Illinois Youth Soccer Olympic Development and Pre - ODP programs - 2016/17 Winter Registration details.

As most of you are aware, the East Moline and Silvis Soccer Club, (EMSSC) is being targeted by external entities claiming to be "select, or elite soccer clubs," with the sole purpose of recruiting the strongest local club talent. The claim that these groups are the only viable route to securing a college soccer scholarship, or collegiate placement is completely exaggerated and totally misleading. 

As our district talent is being siphoned away from the ranks of our own EMSSC club teams, I should point out that it is far easier to develop competitive and stronger UTHS soccer  teams, if our feeder program retained and developed it's own competitive player's. By continually improving EMSSC coaching services and encouraging enrollment in the Illinois Youth Soccer Olympic Development  Program, EMSSC and UTHS soccer player's seeking a bigger challenge can access all the soccer education they need to secure a pathway to collegiate soccer.

United Township High School can measure it's soccer success on the strength and commitment of it's one true feeder program, the East Moline and Silvis Soccer Club.

Through this joint partnership and effort, we have mentored and produced over a thousand successful college bound player's, with successful representation across all level's of the NCAA, NAIA and JCC soccer spectrum. We have a proven track record of finding the right collegiate fit for many players and take pride in placing student athletes in colleges and universities across the nation.

As a coach, your support of EMSSC and that of your parent's and player's, is the only viable way the UTHS Soccer program improves and continues to grow.

There are many distractions and claims to place your child on the fast track to a collegiate scholarship. The buzz word or phrase of the day is, "College Showcase Event", as if these tournaments will automatically guarantee your placement in a collegiate soccer program.

The truth is that there is no substitute for hard work. It takes considerable time, research, effort, energy, commitment and tremendous sacrifice to achieve that collegiate goal. Only the truly committed will succeed!

I would strongly encourage you to support the EMSSC program, but If you are looking to challenge your son or daughter beyond the local club level, then I would recommend additional enrollment in the Olympic Development Program to supplement your soccer education before considering other clubs that promise more, but do little to embrace UTHS ideology, or prepare your child for college. In the Fall of 2015 and 2016 UTHS Alumni were playing collegiate soccer in well over a dozen colleges and universities across the Mid-West.

See the latest information below on 2016/17 ODP Winter Registration.

The Illinois Olympic Development Program is the first step in the identification process for the National and Olympic Teams.  The Illinois Youth Soccer Association conducts the program for US Soccer under the jurisdiction of the US Olympic Committee. The purpose of this prestigious program is to identify players on the basis of open tryouts and develop them to represent their State, Region and the United States in soccer competition.

Illinois ODP is for serious soccer players who love the game and have hopes of playing in college, professionally and for the US National teams.

Every year the program recycles - All players begin the program with a fresh start.

Buffalo Wild Wings Home Town Advantage

We have once again partnered with Buffalo Wild Wings. They  have selected our club for their Home Team Advantage Program.  Each time you visit the restaurant and you show the team card, they will donate 10% of your bill to our club.  You may print the card from our documents page, take a picture of it and show your server or tell your server you are with the HOME TEAM ADVANTAGE TEAM A. This partnership will end on Oct. 31st 2016.  At the end of the season, Buffalo Wild Wings will present the funds raised to the club. A portion of the funds raised will be used to purchase soccer equipment, continue to make improvements to our fields, and assist with our hardship scholarships. Please support EMSSC and tell your server you are with the Home Team Advantage Team A the next time you visit Buffalo Wild Wings in Moline, Il. PLEASE CHECK YOUR RECEIPT AND MAKE SURE THE SERVER LIST THE HOME TEAM ADVANTAGE DONATION ON THE RECEIPT. Your receipt must reflect the donation or we do not receive it. 

We have a new Identification letter.  We are team A.  In the past we were team E.  Please print a new card for your use from our documents page. 

 

Thank you for supporting our fundraiser!!
