East Hudson Women's Soccer League


The EHWSL has been around since the 1990’s as an organized pickup league. Teams from Dutchess, Orange, and Putnam County, as well as Connecticut, would travel each week to play against each other. In the fall of 2006, there were at most 10 women from Dutchess and Putnam County that still came out to play soccer each week. At the end of the fall season, a small group of women put a plan in motion that they hoped would resurrect the women’s soccer league. By the next spring, a formal board of directors was elected. The league took on a formal name, held the first-ever registration, and fielded four full teams. We now have 15-20 teams, multiple divisions play indoor, outdoor, and tournaments. We have a foundation of committed and professional board of directors. Every division has a representative that participates on the board of directors.
