Competitive Soccer Program

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

El Dorado Hills Soccer Club is a community-based organization in which its members, including players, parents, families, coaches, teams and the local community, collectively provide an enriching environment that enables growth, development, teamwork, success and positive values while creating life-long experiences for our soccer community.

The El Dorado Hills Soccer Club’s Comp Program provides our young soccer players and Community with a blend of high-level Coaching/Training and a sense of ownership among the families. Most teams are led by a parent coach who has a minimum of a US Soccer National E license, and matched with one of The clubs professional trainers. This provides an unparalleled experience for our players, and allows for a collaborative effort between the coaches, trainers, and team families.

Tryouts for the 2021/22 season have completed.  Reach out to one of our directors if you have questions about specific teams!
