Our Mission Statement
The Eagles strive to provide an elite environment that allows our players to achieve his/her potential. We provide quality training that leads to winning championships and opportunities for our players to play at the next level. One of our greatest priorities is the placement of players at the top college programs in the country and on the United States National Teams.
At the Eagles Soccer Club you will experience a professionally run environment. It is our objective to foster a feeling of accountability for the player, the coach and the club. We believe in honesty, trust and loyalty. We believe in the development of the whole person, emphasizing character, discipline and commitment. We promote excellence in the classroom as well as on the soccer field. We work hard to keep costs to a minimum with increasing efforts to provide significant assistance with financial aid and merit scholarships. We hold ourselves and our members to a higher standard by providing a professional, enjoyable, organized and successful club.
The Club is run by a Board of Directors consisting of a President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. These positions are elected positions, with nominations accepted through February and the election taking place at the Annual General Meeting in March. The Club is an independent league of registration and has teams playing in the Coast Soccer League. CSL is affiliated with CYSA-South, which is an affiliate of the USSF.
The team is trained by a professional, certified trainer approved by the Club.
Because this is a very competitive sport with a tremendous commitment of time and money required, finding players is always a priority. If you know of a player who wants to learn more about soccer and play at a higher level, inform the manager, and invite that player to a practice.
Practices, Games and Tournaments
Practices are set by the trainer, but a normal schedule is twice per week for 2 hours each session. This may vary depending on your trainer. The League Season begins in early September and continues through October and November and into December for some. The length of the season depends on how many teams are in your bracket. After the regular season is League Cup, which is a tournament that is usually just one weekend long. Depending on your age group, League Cup may immediately follow seasonal play or be delayed by several weeks. For younger teams State Cup begins in February and is held over several succeeding weekends. At a specific point, it becomes single loss elimination. The younger State Cup is finished by the end of February. For older teams (U-14 and up), play stops during the high school season. State Cup for them begins in March.
