The goal of our club is to provide the best possible, all-round soccer experience for ALL of our players.  We have developed a program titled The Penn Legacy Way which closely follows the ideals described in US Soccer Federation's new-look curriculum and their Best Practices Guidelines for youth soccer player development. We endeavor to place an emphasis on skill level, learning to play an attractive brand of soccer, good sportsmanship and teamwork.  

We will base our successes on how well our players develop, not just on the soccer pitch, but as young people, all the while remembering that this is a competitive sport.  If our players are enjoying their soccer experience, and being taught the game the right way by the best coaches, then we can achieve great things.

That is the Penn Legacy Way.
