East Side Sports offers a recreational soccer league during the fall for children ages 3 – Grade 8. The program is designed to provide players of all skill levels with an opportunity to participate in a fun, instructional soccer program. ESS fall soccer includes three programs: (1) A 3-division league of developmentally-appropriate soccer teams for children ranging from Grades K – 5, (2) an in-house instructional program for players in Grades 6 – 8 with weekly competitive games, and (3) a Sunday afternoon beginners clinic for children ages 3 to 4. All programs are co-ed and staffed by volunteer parents. Typcially, teams in the K – 8 divisions practice one time per week, with games on Sunday afternoon at the beautifiul Wheeler Farm athletic fields in Seekonk, MA. Practices and games are at the same time each week, which supports a family atmosphere and an enjoyable Sunday afternoon.
ESS offers three divisions for players in Grades K – 5: Division I is specially designed for children entering Kindergarten or 1st Grade (this fall), Division II is for children entering Grades 2 – 3, and Division III is for children in Grades 4 – 5. There are special rules for each division to ensure that every child plays an equal amount of time, the competition level is appropriate, and everyone learns to enjoy being a member of a team. Parent support of the philosophy of the league is essential and, thus, ensures a positive experience for all.
While we expect families to make a reasonable committment to attending practices and games, we understand that activities such as family obligations, religious holidays, etc. should take precedence in our busy schedules. We encourage parents to achieve an appropriate balance in scheduling activities for their children and, therefore, East Side Sports programs are designed to contribute positively to family life.
Games for the 2018 season BEGIN on Sunday, September 9 and run through November 4 (with NO GAMES over Columbus Day weekend).
