Registration Dates

Club Registration

Players now register with the club online via BYGA ( ). Players/families will receive an invite to create accounts in the system and to register for each new playing year.

The club has been evolving to a FLAT fee structure which helps us insure the viability of teams regardless of the number of players assigned to each team within an age group. The annualized fees cover the cost of coaching, field rentals, player credentials, league registration and entry for at least one tournament in each of the Fall and Spring seasons. These expenses are paid directly by the club on behalf of the team. The fees do not include clothing which is the responsibility of each player.

League Registration

League and other event registration is done through and an account exists for each team within our club. All staff (Coach, Manager, Registrar, Scheduler) from a team will share the login credentials for the team account. If you don’t have the credentials, please send email to and note which team you are with. Click here for a guide to GotSoccer Login & Roster Management.

Which league should my team play in?

Ask your coach which playing league(s) s/he wants the team to play in. See Leagues and Descriptions at the bottom of the page.

Leagues and Descriptions

Several factors will affect the decision of which league to play, including: coach’s schedule, your team playing level, family commitment level, and level of competition offered by playing leagues at your age group.
CalNorth Cal Soccer League (CCSL)
CCSL is administered through California Youth Soccer Association (CYSA or CY).CCSL is still occasionally nicknamed CYSA or CY. Until recently, most competitive Club teams in the area played CCSL. Our local CCSL Registration League is Redwood Junior Soccer League (RWL), in District 2, which covers the Peninsula region. Within CCSL, there are different divisions, including State Premier (the highest ranked teams); Bay Region, which includes Gold and Silver Elite; and Coast for more local play of Silver, Bronze, and Copper level teams.

California Regional League (CRL)
CRL is sanctioned by CYSA and includes the top teams from Northern California across all districts. The league also hosts showcases where teams from Northern California and Southern California come together for multiday events. Their new website can be seen at

NorCal Premier Soccer (NorCal)
NorCal sanctioned through U.S. Club Soccer, has emerged as an alternative to CCSL, and playing in NorCal has become a more popular option. As in CCSL, there are different divisions depending on level of play, including the National Premier League (previously Regional Academy League) for elite U14 and older teams.

National Premier League (NPL)
The NorCal NPL serves as the National Premier Leagues (NPL) Division of the NorCal Premier League. The NorCal NPL Division is one of 19 leagues across the United States that are part of the NPL, which has been created to provide a national developmental platform with the highest level of competition in given geographic areas, and to elevate and change the competitive youth soccer landscape based upon fundamental principles in US Club Soccer’s 10-year vision. The champions of each NPL (including the NorCal NPL) are awarded a spot in the US Club National Premier League Champions Cup. For more information on the NPL, please visit
