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