EPD - Elite Soccer Player Development will be offering FREE Soccer Clinics at Gantry Plaza Park Soccer field during the month of September. This is the first initiative to bring organized soccer training to the Long Island City community and a continuous effort from our part to expand our coaching philosophy throughout the city.
Elite Player Development (EPD) is a new progressive training initiative that sets the foundation for youth soccer development in New York City. The main focus is the youth ages of 5-14 years old as these are the golden years for formation; EPD operates as a “Club Neutral” model where players remain in their club teams and augment their development through our structured training program with high quality coaching that offers a variety of individual and small group training. The mission of the program is to create an efficient and intense learning environment leading to accelerate development in all key areas of the game: Technical, Tactical, Physical, Psychosocial.

With a great history and culture we wanted to concentrate our efforts in the NYC area because is an area that attracts major talent and has the potential to be a “hotbed” for producing talented soccer players with the right foundation to succeed at bigger platforms. The fact that the 5 boroughs are all within a reasonable distance, allows us to serve to all NYC areas.
We have professional coaches working with us with very qualified backgrounds internationally and domestically. They have worked at the highest levels of youth soccer development in the Academy ranks of clubs like: New York Red Bulls, Real Madrid, Rayo Vallecano, New York City FC, Sacramento Republic FC, just to name a few.
