Metro Fall 2018 Schedule - U14

Open to all Southeast Michigan communities. The program is designed around FUN and skills development for ages 11 through 14. All teams are Co-Ed and are coached by volunteer parents. Playing time is divided equally among all players. The Metro program has 2 divisions:  U12 & U14 (U stands for "Under"). The U12 division is comprised of 11&12 year olds and the U14 division is comprised of 13&14 year olds. ESFC teams compete against each other and against teams from the surrounding Metro area including Fraser, Roseville, and St. Clair Shores. ESFC offers two seasons per year, Fall and Spring.  Spring season runs early-April through early-June. Fall season runs early-September through early-November. Games are scheduled on Saturday mornings and Sunday mid-afternoons. Practice schedules are determined by each coach.

Consist of one reversible jersey (purchased via ESFC), black shorts, black socks, shin guards and cleats are suggested but not mandatory.

          Jersey cost:  $25 Youth or Adult
(Cash or Check at El's Boutique 17110 Kercheval, 313-571-3044)

Games are played at surrounding community municipal fields: Metro Field Addresses and Maps

The primary criteria for placement is to divide the players by age group, and elementary school and middle school area. Determine areas for the volunteer coaches.  Form teams around the coaches, using players from the same school area where possible, while maintaining the same gender ratio for all teams. Fill teams with players from areas that do not have enough coaches.  If we have more players than coaches, we will refund money to the players we are unable to place. Late registrants are added to teams that need players, regardless of school area. Some may not be placed.  The key thing to remember is that our goal is to place as many players as possible to promote good sportsmanship, healthier youth, improvement in soccer skills, and to have FUN!  Due to the popularity and size of our programs, we are unable to honor special requests for team placement

Eastside FC values the sacrifice parents make to volunteer for such an important position. A dedicated professional Recreation coach is on staff to help mentor and demonstrate practice plans for each volunteer coach. Additionally, one player registration fee will be waived/refunded for any parent accepted to volunteer as head coach.  A coaches meeting is held prior to the beginning of each season to help educate and mentor and a coaches packet is distributed with information to be used throughout the season. ESFC also provides several useful templates for coaches to utilize  - i.e. game lineup sheets, pitch sheets, and US Youth Soccer practice booklets by age group. Please consider volunteering.

Eastside FC has a strictly enforced ZERO TOLOREANCE POLICY, please read and understand clearly the penalties for violating. Decisions of the referees are final and should not be argued.
