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.
