COLLEGE CORNER



LMSC has a long history of producing college soccer players. In an effort to continue this tradition, LMSC hired Dan Mouw in January 2016 to the new position of Director of Coaching for High School Age Teams. Dan coaches in LMSC and is also the head coach for the Eastern University women's team. Dan has been coaching at the college level for over 10 years. Dan's job as DOC will be to work with our teams who have high school players and ensure that they are doing what is necessary for players to be able to be seen by college coaches.

In addition to hiring Dan, the club has created this College Corner website page to provide information which will be useful to older LMSC players who are considering playing in college in future years. This page was created in February 2016 and will grow a lot throughout 2016 and beyond.

Dan will be writing periodic articles for our older players. These articles will be e-mailed to the players and posted at this site. Articles that will be posted here will discuss:

  • How and when to initiate contact with college coaches
  • Determining the appropriate level college programs
  • Putting together a biography page which will be useful to coaches
  • Helping prospective college players to create a video for college coaches
  • Summer camps
  • Academics requirements to be accepted by college programs


Dan has been a head coach at the college level. As a result, he has made many connections with men's coaches and women's coaches at the NCAA Division 1, 2 and 3 levels. LMSC has numerous other coaches in the travel team program that have coached at the college level who will be available to help players connect with college coaches.

Dan will also be working with the coaches of our high school age teams to ensure that they are going to tournaments which will be attended by coaches who will be interested in seeing our players.


Players (and their families) who aspire to play at the college level often find it difficult to properly initiate contact with college coaches. They sometimes do not know what is an appropriate level of play for them. They also have difficulty figuring what colleges would be a good fit for them based on the level of play in soccer, academic level, possible majors offered, geographic preferences, social life, etc.
