Eastside News

  • ECJ Multi-Sport Policy

    Eastside Cleveland Juniors believes it is important that players are given the opportunity to participate in  multiple sports or activities.  Over the past 15 years we have accepted hundreds of athletes that have played basketball, softball, track, lacrosse, soccer and were involved in many other activities or sports.  Over the past few years the perception that Eastside does not accept multi-sport athletes has been created by competitors.  As a result, we have implemented a policy to clarify the club position. 

    Eastside Cleveland Juniors will accept multi-sport athletes on all teams aged 10-14.  Multi-sport athletes will also be accepted on all American and Regional teams aged 15-18.  Coaches of National teams aged 15-18 will have the option to accept or decline multi-sport athletes.  Each of these will be made on an individual basis.

  • Eastside Practice Cancellation Policy

    Eastside Cleveland Juniors will only cancel practice if Lake County is under a Level 2 Snow Emergency (weather is so bad that it is illegal to be driving). Parents of players have the final say in regard to the safety of players attending practice.  If the parent feels the roads are unsafe to drive, the player should not attend practice.  Players should notify the coach and the absence will be excused.

    If we are cancelling practice, all players will be emailed and texted by their coach. It will also be posted on the Eastside website and communicated through TWITTER.

    With players from as far west as North Royalton and as far east as Ashtabula, it is virtually impossible for us to decide on the practice for an entire team or group. Also, players who have the opportunity to attend a practice even if their teammates cannot, will be given that opportunity to improve.
