College Assistance

In line with our vision to be the most comprehensive and successful development platform in the central Virginia region, Richmond United provides college recruiting assistance to all of our High School aged players. Each player will receive a copy of the Richmond United College Recruiting Handbook, as well as receive access to SportsRecruits, which serves as our central database for all things related to the college recruiting process.

SportsRecruits - We partnered with SportsRecruits to provide Richmond United players, coaches, and parents with a central college recruiting hub. With SportsRecruits, and under the guidance of a Richmond United coach, players will: 

  • Maintain a basic profile that will serve as their "soccer resume"
  • Send and receive communication with college coaches
  • Post highlight videos and game film - **Each Richmond United player receives a free, professional grade highlight video from SportsRecruits**
  • Create, categorize, and prioritize targets lists of schools
  • See which college coaches are viewing their profiles and videos
  • Track progress with schools of interest

College Recruiting Manual - The college recruiting manual provides detailed information and guidance on the most important aspects of college recruiting, which include: 

  • What college coaches look for
  • Emailing and calling college coaches
  • Creating, categorizing, and prioritizing your target list of schools
  • Creating a highlight video
  • Recruiting timelines
