in any language it's the same!
Come join our club and help us celebrate the great game of soccer.
Our goal is the pursuit of excellence in all levels of soccer through our Recreational and Competitive programs.
Each year our Recreation program serves over 3,000 Fall & 2,600 Spring children from ages 5 to 15.
The Fall & Spring Recreation program are with volunteer coaches, and the Competitive program (Real So Cal) holds tryouts for team placement, and plays year round with professional coaches, and is headed by Alberto Bru Director of Coaching. This season we expect 55 (1,000 Players) teams competing at all Levels.
Real So Cal also offer soccer camps throughout the year.
Check the FAQ's for any questions you may have.
West Valley Recreational League is open to boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 18. Teams will be limited by the availability of trained and certified coaches. Coach training is provided and is a great way to be with your child.
For more information email WVSL at email@example.com
Dogs and soccer do not mix. Please leave your dog at home. To be fair, no cats are allowed either
If it is raining on a Friday/Saturday night we will call off games ONLY if the rain is so heavy that the fields are already too wet to play on.
BUT if the fields are ok we will wait until Saturday/Sunday morning to call the games. Luckily we live in So Cal and we can have healthy rains on a Friday/Saturday night and wake up Saturday/Sunday morning to sunny skies. That said, we are at the mercy of the schools and if they do not want us on the fields, we will not find out until we get to the school grounds on Saturday/Sunday morning at 8:30AM. At that point, we will put it on the web site as soon as physically possible.
So if you have the first game of the day you will have to go to the fields regardless. (sorry)
Pierce College - fields OPEN
A.C. Stelle - fields OPEN
Hale MS - fields OPEN
Columbus - fields OPEN
Round Meadow - fields OPEN
It is more the rain the day or night before a game that causes us to cancel games,
rather than the weather at game time. A heavy evening rain will turn a field into mud.
WVSL Rules for Playing in Bad Weather
Soccer is played in almost all weather conditions. Because of our relatively short playing season and inability to make-up most games, we try to stay on schedule whenever possible. But safety is still priority one.
The problem is this: everyone has a different opinion as to what is a threatening weather condition. WVSL has established the guidelines below to follow during adverse weather conditions.
Referees and coaches are responsible for making this decision to suspend play. However, in any situation, parents should not hesitate to remove players from any weather condition they feel is unsafe or inappropriate. No one will be penalized for any safety related actions taken.
Below are the league rules for playing under bad weather:
- Check the WVSL website for any announcement regarding field closures.
- Rain is not bad weather and is not grounds for the coach or the referee to stop the game, unless the field becomes unplayable.
- If the rain makes the field unplayable, the referee or coach will stop the game. If he/she doesn’t, you should ask him/her.
- Make sure that referees, players, and everyone else gets off the field if there is lighting or thunder.
- In case of lighting or thunder, the referee or the coach will stop the game/practice. If he/she does not, you should ask him/her to do so. The referee will wait 15 minutes after last time thunder is heard or lighting is seen before resuming the game/practice.
- NO ONE SHOULD STAND UNDER TREES IN THE EVENT OF LIGHTNING AND THUNDER. SEEK SHELTER.
- If the delay will extend to the next scheduled game, the referee or coach will call the game. For example, thunder is heard with 10 minutes left in a game. The game should be stopped, and the game is complete
WVSL will still offer an on field training session to help new coaches (click here)
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
Soccer is a sport for boys and girls of all ages, sizes, and athletic abilities.
West Valley Recreational League emphasizes fun and excitement for the whole family.
Play, coach, referee, or just cheer!
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!
