Center Of Excellence


The Southeast Center of Excellence (COE) is a supplementary training option for dedicated and talented 6 to 8 year old youth soccer players currently playing at the travel level within the southeast district. 

The COE training sessions follow the same developmental curriculum all current U10-U14 teams follow at the Premier/Elite level and are run by Southeast Soccer Club coaches. 

The COE is the entry level of our Developmental Pathway, and aims to teach the players the FUNdamentals needed to play the game at the highest levels. 

The COE will be overseen by SSC Developmental Coach & SECJSA Director of Coaching Tom Butler. The COE sessions will be led by SSC Developmental Coach & Mitchell College Assistant Coach Marc Davis

We do not want to remove youth soccer players from their travel programs. We want to borrow them for one evening a week, train them within the most professional environment possible, and then return them to their travel teams. 

Players who attend the CEO will not play games or compete in a league. They will simply be part of a training player pool.
