Why Choose Earthquakes EU?

The San Jose Earthquakes EU is a child-first and child focused organization. We are a soccer organization with happy, healthy kids as our passion. Every decision, every rule and every program has "what's good for kids" as its basis. Every girl and boy stepping on a soccer field for the first time can have fun. Our child-first approach also makes our league one of the finest player development programs. Everybody likes to win, but developing successful players and people is what's fundamental to us.

The choice of where to have your child play youth soccer can be very difficult. Here is a great article by Christian Lavers that talks about how you can navigate your child's path.
San Jose Earthquakes EU is a recreational and competitive soccer club, run in partnership with our Major League Soccer club, the San Jose Earthquakes. Player development in a fun environment is the primary goal. We provide an educational and enriching environment that connects the youth players to the Earthquakes professional team and organization.
  •  Earthquakes EU provides a quality soccer program that inspires self-confidence, increases physical fitness, a sense of fair play and team spirit, and, most of all, is good fun for all, win or lose.
  • Students in our afterschool program will be able to finish their recreational or competitive soccer practices as an extended component of their afterschool program, enabling the parents to avoid shuttling the kids to different locations! Coupled with the free transportation we provide from Evergreen schools to our afterschool program this saves a lot of time, money and effort for our parents. More details about our afterschool program are at afterschool.evergreenunited.org.
  • Team practices and games are held primarily in the Evergreen area, with competitive teams traveling to other cities for away games. 
  • All Earthquakes EU players will wear uniforms similar to the professional MLS Earthquakes players, with an Earthquakes Logo! 
  • Earthquakes EU can participate in US national league play, which exposes top players to college coaches. They will also have access to an extensive college recruiting network. 
  • Earthquakes EU teams will be highlighted at various Earthquakes professional games. 
  • Earthquakes EU teams will have increased access to current and past Earthquakes professional players as mentors, trainers and coaches.
