Knights - EPPU Soccer Premier Team
Our mission is to provide all soccer athletes with the opportunity to improve their game at the premier level, while also focusing on the necessary skills to succeed at the High School and Collegiate level.
The EPPU Knights Premier team was developed to provide soccer athletes in Central Pennsylvania with the opportunity for regular exposure in the highest level of competition. This program will enable them to continue their success as athletes in collegiate soccer by attending College Showcase Tournaments, State Cup competitions, and ID Camps. The Knights Premiere team will compete at the highest level, both nationally and internationally. The EPPU Knights will provide a collegiate level coaching staff and training programs to give players the highest quality of training.
The Knights will regularly focus on:
- Development of the athlete's foot speed, explosiveness, and agilty.
- Controlling the tempo, getting involved in the attack, switching the play, slowing the attack down (defending), taking restarts, team formations, and set pieces.
- Encourage players to step out of their comfort zone and expand their horizons by learning new techniques and implementing new skills.
- Recovering from matches and between matches.
