Elmhurst City Soccer Association (ECSA) Tryout Registration

Click here to be directed to our Blue Sombrero Registration Page. Please register for the ECSA 2019-2020 Tryout. ECSA can be played side by side with AYSO, no need to register for AYSO until after a travel decision has been made, AYSO registration is open until June 1, 2019.

Elmhurst AYSO Region 399 hosts more than 1500 players every Saturday in their primary soccer program, but many of those players would like an experience in a more competitive setting.  Our travel teams play under the Club name of Elmhurst City Soccer Association (ECSA) and offer great options for more competitive play.  A player must register with Region 399's ECSA program to be eligible to play with ECSA.  They can also play on a regular AYSO team but we do not require sign up until a travel soccer decision is made.

ECSA is our signature travel club program for those players who want even more soccer in a very competitive environment.  ECSA will field teams from U8-U12.  ECSA girls' teams play in  IWSL and boys' teams play in  YSSL.  These are among the more competitive leagues in Illinois.  Practices are twice a week with one ECSA game on the weekends and one local AYSO game.

As with all AYSO programs, these teams adhere to the AYSO philosophies.  We have found we can be very successful in these leagues without sacrificing our values. Teams are coached and managed in adherence to the AYSO philosophies based on everyone plays, positive coaching, player development, and good sportsmanship.

Tryouts for ECSA are held in May.   If you are interested, we would encourage you to participate in tryouts.  Roster sizes and number of teams are limited, so not all players trying out will be offered a position.
