EDP Soccer has renewed its strategic partnership with United Soccer Coaches as “Official Supporter of College Coaches.” EDP Soccer focuses on Pathway to College™ programming, including offering top tier tournaments and leagues as well as managing four US Youth Soccer National League Conferences, that create important scouting opportunities for college coaches of all divisions.
As the “Official Supporter of College Coaches,” EDP Soccer will be the presenting partner for the digital college coaches planning calendar available on the United Soccer Coaches website, the United Soccer Coaches monthly college coaches’ newsletter offering useful news, content and links, and podcasts relevant to college coaches.
Since 1999, EDP Soccer has been committed to enabling youth soccer players to reach their full potential on and off the field, with an emphasis on going to college, by providing a full range of the highest quality soccer-related experiences and empowering each player to select a pathway best suited to their goals. EDP Soccer works closely with member clubs to develop a positive, fair, and competitive environment based on cooperation and communication.
“EDP Soccer’s programming is based on the concept of soccer being a Pathway to College™. We know most youth soccer players will go to college and the best players will have an opportunity to play in college,” explained Steve Shilling, Founder and CEO of EDP Soccer. He continued: “Therefore, EDP Soccer wants to show its commitment to college soccer and provide support for college coaches as they engage in professional development and connect to youth players. A strategic partnership with United Soccer Coaches is a great way to accomplish these objectives.”
“EDP Soccer has made an important commitment to supporting college coaches and the college game,” said Lynn Berling-Manuel, CEO of United Soccer Coaches. “We are delighted to continue our partnership with this youth soccer leader.”
