Our player programs are differentiated with the following:

  • Training and coaching by a National Team coach
  • More Frequency in training
  • Higher Quality training
  • Targeted training based on each player’s abilities
  • Targeted training based on MLS Academies criteria
  • We train our players with the same expectations and intensity as a professional academy to prepare them for college ID camps and tryouts
  • We travel to Europe for training camps and international tournaments
  • We work with programs in Spain for our top players

“Every year players join ESI and realize that joining the program at a younger age would have allowed them to be much more ambitious and have a real chance to fulfill their soccer career objectives,” Stéphane Auvray, ESI's Director noted.

Players who joined an ESI team or small group training and were selected for MLS academy or an academy in Europe are highlighted and profiled on our site
