Winter League at Grasshopper

This is an extra, optional program.  Games will be on Saturdays from mid-November to Mid-March and will occur on 12 weekends (game dates may vary slightly at different ages).  This league is not required, but we are recommending and encouraging participation.  The fee is $150 for the season.

Teams will vary from your normal team, as it is small sided games and we want the players to play more than they might during the regular season.  So a team of 11 kids may get split into a 5 kid team and a 6 kid team, or maybe even further split with multiple teams at one age.  We may even have multiple ages on a team.  This will all depend on registrations each year.

Games will be at Grasshopper in Hillside.

ECSA Advanced Skills Development Program


This program is open to current ECSA players and invite-only players.  

This program has been designed to focus on the individual player, enhancing their foot skills, ball control, composure on the ball, and ability to execute at game pace.  This hour-long session will create high repetition of touches and build self-confidence on the ball while playing with other like-minded players.  Players will be expected to work hard and push themselves for the duration of the session.

8 Week Sessions starting session 1 from 11/18 through 1/27 (weeks off included) are $120.00 each.  Session 2 is from 2/3 through 4/3.

Both Sessions are offered together at a $40 discount for $200.00
