Recreational Soccer

The Santa Clara Youth Soccer League provides Recreational Soccer for boys and girls from ages Under 6 through Under 16. Emphasis is on player development and soccer enjoyment. Our league provides a recreational soccer program during the Fall Season from the end of August through the first week of November.  All games are played in Santa Clara, except the older U12-U14 Teams may compete in the West Valley Play-Through League (requires some local travel).

Our League utilizes small-sided game formats in our U6, U8 and U10 age groups to maximize skill development. Our U6 through U10 recreational teams are often referred to as “House Teams” since they play against other teams within our League. U10 teams may wish to participate in the District Cup Jamboree.

We have a very dedicated and enthusiastic group of parent volunteers serving on our Board of Directors that organize the Recreational soccer for us.  You will find general information, modified playing rules and contact information on each Age Group web page.

Sincerely,
Steve Robertson
SCYSL President
