Who can play?
Players in 4K through the 8th grade are invited to play in house soccer. Travel teams are formed starting at the u10 age group up until high school age if there is enough enrollment. We welcome players from all of the surrounding communities.
Where do we play?
All in house games are currently held at Race Track Park (located at the corner of Stoughton Rd and IKI Dr) on Saturday mornings. Travel teams will play home games in Edgerton, and road games will vary depending on opponent.
What equipment does my player need?
Shin guards are mandatory at all practices and games and should be worn under the soccer socks. Soccer cleats are beneficial but not required. An age appropriate size ball to bring to practice is also beneficial, but not a requirement as coaches will have team balls. All in-house players will receive an EYSA team shirt prior to the start of the season. Travel players will receive a dark and light jersey set.
What is the schedule or format?
Typically, there is one practice per week. The practice schedule is set at the discretion of the coaches. The coaches will inform their players of the practice and game schedules as soon as it is
received. Currently, there is one game per week held on Saturdays for all age groups.
Travel Club teams: Under 10, 12, 14, 16 and 19 boys teams and Under 10, 12, 14 and 19 girls teams will have a different schedule and practice structure – typically practicing 2 times per week and games on weekends.
How do I find out when the registration is open for the season?
Generally, EYSA will publish facebook message and send an email to all present and past participants. Also, registration forms will be available at Edgerton Community, Edgerton Yahara and Edgerton Middle Schools. You may also download the from this website and send in the registration form with your check. Instructions are on the form.
What are the fees to participate?
The information will be broadcasted on facebook as the season registration opens. Please follow us on facebook to find the most updated information. The fees are used to pay for practice equipment, referees, insurance, field maintenance and equipment. Additional funds are generated through donations from local business in the Edgerton as well as the surrounding communities.
I sent my registration and payment in and have not heard a response from EYSA. What should I do?
Generally, EYSA will finalize the rosters about 2 weeks prior to the start of the season. During this time, we are attempting to obtain coaches, referees and schedule games. Your patience is greatly appreciated since the coaches who are also volunteers, are receiving the rosters and instructions. They will contact you as soon as they can. If you would like to help coach a team, that would greatly help in establishing teams faster and getting the rosters out to the respective coaches.
Why doesn't EYSA play on full size fields?
EYSA's PDI (player development initiative) is consistent with the philosophy of the US Youth Soccer and Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association where adapting the field to the size and skill of the player in the specific age group will allow the most frequent touches on the ball to help in the player development process. Please refer to "Why play small sided games" on the coaches / managers page.
