
Our goal is to graduate every Alleycats player first to college for their education, and then to a school that they can continue to play the game that they love!

College Night 2018
On Wednesday April 11, 2018, the Alleycats Soccer Club hosted over 150 Alleycats players and parents at Shaker Middle School. The night was packed with detailed information for players interested in pursuing soccer in college.
The event included a panel of eight men and women’s college soccer coaches from D1, D2, D3, and JUCO schools and was facilitated by John Ciano, Alleycats Director of Coaching and the College of St. Rose Head Men's Soccer Coach.
Topics and information included student/ player college requirements, preparing for college soccer, player/ coach/ college communications, academics, timing, difference of soccer divisions, opportunities to play and to be evaluated by college coaches, recruiting, choosing the right program, what college coaches are looking for, scholarships, financial aid, applications, College Student/ Athlete Life and more.
The event was an excellent opportunity for Alleycats college bound soccer players to refine their checklist of important action items and to hear first hand advice from college coaches. For our younger Alleycats players it was a great introduction to the process with lots of information that will be necessary once they begin their college search.
Thank you to all of our players and parents who were able to attend, to our professional panel of college coaches, and to Coach John Ciano for this event.
The Alleycats Soccer Club looks forward to providing our Alleycats Families with other beneficial and exciting events.
