Center of Excellence

Bridging the gap between recreational and club soccer. Center of Excellence (COE) Director, Rich Swain, will be selecting a group of hand-picked soccer players, male and female, aged between 6-12 who will be professionally trained and coached in a challenging but fun environment.

All sessions will be developmentally appropriate to each individual, focusing on technique and tactical awareness used in soccer, therefore physically and mentally preparing each player for the transition from recreational to competitive soccer.

Registration for this program is on an invitation only basis, if you are fortunate enough to be selected for the COE you will receive a letter of invitation. If you wish to accept the invitation, simply follow the instructions on the letter to register online.

For all players (Boys and Girls 6-12), please contact COE Director Rich Swain at:
