In its first two recruitment events of the year, the UDA soccer academy has attracted a number of prospects from across the USA looking for enrollment in fall 2019. With the Phoenix event concluding just yesterday and the Nashville event a few weeks ago, an excellent group of prospects has emerged. The events are the first steps in the enrollment process and can lead to a life changing opportunity as two of our present students recently tweeted out.

Austin Lampe and Jayson Phoebus who both attended the Phoenix recruitment event last year and are now presently enrolled in the UDA academy, tweeted out, “ Truly a life changer! Good luck to the boys trying out.” Austin Lampe.
“Good Luck Guys! This is where my life changed forever!” tweeted Phoebus.
UDA now moves its recruitment event across the USA to Lakewood Ranch Florida, from January 1st to 3rd, with its final 2019 recruitment date in Dallas in March 2019.
Director of recruitment Coach Seamus Reilly stated, “Both events in Nashville and Phoenix were very successful and mirrored the success of last year’s events at these locations. We had a good number of students attend and there are going to be some very difficult decisions to make. As the program is focused on the delivery of a quality student experience rather than just recruiting numbers into an academy, enrollment will be even more competitive in 2019.”

Reilly added, “We are always about raising the playing and academic standards, we always look for the best student fit for the academy program – it is more than just finding players.”
Coach Reilly, concluded, “Our recruitment strategy in 2019 will mirror what we did in 2018 as we seek the type of students we enrolled last year. When I met our 2018 recruitment class over our Thanksgiving visit to Chester, it was a proud moment for me and all our staff working in the USA. To see the present students so well connected to their academic studies, engaged in university life, and enjoying the total student experience was reassuring. This was the intent from the very start, to create a unique and differentiated program and our goal is to deliver students in the fall of 2019 that match this focus.”
