Default Ivy League Women’s Soccer Insight

Does anyone have some insight or info about the various Ivy League teams? Similarities and differences? Coaching styles? Happy players?

Everyone is miserable. The kids really wanted to play at an Academic D3 but their ridiculous parents made them play Ivy just so they could type D1 on TS. The kids know what’s best for them and it really stinks how they are “owned” by a D1 program and have to seriously consider how to fit internships and study abroad into their experience. Shoulda gone NESCAC

Funny. NESCACS are on the table too but there is an entire thread discussing them so I was looking for more info about the Ivies. The more info the better when trying to decide where to go to school!

Yale’s soccer coach resigned then got embroiled in that bribery scam. That program needs to regain its footing with their new coach.

How old is your kid? 2020-2021’s are mostly locked up at Ivies. If your kid is rising soph then you need to get on radars pretty soon.

Good news is that ivies have brought in new coaches at several programs over the past few years, and the league is as competitive as ever. Over the past couple of years, every program has had a fighting chance for an Ivy title deep into the year , except for Cornell. Many of the teams have reason to be optimistic going into this season, as the top program over the past few years may struggle to score.

2022. But how can the rising junior 2021s be locked up at Ivies? The 2021s at our hs don’t even take the SATs until junior year. Especially after the admissions scandal at Yale, don’t the recruits have to wait to get past the admissions committee and get a likely letter (earliest is Oct.1 of senior year, for a likely letter, isn’t it? Sorry I guess I know even less than I thought about Ivies!

For boys, the Ivies are absolutely not "locked up" for the 2021's. I thought the girls' timeline was going to start mirroring the boys', though perhaps the girls' timeline this year is a holdover from before the rule change.
