Welcome to the Club

High School Summer Program Information HERE

Fall 2019 Registration Open Now Through July 1st!

Welcome to our new site. Click on Register Here banner and create an account to register for the Fall season.

Fall soccer is open to boys and girls born 2006-2011, typically entering grades 3-8. Players born in 2005 may register if they will still be in 8th grade. New players must provide a copy of a birth certificate upon registration as well as a small photo for the child's player pass.

Costs: $70 per player $80 additional uniform cost. Uniforms may be used for multiple seasons and individual items can be ordered separately. Families experiencing financial hardship can apply for fee waivers by emailing easthaddamsoccerclub@yahoo.com

Uniform Change: After using the same uniforms for more than a decade, we switched brands this spring. If you did not purchase a new uniform this spring, please order one for the fall season. We have found that the youth sizes run slender. This is not our usual brand so please look at size charts when ordering. Simple chart available here and more thorough charts here.

Practices start in mid-August with games running from September through early November. In the fall we have 2 practices and 1 game a week for a total of 8 games, 4 home and 4 away. We play other teams in the Southeastern District. Each child will play at least half of each game. Our U9/U10 players play on small fields, 7v7. U11/U12 teams play 9v9 on mid-sized fields. U13/U14 teams play 11v11 on standard fields.

New Competition Levels for the Fall: We anticipate entering several club teams in our district's new middle level of competion and others in the less competitive Rec Plus division.

Teams: We anticipate several teams divide by gender and age group. Age group is determined by birth year.

U10 Boys (birth years 2011-2010)

U10 Girls (2011-2010)

U12 Boys (2009-2008)

U12 Girls (2009-2008)

U14 Coed (2007-2006 and older players still in 8th grade): We are likely to have low numbers in this age group due to the concurrent middle school teams.

For any club players who are also playing on the middle school team, all club practices are optional.

Summer Placement Sessions

If a player's age group has enough players for multiple teams (U10 boys and likely U12 boys), that player will be required to attend placement sessions during the summer. These sessions are run similarly to a practice. The purpose of placement sessions is to enable coaches to place players on teams that provide an appropriate level of competition for each player.

Register on time!

Players who register after 7/1 will be charged a $10 late fee and may be put on a waiting list. It takes time to order uniforms, organize teams and complete all the needed steps to approve our rosters with the district. We are anticipating that some age groups will fill up, so late registrants may be turned away. Other age groups may have low numbers. So if you don't register on time you may find yourself without a uniform or with a team that has been cancelled or is full. Your player might also miss summer placement sessions.

Thank-you for your patience as the club navigates multiple changes.
