About Us

Omega Select is committed to providing maximum exposure of Student-Athletes, regardless their location, to college coaches and National Recruiters. We do so by inviting players to play with Omega Select teams in Top-Level College Showcase Tournaments in North America. We also organize International matches and International Showcase Camps where talented and dedicated players can showcase and learn how to better showcase their talent with and against their best National and International counterparts.

Our Select Program is, somewhat, an extension of what hometown teams offer to their Student-Athletes and most of today's online college placement services. Our Student-Athletes receive the most complete service for less. First, we offer in-depth scouting and high level coaching to our Student-Athletes on the soccer field. This allows them to flourish and reach their soccer objectives regardless of in what league or of the tournaments in which their hometown team is planning to play. Second, we help our Student-Athletes in the step-by-step process necessary to be eligible academically and athletically for college scholarships.

Service

1.   Help Student-Athletes and Parents in tracking of the rules as it pertains to NCAA (DI, DII & DIII), NAIA, Junior Colleges and Boarding Schools.

3.   Student-Athletes and Parents receive educated information on the recruiting process and a realistic analysis of the division to which the Student-Athletes can realistically expect to be recruited.

4.   Matching Student-Athletes with programs or coaches who could help them progress or play at the next level: for example at the National team level.

5.   Guidance on how to maximize Student-Athletes chance of athletic or academic scholarship money from schools.
