The Center of Excellence is a fantastic program for our U6 to U10 players that want a little more than just one Recreational practice a week. The club highly recommends that COE be added as additional/training to the recreational program.

COE is also intended to help the players transition from Rec to our more competitive Pre-Select Program. The Center of Excellence is  ran by Head Coached Michaela Schaefer and the program is over seen by Bill Schaefer. 

Michaela Schaefer has head coach the program for over 2 years and has been working in the program for 3. She bring the love of the game out in the kids.

Bill Schaefer is a professional staff coach who is also the Director of the Pre-Select Program and Rec Program.

COE is one of the most important programs the club offers because we really focus on showing the kids the fun, and love of the game at an early age while teaching fundamental foot skills, ball control, and 1v1 play.
