Century is pleased to announce major advancements to our already successful Academy program! After months of planning, developing, organizing, and revitalizing; the Century Academy is excited to share the appointment of TWO new Academy Directors with Larry Fingers leading the Boys Academy and Randi Rohm leading the Girls Academy. As a club, we are thrilled to add this tandem along with Coach Dave Molisee as they have a long storied success of developing players.

He was also voted the 2015 WPSCA, NSCAA, WPIAL, and PA High School State Coach of the Year. He has guided numerous players into collegiate soccer programs.
Coach Fingers had this to say about his Academy appointment: “I am thrilled to hit the ground running with the players and staff in our already successful Academy program. I have always loved working with and developing our older players and am ecstatic about the opportunity to have the platform to get early access to and jump start the growth and development of our younger players.”
On the girls’ side, Coach Rohm also has a storied coaching resume with a focus on player development with a resume that includes: Century Staff Coach for 15 years, Current coach of the Girls 2000 and 2009. The Girls 2000 team has a rich history that includes a trip to the 2018 National Championships, 2018 Region 1 Champions, 3 time State Champions, and 4 ERL Playoff Appearances. She guided all 22 players to the collegiate level from the 2000 team and coached Veronica Latsko (member of the ‘95 team) who currently plays in the NWSL for the Houston Dash. She played collegiately at the University of Notre Dame.
Coach Rohm had this to say about her Academy appointment: “I am absolutely excited to have this amazing opportunity to work with our youngest players. I have been part of the academy for the past two years as a head coach of the 2009s, and there is nothing more fulfilling as a coach than to see a player’s growth and development at this age. I coach to teach the game and develop players. To have the opportunity to guide, develop, and influence our youngest players is an incredible honor. I cannot wait to get started with these groups and our first class Century Academy staff.
Together, Coach Fingers, Coach Rohm, and Coach Molisee have worked tirelessly on developing an innovative curriculum and have enhanced the coaching staff to strengthen player development with those in our Academy.
