NCE Soccer is back – and we can announce details of our Fall soccer coaching program and COE tryout dates.
Venues have finally been secured in our NY Metro Metro, New England and North Atlantic regions from September onwards.
They will include specialist NCE Soccer goalkeeping training programs in all three regions, and we can’t wait to get back on the field!
Pre-selected players have been notified if they have already secured their place in the COE Fall program – but for everyone else, including players new to NCE, the tryouts dates are now open for sign up via this link.
NCE Soccer Technical Director John Curtis, said: “We are very excited to be able to announce the dates and confirm venues so we can get back to doing what we love best.
“NCE Soccer is dedicated to fulfilling our mission of helping promising youngsters develop as athletes, students and as people.
“We’ve been frustrated by the lockdown and can’t wait to launch the new features of our programming, that we’re confident will make NCE even more beneficial for those lucky enough to be selected.
“New staff, new technology and new processes will ensure NCE stays on the cutting edge of player development.
NCE is a Process not an Event
“We all know this has been a very trying and difficult time for everyone, and so, the opportunity to get back to some sort of normality is amazing.
“Of course, things will be different and we will embrace any recommendations or guidelines to ensure everyone is able to train safely and be well.
“We will communicate with parents and players nearer to the time but for now, we can focus on getting back onto the field.
“We have notified those who have been pre-selective, but if any players who were with us last year didn’t receive an invite, it doesn’t mean its the end of the journey.
“It means we want those players to work harder, to show their commitment and come back stronger and our door is always open.
“The COE tryouts are meant to select the very best of the best. We make no apology for that.
“The National Centre of Excellence is a process, not an event, it’s suitable for the very best young soccer talent and we look forward to welcoming this Fall’s crop of graduates.”
Tryouts will be hosted across the three regions in September, with the earliest being held on the 11th at the St Josephs College in East Patchogue, New York, and at the Union Point Sports Complex in Weymouth, Massachusetts.
Unfortunately, due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, we are unable to offer our COE or Zone 1 program this Fall in the Mid-Atlantic or South Atlantic regions.
Applications for tryouts will, for the first time, be made through our exciting new Family Portal.
The portal has been developed to provide a direct link between NCE Soccer, the parents, and the player.
It will enable parents to view the progress of their child, click on reports, and interact with the coaches and the NCE Soccer program.
It will also enable parents to manage the logistics of coaching programs, international tours, and payments.
Thirteen COE tryouts will be held for outfield players born between 2010 and 2004 during September
– 7 in our New York Metro region
– 4 in our New England region
– 2 in our new North Atlantic region
The increased interest in our specialist goalkeeping program means we will now host GK tryouts in all three of our active regions this Fall.
