The program is praised by players and parents. "As parents of two daughters playing in the Albion SC program we can attest to the outstanding guidance that’s offered to parents and players in ways to advance your child to the college level. The club uses showcases to get exposure for the kids starting around the age of 14. The coaches routinely do evaluations to better assist with the realities of each players abilities. We have appreciated the guidance along the way, and now with pride are watching our oldest daughter on her way to Arizona State University on a full soccer scholarship."
Technical Director Noah Gins is passionate about grooming players to advance and take advantage of the opportunities that lie ahead. “We believe in investing time to educate not only players, but the parents, to come up with tailored plans to get optimal exposure for these kids; we walk them through the college recruiting process and prepare them extensively to give them options well beyond what they thought was possible.”
