RETURNING PLAYERS HAVE THE RIGHT TO PLAY ON THE SAME TEAM THEY DID THE PREVIOUS FALL SEASON, OR GO TO A NEW TEAM BY BEING PLACED IN THE DRAFT POOL.

We will be putting the teams together in July.
Practice will start in August.
The games start in September.

Coaches will contact their players in July, and will set up a practice schedule. Practices usually begin in August and are up to twice a week. All games are on Saturdays (and some Sunday for U11 & up), from the first Saturday/Sunday following Labor Day, to the Saturday/Sunday prior to the winter holiday.

The $170
covers uniforms, trophies, photographs, and yearbooks, permits, and equipment for fields. Coach, referee and player clinics are available during the season.
The program emphasizes the development of children's physical self confidence, sportsmanship, teamwork, and proper techniques for playing soccer. Young players play in small sided games (4 versus 4) on appropriate sized fields, moving up gradually until they reach 12-14  years and play on full sized teams (11 v 11) on regulation size fields. This is designed to give young players more opportunity to become involved in the action. It is important to understand that the number of children placed on teams is totally dependent on the number of parents that volunter to coach and referee. As such, there are no guarantees your child will be placed on a team. To ensure your child gets placed on a team - VOLUNTEER TO COACH!

Soccer is a sport for boys and girls of all ages, sizes, and athletic abilities. The West Valley Recreational League emphasizes fun and excitement for the whole family during its 3 month season. Play, coach, referee, or just cheer! For more information call the WVSL Hotline at (818) 999-WVSL (9875).

Your Fields Your Trash

Our fields need your help. The help of the coaches, the players and most especially the parents.
Please help teach the kids the importance of leaving the sidelines as clean as the fields they play on.

WVSL hopes that you will take your trash with you and recycle it at home.
AT A MINIMUM, put it in the trash cans, please!

Volunteers

We are looking for volunteers for the following: Board Members, Coaches, Team Manager and Assistant Coaches. Sign up !!!

West Valley Soccer League is a volunteer organization. We need parent volunteers to coach. If you are interested in coaching, please let us know. This year we are offering free training clinics for our coaches. So if you have thought about coaching, but are afraid you don’t have enough experience, this would be a perfect time to take a team. If you are interested in helping even more, and can invest a lot more time and want to have more responsibility, we have a way! Our league is run by a small, hard-working group of volunteers that serve as the Board of Directors. Every year we need new members. If you are interested, talk to one of the Current Board members
