Twin Cities Soccer Leagues, Minnesota NPL and ScoutingZone announce strategic partnership

January 25, 2021

Twin Cities Soccer Leagues (TCSL)Minnesota NPL, and ScoutingZone are pleased to announce a strategic partnership to provide college recruiting support to its member clubs and teams.

As part of this groundbreaking initiative, TCSL and Minnesota NPL players and clubs will be able to:

  • Provide a seamless way for college coaches to know players’ schedules without having to reach out to individual coaches;
  • Utilize a customizable player profile with a personalized web link to forward to college coaches;
  • Option to print customizable team roster flyers to distribute to scouts;
  • Access newsletters and content that focuses on recruiting education and empowerment for 14-U to 19-U players.
  • Option to use a robust college search function that uses detailed criteria to help every athlete find the best fit;
  • Do much more.

TCSL will leverage Scouting Zones services for the Minnesota NPL league and select events, such as its open State Cup event, Minnesota Cup.

“While the traditional Showcase event certainly has its merits, we also believe that the TCSL league structure can facilitate recruiting opportunities over the course of a season. The Midwest features many fantastic colleges with successful college soccer programs, and we look forward to exposing TCSL players to the opportunity to play beyond their club years.”

– Matt Tiano, Twin Cities Soccer Leagues

“We are delighted to partner with TCSL & the Minnesota NPL,” said Tara Parker, ScoutingZone President & Co-Founder. “Over the years, college coaches have asked us to support more Midwest events. We are excited to do just that and provide the recruiting platform to connect college coaches to TCSL players. There are many college soccer programs in the Midwest yet many youth players have been under represented or educated on opportunities to play at the collegiate level. We are looking forward to providing a pathway to college soccer.”
