Information For Parents

Parents, thank you for considering EDHSC and the sport of soccer for your child.  As a volunteer run club, we understand the challenges parents face when trying to juggle work, family life, school and extracurriculars for their kids and we appreciate your making time for this team sport.

  • Season is approximately 7 weeks long, beginning March 12th and ending April 29th, 2023

  • Registration fees include an end of season gift to celebrate the season.

  • Please review the club's Team Formation Policy.

  • Parent volunteer coaches are the backbone of our club.  The main requirements to coach are a great attitude and a willingness to learn and apply positive coaching techniques.  No previous coaching experience is necessary.  Please consider volunteering this season.


  • Scheduled to begin March 13th, 2023.

  • Held at school or CSD fields throughout EDH.

  • Fields are allocated based on team needs, conditions, and coach requests.

  • Schedule is based on coach availability and is announced in February.

  • Teams practice twice per week for an hour until October, when most teams drop down to once per week.

  • Practices are typically held between 4.30PM-6.30PM and are chosen by coaches. 

  • Proper athletic clothes, shin guards, cleats, and water needed.

  • Individual soccer balls are preferred, ball size is explained here.

  • U5-U8 SIZE 3  U10-U12 SIZE 4  U14+ SIZE 5


  • March 18th through end of April 2023.

  • Occur every Saturday (except Labor Day Weekend).

  • Games are typically played between 8AM-2PM.

  • Last 60 - 90 minutes (varies by age).

  • Fall Seasons follow this  Modified Laws of Game structure. Spring Season will consist of a different format.  U6/U7  will stay the same and play 4v4 games, U8 - U12 will play 5v5 games.  These small sided games for the older age groups encourages more touches on the ball and a quicker paced game.

  • Snacks are not allowed on Promontory Park fields and are up to the team to coordinate.


  • New uniforms may be purchased through  

  • Prior season and hand-me-down EDHSC uniforms may be worn.

  • Previous years had reversible uniforms.  Begining in 2022 there will be a blue and a yellow uniform (not reversible).  You can either wear a previous year uniform, a yellow or blue plain shirt, or purchase the new uniform kits.  Both colors are required for the season.

  • Uniforms are not included with registration fees.

  • Jersey numbers are not required for U5-U10 since we don't keep scores or standings for these younger ages.  These age groups can either have no number or any number they want.

  • Cleats and shin guards are required for practices and games (baseball cleats with rubber spikes are acceptable).

  • Teams may coordinate matching socks and/or a team banner prior to start of the season.  This is decided on after teams are formed and by each Coach individually.

  • Many vendors make banners.  We recommend locally owned businesses like A4Promotions and Branded Graphics & Apparel in EDH, as well as online vendor Zaavy.


  • Kids are to be respectful of their coach and other players during practices and games.

  • Kids do not have to be athletes in order to play for the first time, our program aims to build fitness and develop skill.

  • Parents are to ensure kids have plenty of water and stay hydrated during practice and games.

  • Snacks may be coordinated by each team and are not to be consumed on Promontory Park fields.

  • Parents are to review the Heat & Air Quality Policy and although some practices may or may not be cancelled because of weather, it is ultimately up to parents to decide if current conditions are conducive to their player.

Parent Involvement

  • EDHSC does not require volunteer hours or fees.

  • However, over 1,400 players can play soccer in our club because of dedicated volunteer coaches, team parents, age group coordinators, event volunteers and board members.

  • Volunteering can be as limited or broad as you prefer.

  • Volunteering is a great way to get to know others and be more informed about the community as a whole.
