2018 Celtic FC Summer Academy

This July, two Celtic FC coaches traveled to us all the way from Scotland to host a summer camp for youth players in the area. Liam Pattie and Zeshan Ullah are both coaches for Celtic FC Soccer Academy in Glasgow, and our players were fortunate enough to be exposed to their expertise all week. 

This is the fifth time we have hosted Celtic FC coaches, as we are an International Partner with Celtic. The camp included sessions on: ball mastery, passing patterns, small-sided games and finishing. 

In addition, several ESC Select teams had the opportunity to train with the coaches in the evenings. It was an incredible opportunity for each of these teams to be trained by coaches from a world-class program. 

Thank you to Liam and Zeshan for the time they spent with us, and we look forward to more visits in the future!


If you have a few hours to spare that weekend, we could REALLY use your help!
If you have received financial aid from the club, please do your best to commit to helping at the tournament per your agreement to donate volunteer hours in exchange for financial aid.

Coerver® Center of Excellence- Fall 2018

The Center of Excellence has been redesigned for the 2018-2019 soccer year.  The goal of the CoE is to guide individual outfield players along the path to their full potential in the game.  Sessions will involve: individual ball mastery and technical skill development, SAQ training (strength, agility and quickness), 1v1 attacking and defending and small-sided game competitions.  Emphasis will be placed on playing at speed, with and without the ball, and developing an aggressive, "always attack" mindset.  

Center of Excellence sessions are open to all players at all levels of the game (Elite, Select, Recreational) regardless of club affiliation.  Players will receive instruction from officially licensed Coerver coaches who also hold nationally-recognized US Soccer and United Soccer Coaches certification.

Instructors: Rob Herringer, Jon Shaad, Anne Schafer, Andy Staberg and additional staff 

Who:  Boys and girls with 2012-2000 birth years (7U-19U)

When: September 7, 14, 21; October 5, 12, 19 (Fridays from 5:30-6:45 pm)

Where: James P. McNeil Soccer Complex (Elkhorn)

Cost: $75  *Players must commit to attending all 6 sessions in order to get the full benefit of the program.  Attendance will be taken each day, and unused sessions may be applied to future Center of Excellence sessions.

ESC is hosting a 5v5 Coerver® Cup on October 13th. When planning your team's fall schedule, please consider getting in on this exciting, fun, day-long tournament that will give your players a unique insight into the game.  All 9/10 Hive Academy teams will participate in the Coerver® Cup at no additional cost to our families.
