You should definitely try to visit schools when you're here (it's along haul so take advantage of being here). Attend the school information session and campus tours. Does she have a highlight video she can send coaches? She should send it to coaches at schools of interest along with a brief bio, info on grades etc. You can find most email addresses on the team pages or do a search on the school search function for the Athletics Depart directory. Start a dialog with coaches early, see if they're interested, then try and set up time to talk when you're on campus. Almost all schools have game footage online so have her watch and see if a school is at a level she can play at (there's multiple levels here). She needs to be realistic about academic and soccer fit.

Thanks will do what you suggested above. There is enough info out there that I can figure out which universities are a good academic fit.

We've been watching a lot of online games and the quality of play in general really drops as you start going down the NCAA rankings. Some teams also have huge rosters. The football fit is a big thing for her. No use going to the US to play a lower level of soccer. If she gets seriously injured or whatever she can always come back and finish her university in Australia.

Yes US rosters are very large for many reasons, and as a result there's a lot of player churn. It is not easy to be an impact player, particularly as a freshman. Finding the right fit is key. If you're looking for D1 or D2 programs she has to be registered with NCAA and there are additional rules for foreign players.

Not at all. I've seen similar on many an invite that was clearly a mass email. If a coach is really interested in you they'll make it more individualized - like "I saw you play on Sat the xth in the FL ECNL event..." Mine has also received a few that say "this event is open to anybody, regardless..."

One thing my son did, which I thought was smart (maybe not) was when he'd get these things he would reply back to the coaches with his bio and short video and flat out ask them if they thought he would be a good fit. A no reply meant "no" because of course they wouldn't outright say it but the message was clear. But he did get quick responses from programs that were interested. Looking at their roster can give you a good sense of fit. If they're all top ECNL or DA clubs and your kid isn't, don't waste your time and money. If they are of a similar background and your player is interested in the school then it may be worth attending. Make sure to contact the coach beforehand with his/her info and have him/her seek out the coach at the event

I agree. That disclaimer would be at the bottom of all emails that are sent from an email account from that university.
