East Lansing Soccer Club

 

 

 2017-2018 Registrations are still open but primarily for our 1st Grade and Kindergarten programs.  If you register for our Recreational or Selection Level teams (2nd-8th / U10-U15), we will contact you and do our best to place all players.


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

1. Kindergarten soccer program - This is a fun clinic style program and comprised of kindergarteners (no pre-school or 1st graders please). There is one fall session and a separate spring session.  Each session is traditionally 5 weeks long.  Registration is required sperately for fall and spring sessions.

2. 1st Grade soccer program - Players are 1st graders only who are placed on 1st grade teams that play other ELSC teams 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 6 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 2016, US Soccer adopted a policy where, all players on Select level teams or higher 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.
