The Recruiting Process

Our goal in the recruiting process is to find top-level players who fit our culture as young women committed to growth, doing the right thing at all times, and meet the university and team’s academic standards. It is an important process for both you as a student/athlete and for us as we try to help you make the best possible decision.  Here are some suggestions to help you in the process:

Make a visit to campus. You can schedule a visit through the admissions website by following this link, https://uttyler.askadmissions.net/Portal/EI/Search. Once you have made an appointment to tour campus make sure to send Coach Cronan an email (ccronan@uttyler.edu) so she can set up an opportunity for you to meet with on campus advising, players and coaches.

Make a trip to see us play. It is very helpful to get an idea of what the level and speed of play is like, as well as our team’s style and family environment surrounding the game. See the following link for our schedule: http://www.uttylerpatriots.com/wsoccer/schedule/.

Make a highlight tape. We cannot make it out to all tournaments and games as much as we would like to.  So sending us a quick highlight video can help us in evaluating your ability to play at UT Tyler.
