ESC & Xplosive Edge Join Forces to Implement Sports  Performance Into Our Curriculum

ESC Director, Rob Herringer, recently collaborated with Xplosive Edge Owner and Director of Sports Performance, Gibbie Duval, on a research article that discusses the importance of implementing sports performance training into our curriculum at ESC. 

Here's an excerpt from the article: "At the Elkhorn Soccer Club, we are dedicated to  researching and implementing best practices for the  long-term, holistic development of our athletes.  Our club-wide curriculum, what we call "The  Elkhorn Way", is built around the philosophy of guiding athletes to  their full potential as people and soccer players. In this holistic learning  environment, it is essential that we teach the pillars of the game:  technical, tactical, physical, mental/emotional, as well as educate our  players and families on lifestyle decisions that impact performance  such as nutrition and sleep. We also attempt to teach essential life s kills to our athletes so they are better prepared to navigate the different  challenges both school and society present them along their journey. Accomplishing this is not an easy task, and we rely heavily on qualified and passionate coaches to deliver the curriculum so all players have the opportunity to reach their goals, on and off the field."

Our 29th annual tournament at the Elkhorn Soccer Club, is the preeminent pre-season tune up with our 4-Game guarantee.   This format aligns with our club philosophy that is focused on holistic child development. For this reason, the Elkhorn Summer Classic is for players' 11U-16U. 

We know early August is the time to get back into the rhythm of things -players are getting their technique and fitness back, working on tactics, and establishing relationships within their squads. From youth teams to full professional sides, late summer has recently become the time for pre-season tournaments.

We are, again, offering a 4-game guarantee. This means plenty of playing time and opportunities to fine-tune your rosters against good competition!  Last year we had to turn teams away, so please register early. We are expecting to fill all of our teams again, adding even more spaces this year.
