My name is Gary Whitehouse and for the last 23 years I have been rooted in the youth sports community and have been assisting families with college recruiting for 17 years. Curently, I am the College Program Coordinator for Seattle United and San Ramon FC Soccer Clubs. My services are also a perfect fit for an academic-only student.
There are many steps to the college selection process. I’m here to personally guide you through each part so that your search will be simple and stress-free.
Every relationship I have with coaches and others in the industry is based on professionalism. I bring the same mentality to the relationships I build with all my clients and their families and strive to encourage that through my mentoring.
With 17 years of experience in the industry, I understand the recruiting process, have familiarity with all the rules, and know what little details matter to help you have a smooth process as you select a college.
The Numbers Don’t Lie
I can proudly say that over the past 17 years, I’ve worked with and individually assisted over 300 families as they seek to understand and navigate the college selection process.

Years of Experience
President & Founder of WCS
In 2002 when my son was a sophomore, I started asking people on the older teams in our club how the recruiting process works. The typical answer was, “We go to tournaments and coaches watch, and if they like a player, they reach out.”
Being in sales for 25 years, this just didn’t make sense. It was then that I knew it should be about reaching out to schools you are interested in—with or without sports. The right school for the right reasons, where you can play your sport, is the best formula for a successful and happy student-athlete.
