A Letter from the Executive Director
As we head into a new year, we get to hear from our club's executive director, Rob Herringer, about his reflection of this year, a reminder of our mission, values & philosophy, and what we can look forward to in 2018 for our club. 

Some highlights from the letter:
  • Our Pillars of Excellence: Integrity, Respect, Commitment, Discovery & Inclusion
  • We remain committed to holistic child development - developing the player AND the person
  • Our partnerships with Coerver®, Celtic FC (Glasgow, Scotland), the United Soccer Coaches, and the United States Soccer Federation are strong and we look forward to continuing our work with them.
  • Community outreach efforts of 2017: 5K for special education programs within the Elkhorn Public Schools Foundation, partnership with Christian Outreach Program - Elkhorn, and support of Football for the World Foundation and Lydia House.

December Diaper Drive = Big Success


This past December, ESC participated in a local Diaper Drive sponsored by Channel 94.1 in support of Open Door MissionOpen Door Mission is a Gospel Rescue Mission founded in 1954 committed to breaking the cycle of homelessness and poverty. Each day, Open Door Mission's campus offers 816 safe, shelter beds to homeless men, women and children, serves over 2,000 hot, nutritious meals and provides preventive measures to more than 275 people living in poverty.

Open Door Mission's campus offers support to women and children, specifically, through the Lydia House Women & Family Center. The Lydia House offers emergency services for women & families in need of immediate assistance. The donations to the Diaper Drive went straight to the benefit of those at the Lydia House.

ESC families were able to donate 1,125 diapers and several boxes of baby wipes to this cause!

New Fields Coming 
Spring 2018

 

St. Patrick's Church and Elkhorn Soccer Club have entered into an agreement to develop 9.57 acres of land located at approximately 230th and West Maple Road (just north of JPM) into a new outdoor soccer facility with three 11v11 fields. Installation of a well and electrical have already begun.  Installation of an irrigation system, sod and seed will take place in early 2018. The goal is to complete the project in late spring of 2018. These new fields will provide space for training and league play.  ESC ADO and Select teams will now have the ability to play home league games starting in the Fall of 2018. The ESC Summer Classic in August will be held at this new complex and JPM.
