College All-America and All-Region
United Soccer Coaches serves as the recognized leader in naming All-Region and All-America soccer players. United Soccer Coaches selects All-America teams at every level of play. United Soccer Coaches members have the opportunity to nominate their players to receive richly deserved recognition while helping promote the growth of the sport.
Nearly 800 players each year are named United Soccer Coaches All-Americas and are invited to the Convention to be honored at a special ceremony.

NCAA Divisions I, II and III Men and Women Process
The NCAA Division I, II and III All-Region and All-America selection process begins with coaches who are members of United Soccer Coaches College Services program. Coaches have a choice with their nominations. They may nominate up to five (5) field players (in rank order, 1-5) OR nominate up to four (4) field players (in rank order, 1-4) and a goalkeeper for postseason recognition. After the nomination period closes, coaches begin an all-opponent voting period where they see only those players nominated from teams they played during the regular season and select up to 22 players (1st and 2nd team). An All-America formula is then applied to the voting which includes factors such as the player ranking, success of the team and total votes received from eligible voters.
NAIA, NCCAA and Junior College Men and Women Process
NAIA and Junior Colleges use the same online nomination platform for coaches to nominate their players for United Soccer Coaches postseason honors, but they do not vote online. NCCAA does not use the online nomination platform and have their own ballots circulated by their committees. After nominations close for NAIA, NCCAA and Junior College coaches, selection is administered by committees set up by each organization which reviews nominees and evaluates the players based on their own criteria.
