How does my child join the Charlotte Eagles Soccer Club?
Open tryouts are in May and there are limited spots per age group. Players need to attend both evenings of the tryouts. When committing to the Charlotte Eagles, it is both for the fall and spring seasons.
When will we know if our child makes a team?
You will know within 48 hours of the last evaluation date whether your child has secured a place on a team with the Charlotte Eagles. This communication will take place through phone call.
How is the weekly schedule structured?
Your child will have two practices each week and one optional practice. These practices will be on Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday. Games will be played at least two weekends of each month. Tournaments will be held over a Saturday and Sunday one to two weekends for our younger teams and three to four weekends for our older teams.
Who will the Charlotte Eagles club teams play against?
Charlotte Eagles teams will be a part of the US Club Soccer structure and compete against other youth teams from other clubs in the Greater Charlotte area.
How far will we have to travel?
We believe in keeping travel costs to a minimum. Most games we play will be within the Greater Charlotte area, but teams may travel up to two hours away for a tournament during a season. For our oldest teams, we may have one tournament a year that requires hotel arrangements.
When will we know the schedule of games?
Our goal is to have the full schedule of games for you by the beginning of September.
When does the Charlotte Eagles season start and finish?
The fall season begins with parent meetings and practice the week of August 14th followed by a local tournament around the the end of August. Fall games will be on Saturdays and will begin in September. The fall season will end with a tournament in mid November. There is a winter break, and training and games resume at the beginning of February. The last game/tournament is the second week in May followed by evaluations around the fourth week in May.
