NH ODP College Night

The New Hampshire Soccer Association Olympic Development Program will be hosting a “College Showcase” event on Wednesday evening May 30th at the Northeast Athletic Club in Pembroke, NH (see directions below).  New Hampshire and New England collegiate coaches are being invited to meet and scout/recruit the top players in New Hampshire, and to share information about their programs in support of youth soccer and the Olympic Development Program in our state.

The evening will consist of two specific events.  The first event will be a College Workshop at 5:30 pm, where local Division I, II and III coaches will speak about the college recruiting process and what college coaches are looking for from players and families.  The workshop will conclude with an open forum for questions from the players and families.  

The second event of the evening is the College Showcase Friendlies.  NH ODP is proud to host the college showcase event and invites all the college coaches who attended the workshop to stay and observe the older NH ODP teams as they host Maine ODP.  The matches kickoff at 6:30 PM and will feature Girl's and Boy's U16 & 17, Maine ODP vs. NH ODP.  

NH ODP recognizes per NCAA Guidelines that Division 1 coaches cannot have off-campus recruiting contact with any high school junior prior to July 1st, and that prior to that date they can only present general recruiting information for educational purposes, and within that cannot present or refer specifically to their college or program to high school juniors or younger.  Also prior to July 1st Division 1 coaches can share camp information, but can only share general information about their College and cannot distribute media guides or sport-specific information to high school juniors or younger.
The goal of the event is to attain representation and support from every college or university soccer program in the state of New Hampshire (and several of our ODP Staff are also collegiate coaches, and we are also extending this invitation to any college soccer programs in New England as well), and to foster support and scouting/recruiting opportunities for our NH ODP players.  The full schedule for the evening will be as follows:
