History of East Bay United
The East Bay United Soccer Club was formed in 2011 as a result of the merger between the Bay Oaks and Rockridge Soccer clubs with the goal of creating an integrated club that provides expanded opportunities for soccer players at all levels in the East Bay.
For decades, the Rockridge Soccer Club offered the best in neighborhood recreational and mid-level competitive teams in the central East Bay community. At the same time Bay Oaks had been one of the few premier soccer clubs in Northern California to achieve statewide and national recognition while offering full programs of boys and girls teams – sending players to all levels of men’s and women’s collegiate, professional, and US national teams.
East Bay United’s competitive US Development Academy, CollegeBound, State and Regional teams continue to feature the Bay Oaks name. Former Rockridge teams and recreational teams now use the East Bay United (EBU) name.
