Ecusta Football Club (EFC)

Ecusta Football Club (EFC)
is the Academy and Classic program for TYSA. EFC was created in 2023 as the club continues to evolve and grow our programs. EFC represents the more advanced soccer programs for TYSA.

EFC Academy Program

The Academy program is a level of training and play beyond recreational soccer designed to help players improve their technical soccer skills which they will need to play at a higher level, as well as their love for the game. Our Academy teams practice locally, but play most games in nearby regional desinations including Asheville, NC, Greenville, SC and similar locations. 

EFC develops Academy teams at the U10 and U12 age groups for both boys and girls. Our Academy program represents an intermediate step between "recreational" soccer and "classic" (travel) soccer. In order to join an Academy team, each player must attend an evaluation session hosted by our Academy coaching staff. Our core evaluation is most often held in May, while other evaluations may be held throughout the year depending on program need and interest.

If your family or child is interested in being evaluated for the EFC Academy program please email: [email protected]

EFC Classic Program

TYSA is targeting Fall 2024 for the launch of EFC Classic teams. "Classic" soccer is the name given to "travel" soccer in North Carolina and is played amongst other teams in North Carolina in a league administered by the North Carolina Youth Soccer Association. EFC envisions our future Academy teams progressing to play Classic soccer at the U13 age groups and older ages.

All Classic teams will require a player evaluation.

If your family or child is interested in being evaluated for the EFC Classic program please email: [email protected]
