My my My my
Start of Fall Season

Parents and players of East Haven Youth Soccer,

We are starting In-House boys and girls and Travel U12 boys and girls and U15 girls this week.

Clinics will start on Aug. 26th.

The micro and little kicks clinic will be held on Saturday mornings at 9:00am (Little Kicks) and 10:00am (Micros).  All children must have shin pads and socks that are over the pads (balls will be provided).  Cleats are desirable, but not required.  Clinic shirts will be handed out at the clinic.  We ask that all players wear their clinic shirt every week.  Upon arriving at the field we will have a representative check the player into the clinic.  We are always looking for parent volunteers to help with the clinic program. If you would like to help please notify John Gildersleeve

In-House Boys and Girls
Games will be conducted Saturday mornings, starting date is still TBD, but will be communicated.  Practices will either be on Mondays for Girls and Wednesdays for boys.  To begin with, we will practice Mondays and Wednesdays for both groups so that we get in extra practices.  You will be notified of times and days as we progress through the season (due to sunlight, we will have to change as the season goes). 

In addition, as we did in the Fall, we will offer extra training on Fridays for both groups concentrating on footskills.

Please make sure that you check the start time of your child's game every week once players are selected to teams.  We will assign every team a different color, players will be placed on teams and uniforms will be given out before the 1st game. Please do not wear old shirts - they change each season as do the team rosters. 

All players must wear soccer cleats or sneakers, shin pads, socks (over shin pads) to every practice and game and the supplied shirt to each game.


Please be 15 minutes early to your games, we continually have problems with parents bringing their children late for games, please adhere to the time requests when possible.  If you can not make it to the game for any reason, notification to the coach is of the utmost importance so other players can be brought in if needed (just RSVP to the reminder).  We don't want to cancel games for lack of players.  Parents sit on the opposite side of the field as the players.  Do not site behind the goals or on the players side of field. 

We are in desperate need of for parent volunteers to help with our in-house boys and girls programs.  If you would like to help please notify the league.


Soccer cleats, height/age appropriate shin guards are a must, and the assigned complete  uniform.  Make sure that you are responding to the game/practice availability emails every time.  Coaches will base their practice drills on the amount of players that show up. Directions to almost every field in our state are posted on the website. 

All players and parents are asked to be respectful at all times when at East Haven Youth Soccer functions. All players either from East Haven/North Branford or other surrounding towns are out there giving everything they have.  They deserve our respect.  Parents are the key to teaching our players how to be courteous winners and gracious losers.  

Keep an eye on the website, keep an eye on the website,it can't be said enough.  We do not cancel games/practices just because of weather.  Do not assume a game or practice is canceled, check the website.   

East Haven does not allow pets on the fields.  Please leave them at home!!!  Your pet may be kid friendly but not all kids are pet friendly, this is a place for kids to play, not be scared to get bitten. 

Be sure to lock your vehicles when leaving them unattended and keep an eye on all your property.

Referee Certifications

The entry level referee program is now open.  The candidate has to turn 13 by 12/31/17 to register. Once the entire program is complete (online training, online testing and a 5 hour in person session) the referee can begin officiating and will be certified through the end of 2018.


From the homepage:


The Entry Level Training Process is a combination of an On-Line Training Course to be completed at your own pace and once completed registration and attendance to (1) in-person/in-class session of 5 hours.


The registration for the online portion of Session #1 is open through 8/31/2017 with the required in-person sessions starting approximately August 5th and ending on September 10th.

Grade 8 Referee - 2nd Entry Level Training session registration and access to the online modules will open 1/15/18 and will close 3/18/18.Once the online modules are complete you will register for and attend one required "in-person" session.


The required "in-person" 2nd sessions will start 1/28/18 and run through 4/2/18.At least one "in-person" session will be available on a first come first serve basis almost every weekend somewhere in the state in that time period. Check the CSRP Event Calendar for dates. 


There is a link to the detailed instructions on the homepage. https://www.ctreferee.net/files/referee_instructions/entry_level_instructions_30Jun17.pdf




In addition, there are several in service clinics posted.  This year the in service clinics will emphasize the 2017/2018 law changes, US Soccer Small Sided Initiatives, Teamwork and Signals and the phsychology of officiating.  Please encourage the referees in your pool to register.

Fall Soccer Registrations

Fall Registrations are open. Please click on Register Now Button. The Fall Season runs approximately from the End of August till the end of October.

The Registration Guarantee Deadline is July 15th for travel teams (Birth Years 2003-2008), August 15th for Under 8 and Under 10 (Birth Years 2008-2011) In-House programs. Registrations for U8 and above that meet the deadline will also receive a $10 discount.  Registrations could close after this date, if age groups are full.

This season we are looking at putting together separate boys and girls program for U7-U9/10.   In addition, we are encouraged players that are U10 (born 2008) to play on our U10/U12 travel team if they are ready for that level (physically and emotionally).  Remember, the new system in the USA is misleading, so though they may call something U10, but all players are 8 and 9 in the Fall time that are in the U10 age year as their soccer age goes by the end of 2018.

This past year we had many players that could not commit to the teams and made it very difficult for the rest of the league.  If players can't commit to practices and weekend games, then they should probably not join (exceptions for practice would be Middle School Soccer Players and Premier Players).  Commitment doesn't mean every practice and game, but making it once in a while is not acceptable either.  Soccer is a game where touching the ball is where you learn. By only going to games or only going to practices the players tend to get lost and not enjoy the game and we want them to learn and love the game.  Please sign them up when they are available and ready to play.  Playing multiple sports during the same season is difficult, and the recent trend of parents pulling their kids from teams once the schedules are compared is not fair to anyone and refunds will not be given.

Please select the proper age group and for travel choose with or without uniform (without is for players that have purchased the new style gold uniform worn in the last two years). The clinic and in-house prices include the shirt.

The East Haven Women’s Team just completed a successful Indoor Soccer campaign, going 10-0 at the CT Sportsplex and winning the Championship Game with a score of 5-3. 

Ashley Mazzucco, the team’s leading scorer for the season, scored a hat trick in the championship game.  Bethanny Scofield and Allison Hanlon also scored for the ladies. 

The team originated last winter in an indoor league after competing in the Alumni game in 2015 and also competed in a summer league in 2016.

Volunteers Needed

East Haven Youth Soccer is run by all volunteers.  As such, to continue providing soccer to the youth of East Haven, we need to continue to add people to the administration group as parents leave our group which is a natural progression as children age.  Currently, EHYS has plenty of need for help.  Most positions require very little work besides attending a meeting once a month and being available to do the assigned tasks of the position. 

If you are interested in becoming part of the East Haven Youth Soccer Administration, please contact me to discuss.

Current Support Needed:

Coaches – coaches are needed at every level, from clinic to all travel teams.  The level of commitment depends on the age group.  Clinics are just Saturday Mornings.   U8 and U10 require 1 to 2 nights a week and a game on the weekend.  Travel requires 2 nights and games during the weekend.

Clinic Attendant - sign players in each week to ensure that all players are attending

District Representative:  This person would represent EHYS at a monthly District Meeting (3rd Tuesday of each month) and attend our monthly meeting (usually the 3rd Thursday of each month).  

Equipment Manager:  This person would work with the treasure to order  equipment and supplies as needed.

Other positions that are currently occupied are possible also, just contact me if you are interested.

Thank You,

John Gildersleeve

Linking Schedules to Calendars

Hi All,

We receive many inquiries about practices/games.  The easiest way to have the information with you at all times is to link your calendars on your cell phone, tablet, and/or computer to your child's schedule(s).  Here are the directions.  Once your child is placed on a team, simply follow this and your calendar will be live and updated as our website is update.  It also includes field locations.  For our U8/U10, you can do it now for practices (U8 or U10 boys or girls) and once we place players on the team within the next week, you can add the team also.


Here are the directions that you have to do from your phone (you could do the same from your computer if you want it on your computer calendar also)

Click on team


If you need more than one team, choose multi-schedule, choose Spring 2016, and     click on all the teams you need, keep the default schedule type unless you need a different one.  Click Submit.


If you only have one team, choose division and team.  Then choose schedule.


Click options, calendar feed, and choose google (droids) or ical (iphones).  Now your calendar on your phone will keep the schedule, even as updates are made.

If you haven't done this - it is a must do!!!  For players with phones, have them do it also so everyone in the house knows their schedules at all times.
