Centers of Excellence
Players in this program will be provided with a nurturing environment designed to focus on technique development. Player-to-coach ratios will insure plenty of individual attention by program coaches. Players will be encouraged to take risks and experiment to improve confidence in their technical abilities and will have an opportunity to train with the other top players from their playing district.
Clubs granted “Centers of Excellence” status are required to meet and maintain program standards. PA West Soccer Coaching staff personnel will monitor maintenance of the program standards and ideals through announced and unannounced visits to guarantee program integrity.
Among the program requirements: minimum licensing for the Technical Director and all coaches, facility requirements, mandatory child safety/risk management measures, minimum/maximum player-to-coach ratios to guarantee proper training environment, and PA West Soccer staff oversight agreement.
There is a limited number of Centers of Excellence granted in each playing district based on player registration in the districts. Any club or group of clubs affiliated with PA West Soccer can apply for consideration to become one of their district’s Centers of Excellence.
