Each age group consists of multiple teams to ensure that players are training and competing at a level appropriate to them. Coaches are assigned to teams for 1-3 years at the discretion of the technical staff. This process creates a framework in which players are with coaches who understand the developmental needs of their athletes and can focus on the technical and tactical demands of specific age groups.
The success of player development philosophy of the club is evidences by the achievements of our individual players and teams. PWSI has produced multiple State, Regional, and National Pool players.
