U9 (2012) PROGRAM INFORMATION
All players who register prior to May 1st are guaranteed a position in the club for the 2020-21 season. This year there will not be tryouts and your child will be placed in the appropriate team within the first ten days upon the start of training.
We have multiple teams at the U9 age group so we will place your child at the level he or she will be most successful. The teams will play 7v7, and most team rosters will have 9-10 players. This allows for plenty of playing time for each player.
Your child will be coached by a member of our exceptional staff, who on average only coach 2-3 teams so they have time and energy for every one of their players. Our goal is to teach every child to become a more skillful player, the importance of team play, good sportsmanship and respect, all while having fun in a positive learning environment.
Teams train two days a week, with two extra skills session per month at Preston Park, our world-class facility located 10 minutes from Issaquah. Each team will also train 1-2 times a month in the Eastside Futsal center, an indoor futsal facility adjacent to Preston Park.
The summer months will consist of 3 Regional Club League Jamborees, and scrimmage games, playing against teams from the best clubs in Washington. Fall season is from September to end of November, then Spring season from February through April.

About Eastside FC:
Eastside FC is a leading premier soccer club in Washington and in the nation. We are a destination for players and parents who want to play at a higher level and learn important life lessons along the way. Our teams have won national age group titles, regional titles, state championships, and multiple tournaments.
Eastside’s home is Preston Park, a world class training facility 10 minutes from Issaquah, just off the I-90 freeway. It includes 5 lighted fields, a 150-foot rebounder wall, soccer-tennis courts, and an indoor futsal center.
From U9 to U18 ages, Eastside FC plays in the Regional Club League, which is the highest competitive level of play in Washington. The Regional Club League has multiple divisions, so our teams play against opponents most appropriate for their team’s level. This ensures players are challenged and enjoy their soccer playing experience.
Our coaches are highly qualified professionals, including some who have coached at the collegiate, professional and national team levels. They are constantly bettering themselves through ongoing coaching education, and on average coach 2-3 teams.
Each coach has a passion for developing exceptional players. Through Eastside’s partnership with the Seattle Sounders, coaches teach a structured age appropriate player development curriculum which advances individual technique and accelerates team playing capabilities.
Just as important as the soccer training curriculum, our coaches focus on developing young men and women of character. That’s why many Eastside alumni who are now parents have their children playing at our club. The lessons learned at our club benefit our players beyond their youth and well into adulthood.
