Corpus Christi FC Academy recognizes that the primary goal of many of our players is to play collegiate level soccer. Our partnership with Global Premier Soccer (GPS) provides us a very efficient means of achieving this goal. The GPS College Placement Program aims to provide our players with the guidance, tools and encouragement they need to make this goal a reality. All corpus Christi FC Academy players of college age have access to the College Placement Program.

Our philosophy has always been to help our players find the “right fit” for them both on and off the field and to encourage our players to “own” the process as much as possible.

Starting in Fall 2018, GPS has realigned the structure for the GPS College Placement Program in order to increase accountability at all levels.  

The CPP is aimed primarily at the players in the U15-18 age brackets within the club as these will be the most important years for our student-athletes to fully understand what is necessary for them to be doing in order to be as successful as possible in ascertaining what they want from the placement process.  There will be many levels of support throughout the GPS college placement process which are listed below:

  • GPS College Seminar Nights – GPS host annual seminars for all high school aged players providing key info on the college recruiting process – we will aim to have GPS alumni and College Coaches present at these meetings to answer questions from our student-athletes and parents.
  • College Showcase Tournaments – The GPS calendar provides players appropriate competitive showcase competition including our Memorial Day and Thanksgiving events, as well as a diverse competitive calendar to try and give our players the ability to be seen by college coaches as much as possible.
  • GPS College Connections and Credibility – GPS is an established leader in the USA and has placed over 800 players in collegiate programs
  • Global Premier Scholarships – For student-athletes and families who want a more extensive personal college process program.  
  • Access to SportsRecruits – the best in show platform gives GPS players the ability to be accountable for their entire college placement process.  GPS has entered a relationship with SportsRecruits that will benefit all our players are they work towards making their final decision on which school to attend.

The goal of the GPS College Placement Program is to educate, support and encourage all GPS student-athletes as they work their way through their first major life decision.
