Some of the most technical players come from Echo

"When you look at the state of Indiana over the last 4-6 years some of the most technical players have come from Echo, and that is one of the reasons we wanted to partner with Echo. 

They are willing to help players in being able to express themselves on the field and not just be robotic.  It means there will be many mistakes but they understand there is a process and they are willing to go through it to make a quality player at ages 15/16/17."

This is a tremendous opportunity

"I'm very excited about the partnership we are forming with Indy Premier. Over the last year we've had the opportunity to host some Indy Premier players and also send a few players to attend some of their showcases and training sessions. These players had nothing but positive things to say about their experience.

Having the opportunity to work alongside a staff that shares a similar culture is what excites me the most. Indy Premier is a well known organization in the state who focus on developing the entire individual and not just the soccer player and that's what attracts me the most.

This is a tremendous opportunity for the kids in the Michiana area and I want to personally thank Kenrick and his staff for making this a smooth transition and we look forward to growing the soccer community in a positive way."
