Pre-College Development Academy (PCDA), the premier post-high school residential soccer academy in the United States, is thrilled to announce a game-changing partnership with FirstPoint USA, the world’s leading sports scholarship and university admissions service. This powerhouse collaboration paves the way for even more talented athletes to secure their dream college soccer futures.
FirstPoint USA brings unparalleled expertise and support, having guided over 60,000 student-athletes across 182 countries onto college rosters. This invaluable partnership significantly strengthens PCDA’s commitment to holistic player development, encompassing both on-field excellence and seamless navigation of the college admissions process.
Hot off their record-breaking year, boasting the most college signings and a prestigious UPSL league title in PCDA history, the academy is poised for further growth. Expansion plans are underway for key cities across the US, including Atlanta, GA, Charlotte, NC, and Denver, CO, offering even more access to PCDA’s proven path to collegiate success.
“The goal of PCDA,” states Ryan Hodgson, CEO and Academy Director, “is to empower student-athletes to achieve their collegiate soccer aspirations. While landing a roster spot is a crucial step, securing substantial playing time as a freshman presents a significant challenge. PCDA bridges that gap, nurturing ‘late developers’ and transforming them into confident, game-ready assets for their future teams.”
PCDA’s comprehensive training program, combined with FirstPoint USA’s unparalleled admissions guidance, creates a winning formula for athletes seeking competitive Division I, II, III and NAIA opportunities. This groundbreaking partnership signifies a new era for PCDA, propelling their mission to equip every player with the tools and expertise they need to thrive on and off the field.
“We are delighted to be announcing this exciting new partnership with PDCA and looking forward to supporting players with their collegiate soccer aspirations. Ryan and his team do a fantastic job and we are committed to enhancing their service through our experience within the industry and helping more student-athletes realise their potential.” added Andrew Kean, CEO and Founder of FirstPoint USA.
