Recreational Program

The purpose of the recreational soccer program is to provide the development of the soccer playing ability of the child. 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.

Our U5/6 division practices are led by a professional coaches, providing better development for the players and helping parent-coaches learn how to run an effective practice. Each year, players are assigned to teams on which all players must play at least 50% of the time throughout the season. We encourage the use of small-sided games in the youngest age groups to maximize skills development. In addition, we sponsor recreational jamborees, which feature tournament-style of play. Learn More

Our Competitive Program offers year-around training by U.S. licensed volunteer coaches and play in NorCal / CalNorth leagues, against other clubs within the Bay Area.
