What are my options after graduating from a USA Soccer Scholarship?
Ok, so you have spent the last 4 years playing on a USA Soccer Scholarship; you love playing soccer and was hoping to become a professional but it hasn’t quite happened yet. Well, Don’t worry, all the consultants at Soccer Smart have been there and we are best placed to offer you the best available options so that you can keep progressing your soccer career.
What are your options?
Master's Degree (Graduate Soccer Assistant)
Of course, you can continue your soccer career in the USA on a further scholarship which may mean that you can have part or all of your Master's Degree paid and in turn you will assist the Head Coach as a Graduate Assistant coach. This is a great option for anyone looking to pursue a career as a soccer coach. However, for those that have completed their USA soccer scholarship and have decided that education is not for you anymore and all you want to do is keep playing then great! We can help.
Although many people want to continue playing soccer full time, sometimes the reality is harsh and we all need to pay bills. Therefore, using your hard earned degree to start you off in the working life, for some; it isn’t such a bad idea!
Playing soccer abroad (RECOMMENDED!!)
So, maybe you are a USA citizen and you have just graduated with your Soccer Scholarship in the USA or you are an international student that has been studying your degree abroad in the USA for the last 4 years. Either way the option to go and play football in another country other than the USA is something you could definitely consider! The chance to ply your trade as a soccer player and use it to travel to countries such as Australia, New Zealand, England, Spain, Gibraltar and many more, is something right on the top of your list of things to do when you graduate.
