ORLANDO, Fla. – Feb. 3, 2016 – Orlando City Youth Soccer (OCYS) today recognized nearly 40 of its student-athletes, as each player officially announced their university of choice for the 2016 Fall season during NCAA National Signing Day.

The annual National Signing Day ceremony, hosted by OCYS, marked the third consecutive year in which over 30 Orlando City male and female players officially committed to various colleges across the United States, including schools such as Rollins College, the University of Miami, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and many others.

Additionally, several more players are expected to commit to Universities in the coming months – showcasing the Club’s continued emphasis on player development and college placement.

“We couldn’t be prouder of each player who pledged their commitments today, as it takes an incredible amount of hard work and dedication to get to the next level,” said OCYS Girls’ Academy Director Alan Hough. “From a Club perspective, we’re pleased with the number of players who have signed with various colleges today. To have nearly 40 players on National Signing Day for the third year in a row displays that OCYS is fully focused on not only preparing players for the professional level, but also for the collegiate ranks as well. We look forward to building on this for many years to come.”
