Our Mission

The EWSC competitive program is an elite community club that provides a positive soccer experience for players of all levels.

We give every player the opportunity to succeed and reach their full potential in a fun and competitive environment.

We encourage our players to bring their best every day and to compete, lead, and solve problems with their teammates on and off the field.

We strive to provide the best training, best development, and the best experience possible for youth soccer players in Minnesota.

The Program

EWSC is one of the largest youth soccer programs in the twin cities. Our competitive program has 600 competitive players fielding 50+ teams. We field teams at every level including:

  • MYSA: Premier, C1, C2, C3, as well as Maroon & Gold (U9 & U10)
  • TCSL: National (1st), Regional (2nd), State (3rd), City (4th) as well as Red, White & Blue (U9 & U10)

EWSC offers Academy Training to all players in the competitive program January through March. This type of development training helps to build and develop every age group and player to be the best they can be as they grow through the program.

We offer Elite Feet development training year around to all youth soccer players. Elite Feet is run by Professional Trainers at EWSC and Division 1 soccer players from Minnesota. The winter training camps start in November and run through April. The summer camps start in June and run through August. Elite Feet development camps help players become their very best in a fun, positive environment!
