Who is Eagle Express Soccer Club?
EESC is a competitive, select youth soccer organization. We are members of the Tennessee State Soccer Association (TSSA, an affiliate of the United States Youth Soccer Association – USYSA). Based in Middle Tennessee our club services communities such as Donelson, Antioch, Mt. Juliet, Hermitage, Lebanon and Old Hickory as well as all other surrounding Nashville communities.
Our focus is on player development, and our goal is to provide quality and progressive soccer instruction that builds and grows both individual and team foundations and strengths while providing skilled players an advanced and competitive environment in which to excel. Our players are eligible for the state, regional, and national Olympic Development Programs (ODP), and our training greatly improves their chances of playing for their middle school, high school, and college soccer teams.
What is your Coaching Philosophy?
EESC is committed to soccer excellence and is focused on empowering select soccer players in the Hermitage, Donelson, Mt. Juliet and surrounding areas by providing high-level training and competition opportunities. We believe that our coaches are first and foremost role models and teachers. Coaching is about motivating players to produce their best effort, inspiring players to learn, and encouraging players to be winners by more than just a score.
It is about developing players’ skills for the game as well as individual confidence, leadership, and teamwork abilities.
Preparation, knowing the game and the proper progressions to various training topics will provide the players with numerous opportunities to explore and discover their full potential through active participation in the sport.
As long as 100% effort is given, the players, coaches and parents should be proud of their performance regardless of the result.

EESC has both boys and girls teams ranging in age group from U9 to U17, and anyone is eligible to try out for any available positions on applicable select teams. Players must meet state mandated age restrictions for the team they are trying out for, and must be invited to join the team by the Head Coach based on the try out evaluations.
