Registration for Recreation starts April 1, 2021!!!

The East Sac Youth Soccer Club aims to make our neighborhood a better place for children and youth who master and enjoy playing soccer while learning physical and social development life skills. If you live in or around the East Sacramento area and would be interested in having your child play soccer, please contact us!

With over 900 players strong, East Sac Youth Soccer Club is one of the larger soccer clubs in the region, but we are only as strong as the volunteers who step up to make it happen. If you are interested in helping us please join us at our monthly board meetings.



A Message from East Sac Competitive's Director of Coaching

As noted below, the East Sac Recreational program has made the difficult decision to cancel the recreational season.  This decision does not extend to East Sac Competitive soccer.  The reasons for the difference in approach are many, including but not limited to the lengthier competitive season and the approach take by competitive soccer programs across the County and beyond to not cancel the season at this time.  With that said, whether and to what extent the program is able to return to a more normal soccer playing environment depends entirely on future developments.  As always, we will follow the directives of the governmental entities that control our conduct.  The safety of our players, coaches, and personnel remains, and will always remain, our first priority.

The Fall 2020 Soccer Season has been Cancelled

June 24th

In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Capital Soccer Alliance (CSA) has decided to cancel inter-club recreational games for the upcoming Fall 2020 soccer season. This decision has been made in order to best protect our communities from potential exposure to the COVID-19 virus and to reduce the likelihood of unnecessary transmission through close contact during recreational sports activities. During a meeting of all CSA member Clubs held on June 24, 2020, this unanimous decision was made for the following reasons:

  • In the weeks prior to the meeting, reported cases of and hospitalizations due to COVID-19 were increasing locally;
  • Local public health officials and US Soccer have not yet released guidelines on how to safely conduct competitive/recreational soccer games (current guidelines that have been released only cover conditioning activities for athletic training);
  • Many of the fields that we use are owned by local municipalities, and the fields still remained closed for sanctioned sports activities; and
  • We are concerned about placing an undue burden on volunteer coaches to implement appropriate social distancing guidelines that would have to be emplaced for public safety

The CSA partner Clubs did not make this decision lightly. We are all committed to providing a safe environment for the youth of our communities to experience the sport of soccer. Unfortunately, the unprecedented circumstances of the global COVID-19 pandemic have created a scenario where we do not believe that we can effectively create a safe environment for all of our registered players. Please stay safe and we hope that we can all return to play recreational soccer in 2021.

Parent Corner:

Respect the Game, the Players, the Coaches, and the Referees!

Protect the Ref!   
Every year referees quit because they are treated poorly by a parent or a coach. 
Youth referees as well as adults at the recreational level are learning just like your kids are learning to play the sport.

Saying anything negative to a referee is not permitted. 
Be positive and enjoy watching the game!

All Parents:  Here are a few good videos we all could watch and use.  Click Here
