Our Academy program is focused on developing the next generation of soccer players by providing them with the tools and skills enabling them to advance and be competitive at the State, Regional, and National Level.
The program is designed to supplement all club activities permitting the committed soccer player to gain exposure to a higher level of training than the player would typically receive in their club team. All of the teams make every effort to avoid conflicts with Club and/or League activities.
PLAYER DEVELOPMENT and good sportsmanship are the primary goals of our program.
The Academy Program
The Academy Program is open to all current registered EHYSL players in good standing.
Teams will be organized as early as possible in the Fall season. Initially the program will concentrate on the U10-U14 age groups (Boys and Girls) with tryouts for the U15-U17 age groups later in the fall after High School season.
