More than 75,000 student-athletes play soccer on nearly 3,000 teams at the college level. It is the second largest college sport, trailing only football, in terms of the number of athletes participating annually, making it an integral part of not only soccer in the United States but also college athletics in general.
With college soccer now in full swing, headed into the weekend we wanted to provide a look at the resources available online to help you get the most out of the season. If we have missed anything please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get it added.
Here are a list of resources to help you in following all of the college soccer action:
College Scoreboard on Top Drawer Soccer is your one stop source for DI through NJCAA scores. The scoreboard has lots of features including sorting by conference, looking at school schedules and more.
NCAA Women's Scoreboard - Scores for NCAA Women's DI - DIII

College soccer stats can also be found at:
Here are some recommended websites for college soccer news and feature stories:
Top Drawer Soccer - A great website for American soccer coverage in general, they really excel in their rankings and features highlighting college soccer players at their best.
Soccer America's College Soccer Reporter - Soccer America does a great job with their college soccer newsletter that you can subscribe to for free and their overall coverage.
CollegeSoccerNews.com - I honestly don't know a lot about this site but it's men's DI soccer only focused and appears to have a lot of good content, including team and players rankings, recruiting, awards and more.
D3soccer.com - Here is the site for everything that you need for DIII college soccer. The site features news, awards, rankings, scores and more. There are more athletes at the DIII level than any other level and there are some great teams and players worth following.
HERO Sports - I discovered this site when working on this post and searching for some DII coverage. They cover DI - DIII for soccer, football, volleyball and basketball. The appear to be one of only a few sites doing much on the DII level. It's worth checking out.
Goal Nation - Primarily a youth soccer website, they do provide some college soccer coverage of the west coast.
Soccer News Net - Very good regional coverage in a number of pockets around the country.
Soccer Wire - Extensive coverage of soccer in the Mid-Atlantic region.
NAIA.org - Nearly 400 teams and more than 10,000 athletes compete at the NAIA level across the country.
NJCAA.org - More than 400 teams and 8,500 athletes compete at the NJCAA level. NJCAA.org is the best resource for coverage of these programs and athletes.
ESPNW - A great resource for women's sports in general, they do a fair amount of coverage of women's DI college soccer.
Finding college soccer on TV or online has never been easier with ESPN3, Big Ten Network, SEC Network and PAC-12 being just a few of the broadcasters covering the sport. Additionally, most large schools are now covering all of their games online and on local sports networks. Information on the local coverage can usually be easily found on the school's athletics website.
LiveSoccerTV - The best but not comprehensive resource to see what's on TV and online.
Soccer America - They also provide an online and newsletter resource to help you find games that are being broadcast.
