EFC Member Spotlight: January

EFC Member Spotlight: January

In 2018, we want to continue our mission of celebrating our players and connecting the entire Eastern Family. One way we have decided to do this is by honoring an EFC Junior player (2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004) and Senior Player (2003, 2002, 2001, 2000) each month with Member Spotlight newsletter. When the players are selected, they answer the following questions, so all can get to know them. This week we celebrate EFC 2006 Blue Devils player, Sebastian Levy, as our Junior Player Spotlight and EFC 2000 Spartans player, Joey Carbone, as our Senior Player Spotlight. We hope that you enjoy learning about the different players honored from our club in the coming months. Our players come from all over the tri-state area and we are very proud of them all for their exhibiting pride, passion, and professionalism on a regular basis.

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+)

Sundays, 12pm-1pm

This program will focus on the development of BOTH Goalkeepers and Finishing for Field Players.

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.

In addition, each training session will incorporate the field players and goalkeepers to create real game situations for both.
