Skill. Confidence. Creativity. Character.
Exclusive Coerver Partner
Our training is grounded in our exclusive partnership with Coerver, the world's foremost soccer skills training method.
We supplement Coerver training with a professionally designed S&C program, a life skills focus, and excellent coaching.
At Echo, our goal is to develop skilled, confident, and creative players of character through a unique training approach.
There is no shortcut to developing the skill and tactical awareness needed for long-term playing success. But over time, a proper training emphasis yields great results.
At Echo, we pride ourselves on having, from top to bottom, some of the most technically sound soccer players in the state. Our players are comfortable with the ball. And this emphasis leads to great individual and team results.
Echo has trained players that have gone on to play in Development Academy, make the ODP state team, receive college scholarships, and play for the junior national team. Our club has won the state tournament at all three levels: State Cup, President's Cup, and Challenge Cup. We have achieved an unbeaten GLC title. And it is increasingly common for our teams to gradually move to higher levels of play within the state.
It all starts with quality training.
#1 Skills Training Method
Because individual player development is the foundation of what we do at Echo, we are an exclusive partner with the number one skills training method in the world: Coerver Coaching.
Through this partnership, we are able to provide all Echo players with weekly Coerver training led by highly qualified technical directors who implement a customized, age appropriate training curriculum.
Coerver Method and Goals
Good team play and advanced tactics are not possible when the team's individual players do not have the skills required to execute. That is why individual ball mastery is the essential foundation to our training curriculum. Player development progresses to include other essential skills, such as passing and receiving, changes of direction, 1v1 moves, speed, finishing, and group attack.
Since 1984, the goals of Coerver Coaching have been to:
- Develop skilled, confident and creative players
- Make the game fun to practice and play
- Teach good sportsmanship and respect for all
- Value winning but not more than character and performance
- Provide a safe & educational experience that meets best practice criteria
Not Just a Tagline
At Echo, Developing the Complete Player is much more than a slogan. It is why we partner with Coerver to develop technically sound players that are also creative and confident. It is why we invest heavily in our coaching to provide a high level training environment. And it is why we incorporate life skills into our teaching curriculum to develop character both on and off the field. Our methodology is based on developing players for long-term success in soccer and in life and has proven results.
Feedback and Evaluations
Our experienced coaching staff provides real-time feedback to players during training sessions to help them improve. Echo is also a Certified Athlete Evaluation Partner of TeamGenius, a provider of athlete evaluation software. In addition to using this software to evaluate players at tryouts, Echo coaches will provide each Echo player an evaluation of his or her technical, tactical, physical, and mental abilities once per year. This assists our players in continuing to develop by showing them what they are doing well and what they need to improve upon.
