East Lansing Soccer Club

 

 

 2016-2017 Fall Registration is still open for Kindergarten and some ESSL/Rec teams.

All East Lansing CASL teams are full; any registrations submitted now will be held until Spring for potential openings.


All registrations take place on-line: no more paper forms. Existing TeamSnap accounts should be able to carry over a player without re-entering all your info, if you'd like.  Goto the REGISTRATION page for more details and online registration forms.  ELSC offers four levels of youth soccer: 

1. Kindergarten soccer program - comprised of just kindergarteners and fun (no pre-school or 1st graders please).  There is one fall session and a separate spring session.  Each session is traditionally 5 weeks long.

2. 1st Grade soccer program - Players are 1st graders only who are placed on 1st grade teams that play each other in a small sided game format (usually 4v4 with no goal keeper).  Season is traditionally 8 weeks in the fall starting after school starts, and 7 weeks in the spring after Spring Break with an estimated 5 weekend games on Saturday mornings.  Practices are usually twice per week.

3. Recreational soccer program - Players are 1st-8th grade and placed on school grade teams that play against other community teams in the East Side Soccer League (ESSL). Players are not encouraged but could play up a grade but may not play down an grade. Season is traditionally 8 games over 8 weeks in the fall starting after school starts, and 8 games over 6-7 weeks in the spring after Spring Break. Games are Saturday mornings.  Practices are usually twice per week. 

4. Select soccer program - Players are U9-U19 that play against other community teams in the Capital Area Soccer League (CASL); occasionally a highly skilled team will compete in the Western Suburban Soccer League (WSSL).  Starting this season, CASL has adopted the US Soccer policy where, all players are placed on teams by calendar birth year (i.e. 1/1 – 12/31).  Players may play up two age levels (with written permission), but may not play down and age level.  Season is traditionally 8 games over 8 weeks in the fall starting after school starts, and 8 games over 6-7 weeks in the spring after Spring Break. Games are usually Saturday or Sunday afternoons.  Practices are usually twice per week.
