SOCCER FOR ALL
Over the past few months the Board of Directors of HMMS Youth Soccer Association ("HMMS") has been engaging in a lot of important conversations. We have been looking at ways to improve service, access, and outcomes in all of our programs. Through these dialogues, we realized that HMMS needs to grow and change to meet the needs of our local community and there are some things that, as an organization, we must do better.
One of the most important questions that was asked, "what or who is HMMS?" started a critical conversation. One that has shaped our vision for the future.
We are an organization that is unique in Central Pennsylvania offering a wide range of soccer related programs. We institute programs that not only introduce players to the game, but also allows athletes to compete at the highest levels. Since the founding of Hampden Youth Soccer Association in 1976 (the predecessor to HMMS), our mission has stayed consistent. But over the years, there has been some unintended confusion. Some teams have worn the HMMS Logo, while others have worn the Eagle F.C. Crest. Beginning now, it is time to be known by a single name - Eagle Futbol Club ("Eagle F.C.") or ("EFC").
Under the guidance of Executive Director, David Burgee, Eagle F.C. has started crafting a vision of what is possible. We have started creating new paths that enhance the soccer programs that you know and love. We will be offering new training and educational opportunties, including Elite/Premier Summer Camps. In the coming days and weeks, look for announcements about a new website, webstore, and special events.
