ECJ Multi-Sport Policy

posted May 12, 2016, 8:49 AM by Jeff Kline

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.
