Team Placement

Your team placement is included in the email you received inviting you to Michiana Echo.  All players have been evaluated and placed based on their tryout and historical performance (if applicable) based on US Soccer guidelines

Player development is maximized by having players grouped with other players of similar abilities and skill levels.  Echo often has multiple competitive teams at a particular age level.  Player passing opportunities are also available when appropriate.

We encourage all of our parents and players to focus on the optimal environment for development and not to be overly concerned with team placement.  It is not uncommon for team placement to change from year-to-year based on growth and development.

Travel Program

From 13U to 14U, Echo's travel program has a continued emphasis on developing and refining technical skill while introducing more advanced tactics for the 11v11 game.

Our players are known for their technical ability due to our exclusive world-class Coerver training. Beginning this fall, our Indy Premier alliance includes 11U and up.

Service

All Echo families are expected to provide 5 or more hours of service each year to the club (fall and spring combined).  

Service builds a sense of community, models volunteerism for our children, and keeps fees down. Service can come in many forms, including coaching, team manager, team social coordinator, field setup or maintenance, special events, and fundraising.

Please indicate your preferred service opportunity on your registration form and we will contact you with details.  Or if you are not in a position to volunteer your time, you can opt out of the volunteer requirement for $30 (covers both seasons).
