Mail-In Registration Instructions:

  1. Grade, on the form, refers to the Fall 2020 grade level.
  2. Circle COACH! We will fit the practices around your availability. You get to request a handful of players, too.
  3. Pay by check or add a note to bill you and we'll send you a Square invoice.
  4. We need a copy of a birth certificate or passport if your child is playing for the first time.
  5. Age range: Sept 1, 2015 to Dec 31, 2002.
  6. All players that qualify for Free or Reduced student lunch qualify for financial aid (link below). Please send BOTH a registration form AND the Financial Aid form.


Our teams are formed by grade level (kindergarten through 8th grade) and by calendar year for the high school players.

Rec soccer depends upon VOLUNTEER COACHES to head each team. We hope to have approximately 100 teams again this year. That means that we need at least 90 volunteers (a few of you will actually coach multiple teams. ) Coaching is a great way to give back to the community and control your schedule at the same time.  Please volunteer to coach your child’s team!

We have a great training program, supply all the equipment, build the practice schedule around your availability and, if you can coach two teams, we can guarantee (with rare exceptions – coaching two high school age teams) that you won’t have a conflict on game days. 

Teams are formed in July and practices will begin when EUSD re-opens the week of Aug 19. We play from Sept 12 until the weekend before Thanksgiving.
