The CVSC Recreational Program is for children ages 3-18 as of July 31 of the current year.
CVSC offers different programs for different age groups.
Our youngest players participate in either the Bumblebee or Grasshopper Programs, which help teach the children and their parents soccer in a very family friendly environment. At these levels, it’s all about the basics of playing with ball.
Our older players participate in our general recreational program, which is divided by gender and age groups from U7 to U19. In the younger age groups, skill development and fun is the still the focus. As the players mature, game results become more important for each team but fun should still be a focus of any game.
CVSC Recreational teams are usually coached by a volunteer parent. Team practices start sometime in mid-July to early August depending upon the coach and team.
CVSC U7 to U14 recreational players will play all their Fall league games against other CVSC teams at a Castro Valley location.
CVSC U16 and U19 recreational players will play their Fall league games against other CVSC teams and non-CVSC teams. Half of their games will be at a Castro Valley location and the other half with be at the opponents fields somewhere in Alameda or Contra Costa counties.
CVSC recreational soccer is Fall League that runs from the first Saturday following Labor and usually finishes the second weekend in November. Team will play 9-10 games, mostly on Saturdays but due to limited field availability or rain outs, some games are scheduled for Sundays.
