The Edmonton Drillers Youth Soccer Club has been operating a successful club soccer program out of north Edmonton, as a member of the Edmonton Interdistrict Youth Soccer Association (EIYSA), since 2003. EIYSA's focus is on the further development of youth soccer and competition at Tier 1 and Tier 2 levels, in age groups from U4 through U17. EIYSA teams have perennially advanced teams to provincial and national championships in the competitive youth soccer circuit. In addition, the Drillers is one of few Clubs in Edmonton that has competitive teams at the adult level playing in the Edmonton District Soccer Association. With this Drillers' players have an opportunity to continue to play within the Club once they are done their youth career.

The focus of the Drillers rests primarily on developing the physical and mental skills of youth players to successfully perform in the competitive soccer ranks. The Drillers have a player development program in place designed to build and hone player skills as well as an active coach management program designed to ensure we get the best possible coaches.

If you have questions about the Drillers, the club's program, etc., please contact one of the Club representatives noted on our website.

Yours in Soccer,
