There will be no in-person tryouts: we will be forming teams based on our substantial data set about the current ESC players (assessments during 2020-2021) and new players (questionnaire within registration and assessment during interviews with Directors). Visit our Team Formation Page for more information about our process and our seasonal plans for teams.

Help Us Kick It Back So Other Kids Can Get In The Game
The Kick It Back program started as an effort by Tony Sanneh and MLS to collect soccer shoes and redistribute them to individuals in need. Since its inception in 2009, the program has expanded as an initiative of The Sanneh Foundation. The program now receives jerseys, shoes, balls and other new and gently used sports equipment, allowing Kick It Back beneficiaries to safely participate in sports. Equipment is distributed within local communities, nationally and internationally. With your help, they've collected and distributed over 25,000 pieces of equipment over the past year!

Thanks to ESC player El Novak, who is serving as a Youth Ambassador for TSF on this program, and her dad Paul Novak, who volunteers for TSF on their Board of Directors for getting this program set for this spring for all of us in Edina!

Referees Needed!

In order to assure that there is a full crew assigned to every match for our soccer club, we need more referees. Adults: this is a great way to spend time with your kids while making money!

The Minnesota State Referee Committee has made some changes to the new referee process:

  • All new referee requirements can be completed ONLINE at 
  • There is no in-person clinic!
  • You can complete the process at your own pace, all online. 
  • New Referee certification is good all the way through December 31, 2021 (as is any certification done earlier in 2020).

You can earn anywhere between $25-$70 a game.

Refereeing is a great way to stay active and involved in the game. 
If you have any questions, please contact either Bill Garner or Tyler Dalsin, ESC's representatives at
MAT Assigning, and/or visit ESC's Referee webpage.

ESC Implements Zero Tolerance Policy on Referee Abuse

This policy has been developed to address the growing (and unfortunate) trend of referee abuse in youth sports, in general, and youth soccer, in particular.  Our policy, as set forth in the document below, is simple: Any physical or verbal abuse of referees is as unacceptable as physical or verbal abuse of players.  It is never acceptable for spectators to criticize referees, verbally or otherwise, at an ESC event.

See the link below to view the new policy in it's entirety.
