Developing Champions for Life!


The Loudoun Advantage: The College Pathway

Loudoun Soccer's commitment to developing champions for life--on and off the field--begins on our Player Development Pathway, which offers players of all ages and abilities the opportunity to enjoy the Beautiful Game.

For some, their Pathway may include college-level play! To assist these elite players, the Club offers multiple resources to help players and their families navigate the college placement process.   Director of College Placement Dave Bucciero and the Loudoun Soccer coaching staff enjoy a long-standing track record of success in promoting players for post-High School play. Players seeking the next level can rely on their experience and expertise to help maximize their opportunities in the selection process.

Check this page for the latest information on the Club's college placement programs and resources. (All college-related virtual meetings  hosted by the Club are also archived on this page.)
