Recreational 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 Recreational Program is seasonal, focused on providing a fun and engaging experience for the youth within our community, spanning  from 4 years of age to 18. Our hope is to develop players skill, build friendships, and cultivate a passion for the game of soccer.

  • Normal Registration Period: April 1 - May 15.  A $50 late fee applies during the late period.
  • Late Registration Period: May 16 - May 31.

Looking for Additional Training Opportunities?

We have several post-season opportunities available for our players:

Our competitive program is growing!  Tryouts for our competitive teams will be May 4-6th, 2020.  If you're making the transition from our Rec Program, we'd love to see you before tryouts.  We plan to have a club Town Hall meeting in January and a Town Hall meeting in April focused on our Competitive Program.

Or you can reach out to our Director of Coaching (Joe Champion) with any questions on how to get engaged before tryouts.
