ELITE YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

our mission

Football, in Europe and numerous other countries, transcends beyond being merely a sport; it embodies an entire way of life. Our EYDP program aspires to embrace this rich football culture and bring it to the States, where young athletes can learn on and off the pitch. We firmly believe that football instills essential life skills like perseverance, determination, work ethic, and teamwork. Our mission is to provide kids with an environment that goes beyond the norm, fostering a deeper connection to the beautiful game and imparting valuable lessons that extend far beyond the field for the next generation of players.

our process

Our EYDP is unique to our other programs as players can only be accepted after a strict application process to ensure the quality and level of this program. Within our EYDP program, we offer two distinct sub-programs: Sessions and Teams. Our Sessions focus on individual skill development, providing an uninterrupted training environment with the most elite players in each age group. Our Teams program emulates the competitive atmosphere of a club team, offering top-tier practices and scrimmages to enhance players' gameplay capabilities.

EYDP TEAMS

Within our Teams program, players immerse themselves in a club team's competitive environment, engaging in top-tier practices and intense scrimmages that drive their gameplay abilities to new heights. Additionally, our EYDP players will undergo a comprehensive 4-phase periodization process, guaranteeing a well-rounded training approach that enhances their overall capabilities.

"I don't run away from a challenge because I am afraid. Instead, I run toward it because the only way to escape fear is to trample it beneath your feet."
