We are always looking for players that are striving to become elite by gaining the knowledge, technique and mental volume to become a better player. Players that represent our COE program have been selected for their attributes on the field and their mental capacity to take on Elite level instruction. Players must attend our initial assessments in order to join.
We offer a FREE 30-minute assessment in the form of a private lesson to NEW players that have the desire to join the program. We provide the assessment all year around FREE of charge. After the assessment, if we feel the player has the ability to join the Center Of Excellence, we will send out details on how to sign up for the program, via email.
COE PRICING: The cost per month after a successful assessment is $80 (All Age Groups). League fees not included.
Will we have breaks throughout the year?The program runs 12 months of the year including Summer. We will exclude certain days for holidays. Holidays will be confirmed by your local director.
If not selected for a group will there be a chance to break into the groups after the player selection days?Players will have the opportunity to join COE groups all year round if they narrowly miss out during the selection days. We recommend that players join our Private Lesson Program to help them focus on areas of their game that we think they can improve. With this extra training players can progress at very fast rate which will help improve performance.
Is this a club?NO! We bring groups of striving players from an array of club teams from multiple cities together and provide them with a platform to develop and showcase their talent. We are here to help the future of U.S Soccer.
