Recreational Registration & Fees
Please register for Fall 2023 PSC Recreational Soccer using the following links:
RECREATIONAL PLAYER REGISTRATION
RECREATIONAL COACH REGISTRATION
This section provides registration information for Recreational level teams, U6 through U19. Registration for Recreational teams for the Fall Season is open from early May to June 30th. A waitlist will be created when registering for an age group reaches its max capacity and players will be added on a first come first served basis when availability opens up.
If a player has been selected for a Highlanders team, please do not register through this page. Players who do not get selected for a Highlanders team will need to follow this section’s instructions to be assigned to a PSC Recreational team.
General Registration Instructions
Piedmont currently uses the GotSoccer web portal to register recreational players.
- Please complete a new player/family profile or login to the portal if you have registered a previous year with PSC.
- Select the appropriate Fall season soccer registration option once you’ve established an account.
- Complete ALL steps of the online registration process. Skipping steps will slow the process for our registrar to place your player on a rec team.
- You should receive an email confirmation with your player information following the online registration process. If you have any questions regarding registration please email the PSC Registrar at email@example.com.
Recreational Players and Teams
No tryouts are required for PSC recreational level teams. Players are assigned to teams by parent volunteer coaches and the respective PSC Age Group Coordinators. Player preferences will be accommodated to the extent possible; all U9 and older teams are formed in accordance with the PSC player draft process. Teams will be ‘flighted’ to play recreational teams of similar age and ability in the Jack London Youth Soccer League (JLYSL).
Sunday Only Teams
PSC strives to host at least one team in each age/gender division which plays only on Sundays during the Fall season, provided there are sufficient coaches and players to form a team. PSC has done this on behalf of the entire Jack London Youth Soccer League for the past twelve years. These teams give preference to families who have custody, language school or religious conflicts with a Saturday schedule. This option needs to be checked on the registration form.
Playing Outside of Your Age Group
The California Youth Soccer Association (CYSA) establishes age groups based on calendar year of birth. Please check our age group chart to see where your child should be playing in fall. The only PSC exception to CYSA is U6 in which PSC enrolls all Kindergartners.
U6-U8 age groups will play dual games, which means the team will divide their roster in half each game and play simultaneous games. Rosters can be divided in any way the coaches decide.
Players who wish to play up in the next age group or play down with their classmates must obtain the approval of both the Age Group Coordinator of the ‘correct’ age group and the Age Group Coordinator of the age group that the player is looking to play into. To obtain permission, the player (or parent) should email both Age Group Coordinators with the request. The request should include the player’s name, grade in Fall and a brief explanation of why the player wishes to play up. Email addresses for the Age Group Coordinators can be found on our Contact page.
