College Recruitment Program

Blues FC has a strong record of placing athletes on collegiate teams. Our focus is on matching the player with the best possible college for that player, both as an athlete and as a student.

We understand that navigating the college recruiting process can be an overwhelming and confusing experience. Both the NCAA and NAIA have many rules that college programs and players must adhere to. That is why we have assembled a team with vast recruitment and placement experience to assist our athletes and their families through this process.
