East Brunswick, NJ (November 16, 2018) - EDP Soccer, one of the nation’s leading managers of youth soccer leagues and tournaments, announced today it will manage and implement the popular EDP Futures program in New England starting in Spring 2019. The program will be for U9-U10 boys’ and girls’ teams and early registration is now open.
EDP Futures serves as a pre-cursor to the well-known EDP Soccer program, with a clear focus on developing young soccer players and teaching fundamentals in a positive and unpressured environment. The EDP Futures program uses small-sided games to encourage young players to take more touches on the ball and develop their technical skills, with the primary aim of reaching key milestones on their developmental pathway. The program’s objective is to instill a sense of enjoyment for playing soccer with an overall commitment to developing grassroots talent.
"There is significant interest from clubs in the New England area for a U10 and younger platform, one that provides the appropriate competitive experience while also establishing a positive game-day environment,” said John Tait, EDP Regional Manager of New England. “EDP Futures does just that and we are extremely happy to be partnering with clubs to help develop young soccer players across New England.”
Josh Krusewski, Executive Director of the Connecticut Junior Soccer Association (CJSA), echoed that sentiment by saying "We are very excited that EDP is offering the EDP Futures program to Premier level clubs in the New England states. EDP Futures is the perfect format to give the game back to whom it truly belongs, the players. It encourages youth development that is player centered and allows every participant to optimize their soccer education.”
