Today's Games ...
As of 7:15 AM today, September 26th, all Saturday game fields at Rockburn Park are closed. All games scheduled for 9:00 AM and 10:15 AM are cancelled and will be rescheduled. For game scheduled later in the day please call the inclement weather line at 410-313-4455 to see if fields have reopened. I will contact the park staff and see if we can get an update at 10:30 AM rather than 11:00 AM - no guarantees but I'll try.

Recreational Soccer Program

EYO Soccer is a co-ed, recreational program that focuses on fun and fitness.  A program where everyone plays and everyone is valuable to the team.  Our recreational teams do not require tryouts to play.  As part of an organization with over 50 years worth of history in the area we have a rich heritage of making sports fun for kids and a great value for parents.

Our dedicated volunteers have enabled us to expand the EYO Soccer program and the size of our leagues. 

In addition to the regular season games EYO Soccer also started a new tradition in 2007: The EYO Cup game.  This game is similar to an All-Star game like many of the area baseball programs have. 

EYO Soccer offers opportunities in the spring and fall for players ages 4 to 18.  Spring registration opens in December and fall registration opens in May.

You will find general information regarding our soccer program on this page. 
For more detailed information visit the individual league pages by clicking on a league at the top of this page or contact Ginny Zimmerman, the EYO Soccer Commissioner, at [email protected]

Registration Prices

Early registration offers a $15 discount for the 1st month of registration for each season.  When Early registration discounts end, Regular registration begins for the next month. Late registration runs through the end of the registration period and includes a $20 late fee.

Only leagues that have openings for additional players will be open after Regular registrations closes. Again, players that register during the Late Registration period run the risk of being placed on the waitlist if leagues are full. So, please register early to ensure your place on a team! 

If you have a preference for, or limitations on, practice nights please include that in the comments section of your registration. We will make very effort to accommodate practice, coach, and teammate requests when possible. However, these requests cannot be guaranteed as extenuating circumstances sometime interfere.

Help Wanted . . .

The Elkridge Youth Organization is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization.  The success of every program in the organization depends on the involvement of the parents.  The EYO soccer program has the following opportunities available for you to help make your child's experience a memorable one:


Soccer Coach
We always have a need for coaches. For the younger leagues all you have to do is point them in the right direction and teach very basic skills - everyone is qualified. Coaches are required to undergo a background check and ASEP training - both of which are paid by EYO.
  Team Manager                         
It is our goal to have a team parent for each soccer team. This person will handle administrative tasks for the team allowing the coach more time to work with the players. Good communication skills are a must.

League Coordinator
This person forms the teams for the season and manages the league.
  Referee Coordinator 
This person schedules the referees for the regular season and for make-up games. Good communication skills are a must.

This person would be 13 years old or older and would trained and certified by the USSF and would officiate at the games in our U8 through U19 leagues. This is a paid, not a volunteer, position



If you would like more information about any of these opportunities or other ways that you can help then please contact the Soccer Commissioner at [email protected].
