IESA’s Center of Excellence Program is designed to support and guide players ages 6 thru 8 who wish to make the transition from recreational to competitive soccer. The program is designed for the more technically and athletically advanced recreational player who has a strong desire to increase those technical skills while also learning more about the tactical aspects of the game. The Center of Excellence will provide an introduction to our Junior Academy Program (U9s – U12).

The IESA Center of Excellence Program seeks to create an engaging, competitive, but most of all an enjoyable experience for each participant. Players participate in a 10 month season consisting of 2 one and a half hour long training sessions weekly, an hour long technical training session on the weekend, and play games in the CESA Recreation and Academy Leagues in Greenville every other weekend. 

Players that are interested in the Center of Excellence program must participate in an evaluation training session. These sessions will take place in May, for the following fall season. Evaluation opportunities are available throughout the 10 month season.

If you are interested in participating and/or if you have any questions regarding the Center of Excellence program please contact: Ken Davis at email: or call: 864-538-9921.
