College Advisory Program (CAP)

Fire FC provides players and families special events to showcase their talents and abilities to college level coaches and staff. One of the ways we do this is to keep in constant contact and foster ongoing relationships with our network of Division I-III Universities, Junior Colleges, NAIA and Fire FC alumni. We provide meetings with advisers, camps with coaches (College Showcase Camp), and personal assistance to get players and parents in contact with various colleges and their coaches.
