Director of Recruitment, Coach Seamus Reilly has been pleased with the initial response to our recruitment efforts from prospective student/athletes from around the country.
Reilly has been inundated with requests about the UDA-IASA academy program. Coach Reilly stated, “So far we have had over 132 soccer bio’s completed from prospects for the 2018 class – we’ve had several complete the academic application too.”
Reilly stated, further, “ Registration for the first UDA-IASA soccer recruitment event is trending strong even though we are still over seven weeks away from our first recruitment event in Nashville, TN. We have students flying in from as far away as Virginia, Seattle and California for this specific event. This shows the quality and opportunity of what UDA-IASA soccer has to offer.”
Reilly also stated, “We also have students visiting the University of Chester campus and meeting staff as they look closely at the value and opportunity we have to offer.”
Reilly, concluded, “I have been in the collegiate game for close to 20 years and what is proving attractive is not just the top class quality of our UEFA “A” licensed coaching staff for every student, from top to bottom, but the academic quality we have put together. We have students seeking placement with us who are interested in the humanities, arts and the sciences. A truly academically diverse group who being immersed into true university culture with other students at multiple levels is proving attractive.”
