SOCAL 10th Anniversary Logo

10-years later and still going strong!

Our principal mission remains unchanged –

To allow all participating clubs to have the freedom to make decisions that are in the best interest of all their players and to place the League’s priority first and foremost on true player development.

From 781 teams in 2011 to over 3000 teams for 2021/22 we continue to change youth soccer in SOCAL for the better. Our new format and our new partnership with US Club Soccer, NorCal Premier along with the creation of a Player Development Program 'PDP' as well as Coaching Education offerings will bring more opportunities for players and coaches.

When Olympic LEGENDS get together (including Shannon Mac Millan from DMCV Sharks)!

This group of trailblazing woman who set the world on fire got together to reminisce, 25-years later, about the 1996 Olympic games and the first ever gold medal for women's soccer!

Make sure to watch the USWNT during the Summer Olympics to learn more about this reunion but thank you to our very own Shannon Mac Millan from DMCV Sharks for sharing the picture.

If you ever get a chance to meet this amazing woman, mother, athlete and ultimate roll-model for young women today, take the chance! You may even see her around the SOCAL fields this spring and fall so be on the lookout 👀
