MAJOR CHANGES in the age groupings are coming to East Brunswick Soccer Club
Dear EBSC Parents,
MAJOR CHANGES in the age groupings are coming to East Brunswick Soccer Club. The changes are being made by every club across the nation after a mandate from U.S. Soccer, and could cause significant changes on team rosters.
We are holding an open meeting for the membership to discuss these changes. It will be Feb. 22 at 8 p.m. at the Cultural Arts Center (721 Cranbury Rd.) and EBSC is urging all parents to attend.
In short, teams are currently constructed based on birth dates beginning Aug 1 and ending July 31. Beginning in the fall, and in accordance with U.S. Soccer's new guidelines (neither EBSC nor any other organization has a choice), players will be placed on teams based on the calendar year, which means the rosters will be constructed based on birthdays from Jan. 1-Dec. 31.
So, what does this mean for your child?
That will be discussed at the meeting. Your presence is requested.

A Champion Once Again!
East Brunswick’s Heather O’Reilly added to her incredible soccer resume last night with a National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) championship when her Kansas City Attack team defeated the Seattle Reign, 1-0, in the league title game. Heather assisted on the game-winning goal, sending a perfect cross from the left flank to Amy Rodriguez, who headed the ball past Seattle keeper Hope Solo for the game’s only goal.
Heather, who played her youth soccer for the East Brunswick Soccer Club, has won championships at every level – NJ State Cup with the EBSC Dynamite, NJ high school championship with East Brunswick High School, collegiate championship at North Carolina, Olympics, The World Cup and US women’s professional soccer.

EBSC Background Check Policy: Ensuring the safety of our children
All coaches and trainers must comply
This season EBSC will continue to ensure the safety of the children we serve. This policy requires that all Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches and Trainers serving our Superstars, Recreation and Travel programs, participate in a criminal background check. This has become an accepted policy at many area soccer clubs and at other youth sports organizations, including those here in East Brunswick.
Please note that this is a mandatory requirement and any Head Coach, Assistant Coach or Trainer who fails to complete this background check will be suspended from the Club until they are in compliance with the new policy. If you have any questions, please email the club VP of Support.
To begin the coaches criminal background check process, please click here. To view EBSC’s written policy, browse to the ’Forms and Documents’ link on the main page.

The Millers – Gregg, Carlotta, Mike and Dan – can certainly be considered a “First family” of East Brunswick soccer
We have created a new feature called “Q&A Corner” and we will be posting interviews highlighted often by people who have made a significant mark in the East Brunswick Soccer program.
The Millers – Gregg, Carlotta, Mike and Dan – can certainly be considered a “first family” of East Brunswick soccer. Gregg, a former collegiate player, coached in the East Brunswick Soccer Club, while sons Mike and Dan had great collegiate careers. And many in town know mom as well – Carlotta Miller, former principal at Bowne Munro. Former EBSC President Ron Brandsdorfer caught up with the Millers to talk about growing up in a soccer-crazy household.
Congratulations to the 2015 EBSC John Holland Memorial Scholarship winners Derek Morgen and Sydney Rosa.

EBSC and STA Officially Announce Partnership
The East Brunswick Soccer Club (EBSC), one of New Jersey's leading community-based youth soccer clubs, has bolstered both its training program and the competitive opportunities for its elite youth teams by partnering with STA/SONESOCCER. The partnership will mean that SONESOCCER will provide recreation and travel training to EBSC players and teams, while the club's elite teams will have the opportunity to become EBSC/STA teams, with advanced academy-style training and the chance to compete at the highest possible level of play. "We are very excited about the possibilities with STA and SONESOCCER," said Howard Gessner, EBSC's president. "We already have an exceptional youth soccer program, with nearly 40 years of great history, and we see this as a next important step in ensuring the continued excellence of our club. This is a partnership that will help all of our players -- from our 5-year-old Superstars through Recreation and Travel and al l the way up to our most advanced U18 teams." Sarah Brady, coach of the EBSC/STA Fuzion U11G team competing in the JAGS Premier A Division 8v8, continued: "EBSC has always been a hotbed of soccer talent -- a great feeder for the exceptional East Brunswick High School teams and many top college programs. Not only does the club already have first-rate players and teams wearing the EBSC jersey, but if you look at club academies in the area, they are stacked full of EBSC players. We can now keep those players with their home club and provide them with academy-style elite training, professional coaches and unmatched league competition."
