Welcome to EBSC Futures Soccer

EBSC's soccer program for our youngest players where skill development meets fun!

EBSC Futures Program

The Futures program is designed for players U4 – U7 and focuses on following standards set forth by U.S. Soccer Player Development Initiatives put into place in 2017.  At this age, the program focuses on developing skills and abilities in our young players, building and growing their comfort with the ball.  Success requires a long-term approach and commitment to player’s growth.  At this stage, individual development, introduction to a team environment and a fun soccer experience is the priority. 

Superstars

The Superstars division is for East Brunswick’s youngest players, U4 & U5, and is an introduction to the game of soccer.  Along with our ATSC partners, the program is designed to focus on a large amount of touches on the ball and learning basic individual soccer skills.  Training occurs once per week, typically on Saturday mornings.  The U5 age group may participate in East Brunswick festival weekends where players get an opportunity to play several small-sided games in a day. 

Development

The EBSC Development division is for our U6 & U7 aged players.  Player development and on-the-ball skills will continue to be the main focus for the Development division players.  U7 players in these age groups will see the addition of a weekly game schedule to their program along with traditional weekly training session(s) with their coaches and ATSC partners.  The U7 games are played as follows:

  • Players: 4v4 (no goalkeepers) - two simultaneous side-by-side games
  • Time:  4 quarters of 10 minutes each
  • Fields (11)
  • Ball:  size 3
  • Substitutions:  at any stoppage of play
  • Referees: none
  • Coaches: one coach per team permitted on field with players
  • Offside Rule:  not enforced

Advanced Development practices will also be available for certain players which can also include tournaments, festivals and scrimmages in a more competitive environment in and around central New Jersey.  These opportunities are designed with the advanced player in mind and will better prepare these players for travel level soccer starting at U8.
