FC Exeter - EYSA's Spring High School Travel Program

      The mission of FC Exeter (in partnership with EYSA) is to extend quality Spring playing opportunities to our club's members after completion of their U-9 thru U-15 youth soccer years with our Fall EYSA teams.  FC Exeter offers players at the high school level an affordable option to continue Spring travel play within the club's established administrative framework, including utilization and access to our experienced coaching resources.  FC Exeter fills a void in the EYSA program by promoting further development of the club's players through the older age brackets, and over the last decade has emerged as the pre-eminent HS age town travel program on the Seacoast.  Our teams are encouraged to participate in appropriate Spring statewide league competitions, including tournaments events such as President's Cup and State Cup.

FC Exeter History

Founded in 2001 for the purpose of facilitating teams for off-season indoor play, FC Exeter developed into a small independent club increasingly focused on offering its players quality outdoor soccer opportunities at the U-15 and older levels.  Beginning in May '04 with an ambitious slate of "friendlys" with clubs across three states, FC Exeter continued its growth in the years that followed, and in Spring '07 initially aligned with EYSA to field its first-ever HS Girls team at the U-17 level.  FC Exeter's original U-18 Girls team was the st EYSA HS Girls team to earn league honors, taking the Spring '08 NHSYSL title, and was the first EYSA HS-age team to compete in the NHSA Open Cup.  In Spring '09 the FC Exeter U-19 Girls advanced to the Open Cup semis. 
FC Exeter merged into EYSA in January '10 to provide EYSA with a separate identity for its Spring HS-level travel teams, and during that season, Coach Mike Moore's U-19 Girls team became EYSA's first-ever participant in the NHSA State Cup, while in 2011 our current U-18 Girls team became EYSA's first-ever participant in a USYS Region One event (President's Cup Regionals, held in Albany NY) and returned to the President's Cup Regionals the following year in Manchester NH.  FC Exeter fielded 3 HS-age teams for the Spring '14 NHSL season, and is projecting to field an ambitious five team entry for the upcoming Spring '15 NHSL season.
