January 2013: MSC Hosts College Coaches Panels

 The Manhattan Soccer Club hosted a pair of College Soccer Panels at Goddard Riverside Community Center, on the evenings of January 22 (Women's soccer) and January 23 (Men's soccer).  The Club Director of Coaching, Ray Selvadurai, served as Panel Moderator for both evenings, and MSC Associate Director of Coaching, Jason Weisberg, assisted Ray on the first evening (Women). 

The Panel included some of the Northeast's leading collegiate soccer coaches, comprised of a wide variety of groups; both Men's and Women's programs, from Division 1 Colleges and Universities, Division 2, Division 3, and Junior Colleges.  The discussion touched on a broad list of items, relative to the process of recruitment for placement in a College soccer program that is appropriate for both academics and soccer participation.
