Essex United is a Spring only soccer club.
We hold tryouts in the Fall so we can create team rosters based on like skilled players and the number of players registered for each age group to play in the spring. Based on these teams we recruit volunteer coaches for each age group. Once the coaches are assigned (usually October timeframe) they will reach out to the players and parents to have a Fall team meeting.
Based on the coaches availability some teams may elect to participate in an indoor league. This is voluntary for the players and does not affect their standing with the team in the spring. Alternatively, some teams may choose to hold some indoor training sessions throughout the winter. Again, this is voluntary and does not affect the players status for the spring. In either case there is an additional cost to the player depending on the number of players who would like to participate and the cost of the event.
EUSC may offer from time to time some “Pool Training” options that will be open to all age groups based on a specific skill (i.e. dribbling, using open space, etc..). These training options will be sent out to all registered players well in advance of the date and will be free of charge to any EUSC member.
All winter training is optional and will vary by coach and team. However, you must be committed to the spring roster in order to participate in any optional winter training.
