Fall 2022 Season Update

Fall 2022 Season Update (as of 7 November)
Soccer BallThis coming weekend is the final week of the Fall season! And it’s Championship weekend for the Upper Divisions at Freedom Park. Come on out for the excitement!!

After the last game at each field at EES, we’re asking the teams to help take down the nets (attached by elastic bands) and bring them to the equipment shack. And if anyone can stick around after the last games, with a 7/16″ socket wrench or drill, to take apart a handful of goals, it would be much appreciated!

Coaches should also drop off their equipment bag, with a piece of paper with their division and name on it, at the equipment shack when they are done with the season.

And signs are now posted each Saturday reminding families that we should not be parking in the connected community, and that Overflow Parking is at Liberty High School. With limited parking at EES, we must not cause side roads to be clogged, or park in grass areas where we shouldn’t like beyond the sidewalk, or we risk more parking restrictions or worse, losing use of the location. Always consider carpooling to EES.
