EGYSL Sues Soccer Start-Up

The city's largest youth sports organization, Elk Grove Youth Soccer, has filed a lawsuit against a new rival soccer organization, the Elk Grove Recreational Soccer League (EGRSL), claiming the organizers of the start-up group took confidential information.

In a new release, EGYSL president Debra Carlton claimed some of the new league's organizers were a part of the older organization and knowing they were going to start their own group, they took some lists of players and coaches.

In December when EGRSL first announced their intentions to establish their own league, EGYSL accused them of taking equipment and money. Carlton said at the time said the new league organizers didn't realize how EGYSL was set up with its regional soccer clubs and returned everything to the parent organization.

The legal action will be heard before a judge in mid-May, according to Carlton.

Meanwhile EGRSL is taking registrations for play this fall. According to their website they've also established six neighborhood organizations. They are Elk Grove Thundering Herd, Calvine, Pleasant Grove Eagles, Southgate, West Elk Grove and Cosumnes Oaks.
