OUR STORY

Over the past 10 years, our friends and colleagues in the club soccer world have approached us to help connect a top player to one of our friends in college soccer. Of course we helped our friends, but the problem was there became too many players to help. In 2018, we ran our first IDX College ID Showcase which we created to provide players with an amazing opportunity to showcase their talents in front of a large group of college coaches (Over 30+ college coaches on average). 

Over the past 5 years, over 60% of the players that have attended an IDX College ID Showcase have been recruited. Since IDX was created, our team of experts at IDX have worked to help a number of players who attended IDX achieve their dreams of playing in college. The process of helping an individual player from IDX that we believe in is extremely time consuming and not always an easy process.

As IDX and The Florida Soccer School have grown, our team of IDX recruiting experts time became limited. For this reason, an independent company shaped with the integrity, ethics, and hard work the IDX College ID Showcase was built on was formed.

IDX+ is the newest partner to the International Soccer School and will act as a personal recruitment service for talented players. At IDX+ our team of recruiting experts will share their knowledge and expertise with players and their families so they are prepared to navigate the college recruiting process. Most importantly, our IDX+ team will connect players to their college soccer network and help find a good fit for the player to play soccer in college.     

PROVEN RESULTS

Since 2018, over 60% of the players that have attended an IDX College ID Showcase have been recruited.
