What is ESC’s Fall Soccer All About?

Escondido Soccer Club (ESC) strives to develop integrity and mutual respect through athletic competition within a safe, fun, and supportive environment.

Fall soccer registration will be open 06/01/2020-08/01/2020. Any registrations after this time will be placed on a waiting list.  Due to COVID-19 restrictions, registration can only be completed online this year. There will not be any walk-up registrations.

Practice times, days, and location are all chosen by the coach. The locations range from different schools throughout Escondido and some at Frances Ryan Park. Days are either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday, with times anywhere between 5:00pm-8:00pm. The Fall Season will start practices in August. If you haven’t heard from your coach by this time, please contact your division Commissioner (see list below).

Due to activity restrictions caused by Covid-19, we are unable to hold Player Evaluations for U9-U14 this year. We typically use evaluations to determine player development and create teams. Coaches also join in to make notes for an upcoming draft night. But this year due to limitations, ESC will create teams using the following format:

  • Children of Coaches and Assistant Coaches will be assigned to their teams unless requested otherwise 
  • For all other players we will review their playing history including years of experience and any former involvement in All-Stars or competitive

The objective is to create balanced teams that can provide for a fun and competitive season.  Once teams are formed, the Commissioner is the only person that can change the composition of any team. Though this is a tough time with so many changes due to social distancing, we are optimistic this new team selection process for U9-U14 will be helpful.  Thank you for your understanding. 

For U6-U12, games will be played throughout the day on Saturdays.  For U14-U19, games could be played on Friday, Saturday or Sunday because these teams will travel to various cities to play. 

The end of the season tournament for U8-U14 will be played throughout the weekdays and/or weekends in November, depending on division. Starting in October, coaches will start nominating All-Star players to tryout. Each player must attend tryouts in order to be eligible to participate.
