About EBYA Outdoor Soccer

EBYA Outdoor Soccer is held in the Spring, Summer and Fall of each year and is open to all boys and girls ages 4 to 18 (Kindergarten and up in the Summer). 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 7 and above have current 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.

Teams will be assigned a practice night based off of the coaches preference.

Our format is one practice per week and one game per week.
Practices are one night a week and are scheduled for one hour.
Game are played on Saturday mornings or afternoons.

We plan for our season to be 9 to 10 weeks long for a total of 9 or 10 games.
We attempt to makeup as many rainouts as possible.
