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 programs into one session.

Registration is now open!

COVID SAFETY: Please click HERE for our current COVID safety protocol. 

Please check for symptoms each day before heading to Eastside.

If your child has symptoms, tests positive for COVID, or is identified as a close contact to someone who tested positive at any point during the Winter Academy, please keep them home and contact Terri Farrell at [email protected] to determine a return-to-play plan. 

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‚Äôs 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? 
No uniform or jersey necessary. Shin guards and a soccer ball are required. Comfortable shorts and shirt, soccer socks, sneakers or soccer cleats (no baseball or football cleats), and a water bottle are recommended. Players must wear shin guards under socks.
