"Tryouts" are just the official term for our teaming period, where all players are invited to attend so that coaches can best determine the appropriate team for each player. Players are not cut at tryouts nor are they cut based on skill. Players are evaluated to determine the best fit for them to grow and develop.
Our tournaments offer a unique playing environment for Competitive teams. Games are played on the emaculate Burlington RecPlex fields, and brand new soccer specific FunCity Turf Indoor Field. Burlington and the surrounding area offers plenty of restaurants, hotels, parks, and other leisurely activities and amenities during the tournaments. Teams are appropriately matched in their divisions to provide the best competitive experience. Be sure to register your teams early as our tournaments do have a limit to the number of teams we are able to host. You do not want to miss out on some of the best tournaments in the Midwest!
Registration for Winter Turf League Closes Jan 4!
SESA hosts various youth and adult leagues throughout the year. The leagues offer playing options for all players in the area regardless of season or player ability. In our mission to grow the passion for soccer in our community, we acknowledge that providing affordable programs throughout the year is a great way to have more players exposed to and involved with soccer. Our programs are partnered with the YMCA and are played at the Burlington RecPlex, and FunCity Turf indoor facility. Previously many of these programs were only available in larger cities that required extra travel, or were very expensive. Our goal is to bring high quality programs to Southeast Iowa at a fraction of the cost of comparable programs.
