In combination with the event host EDP Soccer, Brazilian Technical Training will run a training combine for the international players. They will be pre evaluated by college coaches and given a chance to display their abilities at a very high level. This combine will serve as a chance for the college coaches to see the players in training setting which will give the coaches a chance to familiarize themselves with the players they do not get to see on a regular basis.
PHASE 3 COLLEGE SHOWCASE TOURNAMENT
International players will be given a chance to put themselves on the same playing level as the American players looking to be recruited by American Colleges. EDP College Showcases average about 200 coaches from all levels, ranging from Junior Colleges to top Div. 1, 2 and 3 colleges both local and from around the country.
PHASE 4- SELECTION AND RECRUITMENT
Once players are selected by colleges we will work together to build a player portfolio and make sure that we help match the player to a college or university that best suits his soccer and academic abilities. Our program will assure that players have assistance with college visits and guidance with the entire recruiting process. Players will receive help with the following
