This program is designed to help players get to the next level. Our EFC Premier Coaching Staff will be differentiating this group so that all players receive optimal development in the technical areas of the game. The program is specifically designed to develop players in a small group setting and create a natural transition to small sided games to guarantee maximum touches to improve development. The curriculum includes a significant focus on technical ability in small spaces to improve speed of play and decision-making on the field.


Special Topics Goalkeeping & Finishing (Ages 12+)

For ALL field players, finishing is a critical skill whether you are defender or attacker. These sessions will focus on the fundamentals of shooting, shot placement, vision of the goal, and the technical components to create goal scoring opportunities for your team.
