Center of Excellence

"The Thrill of Skill and an Introduction to the Rapids Academy"

Center Objectives:
The Center of Excellence will ensure that more young players are exposed to quality coaching and made more aware of the technical requirements of an elite soccer player.

The exclusive purpose of the COE is to introduce and promote player development through technical training and the importance of technique as it applies to the game. Although inclusive, it is still designed to nurture the advancing serious player.
