Make the Right Choice
For many families, college represents a milestone in the parent child relationship, independence, leaving home, management of one’s time, financial responsibility all come as part of the entry into the college environment. For many soccer families when their child is going off to college they will have been involved in the game for up to 14 years. The player and the family will have developed a love of the game that is likely to stay with them for the rest of their lives and they will have dedicated thousands of hours to what we all know to be the beautiful game.
As part of Team Colors and Xara’s acknowledgement of this commitment to the game, we offer the College Selextion Program. This program is for families with the aspiration of providing their child the best possible college experience.The program is designed to assist in the difficult and expensive selection process that for many families is one of the most stressful periods of their family life.
