MYSL: Recreation Teams

How REC teams are formed
There are several tools that can be used to sort players in any given age group. By using a sorting guideline, the goal is to have the majority of the players in a situation where they can learn and have fun with the game. Among those tools are:
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Player Preferences
Geographic location (primary sorting factor) Note: The geographical sort was changed to be based on school that player attends.

 Recreational Soccer Rules


REC Players are given one reversable (blue/white) uniform jersey, one short (blue) and one pair of socks (blue).This is the same uniform for season and tournaments games or any other time the team is playing as these are our official MYSL club colors and uniform.
To order additional uniforms for players that registered late or new requests for uniformsthey can be ordered via email or phone. Contact Equipment & Uniform Coordinator, See the Board & AGC’s tab on the home page for the current contact.
Age Group Coordinators (AGC) assist with forming teams, notifying coaches and assigning them to teams.  Teams without coaches will get a call from the AGC to recruit a coach for the team. AGCs' also communicate with their age appropriate coaches throughout the season, providing information by distributing team packets.

 Recreation Teams 
The Milpitas Youth Soccer League offers two programs for its youth soccer players.  The "REC" program (Division 4) is the recreational arm of the Club. The first priority is to provide a fun soccer experience for the majority of youth soccer players in the Club.  The focus of this program is on teaching soccer skills and game tactics, physical fitness and teamwork.
For those players that wish to play on a more competitive level, MYSL offers the "Comp" program (CYSA CCSL California Soccer League).  For more details, visit the FC Milpitas Competitive Teams page. MYSL also supports US Club competitive soccer.   Visit our US Club page for details.
In the REC program, boys and girls play on separate teams starting from U8 age division and are placed on teams based on their age group. Boy teams play other all-boy teams, and girls play other all-girl teams. U6 teams are coed mixing girls and boys.
MYSL offers two seasons for recreational soccer; Fall and Spring for each year.  In addition, MYSL hosts a district-wide Spring PlayThru season for U10 - U16 players, offering REC teams within District II as an alternative to D2 Spring Comp Soccer.
