Michigan Thunder College Pathway Program

Do you aspire to play at the collegiate level? Are you unsure of what it takes to play at the college level or how to get there? 


At Michigan Thunder, we have created the College Pathway Program, led by Michigan Thunder Director of Coaching and former college player, Justin Makar, to help our players achieve their dream of playing at the collegiate level. 

Throughout the years, a number of former players have continued their soccer career and education at the collegiate level. As a club, we want to be a resource for our players that wish to pursue their dream of playing after high school. Our goal is to help our players find the right school for more reasons than just soccer. Soccer is just one component of the college search and we want to help our players find the right school for them. 

In addition to playing in front of college coaches, the program will consist of topic based information sessions about the recruiting process in order to provide our athletes with an understanding of how recruiting happens, NCAA rules, and what to expect at the college level. Those players interested in pursuing college soccer will be aided in developing their recruiting profile and highlight video to share with college coaches.
