29th of March 2014 is a date with destiny for many footballers in Nigeria who are looking for scholarship opportunity to continue their education in the USA. Then I should advice you on this one:  ‘Don’t fail to be at GreenSprings school Lekki Lagos on the above mentioned day.

This is the venue where Global College Placements (GCP) will be holding its first USA College Soccer Assessment Day in Lagos Nigeria, and you wouldn’t want to miss out on this.

EVENT: USA College Soccer Assessment Day In Lagos Nigeria
DATE: 29th March 2014
VENUE: GreenSprings Lekki

This is a great opportunity for Nigerian student footballers to be assessed of their suitability for gaining an Athletic  scholarship into one of the 1,500 colleges and universities that GCP partners with in the USA. Ranging from Harvard and Yale to 2 year community colleges.

Every participant will be properly assessed on that day to:
·         Determine your Soccer ability
·         Quantify your school grades
·         Determine your scholarship value
·         Accurately advice you on your best options
·         Provide vital Information e.g the cost of ‘getting there’
·         Provide phone and email advice for you and your parents.

This assessment is so vital because it will determine whether you will either gain a full scholarship or other wise.
All the games will be videoed as part of your assessment documentation and be distributed to all college and university soccer coaches that GCP partners with in USA.
Indeed, some USA college soccer coaches will be in attendance on the assessment day.

On Skype chat with Ray Curan, the project  co-coordinator, he said, “Colleges in the USA are very eager to get Nigerian students over on scholarship because of the athletic nature of the players and the history of high academic achievements.”

“Although, they are very wary of how to proceed and see us as great conduit for them to get the best possible players. I am happy to say that the average cost last year for each student to cover tuition, room and board was $4.500 and 30% of my student footballers received full scholarship. Says Curan.

Here in their Nigerian office at 2A Raymond Njoku Street, Ikoyi Lagos, GCP country manager, Kurtis Adigba said, “We’re working round the clock to put things in place and to make it easy for more student footballers around Nigeria to participate. We have gone the extra mile to see what affordable hotels around the venue where participants from outside Lagos state could lodge for a night ot two for the assessment.”

However, interested student footballers who would like to partake in the assessment should go to the website:  and fill in the evaluation form as well as contact GCP office before making the trip to Lekki Lagos.
