If the player is a U-8 or U-10 player then he or she will be evaluated for a developmental team. The developmental philosophy is as follow: EWGYSA developmental philosophy shall be to provide players the opportunity to develop skills at an elevated level for the purpose of self-improvement and compete against the developmental programs offered through other similar associations. The EWGYSA developmental program shall be: non-result oriented, and 50% playing rule applied to all players, and strong emphasis on player participation at various positions. Such participation will benefit the EWGYSA and increase interest in the game of soccer.
Players should bring their ball, cleats, shin guards, and water or a sports drink. They should dress in sports attire and appropriate footwear (don’t forget to have them dress for the weather –it can be very cold or very hot during different times throughout the year).
Uniforms - Uniforms will be available for purchase thru the competitive director.
Playing Equipment - *All players must wear proper shin guards to every practice and every game. Hard surfaces of shin guards must be covered with socks.
*No jewelry, metal devices, or hazardous equipment may be worn. (Casts can be allowed if they are padded & the Referee approves them before the game).
Referees will check to be sure all rules are followed before each game. *Each player should bring water or sports drink to games and practices. Avoid soft drinks or Sugar filled juices. *Each player should have a stitched ball (as opposed to a hard seamless ball) of proper size. Also, look for a stamp that says either “official size & weight” or “FIFA Approved”:
U-4, U-5, U-6 & U-8 use a size 3
U-10 and U-12 use a size 4
U14+ use a size 5.
Evaluations are held in June (see dates listed). Players must register online and pay a $60.00 registration before a player can be considered or evaluated for the developmental/ competitive program. Players in the age groups of U8 through U11, U12 through U16 must attend evaluations(try-outs) in order to be considered for a team. If they do not or cannot attend, their name will be put on a wait list. If a child wishes to challenge up to the next age level, they must try out for both the age group they wish to challenge up to as well as the age group that is appropriate for them.
During evaluations, each player will be assigned a number and will be rated on various skills and small sided scrimmages. Once the evaluation scores are calculated and the teams have been selected, the coach assigned to the team will contact you and the developmental/ competitive practices will begin. All evaluations are conducted by the Revolution Academy Trainers, parents are allowed to watch the evaluations from the permitted area.
If assigned to a competitive team at any age group, there will be an additional fees. Fees listed below, the fees can be paid in installments and all payments should be made via Got Soccer web page. This fee covers the cost of the professional New England Revolution coaches that will work with each EWG competitive team individually. Starting in the fall, the trainings will consists of 20 total practice sessions with Revolution Trainers, including ball mastery, group nights and the optional goal keepers trainings. Revolution training sessions are in addition to sessions and tournaments that your competitive coach schedules directly.
Spring Outdoor Soccer - The spring outdoor season of developmental/competitive soccer is mandatory (meaning you cannot join a team just to play tournaments or indoor sessions). Fees for the Spring Developmental/Competitive program are as follows:
Initial registration fee (to cover tryouts): $60
If a player is assigned to a Competitive or Academy team, an additional fee will apply. This fee may be paid at once, or on a payment plan, and covers: game uniform, Superliga fees, field maintenance fees, all Revolution Academy Training sessions, G-Form shin guards, SRI Cup Tournament fees for u8-u10 players.
Competitive Registration Fee: U8-U12: $462
Competitive Registration Fee: U13-U19: $485
Academy Team Registration Fee: $TBD
Academy Select Team: $TBD
The coach may also ask the team to play in tournaments, which range in price and are separate additional fees. Typically local tournaments range from $20 to $40 per player.
Practices for spring are 1-2 times a week at the EWG Soccer Complex and there is typically one game held per week for eight weeks with four games being held at the EWG fields (home) and the other four being held at other fields (away) located thru out Rhode Island.
In addition to spring outdoor games and tournaments, coaches may also decide to participate in tournaments during the late fall and winter sessions, additional fees apply.
Winter Indoor Soccer - Typically the coach will choose to enter the team into 1-2 indoor sessions, usually held at World Wide of Sports in North Kingstown. Indoor is not mandatory but is highly recommended. First session generally starts in October and second session usually starts in January. Each session typically runs approximately 8-9 weeks long. Practices are held at Wawaloam School, EWG Jr. High, and at the Exeter Job Corp and are usually scheduled 1-2 times each week. Games are typically once a week.
The costs associated with indoor vary by the age group and the number of players on a roster. The cost is calculated by what the indoor facility charges, divided by the number of players on the roster. World Wide of Sports also require each player to have an ID made for separate fee of approximate $10.00 (subject to change).
Our developmental/ competitive program fields both boys and girls teams in all age groups from under 8 to under 19. These teams play teams from other associations around the region in both league play and tournaments. Players in the U14 and below age groups must tryout. The dates will be posted both at the field and on the web at least three weeks prior to tryouts. During the tryouts, players rotate through a number of stations and are evaluated on criteria such as speed, ball control, shooting, etc. Based on these ratings, the coach selects enough players to fill the team roster. For a full description of this process along with the other rules governing the Strikers program please see our competitive rules & regulations. The competitive season is held in parallel with the spring rec season but is administered by the state league - the RI Youth Super Liga. The Super Liga sets the schedules for matches that are held throughout the state and are typically played on either Saturdays or Sundays. Rescheduled matches may also be held on weekday evenings but generally the coach will ensure that most everyone is available before committing to this. Half of the matches will be away and could be anywhere from Woonsocket to Westerly. The parent and/or player is responsible for transportation to and from these matches. Finally, some coaches also choose to enter their teams in indoor soccer leagues and/or outside tournaments. Participation in these is strictly voluntary and choosing not to participate will not affect the child's position on the competitive team. However, please be aware that each of these venues has different roster requirements and the coach may not be able to invite every player to participate. If you are interested in starting a second team to help ensure all players have the opportunity to play, please contact the appropriate coach. Any Questions: email@example.com
