Phoenixville Area Soccer Club Announces New Director of Coaching and Travel Soccer Tryouts

Phoenixville Area Soccer Club (PASC) is pleased to announce the addition of Michael Pryor to its staff of coaches in the role of Director of Coaching. Michael brings enthusiasm and experience to the position, and begins his tenure overseeing Fall Travel tryouts next week.

"It's my responsibility to ensure that each player's development is our top priority," says Pryor. "One of my favorite parts of coaching is watching players develop a love for the game that is everlasting. I feel that the memories made and the relationships formed are as important as the soccer skills learned."

Pryor's coaching credentials include his role as Academy Director at Total Soccer, Asst Coach at Wilkes University, and Head Coach at Wyoming Area High School, in addition to coaching locally. His playing experience includes club ball at Wyoming Valley Soccer Club (1998-2005), high school soccer at
Coughlin High School (2002-2004), and college soccer at West Chester University (2005-2009).

"I've had an amazing soccer journey," Pryor continues, "and I am deeply connected to this area. My goal as DOC is simple: to create a fun and challenging learning environment that fosters a love of the game in every player who steps onto our fields in Phoenixville."

Travel Soccer tryouts for the 2015 Fall season will be held at PASC's club fields beginning Sunday, April 19th. PASC's club fields are located at Charlestown Park, adjacent to the campus of The University of Valley Forge, at Beulah Heights St and Southwest Ave, Phoenixville, PA 19460.

La Crêperie Café Bis Opens

Yesterday, Phoenixville's newest cafe opened. La Crêperie Café Bis, located at the corner of Bridge and Gay Streets at the base of the Gay St. Bridge, opened its doors at 11am. As you can probably guess by its name, La Crêperie features both sweet and savory crêpes which, owner Marietou Fanny says, are made with only fresh ingredients. Fanny also owns a restaurant in Center City in Philadelphia called La Crêperie Café, which has been open for nine years.

La Crêperie is open seven days a week. Hours are Monday-Friday from 11am-10pm, Saturday 11am-11pm and Sunday from 10am-7pm.

Best of luck to Marietou and her staff!

Several Local Businesses Closing Up Shop

Over the next couple of months, three local businesses will be closing their doors.

Originally, (owner Susan) Randels said that the store was doing well, but that the momentum could not keep up.

"The things that sold in Paoli didn't sell in Phoenixville," she said, adding that some customers thought that the store was too expensive or the sizing did not go high enough (size 12 being the highest size sold). "We tried everything."
