The Eastern Development Program is excited to announce the introduction of the EDP Super Club model for the 2015/2016 season.

The EDP Super Club model will see selected clubs join an exclusive club-v-club model within the EDP league showcasing the very best youth soccer in the East coast. 

EDP Super Clubs will have access to competitive league matches, as well as  the EDP Open Cup, USA Champions League and EDP Cup Series. 
 
Super Clubs will benefit from our exclusive Pathway to College program,which focuses on college placement for U15-U18 age groups. Through EDP, players will have multiple opportunities to showcase their talent for some of the premier college soccer program sin the country. To make our athletes even more accessible, EDP will create a video library, which will become the ultimate recruiting tool for college coaches. 

"The EDP Pathway to College is a very compelling program.  It presents many of the best clubs on the east coast, league play on conveniently located college campuses, and access to the video library from tournament and league play." Peter Gooding, TIP To College Director.

In addition to college-led ambitions, the EDP Super Club model will provide an environment which will promote player development for age groups U11-U14 seeing teams travel, as a club, to face other members.

"The EDP Super Club model takes the current model with outstanding match play and sensible travel and adds the benefits of the club.  Great idea, World Class is excited about this new program."

The EDP Super Club program integrates an organized league structure with supplementary tournaments offering clubs the chance to participate in a competitive soccer season. 

"The EDP Super Club League is an exciting league development bringing together the top clubs in the region. The Clubs who have signed up share some key attributes including a proven track record, a focus on player development and a desire for strong  weekly competitive games.  The quality of the clubs is paramount to any league and the Super Club League's structure enables players, coaches, and college scouts to gain the greatest value from competition."

With guaranteed matches and access to some of the area's premier tournaments, Super Clubs will be able to test themselves on a regular basis in a competitive club structure with a camaraderie between fellow members promoting a suitable environment for the development of youth soccer.
