All players are required to tryout in their own age group, no exceptions. Those who would like to be considered for the age group above must attend the first night of tryouts for both age groups. Playing up is rare, and only those players who need to play up for their development will be allowed to do so.
Players are encouraged to attend as many tryout sessions as possible in order to receive the most accurate evaluation.
ESC has added one Select team for boys and girls at the 10U age group (2011 birth year). This will be a modified program and slightly different than 11U-19U Select programming. 10U players who are not interested in Select soccer or those who are not chosen for one of the Select teams will register for the 10U Hive Academy.
