Along with former Professional and Director of Coaching Rich Balchan, Mr. Petruzzi helps oversee U6-U13 development. Mr. Petruzzi’s core beliefs regarding soccer development are based on grass roots development through ball mastery, technical training focusing on each player getting thousands of touches per session, along with small-sided games to recreate game like environments while allowing maximum repetition on training session topics.
Petruzzi became club president in May of 2020. With a wealth of business growth, development, and management experience, Petruzzi oversees the overall growth, development, and pathway of HEFC along with DOC Rich Balchan. Petruzzi has created local turned national brands including YoGo Factory, 1000 Degrees Pizza, Island Sun Tanning, and more. With an extensive marketing and leadership skillset, Petruzzi’s #1 goal remains the overall growth of the club as well as uniform player development across all levels of play, from recreational to our top academy teams.
