UDA’s last recruitment event for the 2019 class takes place in Allen, Texas, March 8th to 10th. This event will wrap up the cycle of recruitment events that has seen UDA staff travel to Nashville TN, Phoenix, AZ, and Lakewood Ranch, Florida. To date, the events have attracted over 60 plus prospects with 20 plus expected in Dallas next week.
Director of Recruitment, Coach Reilly stated, “The recruitment events across the country have shown what is attractive for the US student, the soccer programs’ quality speaks for itself, it is the quality of the academic program and the student experience that is attracting students and families to the program.”
Reilly, added, " Families like the integrated life on campus, the wide options of majors, the outstanding welfare support and of course the fact that students are not just coming to a soccer program. They are getting the width and breadth of what a student athlete experience should be. A fully integrated experience across all levels. Not to mention the three year degree program for qualified students that offers a huge saving to families.”
The event in Allen, Texas will see UDA staff from locations across the USA fly to Dallas for the event. Katy Davenport from the University of Chester’s international office will also be jetting into the event. The event covers all the aspects of the UDA program as well as the academic opportunities that exist at Chester, one of Britain’s finest universities located in a world class city.
Former collegiate coach, Mike “Mac” McBride, the latest addition to the UDA recruitment staff, will be at the event. We will also welcome Eddie Puskarich, from the Texas Spurs Soccer Club one of the USA's premier clubs, to the event. Prospects are coming from 11 different states to attend the event.
