My Kid Wants to Play Eclipse: What Do I Do?

Maybe you’re new to Eclipse… or new to club soccer… or new to this whole youth sports thing… regardless of your situation, we want to help make things as easy as possible for you!

What Should I Know?:
If you’re available to attend an Information Night, that’s a great opportunity to hear about Eclipse and ask any questions you may have. Information Night dates will be posted on our website each spring. Some key pages on our website to check out would be Programs, About Us, and Our Coaching Philosophy.

How Do I Sign-Up?:
Our U9-U18 teams require players to attend tryouts and make a team. For the 2019-20 season, that means anyone born 2011 or earlier will need to attend tryouts. You can head over to our Tryouts page for more information and to register. U8 and younger players (2012 or later birth years for the 2019-20 season) participate in our Future Eclipse Program and can register at any time by contacting Director Shane Carney at

Our Spring Program, which runs mid-March through mid-May, is open to all players and does not require tryouts. Head over to our Spring Program page to get more details and to learn how to register for that.

We also offer other clinics and camps throughout the year that do not require tryouts. Check our website regularly for any updates on those offerings.

How Do I Get Updates?:
By registering for tryouts or the Spring Program, we will add you to our email list for any updates regarding those events. If you head back to our home page and scroll down the right sidebar, you will find a way to Follow Our Website, which means you will get an email any time we post any updates. We also are active on Facebook and Instagram – @eastbayeclipse.

What If I Have Questions?:
If you have any questions about anything related to Eclipse, you can contact Director Shane Carney at
