New Boys & Girls Age Groups

Pre-K & Kindergarten Age Groups
We will have separate Boys & Girls age groups in our Pre-K (4 & 5 year old) and Kindergarten age groups! This change is due to registration trends over the past several years and the success of splitting our COED 1st Grade age group into separate Boys & Girls age groups.

EBYA Outdoor Soccer is held in the Spring, Summer (TBD - based upon interest & volunteers) and Fall of each year and is open to all boys and girls ages 4 to 18. EBYA is an all-volunteer non-profit organization and EBYA accepts players from all areas. The EBYA recreational soccer program provides instructional soccer for children of all ages and abilities. Our programs emphasize good sportsmanship, participation, team play, and fun, but at the same time, help develop confidence and self-esteem. Games for players in the 2nd/3rd Grade age group and older have State certified referees. 

EBYA is a volunteer organization that relies on the willingness of parents to volunteer to coach and help with other functions to keep the organization moving forward. Please step forward and offer to volunteer in some capacity.
