College Program pres. by UMB Bank


The FC Dallas Youth College Preparation Program presented by UMB Bank has been designed to assist the needs of our aspiring collegiate level soccer players, & to provide specifically developed guidance, information & resources that will enable each FCDY player to maximize opportunities to play college or professional soccer, and qualify for scholarships and financial aid. FCDY uses the web-based program “College Fit Finder” as student centered on-line tools. This program provides FCDY players and parents the necessary information to ensure student success. Each player will get a username and password to access the College Fit Finder website. The FC Dallas College Fitbox can be found here.


We will follow a step by step process with FC Dallas Youth players and give them valuable information in the college process. Seminars are held with each grade level to help each student athlete take a proactive role and create an action plan. Additionally, individual family meetings can be set up to ensure that the individual needs are being met and to assist in the process of finding the correct college/university, both academically and athletically.


In June and December of each year, FC Dallas will host a college combine for 15U - 19U boys and girls players. Through training sessions, condition matches, and a college panel discussion, college coaches will provide players with insight to the demands of the college game and recruiting process.
