CVSJ is committed to the health of our community. We will return to the fields only when it is safe to do so. We are developing flexible and innovative ways to let kids safely play soccer again. This will likely be very different than what we are used to.
We will not open registration (or charge fees) until we have more clarity on what we will be able to offer each of our three programs (Recreational, Select and Elite).
The purpose of the CVYSL recreational soccer program is to provide the development of the soccer playing ability of the child. Safety, fun, excitement, and player skill development are the primary focus of our program. Regardless of the ability of the child, everyone deserves an equal chance to play and to learn in a safe, positive, and supportive environment. Children with little or no soccer experience should play in the recreational program. This will allow them to develop their soccer skills in preparation for advancement to competitive level play.

The CV Select Program is for teams (U10 and older) that are looking for a higher level of competition than recreational leagues offer. Our Select players want to develop as a soccer player but are not interested in a traditional competitive program. Our CV Select teams play in NorCal / CalNorth leagues, against other clubs within the Bay Area. Our region has about a 40 miles radius so families need to understand that travel to away games can be long. Learn More
Central Valley Youth Soccer League (CVYSL) has a proud tradition of producing some of the most successful teams in Northern California. We’re excited to announce the return of our competitive program! We’ll have boys and girls teams this Fall. Learn More
