OL & NCSA partner to grow access to collegiate recruiting services assisting our families in one of the most difficult periods.

HONOLULU, Hawai’i- Speaking with many families, coaches, and DOC’s, an area that was heavily discussed was College Showcasing and getting our Oahu League student-athletes access to College Scouts. Working with families in identifying schools in both the mainland and Hawaii is quite daunting for coaches and players. After all, we want our Oahu League student-athletes to receive opportunities for higher education and become great citizens.

Addressing the scouting issues affecting OL clubs and their families, the league has partnered with a recruiting giant, Next College Student Athlete ( NCSA has been named the Official Preferred Provider of Recruiting Services for the Oahu League. The Oahu League players will receive discounts on the services provided with this partnership. In the past two years, NCSA has worked with many Oahu League players to assist them and their families in guiding them through the recruiting process.

“This formalizes the arrangement and gives our clubs, coaches, players, and families a reputable resource to utilize. We feel it is important, especially now for the players in the 2021/2022 Grad Years who are missing out on College Showcasing Tournaments, to get that extra help in identifying college programs. Assisting them in achieving their life goals and hopefully allow them to play soccer at the highest levels is something that is extremely important to our member organizations.” Mr. Keem continues “Saving our families time and money was paramount in choosing NCSA as a partner. In Mr. Chris Keeney and NCSA, we have partnered with someone whose personal touch along with the resources of NCSA will deliver outstanding results for our Oahu League Student Athletes.”
