League Play with SF Youth Soccer is a little different than in most towns, in that: 

  • SFYS does not place players or coaches on teams. Primary responsibility for finding (or creating) a team rests with the coach/player and their family. Teams are formed independently, through schools or neighborhoods, by soccer clubs, etc. ​
  • New for 2024: Free Agency! Not ready to commit to a team, or want to participate with a team that has maxed out it's roster? Players may register as available for guesting with an existing SFYS team.

  • The SFYS Leagues registration cost per player per season is between $100-$150. Financial Aid is available. (Note: SFYS Cost does not include uniforms, non-SFYS tournament play or coaching fees.)


Beginner and Intermediate play for players. Multi-level league perfect for single-season or multi-sport players. Top finishing teams in highest Bracket may be promoted to Competitive play.

SFYS Competitive Upper HouseCOMPETITIVE PLAY

SF Competitive Upper House is a local competitive league of San Francisco teams, ages 9 to 15. Unlike other private competitive leagues, the Upper House leagues do not require you to join a club.


The Varsity League is aimed at high school age players that want to still play organized league soccer without the commitment required to join a travel team.

Keep fit and connected with SFYS Varsity before your proper high school winter season starts!

Are you a player looking for a team? 

There is a robust ecosystem of independent, volunteer-run teams as well as paid clubs and coaches - which results in a soccer environment full of options for every level of player and every budget, as well as for those who want to engage as team staff vs. just spectate.

We have an amazing soccer community here in SF, with teams of all types and levels.

  • DON'T stress! Many teams need and welcome additional and new players. It's an opportunity to find just the right fit for your player and meet folks who aren't in your immediate circle of friends and acquaintances.​ And we can help! Visit our Player Connection page for more information.
