Eagles Soccer


ECCHO Eagles Soccer Program

The ECCHO Eagles Soccer Program is an outreach ministry to the families of ECCHO.  The purpose of this program is to provide a developmental, fun, competitive, and safe environment for boys and girls ages 10 - 18 years old.  Our goal is to provide homeschooled student-athletes with the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage, and respect for authority through the game of soccer.  We strive to teach the student-athletes how to work within a team setting by respecting their teammates, portraying a team-first attitude, and then dedicating themselves through commitment and sacrifice to become more Christ-like in the manner in which they approach the game while turning soccer lessons into life lessons that go beyond the playing field.  ECCHO Eagles athletes are seen as leaders within the organization and are held to a higher standard as such.


Soccer Evaluations are held in late spring and again during the summer.  Students ages 10 (by September 1st) to 18 are eligible to try out.  Tryout dates and times will be determined by the athletic director and soccer coaches.  Dates and times will be posted on the ECCHO website calendar and social media platforms.  Student-athlete candidates are expected to come prepared in appropriate soccer attire (head to toe) and bring all necessary soccer equipment, and water to every evaluation.  

Candidates will be evaluated during tryouts by coaches.  Student-athlete candidates may be asked to return on additional evaluation days before a final decision is made.  Results will be emailed to parents of student-athletes within one week following the evaluations. 


Eagles Soccer is an academic year-long program.  The team member's term begins in August and ends at the end of May of the following year.  Team members are expected to attend practices in the fall, participate in soccer class during the “academic year” and participate in the full soccer season - class, practice, games, and tournaments.  Team members commit to participating in various activities, fundraisers, parades, etc. as part of their place on the team.  (Special circumstances are considered on a case-by-case basis - please talk to the coaches and athletic director.)


Practice sessions are held on Wednesday afternoons, starting in August and continuing until March.


The Eagles soccer student-athletes will be participating in TOCA this fall.  This comprehensive indoor soccer training will help develop our student-athletes and prepare them for a competition.  The team will participate weekly from Tuesday, September 3rd - October 8th.


Our goal is to be a competitive team that works hard on and off the field and shines His light for the world to see.  The ECCHO Eagles soccer program is still very new and tournament participation and games will be determined after the squad is finalized.


Soccer Uniform Kit - cost TBD - shorts, socks, 2 jerseys, 1 practice jersey, bag, hoodie
