Team Formation

Team Formation Meetings

“Team formation” meetings occur shortly after tryouts to introduce coaches with players/families, set expectations for the upcoming season, and identify volunteer team helpers. Formation meetings are for players who have been offered a spot on an ECFC team for the upcoming year.  Players and parents/guardians are expected to attend. Please make sure at least one parent of the player attends the team formation meeting, as important team, club and player information is handed out at this time. Please see below for volunteer information that each team requires and be prepared to ask more questions regarding positions and/or volunteer for a position.

Dates/times/locations will be communicated by the club or coaching staff after tryouts, and posted below.

Age Group
High School Boys (2006-2009) --->
U11-15 Boys & Girls (2014-2010) --->

If you and your player are unable to attend the Team Formation meeting please contact your ECFC team coach.
