Already in Season

U11-U12 Fall Rec Program

Central Valley use modified versions of US Soccer rules to allow for best practices in our league.  We play 9v9 on the field in the U11/12 age group, and please remember that heading the ball is prohibited for kids 12 years old and younger.

Playthrough League:
CVSJ participates in CYSA’s playthrough league in the U12 age group.  (CYSA is the California-wide organization Central Valley is affiliated with.)  Central Valley operates under CYSA guidelines already, so game rules are no different under this league.  Cal North District 2 Recreational Soccer rules and schedules are posted.

Game Schedules:
8-9 games will be played on Saturdays and occasionally Sundays beginning September 11th.  Opening day (picture day) will be Sunday, September 12th.
