ESSA are proud to launch our Outfield & teams program for our Academy players.
Here at ESSA FC academy, we are continually building our program, and we are very happy and excited to announce that the first Outfield sessions were held on Tuesday evening for our U18 – U16 players at our designated fields at Sam Pasco. The fields are perfect and some of the best we have seen here in Florida, which again, is an important factor.
Our soccer academy continually addresses all tactical and technical aspects of the game to further develop our players into quick, strong, skilled, physically fit and confident athletes, while fully preparing them to compete in college and beyond from day one.
Our Outfield program will now be opened up and delivered to our age groups U12 – U18 to work towards the college soccer recruitment process, professional and potential European Academy scholarships.
Having now the Outfield program in place, it allows us to bring in a further group of players on our waiting list, to further strengthen the groups and identify further players at different skill sets.
Over the next 3 months, we will incorporate the best of both worlds, providing indoor session’s, working in technical development, small sided games played in tight areas and strength/conditioning, speed and agility, AND outdoor session’s incorporating team development and individual development working within a team.
Within the 3 months, teams and positions will be identified and formed and game understanding incorporating the philosophy of the ESSA Academy will be delivered by our coaches, with the view once ready, to enter our teams over the remaining season and during pre-season in selected tournaments and challenging friendlies until we are fully confident to enter a D.A league upon approval.
Through our athletic development program delivered in co-ordination with soccer-specific training, each athlete will undertake a unique process best fit to align with reaching their peak potential.
It will be an extremely challenging time for all our Players as we attain to bring them to higher levels, but we are confident and very excited to be able to now be in a position to form our own teams and coach an Elite Academy full of young determined players.
ESSA FC has a core philosophy that recognizes duty to support the local soccer community within selected projects and programs. It is important to ESSA to enable the Academy and its members to be within the heartbeat of the soccer community and share experiences with groups that the center can support.
