South Central Premier recently finished its inaugural Summer Select Training season. This was a seven week program that met twice a week throughout the summer for training sessions for boys and girls ages 8-14. We are proud to announce that the players had a great experience and really enjoyed the instruction given to them by our professional coaching staff. Each player received an evaluation from our coaches to let them know how their improvements were coming along and also were given things that they could do to help them continue to grow as players. SCP hopes that all the players that took part in our Summer Select Training enjoyed themselves. We appreciate any feedback you wish to share so that we can improve our program for years to come. Thank you for your help in making our first annual Summer Select Training a huge success. SCP STRONG!!!
