Academy Training

Mission: To foster the enjoyment and love of the game in all players. To challenge and teach each child about the game in such a way they build a solid foundation in which will help develop and prepare them for future challenges in life both inside and outside of soccer. True enjoyment of something only increases ones desire to improve, in turn having success at improving further increases both enjoyment and the desire to continue improving. Our goal is to guide a player into that carousel; enjoyment of the game, desire of improvement, success at improving.

EYSC Weather Policy

Games will not be canceled for weather until roughly one hour before the scheduled game time, in most cases. EYSC will begin notifying all coaches that games are canceled as soon as that decision has been made, coaches are asked to notify their players/parents

We stick with this policy most of the time, due to possible changes in weather from one day to the next that have resulted in games being canceled prematurely in the past that could have been played in good conditions come Saturday morning. If rain is consistent for several days before Saturday that is when we may decide on Friday to cancel.
