Marcus Kelcher's Comments:
"After many discussions between the two organizations, we are excited to announce that Kearney Soccer Club will become the second official Partner Club of Elite Academy. I feel that both clubs share a similar mission in that we are totally committed to putting the players first in all that we do. Both clubs have a passion for developing young people on and off the field and both clubs place a huge emphasis on helping guide our players in the college recruiting process. As an organization we are thrilled to be able to serve both the Kearney Soccer Club and western Nebraska as a whole for many years to come."
Chris Dunford's Comments:
"Having had the pleasure of watching and coaching talented Western and Central Nebraska players in the ODP environment and coaching against Kearney and Nebraska Select teams in league play it was clear that there are talented players outside of the the Omaha and Lincoln populations. With this partnership we hope to give the strongest players a further pathway for additional playing opportunities and exposure to collegiate recruitment as well as working together with Kearney Soccer Club to develop all of our players to the best of our abilities. It's another exciting development to be involved with and I look forward to seeing the benefits for both sides down the road"
Mike Munch, Kearney Soccer Club Director Of Coaching Comments:
"This partnership presents a great opportunity for the youth soccer player in Kearney and central Nebraska. Under Marcus Kelcher's leadership the Elite Girls/Boys Academy has become the top club in Nebraska and one of the top clubs in the Midwest. Being able to train and play with the Elite Academy players and under the Elite Academy coaches will allow our best players to continue their development in a truly "Elite" environment. Our club continues to grow and develop - thanks to Marcus for recognizing the talent in our community and offering this unique opportunity for our players."
