The NEPA Miners have announced that they will join the Elite Football League for the 2012 football season. The Elite Football Association (EFA) is proud to announce the launching of their league. With this new league, the world of Minor League Football is being introduced to a new brand of football. Organizations sharing a common vision to conduct a new way of business at the adult amateur football level will pioneer the EFA into 2012 and beyond. The EFA has an opportunity to change the landscape of minor league football nationwide.
The Elite Football Association is dedicated to creating the best teaching environment for all of its players to learn the skills in football and life, in order to reach their personal and professional goals. We strive to have each person associated with the league to be a success on and off the field.
In football, we are an adult amateur league operating at the minor league level. It is open to ages 18 on up, with the primary focus on being the premier developmental league for players ages 18-26. Our teams will consist of players with previous playing experience in high school, college, minor league, CFL, and NFL. Teams will focus on assisting players in developing the skills and techniques necessary to earn their way into college to get an education and possibly pursue a career in professional football.
The EFA is proud to have five well-known teams leading the way for the upcoming season. The Central Penn Piranha, New Jersey Lions, NEPA Miners, Lehigh Valley Storm, and Philadelphia Phoenix have all chosen to be an Elite team. Additional teams joining the EFA will be announced in the near future. Official league play will begin in 2012.
EFA teams will receive the ultimate minor league football experience, as well as guidance and league support. Players will compete at quality venues against competitive programs, thus creating a true minor league football experience for themselves and their fans.
