Announcing Our Learn2Play Coaches

Our Learn2Play Coaches are excited to get on the field with the children this Spring. Coach Anna, Coach Zach, and Coach Kevin are all residents of Enfield and are invested in our community. They have offered to volunteer their time to help teach over 200 children the game of soccer. Check back to this page as the ESA will be adding additional guest coaches to the Learn2Play Program.

We will also have other guest coaches throughout the sessions include some of the towns older soccer players, our competitive teams will be assisting the kids with their fun activities.  We have to thank so many of the volunteers that have helped make Learn2Play such a huge success.  If it wasn't for their help we wouldn't be able to put on this great program every Spring and Fall.
