My my My my
Start of Fall Season

Parents and players of East Haven Youth Soccer,

Practice for In-House and Travel will start as soon as the fields dry up.  Schedules for practices are on-line.  

The Micro clinic will be held on Saturday mornings at 9:00am (for players born 7-1-2017 through 12-31-2018) and 10:00am (for players born 1-1-2016 through 6-30-2017) - Starting September 4th (no clinics Sept. 11th due to East Haven Road Race Road Closures) .  All children should have shin pads and socks that are over the pads (balls will be provided, please dont have your child bring their ball).  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 at ehyspresident@gmail.com

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 Boys and 6:30-7:30 for Girls 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.  Players are encouraged to bring their own ball to practices (not games).   Size 3 is the size that will be used.   

Games will start Sept. 11th (modified scheduled due to East Haven Road Race).  

Please be 10 minutes early to your games, we have issues 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 league  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.  If you would like to help please notify John Gildersleeve at ehyspresident@gmail.com


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.  Players should bring their own size 4 ball to practices.  


Additional Reminders for All


Covid Updates:   As the state updates requirements, EHYS will update parents.  Remember, if the child is sick, keep them home.  Currently, the State Guidances are below:

Masks In alignment with current youth sport recommendations, athletes, regardless of vaccination status, will not be required to wear masks during outdoor activities, practice,or competition. There is no requirement outdoors for bench personnel or spectators. When indoors (indoor practice, games, etc.) masks should be worn in alignment with current executive orders pertaining to mask requirements.

Spectator Attendance Notwithstanding the above, permissible spectator attendance and regulations may be governed by local club, facility and or local municipality. 


Fully vaccinated players/coaches who are a close contact with a known COVID-19 case do not have to quarantine from sports or other activities, provided they remain asymptomatic after close contact with a known COVID-19 case and wear a mask until receiving a negative COVID-19 test (taken between days 3 and 5 from the date of contact) or 14 days without a test.

Unvaccinated players/coaches who remain asymptomatic after close contact with a known COVID-19 case will need to quarantine for 10 days (with a negative test between days 7 and 10) or 14 days without a test.

Vaccinated and unvaccinated players/coaches who experience COVID-19 symptoms after close contact with a known COVID-19case will need to quarantine for 10 days (with a negative test between days 7 and 10) or 14 days without a test.


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.  

Parents should provide their players with bug spray or spray them prior to practice.

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 Season

Fall 2021 - Registration is Open!

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

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

Any questions regarding the new registration system can be directed to ehyspresident@gmail.com. 
We will continue to update this website as questions are asked and more information becomes available.

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

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 that your child is eligible for (based on birth date).

The In-house league and clinics include the shirts.

AGES AND FEES: Programs are grouped by birth date:

Micros Clinic- Birth Years 2016, 2017, 2018 (Fee $75) - Still accepting Regsistrations

In House League- Birth Years 2013-2015 (Fee $100) - Still accepting Registrations

Travel - 2010-2012 (Fee $125) - Uniforms are additional and can be used for multiple seasons.  They can be selected during the registration process (offered as separate components in case parents only need to replace a part of the uniform package)

Congrats to U12 Girls Division Champions

Big Congratulations to the U12 Girls team for winning the South Central Distric League championship on Saturday by beating Ansonia 3-0 and finishing their league record at 4-0.  2 Big Goals by Anabella Omara and 1 by Ava Angiollo secured the win while Zoey Gilbert earned the shutout in goal.  The entire team played solid team soccer with lots of cheering and encouragement from the parents watching the game.  

The East Haven Swarm competed in the U12 Girl Travel Rec B Division with a team composed of multiple ages (2009-2011) this season as East Haven returned to action after not playing since the Fall of 2019 due to the Pandemic.  

Congratulations to Coach Caitlyn Campbell and assistant coach Alex Cabrera and the entire Swarm team for the championship!
