VERY IMPORTANT: Elite Player Development Programs

The Elite Player Development program is a neutral training entity and provides programs for individuals, small groups, clubs, and teams looking for additional training. I encourage players to play for their local recreational and competitive teams. This is advanced supplemental training. Not to be confused with a USYSA , ECNL, MLS Next, NPL, or USL Academy competitive program. Players are encouraged to participate in this program either concurrent with their USYSA , ECNL, MLS Next, NPL, or USL Academy team season, afterward, or when their schedule permits. It is not a requirement or mandatory to play USYSA , ECNL, MLS Next, NPL, or USL Academy, but encouraged for additional game play and field experience. Obviously, more dedicated participants will receive the most growth and experience from the training. From this program, let it be known that collegiate, regional and national players are fostered. The sessions are for any area player interested. This is an  event and is not associated with any Oregon, Washington, Tennessee or Georgia State Association Club. This is not a tryout or will be held as a recruiting tool for any association nor is it encouraged. This is an educational soccer experience for all area soccer players.
