The National Collegiate Scouting Association (NCSA) was founded in 2000 by Chris Krause, a former full-ride scholarship football player at Vanderbilt University, with a two-pronged mission: To provide a means for college coaches at every level to find the recruits best suited for their programs and to educate high school student athletes and their families about the college recruiting process.
Since 2000, NCSA has quickly grown to be the leading provider of college sports recruiting technology, data and education for more than 35,000 college coaches and over 200,000 of the nation's top prospects.

Four Fundamental Spring Soccer Recruiting Responsibilities from www.ncsasports.org
There are some key recruiting responsibilities for every season. No matter where you are in the process, stay on top of them! It's never too early to get ahead and until you sign on that line, it's never too late to fall behind.
Freshmen & Sophomores
• TARGET areas of your game that need improvement
• RECORD your games and keep the footage in an archive (if you're not already!)
• FIND five schools at each division level where you would like to play
• CALL three or more coaches to start getting on their radar
• PREPARE for personal letters and phone calls from coaches - depending on the sport, this has started or will start soon
• REGISTER for camps this summer - especially camps run by the coaches contacting you
• TAKE or retake the SAT or ACT if you haven't already - you have to take it to play in college, and a good score will help you get recruited
• PLAN unofficial visits to schools you are interested in
• EXAMINE the financial aid packages you have been offered - appeal them if they are low
• SIGN your letter of intent or accept your financial aid package, depending on your division
• TRAIN so you're in top shape for your first year as a college athlete
• ENJOY your recruiting success and get ready for the next level
