2014 "ETP" - Easton Training Program Registration fee: $125

The ETP is specifically focused on our youth players (grades 2nd through 8th) and their skill development. This program will become the cornerstone for our league in regards to our player’s technical abilities.

Easton Training Program Philosophy

At the very youngest ages, the game of soccer needs to be modified to suit the needs of the players. Players should be given as many touches on the ball as possible in both practice and game situations to develop their individual skills and confidence. A small-sided game such as 1v1 thru 6v6 for the appropriate age groups will allow this to happen. Young soccer players develop faster playing in an environment that encourages maximum touches on the ball and reinforces the basic skills. This encourages creativity, risk taking and problem solving skills. The ETP staff will do its best to make your child’s soccer experience fun and enjoyable.
