ESA is a learning environment designed for boys and girls ages 3-17.
We are a private, European-style soccer academy for players and parents who value proper learning
of the game at the youngest ages.
ESA is purely devoted to proper development of each player both on and off the field, enforced by
the experience of over 70 years of coaching combined from our coaches

We seek to improve players’ abilities, circumstances, and opportunities by helping parents navigate
through the complex world of youth sports in an effort to maximize overall development, while
incorporating our long-term athlete development (LTAD) program for every player.

We aim to graduate all players by age 14-16 so they are equipped to make the best club or school
team for their capabilities. This is a very unique approach to youth soccer, and we look forward to
helping each player train, play, compete, and develop!
