Athletic director Pat Briley and Ecclesia College have announced immediate plans for two soccer fields, they will be built on the west side of campus with expectations of completion by Summer 2018. "The construction of two soccer fields on the EC campus is a turning point in the EC's soccer program. Instead of having to scramble, pay outlandish field fees, we will now be able to play on our own fields and have a home field advantage for the first time. Additionally, we will be able to host tournaments and rent out our fields for the community where there is a shortage of soccer fields. This will all result in a large increase in recruiting, visability, and a positive impact in the community." said Briley in a statement.
Scheduled to begin this fall, the fields will begin with leveling off of the area with all sodding to be done in the sping of 2018. Both men's and women's soccer teams will be practicing and playing their home games on site beginning in the fall of 2018.
The women's team is coached by Ana Lopez, who just completed her first season at the helm she can be reached by email at email@example.com. The men's team is coached by Eduardo ramirez who also just completed his first season, he can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Both coaches are in the thick of recruiting season at this time and are very excited for the future of Ecclesia Soccer.
