Summer Development Program
The Summer Development Program serves as a way for all players in the U9-U13 age groups (2011-2015 birth years) in our community to continue developing the skills that will help them improve and be competitive in their soccer experiences and have a ton of fun in the process! The Development Program will have an overwhelming focus on developing the players’ individual skills. Players will be coached using the same philosophy and coaching style used by East Bay Eclipse Soccer Club where players can develop and succeed in a positive and fun learning environment. The Program takes place in 1.5-hour sessions twice per week over the course of the summer with the first session being focused on individual skills development and the second weekly session being our club play day where the kids get to scrimmage.
Our Summer Camp is another option for all players from the community to participate in an Eclipse program where the focus is on developing skills and having a ton of fun in the process. The summer camp is a week-long camp (Monday-Thursday) with 2.5 hours of soccer each day. Players will spend time developing their individual technical skills, while also working together in teams in fun games and competitions.
The 2023 Summer Camp will be held Monday, July 31, through Thursday, August 3, 3:30-6:00pm each day at Wilder Sports Complex, Field 4, 101 Wilder Rd, Orinda. The camp is open to players born 2005-2016. The 2023 Summer Camp costs $200.

Update: The Winter Program for 2022-23 has concluded for this year.
The Winter Program runs once/week on weekends during the months of December, January and February. Players currently playing on Eclipse teams and players new to the club from the community are welcome to attend. The Winter Program has a heavy technical focus, so players can further develop their foundational skills to help them in all aspects of their game. Coaches will also mix in small-sided team play, so players can test those skills in a game-like environment.
Update: Registration for the 2023 Spring Program is closed.
The Spring Program runs early March through mid-May with players having two practices per week during that time. Returning Eclipse players automatically participate in the Spring Program and do not need to register. It is also open to players new to Eclipse looking to develop their skills. Some new players participate in the program as an opportunity to work with our staff and see if it's a good fit prior to our next year's player selection process. The Spring Program has a heavy focus on individual technical development, so we use a blend of field training and futsal training to help players develop their skills and increase their speed of play. Registration typically opens in January.
