Is there still time to register?

After the last registration session, you can still submit registration applications. However:
A. Your child will be placed on a team only if there is room. It may not be possible to honor your requests to play for a particular coach or on a particular team or with a particular friend.
B. If there is no room on NVYSL teams, we may be able to place your child on a team in our Milpitas Club. And we may hold your registration on a Wait List in case players drop. The Age Group Coordinator for your child?s age group will contact you if we need to exercise one of these options. In the event we cannot place your child on a team, your registration fee will be turned.

My child is on a competitive team. How do I register?

Players on competitive teams register through their team. See your coach or team manager for details.

How do I get registration forms?

There are three ways to get forms:
A. You can download and print a form from the home page of this website, and after filling it out completely, you can mail it in or bring it to one of our registration sessions. Player Registration Form
B. You can pick up a form at one of our registration sessions and fill it out there.
C. If you child is playing on a competitive team, registration is done through the team. Your Team Manager or Coach will distribute and collect your registration form, or the downloaded form may be used.

Who do I give the form to? Where can I send it?

Completed forms can be mailed in or hand delivered to one of our registration sessions. Competitive players must register through their Team Manager or Coach. Mail form, proof of age, and payment (make checks out to NVYSL) to:

Beside the registration form, what is required to register?

If registering for the first time, you will need to show proof of birth date. (See below for a list of acceptable documents.)
A check to cover the registration fee and, if ordered, uniform cost. Fees vary based on level of play (recreational or competitive) and age of the child. Make checks out to NVYSL. Click here for a table of registration fees.

What documents can I use for proof of birth date?

? United States Birth Certificate
? United States Passport
? Certified Notification of Birth
? United States Board of Health Record, a Certificate of Naturalization issued by the Immigration and Naturalization Service
? United States Alien Registration Card
? California State Driver's License

Photocopies of any of the above are acceptable. Note that any player can be called upon to prove legality of age with an original copy of one of the above to the Board should a question arise.
Hospital certificates are NOT adequate proof of birth date.

Is there an Instruction Sheet?

For detailed instructions on filling out the registration form click here.

When will I be contacted about my child's team assignment?

Teams are formed during Feb for spring and July for fall, and coaches are given their rosters in early August for fall, and late Feb for spring. We encourage coaches to contact the players on their teams as soon as they get their rosters which means that you should hear from the coach sometime between August 1 and August 15 for fall or end of Feb for spring. If you have not heard from your child’s coach by August 15, contact the age group coordinator for your child‘s age group.

When do the practices begin?

Practices can begin around August 1st for fall and March for spring. Returning players are covered by CYSA's supplemental insurance from their previous year's registration, but new players are not covered until August 1st for fall or March 1 for spring.
Your coach will determine the day(s) and location of the team's practice. The League cannot accommodate requests to change teams based on conflicts. We suggest that you work with other parents on the team to arrange car pools.

Can I get a refund?

NVYSL Refund Policy All refund requests will incur a $25 administrative fee, and no refund requests will be accepted once the teams are formed or after March 10, whichever comes first. Parents are reminded that coaches make arrangements for practice dates/times/locations, and that information generally is not available until after the refund request deadline, therefore you must remain flexible in arranging your child's after-school schedule. If NVYSL does not have space available to place a player on a team, that player will receive a full refund. Refund requests must be submitted on-line to nvyslrec@gmail.com

How is soccer organized? How big are the teams? How often are practices and games held?

We offer two levels of soccer play: recreational and competitive. Most new players start on recreational teams, and recreational is all that is offered for 4-7 year olds.
Recreational teams are organized by age group. Four and five year olds play co-ed soccer on U6 teams. Six and seven year olds are organized into Boys U8 teams and Girls U8 teams. And so on? U10, U12, U14, U16, U19.
Recreational teams typically practice twice a week (e.g., Monday and Wednesday), most often in the late afternoon or early evening based on the availability of the coach. Unfortunately, we cannot assign your child to a team based on days of the week, as we do not know coaches? schedules at the time teams are formed. We ask that you make an effort to coordinate with other parents on the team to which you are assigned before asking us to change your child?s team, as reassigning children to different teams is disruptive and not always possible.
Recreational teams play two pre-season games in August and 8-10 season games in September, October and November and spring games start first week of April and end first of June. All recreational games in U6-U12 are held on Saturdays. Some recreational teams (U8-U14) enter our tournament in late November or early December; these teams pay a tournament fee that is not included in your registration.
Younger age groups play on smaller fields, with smaller balls and goals, for shorter time periods, and fewer players on the field. This gives individual players more opportunities to play the ball. It also facilitates the player?s development of tactical concepts.

Recreational Soccer General Information

Division 4 or recreational, also sometimes referred to as Class 4 or in-house, consists of the majority of our players. Each year, players are assigned to teams in which each player must play at least 50% of the time throughout the season. We place a large emphasis on player development and soccer enjoyment. Every player can play Division 4, irrespective of the skill level, whether they are new to the game or even seasoned players. Recreational soccer is also offered at our Club affiliate, MYSC. Normally, NVYSL and MYSC combine schedules to form a very balanced REC season. In addition, Division 4 teams may also play in local recreational jamborees and fun days which consist of tournament style of play.
