While Bilotta was were still a teenager, something happened that would change his life forever. He was selected to play on a team from Northern California that went to Germany (then called West Germany) to play a series of matches against German youth teams.
The teenage soccer player had the experience of his life and he has credited that trip with being instrumental in his development as a youth. “It completely changed the way I looked at the world and myself,” said Bilotta, who would go on to learn Spanish and Italian as an adult. “I can easily trace my interest in languages back to that trip I took as a kid. I remember feeling a sense of confidence upon returning home, I new that I was wiser and it made me feel special.”
EduKick Officials & Staff Professional Background
EduKick President & Founder, Joey Bilotta (seen here addressing the EduKick Spain 2004 Class), played Division 1 college soccer at St. Mary’s College of California (graduating in Psychology, 1986) and then went on to play professionally in Spain and in the U.S. (in the former American Professional Soccer League, A.P.S.L.) during his twenties. Bilotta began playing soccer at age six, thanks to the Austrian father of his best neighborhood friend; now 46 years old, Bilotta continues to play top-level amateur soccer (Over-30) with Oakville MCM SC in Ontario, Canada.
Bilotta (at right) continued to be very involved in the game after retiring from pro ball in 1991. In fact, during the U.S. hosted 1994 World Cup, Bilotta was hired to be the official World Cup “spokesperson” for the California State Lottery. In that capacity, he appeared throughout the state in special events promoting the U.S. World Cup and youth soccer.
