I'm impressed with Coach West's passion for the integrity of the game. His enthusiasm is contagious.
My first experience with soccer was when a neighbor invited me to come play with a local women's team. Having never played a team sport before, I was intimidated, but it was so fun, I was instantly hooked. About that time, West City Soccer's women's program started up, and I've been involved in his training programs every season since. Through his expert coaching and encouragement, I've learned the principles of play and can now apply the skills and techniques from practice to be successful on the field. Additionally, Coach West's relentless enthusiasm, positivity, and passion for the sport and his dedication to the soccer community have fueled my own love of the sport
WCS has been a fantastic way to get back into playing soccer again and improve in many way[s]. My ball handling skills have gotten better, and I’m more confident on the field. Not only is it a great learning experience, but you also make new friends who share your love for soccer.
