Start of Spring Season

Parents and players of East Haven Youth Soccer,
 

We are starting In-House boys and girls practice next week.  Travel practices have already started.  Until the fields are dry, we are practicing at East Haven High School Turf Field.   We are there as guests, so please follow the rules below:

1) Do not allow siblings to climb on any equipment or run around the stadium bleachers or underneath.  

2) Do not bring any animals into the area.

3) Parents are allowed to walk around the track.

4) Do not leave any empty bottles or trash on field.

5) If any high school sports teams are on the field or track, players and parents are not allowed to enter the track/field fenced in area until they leave, no matter what time.

In-House games and Clinics will tentatively start on April 21st, as long as weather permits


Clinic:
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 and early afternoon depending on the amount of teams.  Practices will be on Tuesdays 5:30-6:30 for Girls and 6:30-7:30 for boys.  We are looking to add in a Footskills extra training, and will notify you as it is finalized shortly.

For the In-House practices, we have brought in Mercy Baldino as our professional coach.  She is a graduate of East Haven Youth Soccer, has played Premier for many years, played for Houghton College and the East Haven Women's team, coached  our U19 girls team, the Freshmen Girls team at Daniel Hand High School, and is currently an assistant coach for the South Central Premier U17 Girls Team.

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 (no metal football or baseball 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.  What we need are parents to coach the games, and to assist our professional coach at practices.  You don't have to do both, whatever you are available to do.
 

Travel:

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 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.

Spring Soccer Registrations

 

Spring Registrations are open. Please click on Register Now Button. The Spring Season runs from the Middle/End of April till the end of June. 

 

The Registration Guarantee Deadline is March 4th for travel teams, April 1st for our In-House 2008-2011 Program . Registrations for players born in 2011 and above that meet the deadline will also receive a $10 discountRegistrations could close after this date, if age groups are full

The past few seasons, EHYS has brought in many professional coaches due to the lack of parent volunteers.  Due to the added costs, many of our programs have had to add moderate increases. 

If players are playing on a Premier Soccer Club, then please contact the President to discuss playing travel, if you are not sure if they can do both.  Most premier organizations prefer that their kids play town soccer to increase their touches.

If players can’t commit to practices and weekend games, then they should probably not join.  Commitment doesn’t mean every practice and game, but making it occasionally 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 previously purchased a uniform).

The clinic, in-house and 1999-2004 teams include the shirts.

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.
