ECU is pleased to announce a great opportunity for Chippewa Valley High School girls to improve their soccer skills while having fun this summer!
ECU will be forming two high school girls’ teams for summer tournament play.
♦ Upper level team [Red Team], with the intention of competing in 2 or possibly 3 tournaments including one College Showcase tournament. Competition primarily in July.
♦ Second team [White Team], with the intention of starting practices in late May/early June and playing 3-4 tournaments total in June/July.
Fees: $125 Registration and Club Fees + Tournament Fees (depending on number/type) + Coach Fee (estimated $25-75 per player, depending on team) + $25 Uniform rental if needed.
1. Register online at www.ecusoccer.org and pay $125 by March 9th at 9 pm to be included in Tryouts and Team Formation.
2. Attend tryouts: 3/10: 8-10 pm, 3/13: 8:30-10 pm, if necessary. Attend both, if possible.
Teams announced by 3/17.
3. Attend team meeting on Tuesday, 3/25 @ 7p to discuss practice & tournament schedule.
• Teams will be formed primarily based on ability, but also taking age into account.
• You may request to not be considered for the upper level, Red Team, if you prefer.
• As we did last year, players will have the opportunity to select tournaments that they want to participate in because we anticipate having extra girls on the rosters. If you are only interested in 1-2 tournaments, it is ok. Please indicate that at tryouts.
Any questions regarding tryouts and teams, please contact Alex Beuning (email@example.com) or Sean Yengo (firstname.lastname@example.org). Registration questions to Donna Springer (email@example.com) and uniform or general questions to Lucinda Kemmet (firstname.lastname@example.org).
