NSCAA Club Assessment: MVSA Evaluation SummaryNSCAA Club Assessment: MVSA Evaluation Summary - Saturday, January 31, 2015
"At the request of Middle Valley Soccer Academy, a comprehensive assessment was conducted in December 2014. I found this growing organization to be one of the best model Clubs I have ever evaluated. I had the opportunity to speak to and observe players, parents, coaches, and administrators from all aspects of the Club, and found a basic, but universal understanding that progressive and age/ability appropriate instruction was the path to success. Spending time with this Club was like taking a breath of fresh air, and observing their operations gave me a new hope for the future of soccer in Chattanooga. They have a consistent "Player Development comes first" philosophy throughout their entire organization and for all ages of the overall program. I strongly encouraged the leadership to continue maintaining a club and player centric approach to all developmental priorities. I look forward to returning in July 2015 to spend a week devoted to advanced player and coach education." Gary Hindley, NSCAA Associate Staff Coach- Region V
