"The Etienne Soccer School has a new training facility; The Sports Factory located in Lincoln Park, New Jersey. The reason we decided to move our soccer school to The Sports Factory is because it is the premier indoor training facility in New Jersey! By partnering with The Sports Factory this allows us to run our training programs year-round".
"If you have not been to the new state of the art facility it features for brand new turf fields, a D1 College Gym and the Dari System (The Dari System is a motion capture system that records, processes, and analyzes a athletes movement, providing invaluable information that leads to better performance and injury prevention). No other facility in New Jersey has this advanced technology! This is the same system used by the University of Notre Dame, University of Florida, University of Texas and Florida State. These universities scan there in season and out season athletes once a month".
The Sports Factory also has the capability of videotaping all training sessions in high definition for evaluation or highlight DVD purposes.
Several professional athletes have trained at The Sports Factory such as Thierry Henry (FC Barcelona, Arsenal FC, NY Red Bulls) David Villa (Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, NYCFC) Dilly Duka (Columbus Crew, Chicago Fire) Nickolette Driesse (US Women's National Team), Connor Lade (New York Red Bull), Alex Muyl (New York Red Bull), Eric Klenofsky (DC United, Toronto FC) and the NY Red Bull to name a few.
There is only one goal at the Etienne Soccer School, and that is to develop young players of the future with skills and techniques at an early age that will help them progress to the next stage in their football journey! We want to showcase each players talent to help them become academy players, youth national team players, high school student athletes, collegiate athletes, and professionals.
Our approach is not only the tactical and skill development but also the mental development of each individual player, as proper mental training will allow each player to reach his or her peak performance!
Etienne Soccer School is not a soccer club, but a club neutral organization, training soccer players from various academies and teams from all over. It's not just another training company, however it is more importantly an educational establishment. A player associated with ESS is engaged to learn and to truly develop. The ESS Approach is to create a learning environment centered on football activities, yet we consider that there are many other facets which are important for a young person to develop as an individual within society. In addition to helping players enhance their football ability, we will also educate them on aspects of fitness, nutrition and health.
We are committed to ensuring that all players associated with ESS acquire good values and standards, which will sustain them throughout their lives irrespective of their ultimate achievements as football players. We consider that a central feature of our role as educators is to ensure that all players acquire the value of tolerance, self-esteem, respect for others, loyalty, self-discipline, and commitment to excellence. A young player associated with ETIENNE SOCCER SCHOOL will be embraced by a culture of learning. It is our desire that all players are happy, enthusiastic and dedicated. ESS provides a welcoming environment, which is professionally structured to offer the opportunity for young players to thrive and gain success. No one can reliably predict the future for any young player, but we hope that when a player leaves an ESS training program, at whatever age, he or she will be able to reflect on their association with us as being positive and worthwhile. Over the years, ESS has placed 22 players to the New York Red Bulls Academy and 12 players to other Academies in the Tri-State Area.
ETIENNE SOCCER SCHOOL OBJECTIVES ESS acknowledges its responsibility to set high football, academic and social standards. We will provide a disciplined environment, where the players will work together to take pride in themselves and their surroundings. ESS will promote and support good outcomes in terms of health, development and educational achievements of our players. EPIC expects all adults who have contact with the players to be good models of behavior, honest and respectful towards each other.
