Scholarships can be offered as early as Grade 11.
In most cases, three references are appropriate to send to a coach. Depending on the school and/or the team, you may be required to send in references from three coaches or in some cases you should be prepared to send references from a coach, a Technical Director at your soccer club and a teacher.
This depends on the school and the team. Ask the coach when you make first contact whether they would like to see video footage. Some coaches will ask for a full-length match video as well as highlights. Either way, it is a good idea to ask someone to start filming your games and practice sessions if you are looking to get recruited.
