All players need their own uniform, available from the ESAFC shop at Madills Farm;
Each in-house team requires volunteers for coach and manager, with other parents rostered to set up and take down the goals. We encourage teams to organise their own training sessions throughout the week to prepare for game day.
All parents/spectators (excluding coach) are expected to stay outside of the pitch lines during games to avoid damage to the grounds.
8th Grade Development teams compete at the level above them in our ESAFC in-house leagues.
The 8th Grade Development Academy will include aspects of strength and conditioning as well as tactical training, as well as Friday Skill Builder sessions to encourage maximum touches on the ball. By incorporating these aspects, we aim to produce players who can confidently move through the Junior and Youth Development Programmes in years to come.
