Twenty three players coached by Total Futbol and set to graduate from high school in 2020 have committed to play college soccer. The Class of 2020 is the third largest crop of college players produced by Total Futbol since 2012, exceeded only by the Class of 2018 (37 players) and the Class of 2015 (32 players).
Since 2012, 152 players coached by Total Futbol have gone on to play (or have committed to play) soccer in college: 110 athletes for Division I programs and 42 for Division II or III programs. As a point of reference, nationally a mere 2.4% of female high school athletes move on to play DI soccer, and about 4.8% move on to DII or DIII soccer.

The Class of 2020 will play for 19 different institutions contending in 13 athletic conferences across ten states. Many of them will be competing against each other next Fall: three players will take the field for three different teams in the highly competitive Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), two will play for teams in the Ivy League, and three will play on two teams in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC).
"It's always thrilling for us to watch our players take the next step and perform on the college stage," said TF Executive Director Nadir Moumen. "It takes an extraordinary amount of hard work and dedication to make the leap from youth soccer to collegiate soccer and we are beyond proud of these young women. It's been a privilege to work with them."
