Spring 2023 Registrations Open

 


East Haven Youth Soccer is using the Sports Connect site for Registration only.   You can get there by clicking the button above or using this link:

https://clubs.bluesombrero.com/Default.aspx?tabid=817874


Please contact us via email if you have any questions or problems with registration and we will try and assist you.

The Spring Season runs April to end of June

If players can't commit to practices and weekend games, then they should probably not join unless they are playing Premier Soccer in addition. Commitment doesn't mean every practice and game, but making it occasionally is not acceptable either. Soccer is a game where touching the ball is where you learn. By only going to games or only going to practices the players tend to get lost and not enjoy the game and we want them to learn and love the game. Please sign them up when they are available and ready to play. Playing multiple sports during the same season is difficult, and the recent trend of parents pulling their kids from teams once the schedules are compared is not fair to anyone and refunds will not be given.

The Registration Program will only allow you to select the program(s) that your child is eligible for (based on birth date).

The In-house league and clinics include the shirts.

All players and parents are asked to be respectful at all times when at East Haven Youth Soccer functions. All players either from East Haven or other surrounding towns are out there giving everything they have.  They deserve our respect.  Parents are the key to teaching our players how to be courteous winners and gracious losers.  

Keep an eye on the website, keep an eye on the website, it can't be said enough.  We do not cancel games/practices just because of weather.  Do not assume a game or practice is canceled, check the website.   

East Haven does not allow pets on the fields.  Please leave them at home!!!  Your pet may be kid friendly but not all kids are pet friendly, this is a place for kids to play, not be scared to get bitten. 

Be sure to lock your vehicles when leaving them unattended and keep an eye on all your property.

Starting 2023 with sunshine and soccer

The U12 boys and U12 Girls took advantage of the great New Year's Day weather to get some soccer in as they prepare for their Indoor League which starts next weekend.  East Haven will have 4 teams in the leagues as players from the High School Boys and Girls teams will also be playing.   Hope everyone else got to enjoy the great weather!

Referees

Hi All,

Youth Soccer in CT is always short of referees.  Without referees, games can't be played.  Many of our players join the rank of referees as they join our travel teams by refereeing our in-house games.  It's a great source of income for our youth.

As they get older, they require certification.  This allows them to referee all over CT, including tournaments.  Even for adults, it is a great source for extra income.  With the CT Sportsplex in our backyard, many EH referees are able to add games there to supplement their income made in East Haven.  

If you or your child is interested in joining the referee ranks, you can contact Bryan Szewc at ehysreferee@gmail.com
