United Soccer Coaches Honor Bulldogs For Work In Classroom

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Both the Yale men's and women's soccer teams were quite successful in the classroom in 2016-17. Yale was one of 195 schools across all NCAA divisions to have both its programs earn Team Academic Awards from United Soccer Coaches (formerly the NSCAA).

A total of 813 collegiate teams (282 men, 531 women) earned the Team Academic Award.

United Soccer Coaches annually celebrates the academic achievements of high school and college soccer teams whose student-athletes collectively demonstrate a commitment to excellence in their studies over the course of a full school year. 

College Team Academic Award recipients are active members of the United Soccer Coaches College Services Program with a composite grade point of average of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale for all players on the roster.
