Santa Clara Youth Soccer League Recreational Soccer Program

Soccer Programs Offered at Santa Clara Youth Soccer League

The Santa Clara Youth Soccer League (SCYSL) offers recreational and competitive soccer programs for boys and girls from ages 5-19 years.

We offer four soccer programs including: a Fall and Spring Recreational soccer program, a Top Soccer Program for children with needs, and two competitive soccer programs with the Santa Clara Lions FC and Santa Clara Sporting Club competitive clubs.

Our goal is to provide a fun and challenging environment for children to play recreational soccer, and the structure and support for competitive soccer teams.  Santa Clara soccer teams have won National Championship titles, Regional Championship titles and State Championship titles. 

The Santa Clara Youth Soccer League is a member of US Club Soccer and US Youth Soccer Associations.


The Registration "Home" is not currently available.

2020 Fall Recreational Soccer Program is cancelled

Dear SCYSL Families,

After much deliberation and a heavy heart, the SCYSL Board of Directors has decided to cancel the Fall 2020 recreational season.  We tried to work with coaches, the City of Santa Clara, and the School District to come up with protocols for practicing safely, but in the end, the health and safety of the families of our league had to come first.  

We will begin the refund process shortly, including an option for anyone who wants to donate their registration to ensure we can come stronger together as a community and a league.  Refund information will be sent out shortly.

We know that everyone wants to get back on the pitch, and we will do everything we can to make this possible when it is safe to do so. Spring 2021 is our goal! .  Thank you to all our volunteer parents and coaches who make SCYSL possible for all the youth.  We could not do it without you and can't wait to see everyone back on the fields once it is safe to do so. 


SCYSL President, Steve Robertson
