Elite West Coast Youth Soccer players are invited to tryout for the National Center of Excellence at THREE Venues across Southern California.

NCE Soccer will host tryouts THIS September – and those selected will go onto represent NCE and their country against the best teams in the world.

Selected players will take on the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, AC Milan and Nottingham Forest and represent America at the World Youth Cup in Gothia 2023.

Elite Boys and Girls – aged 8-18-years – in Southern California can now join NCE Soccer Programming alongside established East Coast players from New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Jersey.

The new Southern California region is the fourth NCE terrority and there are exciting plans to develop further into and across the US in the near future.

“We know there is a huge talent pool of players on the West Coast who want the same opportunities and to be able to launch in Southern California is hugely exciting,” explained Paul Hennessy.

“Some West Coast players have been invited to join NCE Soccer Programming in the past because of their exceptional ability but to now have boots on the ground, and be able to work with large numbers of players at multiple venues on a regular basis is a game changer.

“We will launch in the Fall with three venues that will provide players from Lancaster to Santa Clarita and Temecula and as far West as Long Beach with the opportunity to take advantage of the NCE Soccer Programming.

“We will work hard to ensure clubs locally recognises the advantages of having NCE Soccer in Southern California, in that we are are not competition, we are not a club team, rather we will have their best players maximize their potential.

“For the players, they get the opportunity to work with top class professional coaches stacked with incredible connections at professional clubs around the way, the very best US Universities and Colleges and perhaps most importantly, the experience and professionalism required to make it at the highest levels.

“It isn’t easy. The standard is high and NCE will not take players who don’t make the grade. We are about quality, not quantity but we know there is genuine soccer talent in California and we want to see it flourish.”

NCE Soccer announced the move to California with the unveiling of the first Southern California location – LA Surf Soccer Center – in Pasadena.

Tryouts will be held on September 25th and programming will run on Sunday evenings.

Now we can exclusively reveal the next two venues in NCE Soccer SOU CAL region, Goals Soccer Center in Covina and Ruben S Ayala Park in Chino, CA.
