EBU Juniors (U6-U8)


Spring 2018 season is in progress… Registration for Fall 2018 will open on Monday, April 16th!

FALL 2018

WELCOME to the new EBU JUNIORS PROGRAM at East Bay United Soccer Club!!!

EBU Juniors is all about FUN. EXCELLENT. AFFORDABLE. SOCCER. for young children of all playing abilities, experience and backgrounds.

We believe that at this age it’s especially important to remember that we are coaching children—not just players! Our programs combine early childhood development best practices with age-appropriate excellent soccer instruction to create an environment where kids learn through play.

At this age group our programs are not labeled as “rec” or “competitive.” All EBU Juniors programs are designed to meet young children where they are, and to offer them a fun challenge and opportunity to grow and improve on the field. Players that participate in EBU Juniors Programs go on to play U10 Recreational or U9 Competitive Soccer after they turn 8.

Starting Fall 2018, East Bay United will offer three different programs for 4-8 year-old children:

U6 Micro Soccer (Kindergarten)

U8 Soccer League (1st & 2nd Grade)

EBU Soccer School (PK – 2nd Grade)

(EBU Soccer School replaces “Grassroots” and “Jr. Academy” weekday programs starting Fall 2018)
