Parent and Player Guide

Welcome and thank you for being part of Enid Soccer Club. To help improve your Enid soccer experience, we have created this guide containing helpful information. This guide is continually updated as policies and procedures change. Be sure to review this information each season to stay up to date.


Registration

If you plan to participate and have not already done so, be sure to register for the current spring or fall season. This can be done online or in person at a registration event. If this is your first time registering, you will need to provide proof of age. If you would like to request a particular team or coach, please provide the information during registration or email the ESC Registration Coordinator. We do our best to honor all requests. However, there is no guarantee of specific team placement.


Practice and Games

When and where practices are held is up to your designated coach. Most teams practice weekdays, once or twice per week, after school and work hours. Most ESC games are scheduled on Saturdays. Some games are scheduled on weekdays, usually on Tuesdays or Thursdays. For teams that are available, the club also has games on Sunday afternoons.
