JOINING BAY OAKS

Players born in 2004 – 2015 

East Bay United Soccer Club is welcoming new players to the Bay Oaks competitive soccer program for the 2022-23 season. 

This year our process for welcoming and evaluating new players will be different depending on the younger age groups of U8-U13 (2015-2010 birth years) compared to U14-U19 (2009-2004 birth years). All younger players interested in Bay Oaks competitive soccer program will go through a traditional age group tryout, starting Monday, May 16th for Girls and Tuesday, May 17th for Boys.

All older players will be evaluated in the team training environment alongside children who already play for Bay Oaks. Players will be evaluated for 1-2 weeks (2-3 training sessions). After the evaluation period, members of the coaching staff will reach out to each family about their child’s team placement with Bay Oaks.

Thank you for your interest in regards to our club! We hope that together we can create a community of footballers and fans that enjoy a distinct way of playing.

Registration for Tryouts are available here
