EMSC Intramural Program
 
The Intramural Program is an introduction to soccer for all players U4-U12. This program serves the purpose of introducing a great game to kids, and allows those players who like sports for recreation, to play each week.
 
  • Each player will practice once a week.
  • Each team will play one match per weekend for 8 weeks in the Fall and 8 weeks in the Spring.
  • This is a great program for those that want to keep their children active, and in team sports.
  • It is a good initial step in soccer and it is the first step in several programs EMSC offers to allow players to play the game they love.
  • EMSC offers professional training once every three weeks to each age group in the Fall and the Spring.

EMSC Youth Academy Program
 
The Youth Academy is a continuation and expansion on the Intramural Program. This program is designed for every level of player U6-U9. This program houses every level of player; it is often confused as a program strictly for the aspiring elite player, and that is simply not the case.
