Eagle F.C. Futures Program for Spring 2021

Eagle F.C. is making exciting changes for our youngest players.  Following a successful Fall 2020 season, we are happy to announce the continuation of our player-centric Futures program for U6-U9 players.

Eagle F.C. is leading the way with an innovative player development approach that combines several proven concepts for teaching young players.  We have created a unique training system that incorporates the USSF Play-Practice-Play model, an effective game structure from Horst Wein’s FUNino system, and elements of ball mastery learned from several top training programs such as Coerver Coaching.  We have also incorporated a thoughtful progression from 3v3 to 7v7 to prepare our players more appropriately to transition to competitive play.  This will serve as the foundation of the club’s new player development model.

Our Spring 2021 Futures program will kick off in early April at Hidden Creek Park.  The club has configured the fields and equipment to provide a positive, fun, and quality training environment.  Our goal is to facilitate an enthusiastic environment that is conducive to learning for all players.

Below are a few highlights of the new program:

  • An experienced, prepared, and cohesive staff with a wealth of playing experience, coaching knowledge, and certifications/licensing will be leading the program.
  • All of our coaches and volunteers have up-to-date clearances,  background checks, and child safety training.
  • Training session structure and curriculum will be standardized and communicated. Volunteers assisting the staff will receive instruction, support, and training while working in partnership with our lead coaches.
  • The program will have central messaging to parents for effective communication and efficient scheduling.
  • Groups are arranged to build confidence and to provide flexibility for age and ability appropriate participation.
  • Training and gameplay are progressive and encourage the development of technique, skills, decision making, and game intelligence, emphasizing guided discovery.
  • The program is local, convenient, and affordable.

To uphold our standard of excellence and use the facility efficiently, space is limited, so don’t delay.  Register today to reserve your spot!

If you would like to volunteer for this new program or have questions, please contact the Futures Program Director, Andrew Otterson, via email at aotterson@eagle-fc.com

We are an inclusive program, and we believe diversity creates a rich and respectful soccer environment.   All players are welcome.   As noted below, our players have a pathway beginning at U6 through U9 and beyond.  Eagle F.C. will continue providing opportunities for players of varying abilities and focus.
