Joey Bilotta For The Win

If you’ve ever studied and trained at an EduKick Academy, then you know Joey Bilotta. Joey has spent most of his life inspiring young soccer players to excellence.
He works harder than most people on the planet to encourage, motivate and involve them in classes, sessions, and training that prepares them – not just for the soccer arena – but for life.

The Goal of EduKick Academies

As soccer, or football, is a world sport, it’s his goal, and the goal of all EduKick venues, to offer these young players a better sense of what the world is like. And while academics and soccer training are the main studies at each campus, the overall experience offered by EduKick International Football Association (EIFA) provides the opportunity for each student to develop intercultural competence.
Joey firmly believes that learning to understand, communicate with, and play alongside players and coaches from other countries and cultures gives these students an edge over most other players.

What Student Success Looks Like

With that edge comes a better awareness of who they are – individually – and what their place is in the international world of soccer. While some, like Duncan McCormick and David Somma, have gone on to professional careers, others have chosen to coach, teach, and work in the administrative side of the soccer world.
Whatever their place, these student-players – alumni of EduKick Academies – continue to develop in the sport they love so much.
And a good deal of this deeply embedded sense of purpose is owed to our own Joey Bilotta.

Thanks, Joey!

SOCCER TIPS: Avoiding Dehydration

Drinking enough fluid should be a priority for every player and coach. Water keeps you cool from the inside out, increases blood flow to the muscles and brain, boosts stamina, bolsters focus and gives you the edge others may lack.
Ed Spain 14 7
Even slight dehydration (-2%) can lead to significantly poor performance. Greater loss causes damage in the form of heat exhaustion
#1 Mental Focus
Adequate water intake thins the blood to keep your brain well supplied with the oxygen it needs to process information quickly. Without it, you will find yourself lacking the ability to think quickly on the field.
Dehydration symptoms: Muddled thinking and slow mental response.

#2 Muscle Strength
Taking in enough fluid allows for quicker muscle reactions and strength. Blood contains the nutrients your muscles crave. Adequate hydration sends blood flow where you need it most – your legs.
Dehydration symptoms: Headache and achy, sore legs that begin to tire easily.
#3 Overall stamina
Keeping a player hydrated before the game begins and especially during halftime can prevent poor performance in the second half of a game when others may be dropping off from exertion and slight dehydration.
Dehydration symptoms: Sudden exhaustion, feeling warmer than normal, dark or cloudy urine, sweating less than normal.

Our players are being coached by some of the best current and ex-football players and coaches in the pro-soccer world.

After linking with the Professional Football Association recently, EduKick Manchester has become an integral part of their Coach Education Program.
This program provides a quick and accessible way for these soccer professionals to get coaching experience, by offering them smart, capable students on whom to practice their coaching skills.
All the Edukick players, so long as they are fit and keep up their scores academically, will have the opportunity to meet and be coached by Michael Carrick, the England Star.

“What a great experience for the boys,” says Mick Brennan, director of Edukick Manchestere. “I bet most of their friends and family back home will be looking on with jealously at the chance these boys have to come, not only to one of the world’s best facilities, but be coached by a world class star.”

Our EduKick Manchester team will travel to the Carrington facilities, the training home of Manchester United Football Club, on a weekly basis so Michael can spend time instructing them.

During the first session last week, Michael and Merick, the head of Education at Manchester United, taught the EduKick players in two sessions. Michael was fantastic with the team, giving tips even after the session and just enjoying conversing with them.

“Hopefully, they can all take some real experience and knowledge from this, along with some great memories too. A massive ‘Thank You’ to Michael and all the team at the PFA for letting them have this chance. And well done to all the lads who were magnificent today here at Carrington. We look forward to the coming weeks,” offers Brennan.

It’s a credit to the student-players’ attitudes, effort and commitment that they were selected by the PFA and Michael to take part in this exciting program.
