"Keith knows kids. I love being at the same time/place and seeing the same kids/parents week after week. I love that the parents cheer on ALL of the kids, even when they play against each other. I love that these boys play like gentlemen. They help each other up, but play HARD. I love the positive impact Keith is making on these kids. The 5/6 team this season has been AMAZING. Seriously, their skill level is freaking awesome. Ryan has really come out of his shell. He's got a MEAN kick and gets up even more quickly when he gets wiped out. Will is an amazing leader. His communication on the field rocks. Nikki is also fantastic at speaking up on the field. I hear him often "I'm OPEN!" Biased as I am, Evan is the MVP in my eyes. Keith has brought him up well and Evan is a completely different player than when he started. He gets sportsmanship, rules, regulations and the game as a whole on an entirely new level. Keith's groups are amazing, and so is his love of the game and especially the kids is unmatched. Watching Evan learn techniques with Matt and "regulations" with Keith was just so impressive for me. It's a pleasure to be a part of such an awesome group of parents!"
NEW AGE REQUIREMENTS FOR 2016/2017 season. Birth year registration should be based on the year in which the season ends. For example, if a season begins in the fall of 2017 and ends in the summer of 2018 (ex: 2017-18 season), the players would be registered based on their age in the year 2018. Competitions that take place in a single year (ex: fall of 2018 only) should use that year to determine birth year. To simplify determining the age group, just subtract the birth year from the year the season ends.
Year Season Ends – Birth Year = Age Group:

Welcome to the home of Keith Van Eron Pro Soccer Club!
Let's Have a Great Season!
In the mid '90s, Keith Van Eron had the top youth Club Teams in Maryland. Now as the popularity of Club soccer explodes, many parents have shown interest in Keith starting a Club--sharing his special vision for youth soccer. After much thought, Keith decided to create a Club in 2013 for talented, dedicated soccer players that want to increase their skills while having FUN. At the same time, Keith could spread his love and knowledge of soccer to the next generation of players. Keith Van Eron Pro Soccer Club is starting its third year and has added more teams. Keith will personally ensure that every team will share his philosophy and vision.
Keith wants to keep his club affordable and therefore has arguably the lowest rates for club soccer in town. This covers the expenses of operating a club, which include providing practice fields, equipment, insurance, marketing, and more. Annual Club dues are $500 and are payable 50% at acceptance of a roster spot and 50% in September.
Also, each NEW player will need to purchase a uniform kit ($195) which includes Jerseys (home and away), Shorts, Socks, Backpack and Warmup.
In addition, each individual team will decide what leagues and tournaments to play in. This will dictate the team budget that will be split equally amongst all players on the team and be payable monthly.
