Men's Soccer Prospective Student-Athletes
A CHRISTIAN PROGRAM
Nyack is a Christian college looking for student-athletes who are serious about their faith and have the maturity to handle the high expectations of our program. The foundation of our men's soccer program is set on God as the cornerstone and it is our goal to build an environment of success that will facilitate physical, academic, and spiritual growth that will allow us to minister to the people, teams, faculty, and fellow student-athletes that we will encounter on and off the field.
A GREAT LEVEL OF PLAY
We are looking for players who have a high level of technical, tactical, and athletic ability. We often attract players from all over the world who choose Nyack because of the location in Lower Manhattan, the culture, and the intentionally positive and diverse team chemistry found in our program.
We are close to completing our 2020 recruiting. We have 2 spots left for the Spring.
We finished the majority of our 2020 recruiting. However, we still have a few walk-on spots available.
THE RECRUITING PROCESS
The team is chosen through the recruiting process as opposed to open tryouts when school starts. Therefore, it is important for interested high school student-athletes to understand both the process and the timing. The following are some steps you can take to help in the recruiting process:
1. Contact Us: Fill out our online recruiting form so we will have your information. Then follow up with a personal e-mail to Head Coach Alex Schmidt at [email protected]. Make sure to attach your current High School and/or college transcripts and mention any tournaments and/or showcases you may be participating in.
2. Attend our ID Camp: Due to the current pandemic in the world, there are no plans for a summer ID camp at this time. Circumstances may change and we may decide to have an ID camp later in the summer. We will keep you posted through our social media channels as well as our camp website: https://soccer.nyackcamps.com/
3. Send us Tournament Schedules: If you will be attending one of the tournaments in the right-hand box, then send us your game times, field locations, opponent, and jersey number.
4. Visit Campus: You can get a campus tour, meet with Admissions, and spend time with the coaching staff. Contact our Admissions Office at 212-625-0500 to set up the visit, and be sure to let them know you wish to meet with the coaching staff.
5. Send us Highlights: Although we don't typically offer spots based on video alone, it can sometimes be a good starting place for the recruiting process.
6. Come to a Game: It is of great benefit for you to see us play and get a first-hand look at the level of play, the team's style, and the atmosphere surrounding a game.
We spend the fall, spring, and summer of a player's junior year to identify and evaluate players who we think would be an excellent fit for Nyack--spiritually, academically, and athletically. By November the identification phase of our recruiting process is complete and we begin to offer spots. We have finished our recruiting for the following year as early as November and as late as April, but for the most part it finishes up in the winter.
