East Side Soccer

We are an all-volunteer, outdoor, independent recreational league, serving primarily the City of Syracuse (NY) East and its adjacent suburbs. We are committed to providing a non-competitive environment to youth in grades K through 8, to teach the skills and concepts of soccer.

We are supported by player fees, donations, and a lot of volunteer hours, and offer scholarships to children who cannot afford our fees.

Registrations after August 15 and for the spring session only are accepted on a space-available basis.

Players are placed on teams in appropriate divisions, according to the grade level of the player.

The Kindergarten and 7/8 divisions are co-ed. Other levels have separate boys and girls divisions but may be combined based on the number of players registered.

Our goal is to create teams that are as even as possible and factors such as age, school, and ability are considered in the placement process.

We welcome you to join us as a player, volunteer coach, or other volunteers.

Registration (for those not already registered from Fall) opens March 15.
