Tournament & Travel Soccer

EYO is expanding its soccer offerings to include tournament teams (beginning Fall 2021) and travel teams (tryouts in Spring 2022). The EYO Soccer mission is three-fold:

INCLUSIVITY: even with the addition of new teams with a higher level of competition, EYO's goal is to provide opportunities to everyone. Our tryout procedures will be fair and transparent, and we are as committed to the development of our recreational players as our tournament and travel players.

COMMUNITY: EYO is dedicated to serving the greater Elkridge community. We believe soccer should be fun for the players and help build bonds to strengthen our community. Our coaches are also part of our community, and we are dedicated to training local volunteer coaches to provide appropriate instruction for our players.

AFFORDABILITY: As a volunteer-powered organization, EYO will always strive to offer youth soccer to local families for the lowest cost possible. We believe soccer should be open and accessible to every family in our community.

For the Fall 2021 season, we plan to launch 2 new programs:

Tournament Teams: 

  • Tryouts to be held on Wednesday August 25 & Monday August 30 
  • Selected players will form a tournament team that will train 1x/week during the Fall and participate in a November tournament  
  • Practices will be held on Mondays (turf fields) and will be a combination of sessions led by the tournament coach and sessions led by paid SoccerSource360 master coaches 
  • Cost: $150 for Fall 2021 Tournament Team registration, must purchase home/away uniforms kits for team (approximately $70) 
  • Eligibility: Players with birth years from 2007 – 2014 


EYO Academy Groups: 

  • For age groups where there is not enough player interest or volunteer coaches to support a Tournament team, these players will be offered the opportunity to participate in additional technical training sessions during the Fall 2021 season 
  • Academy sessions will be held on Mondays (turf fields) and will be a combination of sessions led by volunteer Academy group coaches and sessions led by paid SoccerSource360 master coaches 
  • Cost: $80 for Fall 2021 EYO Academy registration 
  • Eligibility: Players with birth years from 2007 – 2014 


We will be offering a FREE soccer clinic led by SoccerSource360 master coaches on Monday August 23. This will provide the opportunity to see the type of enhanced training our Tournament teams and Academy groups will offer. To pre-register for our August 23 clinic or the tournament team tryouts on August 25 & 30, please complete the form here for these sessions.
