Read what coaches from some of NJ's best clubs had to say about the EDP platform moving forward into 2019/2020.

"TSF Academy have been part of EDP since its inception and continue to believe in its core mission, which is to provide opportunities and pathways to players.  We, as a club, are always looking to create the best possible training environments, and platforms for our families. We look forward to continuing to build this with EDP at a variety of levels."
- Lee Bakewell, TSF Academy, Boy Director of Coaching

“Last year, we made a commitment to go all-in with National League EDP and we could not be happier with our decision.  For all of our teams participating in National League EDP Conference play, we get meaningful matches week-in and week-out with minimal travel.  For our SJEB Rush and NJ Rush teams who are fortunate enough to qualify for the US Youth Soccer National League, they get access to extremely high level tournament-based competition that provides outstanding college showcasing opportunities.  National League is made up of the best teams in the country and we're thrilled to have several pathways to earn our way to the top through National League EDP"
- Greg Wiesmore, SJEB Rush, Executive Director

- Jim Buchanan, FC Berna / Legacy, Director of Soccer Operations

- Lee Pollard,​ PDA Shore Girls​ Director of Coaching.

"Centercourt FC and EDP have had a great relationship since the beginning of our club.

The staff at EDP have been very responsive to us and provide a great experience for our club, allowing us to focus on the development of the players first. We look forward to EDP’s new offerings and having a continued relationship with them".
- Neil Clinton, Centercourt FC, Director of Coaching
