Winter Indoor Recreation Program

Winter Rec Academy

The Eastside FC winter recreation program is changing for the 2021-2022 session. The goal is to give ESFC recreation players and families access to our select coaching staff for technical skills training along with game play - no volunteer parent coaches needed! Each weekend session will feature skills training and small sided games to combine the format of youth academy and recreation games in one [60 minute] session.
An announcement will be sent when registration opens 

Tentative Schedule:

U5/U6: 9:30 am
U7/8: 11:30 am
U9/10: 1:00 pm
U12/U14: 3:00 pm

My child has never played soccer, is this the right program for players new to the sport?
Absolutely, the Eastside FC recreation program is perfect for introducing your son or daughter to soccer. The program is focused on fun and basic skill development.  Thousands of young players in our community got their start in Eastside’s recreation program.

Which age group is my son or daughter eligible to play in? 
The "U" in each age group stands for under.  So, a U7 division is for players who are under 7 years old.  In the recreation division the cutoff date is August 1st of each year. Meaning,  if your son or daughter is under 7 years old on August 1st, they would be eligible to play in the U7 division in the fall, winter and the spring season in the following year. The only exception to this rule is the U14 team; any player currently in the 8th grade or lower is eligible for the U14 division. 
How do I register for the program? 
Simply log in to your Eastside FC account by clicking on the "Log In" at the top of this page.   If you do not have a Eastside FC account, go ahead and create one by following the prompts after clicking the "Register" button.  Please remember your username and password as you will need it to access your account in the future. 

What equipment will my child need? 
Uniforms consist of a reversible jersey which is available for purchase at TBD for $30. Black shorts, black socks, shin guards and cleats are recommended. 

What color jersey does the Home team wear? 
Home team wears GREEN!

How are teams formed? 
Players are organized by age group and when possible, children who go to school together will be placed on the same team.  We also strive to maintain the same boy to girl ratio across teams. 

Can I request to be placed on a team with a specific player? 
We will attempt to honor all special requests as long as we’re able to maintain a good competitive balance across teams. Special requests are less likely to be honored if the player is signs up late in the registration process.


When will game schedules be available? 
Schedules for games will typically be available on your team page 7-10 days prior to the start of the season.

When will the team practice? 
Teams do not practice during the winter sessions. 

What resources are available for volunteer coaches?
Eastside FC Coaching Resources web page includes practice plans and tips on how to create a fun and enjoyable experience the players and parents.  We have professional coaching staff that are also available to help answer any questions the volunteer coaches may have.  All coaches, board members and volunteers also received concussion awareness training and go through a background check process prior to participating in any club related activities.
