Recreation Information

Welcome to the CESA Recreation page.  Complete details of program information for each age group can be found on the recreational program tabs.

CESA does allow teams to stay together from Fall to Spring if players registered in the fall register for the Spring season by December 20, 2017. After December 20th, all players will be placed on teams in their age group based on availability.

The only REGISTRATION REQUEST that is guaranteed is PRACTICE FIELD LOCATION. If we cannot assign your player to a team at the field location you requested you will be issued a full refund. ALL OTHER REQUESTS are not guaranteed and therefore are not eligible for refunds.

We do our very best to honor your practice day/time requests but it is not always possible. Once teams are full in each practice day/time slots, players will be placed based upon openings on teams in all practice day/time slots.

Uniforms

Official CESA recreation uniform jerseys can only be purchased at Lloyd’s Soccer located at 1018 S. Batesville Rd. Greer, SC 29650.  The phone number to Lloyd’s Soccer is (864) 848-6805.

PLEASE NOTE: All players MUST wear the official CESA uniform for ALL games. The team listed first (HOME team) on the game schedule will wear the RED official CESA uniform jerseys. The team listed second (AWAY team) on the game schedule will wear the WHITE official CESA uniform jerseys.

  • Players can have any number on their jerseys (or no number if they choose).

 

Equipment

Shin guards are required for all practices and games. Cleats are not required, but are encouraged.

Players must provide their own soccer ball.

  • U6-U12 - Size 4
  • U15-U19/HSP - Size 5

 

Practices and Games

Practices are held Monday through Friday from either 5:00-6:30 or 6:30-8:00 at our 3 locations: Brushy Creek, MeSA or Wenwood

  • Coaches get to pick their practice days and times, so we do not know when coaches will practice until after teams have been formed.
  • We want to be flexible to our coaches first, as they are volunteering their time and have busy schedules just like the rest of us. We will try to work with families who have practice conflicts, but we cannot make any guarantees.

Games for ALL recreation teams will be on Saturdays.

  • U6-U12 will be played at the MeSA Soccer Complex
  • U15-U19/HSP will be played at Wenwood Soccer Complex.

 

Coaches

The recreation teams are coached by parents and volunteers. The only requirement for our volunteers is that they enjoy working with kids and enjoy helping kids develop on and off the field. 

Soccer experience is not a coaching requirement. All coaches are required to obtain a minimum of an "F" Coaching License through US Youth Soccer.

CESA strives to place every child on a team who wants to play, but we can only form as many teams as we have coaches for. Not only do we support our volunteer coaches, the success of the club relies heavily on families volunteering!

The volunteer coach is one of the most integral parts of CESA Recreation and we value their dedication and commitment to ensuring that our kids are safe and having fun.

If you are interested in volunteering as a Head Coach please email Austin Beaton, austin.beaton@carolinaelitesc.com.
