The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

The Evolving Game

the evolving game


50th Issue!

It all started in 2012. Chris Branscome, Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccers CEO, saw a need for a newsletter for coaches. The staff worked through ideas and looked at other publications. We determined the main focus for us would be articles and training sessions “written for coaches, by coaches.”


The format took shape with Mike Barr, Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer’s Technical Director, and myself as lead contributors. We never realized the potential of our monthly newsletter!


Now after fifty issues, a special thanks goes out to all our contributors and everyone who has taken time to read The Evolving Game!
