East Side Soccer
Sep 06 - May 20
Haslett Community Education
From Sep 06, 2016 to May 20, 2017
This activity is closed to further registration.
The Eastside Soccer League (ESSL) is a volunteer organization, comprised of communities in the greater Lansing area offering quality recreation soccer opportunities for youth. The principles of good sportsmanship, team play and equal opportunity are basic to the
organization. The Eastside Soccer League is dependent upon community support in
organizing, coaching, and refereeing. All players, spectators, coaches, referees, and other volunteers must display these principles
What equipment is required?
Each player must wear shin guards for games and practices, bring a ball to practice, and an East Side reversible jersey for games. These jerseys are available from Community Education for $20 and are used from one year to the next.
How is East Side Soccer different from HYRA soccer? The emphasis of each is on recreational participation and not on competition. One difference is that East Side Soccer teams practice once or twice a week during the fall & spring season. The main difference between East Side and HYRA soccer is that Haslett East Side Soccer teams travel and play teams from other communities (East Lansing, Mason, Dansville, Okemos, Fowlerville, etc.) while HYRA plays in Haslett against other Haslett teams
Why sign up now for East Side Soccer?
The final number of Haslett East Side teams at all grade levels is contingent on the number of players who sign up for each level. East Side prepares the fall schedule before school starts in the fall. This means we will enter teams for each level dependent on the number of players who sign up this spring. If a sufficient number of players do not sign up for a particular grade level we can?t schedule a team at that level. If large numbers of players sign up at a particular grade level, we will field multiple teams for that grade. Places on team rosters are filled on a first come first serve basis. To insure that teams are offered at your child?s grade level and to insure a place for your child on a team, it is imperative that you register your child this spring. Teams will be restructured each fall to ensure equally sized and diverse skill levels. Fall rosters will remain the same for spring, and additional teams may be formed in the spring if there is sufficient interest.
