Developed by the Erie Sports Center www.eriesportscenter.com with the support of the Erie Express, our program focuses on developing advanced football players in the regional level. This program is for athletes that excel in flag or rec leagues and are looking for a higher level of competition.
The Jr. Express are the highest level of football for the Erie Sports Center youth football program and the ambassadors for their age group. Even at the highest level of competition, the focus will be on training in a positive environment that develops players according to their skill sets and age groups. We believe that our football teams can be used to teach valuable life skills to our youth that will teach them to be leaders on and off the field.
We are a group of volunteers, coaches and staff that believe in being a beacon of light in our community to help change peoples lives with football and community service. We all share the common belief that the sport of football is the best sport in our society and if used properly can be a platform to help grow great leaders in society.
We want these leaders to develop their skills on the field and off the field and contribute to make our community a better place. We partner ourselves with programs and local organizations that promote life building skills and values that encourage:
Our coaches are part of the Erie Sports Center Football Academy. This program brings together some of the best coaching talent from all levels of football in our area including local high schools, colleges and the Erie Express. All of our coaches have a singular focus that puts the development of athletes first in all areas of football including tackle, flag and higher level development.
The mission is to develop young athletes to be the best they can on and off the field and at all ages. When this occurs, young athletes will develop into leaders and excellent athletes for their teams and school districts. This program provides a neutral training program that will work with all school districts and teams in the area to advance the sport of football and give our youth the best pathways possible to achieve the next level.
As a club team of the Erie Sports Center, our training facilities will be at the Oliver Road location which includes a brand new indoor dome, renovated gymnasium, as well as additional fields and training facilities that are in development. This allows our team and organization to operate in central location and create one, strong culture for all of our teams similar to a University sports program.
Through the Erie Sports Center Football Academy program we also have access to schedule special training sessions with some of the best coaching talent in our area in the off seasons.
