Complete the Spring 2021 Return to Play Consent Form
(For Elite, Select, and Rec players)
Due to the nature and risk of transmission while participating in Outdoor High-Contact and Moderate-Contact sports, the State requires us to provide information regarding risk to all parents/guardians of minors participating in such sports, and have each parent sign an informed consent indicating their understanding and acknowledgement of the risks indicated herein.
Happy to announce that many of our Competitive Teams will be hosting tryouts for the 2021 Fall Season. The NorCal Tryout Window (May 10 - June 27) was created with the intention of standardizing the period when clubs form their teams for the upcoming season - to increase roster stability, allow coaches to focus on player development, and ensure the integrity of competitions.
More details on competitive tryouts will be posted on our website soon. Complete this Interest Form and we will be sure to reach out to your directly with information specific to your player. Share the link with your friends and let them know why you love CVSJ!
The Competitive Program is for players that want to take their skills to the next level and compete at higher levels. Placement on competitive teams is not guaranteed! There may not be a coach or the roster may be full. Teams compete in competitive playing leagues (CalNorth/CYSA/CCSL or NorCal).
