Children born in 2002-2013 who are interested in a more competitive playing experience with professional coaching should consider our Bay Oaks program. We are currently welcoming players for the 2020/21 season.
TEAM REGISTRATION - NOW OPEN!!!
The parent coach or team manager should register your EBU Rec team for the Fall 2020 Season. When you register a team, you will be asked to provide the name of two parent volunteers who will take the lead on coaching and managing the team, with support from EBU. One of those parents must be available to coach the team during practices and games. The second parent may be another coach, team manager, or other volunteer. When you register the team, you will be asked to provide the names of children that you know would like to play on your team. Priority placement will be giving to your returning players, then to any players you list who register on time. Additional "free agent" players may be placed on your team if there is space and demand. EBU is committed to making the game accessible for all, and we appreciate the support of all families in welcoming new players to their teams each year.
To set up a team, there is a $50 Team Registration Fee. Rec Team Registration fees will be fully refundable if we cannot play the Fall 2020 Season. We are working closely with Jack London Youth Soccer Sports League (JLYSSL) and the other local clubs to adapt programming as necessary. Our goal is to provide safe, quality, non-competitive soccer opportunities for local children, even if the traditional league play format is not an option. Before the season begins, each team will also be required to pay a refundable referee deposit, ranging from $150 - $400, depending on the age group of the team. This deposit will be returned to the team at the end of the season as long as the team meets its team referee requirements.
PLAYER REGISTRATION - Opens June 29th, 2020
Due to uncertainty around the timing of the start of the Fall Rec Season, we are only asking families to pay a $75 Player Registration Deposit. Once the general season schedule is confirmed, we will ask families to complete their registration payments. Rec Player Deposits will be refundable for any reason if requested before August 1, 2020.
Each player must register before being placed on an EBU Rec Team. When registering, you will have the option of requesting the following:
placement a specific team;
placement on the same team with one (1) of your child's friends;
placement on a team with children from a specific school.
We will do our best to accommodate these requests, but cannot always make it happen.* If you already played on a team, your spot on that team is guaranteed for the following season, as long as you register on time and that team forms.
Rec Player Registration for the 2020/21 Season is $300. This includes participation in the Fall and Spring Seasons
Fall Rec Season: 8-10 weeks; 1 practice per week + 1 weekend game + end of season Jack London Tournament.
Spring Rec Season: 8-10 weeks, 1 game per weekend + weekly Friday Clinics (optional); no weekday rec team practices during spring.
Players may choose not to play during spring for any reason; however, families will not be refunded.
