FIELD LOCATIONS:  Ohio Elite Training Center and other local sites in West Chester; keeping field sites relatively condensed allows for the scheduling of back-to-back games for coaches/trainers that have multiple teams, which there are many of; it also keeps ref assigning streamlined.  Your club has the potential to host if you have 6 or more teams from your club enter the league.

Any team currently registered and rostered through US Club can participate in the EPL—U6, U7, U8, U9, U10 or U11.

All the qualities that have made the league popular and well accepted remain in place.  Most importantly, we will always remain a non-results-oriented developmental league—no scores and no standings.  If you are playing in another league and would like some extra competition against varied opponents, the EPL can customize a four or six game schedule for you and adapt the fee accordingly.

Historically, Saturday afternoon games have worked well for field availability and for coaches that lead other teams in other leagues that play on Sundays.  This also prevents conflicts with Saturday a.m. baseball and other activities.  The EPL will also play on Friday Evenings and Sunday afternoons.
