We are excited to announce the ESA Distance Learning Challenge!

Calling all competitive and actively learning soccer players!!!

Keep your soccer skills sharp. We understand for many families finances are tight right now. Why pay for online soccer training when ESA offers it for FREE!?! This 5 day program focuses primarily on footwork skills with maximizing touches on the ball. It is brought to you by Enfield’s own, Jay Rousseau, Director of Coaching for ESA. Download the score sheet, watch the videos, and e-mail us back your score sheet. We will send you a certificate of completion and we will also recognize high scores and personal bests with bragging rights online. There will also be a chance to collect prizes for the top scorers. Prizes include ESA Gear and other special items that some of our generous sponsors have donated to us during this stressful time (prizes will be announced shortly).

This is just a sample of the high level of instruction that ESA offers when you are on the field with us.  ESA stays educated on the latest and greatest teachings for youth soccer.  Through our great coaches and numerous resources, the kids are provided with the skills they need to become better soccer players.  We implemented online training for our U-11 Girls team with great success on April 11, 2020.  We are now offering the program at no cost to you.  Come join us for a great soccer experience!!!

Meet ESA's Director of Coaching - Jay Rousseau

Coach Jay Rousseau is one of the finest soccer players ever to wear the Enfield green jersey.  Jay was captain of his Enfield High School soccer team. As a youth, he played soccer in Enfield. Jay has also played for some of the region’s premier clubs in Connecticut to include West Hartford Premier and Oakwood Premier.  He received the honor of being selected to play within Connecticut’s Olympic Development Program from 2003-2005. Jay has coached soccer in Enfield at the rec and competitive levels for the last seven years. He is a lifelong resident of the Town of Enfield.

Last year when the Enfield Soccer Association was formed Jay came to the people involved and offered his assistance. The very first thought for Jay based on his background was for the Director of Coaching position.  Jay volunteered for this position and does this for his love of soccer, the Enfield Community and the children of this town.  Since becoming the Director of Coaching Jay has tirelessly dedicated his time to obtain the coaching certifications you see below, all this while working full time.  This not only shows us his diehard dedication to this sport but also to the town of Enfield, the children of Enfield and to the ESA.  Thank you for everything you've done to growth the sport of soccer!
