Q: WE DON'T LIVE IN EXETER OR WEST GREENWICH, CAN MY CHILD STILL PLAY FOR EWG SOCCER
A:Yes! Anyone from any town can play for EWGYSA!
Q:HOW DO I DETERMINE THE CORRECT AGE GROUP FOR MY CHILD?
A: As of August 1, 2016, due to changes being rolled out by US Soccer, age group determination is based on the player's birth year. Refer to the age matrix on this page to determine your child's age level.
Q:MY CHILD WILL TURN 3 JUST AFTER THE CUT OFF DATE, CAN THEY PLAY?
A:All cases like this are discussed by the Executive Board before a decision is made. Your child’s safety is our number one priority.
Q:CAN MY SON OR DAUGHTER PLAY IN AN AGE LEVEL HIGHER OR LOWER?
A:Players are strongly encouraged to participate at their proper age level. In limited circumstances upon request, after consultation by the Executive Board, players may be granted permission to play in a higher age group, but never a lower.
Q:WHEN DOES THE SEASON START AND END?
A:Our Rec program runs for 8 weeks in the Spring & in the Fall. Dates are posted on the Recreational page.
Q:WHEN AND WHERE ARE RECREATIONAL SOCCER GAMES?
A:All Recreational games are played on Saturdays between 8 am and 2 pm at our complex on Rte. 102 in West Greenwich. Click for directions
Q: CAN MY SON OR DAUGHTER REQUEST TO PLAY ON THE SAME TEAM AS THEIR FRIENDS, OR CAN I REQUEST TEAMMATES TO FACILITATE CAR POOLING? CAN I REQUEST A COACH THAT MY CHILD HAD PREVIOUSLY?
A:When you are registering your child, please submit any requests in the comments section. But please understand that fulfilling requests is secondary to establishing balanced teams. Although requests are taken into consideration, the program has no obligation to fulfill any particular request and makes no promise in that regard. Of course, a parent who coaches will have their own child on the team, and siblings who qualify to play in the same age group will be placed together (unless specifically requested otherwise). Please note that at ages U10 and up, the program’s obligation to assemble balanced teams is particularly paramount, and, accordingly, grouping teams in accord with family requests secondary.
Q: HOW ARE TEAMS FORMED?
A:After the registration period ends, the age group lists are compiled and the Executive Board will place players on teams according to player rating number, parent requests, siblings, parent coach etc. Again, the program’s obligation to assemble balanced teams is particularly paramount, and, accordingly, grouping teams in accord with family requests secondary.
Q:WHEN WILL WE BE CONTACTED ABOUT THE TEAM MY CHILD WILL PLAY ON?
A:The teams will be formed just after late registration closes in August. We then need to recruit coaches. Once we have coaches for every team, the coaches will receive their team roster. You should expect a call shortly after our Coaches meeting (Date TBD). If you have not heard from your child's coach by the third week of August or if you have specific questions, you may email the registrar (email@example.com) to inquire.
