Talent ID Program

EPL and European Football Coaching have teamed up to bring an exciting Talent identification program which is uniquely designed for the individual. 

Our aim is to inspire and develop the next generation of US players to have the opportunity to come and train with some of the top academies in England.  We hope to do this by running a coaching program inline with EPPP (Elite Performance Player Plan) standards as used by English Premier League & English Football League Club Academies 
The coaching curriculum has been developed through previous experiences with academies in Europe such as Club Brugge, Bolton Wanderers, Fleetwood Town, Derby County, Borrusia Monchengladbach, AZ Alkmaar and NAC Breda.  As well as experiencing the philosophies in Europe, we have researched U.S based players and identified key aspects that can be targeted in an attempt to take your son or daughter's performance to the next level.
Sessions will be designed to meet individual player objectives and provide the knowledge that relates to a range of principles of play. This learning process will be supported through 
filmed training sessions and games so staff in the UK can offer reflective feedback to players inline with our philosophy. Sport science concepts of the game will be targeted through training zones and biomechanical movements. Players will receive live feedback after every session highlighting areas that are constant throughout the identification process.

Trial Opportunities With

Through the Talent ID Program, EFC will be sending exceptional talents over to Europe for Academy Trials.


If you are not quite ready for an official trial, but are showing signs of becoming a top player, we have access to partner clubs in England, with which we could send you for an Academy Player Experience with a top Academy.


We will also be looking to travel Internationally for tournaments & friendly matches, as well as playing and training experiences at multiple levels and age groups.

Our partnership with Cosmo Soccer Academy means that all of the recorded Talent ID sessions will get sent directly to CSA director and Manchester United scout, Russell Hullett.


Russ' has worked as a professional youth scout for a number of years and is a UEFA "A" License coach. He is well aware of what it takes to break through in to a professional Academy and has helped 92 players progress into professional Academies.


Not only will EFC be providing CSA with video footage of every Talent ID session, but we will be flying Russ' out to view our Talent ID games at the end of each season.
