Welcome to Eastside FC!

Eastside FC is the sole premier soccer club chartered to provide the highest level of training and competition within Eastside Youth Soccer Association (EYSA), serving the communities and soccer clubs of Issaquah, Mercer Island, Lake Hills, Bellevue and Newport, and drawing players from across western Washington.

Eastside FC abides by tryout dates established by Washington Youth Soccer. Note that soccer age groupings are based on calendar year.


Eastside FC Information Nights

How is Premier soccer different from Rec? How often will my child have to travel? Will he/she ever have any time off?  Can he/she continue playing competitive tennis, as well? Are high school sports ok?  What about playing time? Are there any guarantees?

Great questions!  Players and parents, you are welcome and encouraged to join us for either of the informational meetings listed below to meet our coaches and staff and get your questions answered.

  • Eastside FC Information Night, Issaquah Middle School, Mon, Apr 17th, 6:30 - 8:30 pm
  • Boys' Development Academy Info Night: Issaquah Middle School, Tues, Apr 18, 6:30 - 8:30 pm.


About Tryouts

For the convenience of players in the Issaquah area, Select tryouts for Issaquah FC are combined with those of Eastside FC's Premier soccer again this year. This trial program ensures players interested in either program attend only a single tryout to find either a Select or Premier team. This program may expand to other EYSA Select clubs in the future.

YOU MUST REGISTER FOR TRYOUTS.  When it opens, a link to registration can be found at right. Tryouts are scheduled over two sessions at each age group, and you should attend both.  If you are unable to attend both, please let the tryout coordinators know when you check in for tryouts so they can share the information with the coach.  For questions about registration, contact Colleen deCillia, Club Registrar, at
