8/10/2020 update - Soccer Clinics are coming!! The town has not yet cleared anyone to schedule events on their fields ( KSP or school fields) but we are working towards (by age-bracket) Community Soccer Clinics for weekends in October (with Phase 3). There will be NO registration needed and they will be FREE to the community. Fingers crossed that Knightdale re-opens its fields in September with Phase 3! Details to be announced September 12th, along with updates on our Return-To-Play Safety Protocols.
NCYSA (our governing state association) cancelled all formal soccer play for the Spring season and delayed the Fall Recreation Season until at least mid-September. The Town of Knightdale (which controls all KSP and local school fields) will NOT allow any formal practice or play until Phase 3 is officially implemented. The combination of these things does not make it possible for EWSA to have a traditional 8-week game season.
So in short, being we are 100% volunteer run and non-profit, we have decided to put our heart-felt hours and efforts towards the planning of Fall Clinics (October) and a phenomenal come-back Spring 2021. We look forward to seeing all our soccer families back safe & healthy very soon!
Player uniforms and Coach jerseys for the current season ARE INCLUDED in the cost of your registration for players and volunteer Coaches. They are typically given out at the Meet & Greet event at the beginning of the season. Missed the M&G? We'll have them at the home field tent for the first few weekends too!
