The Regional League teams are preparing for a 3-week road trip as we reach the midway point of the season. On Sept 25 and 26, the girls travel to play in Clearwater and Tampa. In October, they play in Jacksonville, followed by a final trip of the fall season to Miami. The teams are also preparing for the upcoming OC Cup. Good Luck to all the teams!
The ECNL teams have completed two of their 3 trips to Atlanta and Alabama, with their final trip out of state on Oct 2 and 3. After that road trip, the teams return to Florida for competition before breaking for the winter. Good luck to the girls as they complete their competition in Georgia and begin in-state play!
Derrick Smith and Trent Frederick, our College Liaisons and assistants at Eckerd, have started their college season with an undefeated start over 4 games. We currently have 2 Orlando City alumni playing at Eckerd and 4 commits for the 2022 graduating class, so Good Luck to them as they continue their college season. We will send out Information to all 2007 and older teams within the next few weeks regarding college recruitment and an in-person meeting over Winter.
Finally, we wanted to highlight our GK program this month. The GK staff, led by Lloyd Yaxley, has done a fantastic job preparing the girls for the season. The girls have stepped up and we are in the best position we have ever been in with GK's on the Senior Girls side. We currently have 18 gk's between the 12 teams and they have been exceptional to start the season. We are still dealing with a few injuries but it has been a great start for these players and we are very excited about the progression of the GK program at the club.
