My my My my
Start of Fall Season

Parents and players of East Haven Youth Soccer,

Practice for In-House and Travel will start this week.  Schedules for practices are on-line.  

The micro and little kicks clinic will be held on Saturday mornings at 9:00am (Little Kicks) and 10:00am (Micros) - Starting August 31st .  All children must have shin pads and socks that are over the pads (balls will be provided).  Cleats are desirable, but not required.  Clinic shirts will be handed out at the clinic.  We ask that all players wear their clinic shirt every week.  Upon arriving at the field we will have a representative check the player into the clinic.  We are always looking for parent volunteers to help with the clinic program. If you would like to help please notify John Gildersleeve

In-House Boys and Girls
Games will be conducted Saturday mornings and early afternoon depending on the amount of teams.  Practices will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays 5:30-6:30 for Girls and 6:30-7:30 for Boys to start.  As darkness approaches, we will have to adjust our schedules. 

Please make sure that you check the start time of your child's game every week once players are selected to teams.  We will assign every team a different color, players will be placed on teams and uniforms will be given out before the 1st game. Please do not wear old shirts - they change each season as do the team rosters. 

All players must wear soccer cleats (no metal football or baseball cleats) or sneakers, shin pads, socks (over shin pads) to every practice and game and the supplied shirt to each game.

Please be 15 minutes early to your games, we continually have problems with parents bringing their children late for games, please adhere to the time requests when possible.  If you can not make it to the game for any reason, notification to the coach is of the utmost importance so other players can be brought in if needed (just RSVP to the reminder).  We don't want to cancel games for lack of players.  Parents sit on the opposite side of the field as the players.  Do not site behind the goals or on the players side of field. 

We are in critical need of for parent volunteers to help with our in-house boys and girls programs.  If you would like to help please notify the league.  What we need are parents to coach the games, and to assist our professional coach at practices.  You don't have to do both, whatever you are available to do.


Soccer cleats, height/age appropriate shin guards are a must, and the assigned complete  uniform.  Make sure that you are responding to the game/practice availability emails every time.  Coaches will base their practice drills on the amount of players that show up. Directions to almost every field in our state are posted on the website. 

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.

Fall 2019 Registrations

Fall 2019 - Registration is Open!

If you would like to volunteer as a coach, you must register on the registration page coach as well, this will allow EHYS to submit for your background check. Any questions regarding the new registration system can be directed to ehyspresident@gmail.com. 


The Fall Season runs from End of August to Mid-November.

The Registration Guarantee Deadline is August 1st for travel teams (2000-2010), Sept. 1st for our In-House 2010 - 2013 Program . Registrations could close after this date, if age groups are full.

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.

Please select the proper age group (travel or in-house) and for travel choose with or without uniform (without is for players that have previously purchased a travel uniform).

The In-house league and clinics include the shirts.

Lightning and Thunder Policy


Connecticut Junior Soccer Association Policy:

7. Lightning – Recognizing the threat. Apply the 30-30 rule: When you see lightning,

count the time until you hear thunder. If this time is 30 seconds or less, seek proper shelter.

If you can’t see the lightning, just hearing the thunder is a good back-up rule. Wait 30

minutes or more after hearing the last thunder before leaving shelter. Referees must protect

the safety of all participants by stopping game activities quickly, so that participants and

spectators may retire to a safer place before the lightning threat becomes significant.

Remember, if you can hear the thunder, you are within reach of lightning.

Linking Schedules to Calendars

Hi All,

We receive many inquiries about practices/games.  The easiest way to have the information with you at all times is to link your calendars on your cell phone, tablet, and/or computer to your child's schedule(s).  Here are the directions.  Once your child is placed on a team, simply follow this and your calendar will be live and updated as our website is update.  It also includes field locations.  For our in-house, you can do it now for practices Boys Practice/Girls Practice and once we place players on the team within the next week, you can add the team also.


Here are the directions that you have to do from your phone (you could do the same from your computer if you want it on your computer calendar also)

Click on team


If you need more than one team, choose multi-schedule, choose Spring 2016, and     click on all the teams you need, keep the default schedule type unless you need a different one.  Click Submit.


If you only have one team, choose division and team.  Then choose schedule.


Click options, calendar feed, and choose google (droids) or ical (iphones).  Now your calendar on your phone will keep the schedule, even as updates are made.

If you haven't done this - it is a must do!!!  For players with phones, have them do it also so everyone in the house knows their schedules at all times.
