Competitive Players

CVSJ offers a competitive program for teams U10 and older. Complete this Interest Form if your player was born before 2015 and your player is ready for competitive soccer.  Upon receipt of your information, our competitive player recruitment coordinator will reach out directly to you with information specific to your player.

Our competitive program is a great choice for players who are committed to fine-tuning their technical skills in a competitive environment, with the benefit of NO ADDITIONAL TRAINING EXPENSES.

Competitive teams are led by U.S. licensed coaches (volunteers) and play in the NorCal / CalNorth leagues, against other clubs within the Bay Area.

COACHES: want to know more about moving your team into the competitive program? Please email Pam at president@cvysl.org and we can set up a time to talk.
