Quality Coaching

Our program emphasizes the development of the total person. Our coaching staff creates a highly competitive training environment that fuses superior technical and tactical training with the latest conditioning and strength protocols- all within a framework that is both system specific and position specific. Off the field, we provide academic and spiritual support through our large qualified staff. 

Head Coach Mark Wagner was selected as the Freedom Conference Coach of the Year in 2010, 2013 and 2014. In 1998, 2003, and 2005 Coach Wagner's peers recognized him as Pennsylvania Athletic Conference Coach of the Year. He was the recipient of the 2003 and 2005 South Eastern Pennsylvania Coaches Association "Coach of the Year" (an honor for one coach in Southeastern Pennsylvania from all soccer teams in NCAA DI, DII, DIII). Additionally, in 2005 Coach Wagner was honored as the NSCAA Mid-Atlantic Soccer Coach of the Year. Coach Wagner surpassed the 250 career-win mark in 2014 joining an elite tier of coaches to reach that mark.

Building Christian Character (P.U.S.H.)

Our staff looks for high-level players who are interested in a top – quality, private, liberal arts Christian University. Our coaching staff is committed to helping our players grow in their faith in Jesus Christ, whether on or off the field. As a coaching staff, we believe that this is a critical factor in our success as a total program. We believe that this is the single most important objective that we have as coaches. Our program philosophy is embodied in the acronym P.U.S.H which stands for passion, unity, selflessness, and humility. The philosophy undergirds all that we do both on and off the field.

Home Field Advantage
