Abbey Villa Soccer Club
Hill House United Coach Supplier
Abbey Villa S.C. ("AVSC") emphasizes a player-centered development approach based on the Dutch principle of play. This philosophy emphasizes developing complete players, technically and tactically, so they can perform in any situation on the field. AVSC's player development model focuses on building each player's technical ability within a controlled "pass and move" style of soccer with the objective to maintain possession of the ball. It believes that players at a young age (U8 to U18) taught to play this way will develop superior first touch and when older can easily adjust to a more direct ("kick and rush") game if and when the tactics demand.
Teddy Ebersol's Red Sox Fields and Parking
The Ebersol fields are home to United Soccer. Located right on the Esplanade, these fields can best be accessed by the MBTA on the red line (Charles/MGH), as well as the orange and green lines (North Station/Science Park). By foot they are best accessible via the footbridges at corner of Charles St & Cambridge St or at the bottom of Blossom St. Parking is limited, and currently the small lot accessible off of Storrow Drive is closed due to construction. Aside from this space, metered parking is available on Blossom St, Charles St, Cambridge St, and across the bridge in Cambridge (Kendall Square) within walking distance. If crpooling, the Mass Eye & Ear lot offers affordable Saturday rates.
