League Play Regulations |
Per Alabama Youth Soccer Association (AYSA) Rules and Regulations, a player may only register and play for one club during their commitment period. The term of this commitment is one seasonal year (Fall and Spring) for Divisions I and II, and season to season (Fall or Spring) for Divisions III and IV. Thus, if you sign your child in another league your child will be ineligible to play in EYSA.
| EYSA GOING GREEN|
Spring 2015 Taylor Bowley brought forth an initiative based on the thousands of plastic and aluminum cans that are used each season to add recycling to the EYSA soccer fields. The board approved this measure and with special thanks to Taylor Bowley, Episcopal Church of the Resurrection, and The City of Gadsden, EYSA now has 5 Recycling containers at our complex (4 main complex, 1 at track). Please do your part by putting all cans/bottles in the blue recycling containers. All other trash to be placed in the black trash cans.

|In Memory of Billy Martin |
(Father of Bill Martin, our DOC)
Billy Martin, who was one of the great coaches in EYSA, Gadsden, and the state of Alabama history passed away. He dedicated the past 25 years of his life to coaching, mentoring, and promoting the game of soccer to our youth of Etowah County. He coached kids of all age groups, boys, girls, high school, competitive, and recreational levels. He loved the game of soccer but mostly importantly he loved the kids.
However, even with Billy’s passing he will continue to give to the children of Etowah County. The Martin family has set up a Soccer Scholarship fund in Billy’s name. Please send your donation to:
Attn: Billy Martin Scholarship Fund
244 S 3rd Street
Gadsden, AL 35901
Our prayers and condolences are with The Martin family
