The East York Soccer Club is a community-based, registered non-profit club that has offered soccer to children in and around the East end area of Toronto, Canada since 1977 and, is a well known and recognized Club throughout the Province of Ontario. The club’s central purposes are to improve the quality of the soccer program being offered to all its players and to expand the number of children who can participate in soccer in its community and the Province.
The EYSC Rep/Elite Program is focused on player development. The program is striving to create a solid learning experience by eliminating the “must win” attitude placed on the player and team.

Through the club’s unique programs in the areas of player development, players are able to advance their awareness, skills and knowledge of the game.
The East York Soccer Club is proud to be represented at the 2019 Schwan’s USA Cup by two teams: 2006 Girls and 2005 Boys.
