Combining intensive soccer training with a college-prep education, student-athletes will gain the experience of a lifetime. The coaching syllabus is ideal for soccer students training or playing at regional or national levels and looking to play professional soccer or division 1 college soccer.
Aiming to reach professional and college outcomes for their soccer players, The European Center of Soccer Excellence has equipped itself with a staff and a school to support this goal. All coaching staff have significant experience with European professional clubs in the development of academy-aged players. The daily schedule is strategically planned to optimize training and academics. Players will train Monday through Friday from either the 9 AM - 12 PM or 1 PM - 4 PM.
