Now, the fun part. Put together a video. Have it include actual game footage as well as drills you perform *(sprints, ball touches, agility, etc). Have fun with the video. Show all sides of your game. If you are a defender, show footwork. If you are forward, show your finishing skills. Do anything to stand out. Graphics and a well thought out "plan/script" are also very useful so take the time to do it. Video should probably be between 2 and 5 minutes. Anything shorter you wont show off your skills. Anything more, you will lose your audience.
Also...as you are sending these videos to the schools, create a website with all your games and information. Make it easy for the recruiting coaches to see you. Treat each video like it was a resume and speak to the individual school you are trying to attend. A "blanket" video is good. A PERSONALIZED video is better.
Should you have anymore questions, please send me a note, and I would be glad to help.

I'm sure you'll receive further responses from people who have more direct knowledge of the available resources. Best of luck to you!
I also suggest creating a "soccer resume" with some of the accolades you and your teams have accomplished. Scouts bring those to showcases. Best of luck!

Congratulations on playing collegiate soccer! I ran cross country and track in college and it gave me some of the best memories. The answers above may be more relevant to today's athletes (I graduated in 2006 and these websites did not exist) but I focused on developing relationships with coaches. For example, I wrote thank you notes whenever coaches came to my races and also created a two-page document that included my best times and reasons I wanted to run at the collegiate level. I was a good runner but not the top in the state, so I think showing that I brought more to the table than just fast times helped me get noticed. A positive attitude goes a long way when working out with top athletes in a team setting.
Best of luck!
