FRISCO, Texas (Oct. 21, 2020) — The US Youth Soccer National League is excited to provide free full-game recordings for every one of the December and January National League Showcase Series and National League Playoff events.
Every game in each age group at the National League North Carolina, National League Tampa and National League Sarasota events will be recorded. Recordings will be available within 10 days of the completion of each event and fully viewable online at no cost to players, teams, families or college coaches.
This added feature ensures that college coaches and scouts can view the Showcase and Playoff matchups between teams from various National League Conferences. Most importantly, this enables any college coach — particularly those affected by the NCAA Division I recruiting dead period or any others unable to attend in person — to have the opportunity to view every game from these National League events.
“Our National League events are designed to provide players with as many opportunities as possible, whether it be the actual competition on the field or the chance to take a step forward in their playing careers,” said Marley Wilson, USYS Director of Competitions. “For many of our players, that next stage is college soccer. Given the current climate and the restrictions facing college programs, allowing college coaches to have a free, easy way to view our athletes is imperative. These recordings are also of immense value to our families as players can share their accomplishments and performance with family members who are unable to travel and view the games in-person.”
The National League will contact college coaches directly after each of the December and January events to ensure easy access to the video footage. College coaches can also visit USYouthSoccer.org/collegecoaches, where additional information will be added as it becomes available.
This service from the USYS National League will be provide:
- Complete game footage from 312 games and 208 total teams playing in the 15U - 19U Girls age groups at the National League North Carolina (Dec. 4-7, 2020) event
- Complete game footage from 240 games and 160 total teams playing in the 14U Girls and 14U - 16U Boys age groups at the National League Tampa (Dec. 27-30, 2020) event
- Complete game footage from 240 games and 160 total teams playing in the 17U - 19U Boys age groups at the National League Sarasota (Jan. 15-17, 2021) event
These game recordings are one of three primary college recruiting services available to teams competing at these National League events. National League teams will also have access to Trace — which can deliver personalized game moments for every player — and ScoutingZone — the official digital recruiting software that puts player profiles in front of college coaches.
