Elite Soccer Academy - Introduction 
For the first time ever, Gateway Soccer Association has a pathway to a competitive club. GSA has partnered with Elite Soccer Academy (ESA) based out of Sherman Soccer Complex. Elite Soccer Academy SWFL is a U.S. Club Soccer affiliated organization. After helping three clubs in SWFL over a period of three years,  forming  over 40 teams, our Soccer Operations Director John Robinson, ex English Premiership & International soccer player with over 15 years experience, has decided to start his own club. Our philosophy, direction & vision will come from John’s vast experience as a players, & with being involved in SWFL. ESA philosophy is to focus mainly on tournament  play, and being able to offer the US Club Soccer Of SWFL League where teams play against other local competitive teams, and competing in State  Cup. Our approach  allows for greater  focus on training between tournaments, providing families with more palatable scheduling. JR was the first  person to  implement this philosophy in the 2015-16  season here in S WF L.  Understandably  parents  &  players were concerned on the number of games but as you will see (on the next page) that was not the case. ESA will introduce an Academic requirement component for their older teams, as ESA understands the importance  of academics for  our players. Ultimately ESA focus is to obtain College Scholarships for our players and develop their soccer skills as well as their leadership qualities that will lead to whatever pathway they choose, in which Elite Soccer Academy have connections in all these areas. ESA have partnered with three major organizations. English Premier  League Club, West  Ham United as the official partnered club in SWFL, Sports  Recruiting USA the worlds leading college recruitment agency and Global  image Sports  (GIS) who have exclusive partnerships with top  European soccer clubs, and provide  exclusive soccer tours for their partnered  clubs. These partnerships  will bring huge opportunities for our players, teams & coaching staff like no other  in SWFL.
