How to Join ESSDA
The catchment area of ESSDA is the Edinburgh area of the SFA South East region, but we have teams from as far away as Inverkeithing, North Berwick and Peebles.
ESSDA is a development association offering small sided football to children aged 12 and below and we follow the SFA/SYFA Player Pathway.
Our age groups are calendar year
based, and for the 2024 season these are:
All children playing ESSDA football must be SFA registered on the SFA Live system, and must play for their registered age groups. A small percentage of children at any age group can be registered as one age group above their age. To play for a younger age group or to play two years older requires permission from SYFA at Hampden.
- A properly constituted Cub with a Chairman, Treasurer and
Child Protection Officer
