This section provides registration information for Recreational level teams, U6 through U19. Registration for Recreational teams for the Fall Season begins in mid-April and in mid-May for U8+ teams and ends the last week of June for U6 teams. U6 through U19 Spring Rec Soccer is held March – May each year.
If a player has been selected for a Highlanders team please do not register through this website. Selected players will be sent a separate link via e-mail providing details on how to register for his/her team. Spring Season is administered separately starting in February.
Please review the age group chart to locate the proper year for registering players. Also, 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
PSC is offering a Spring 2021 IN HOUSE Training program with our 24-7 Pro Coaches leading the sessions.
There will be 8 sessions (55 mins per session) one Saturday or Sunday practice session will be allocated for each age group on Beach, Hampton or Coaches Fields.
For all our returning PSC Rec Fall 2020 soccer players, please make sure you indicate you have a returning player for your $75 discounted fee to apply.
If you would like to help out as a volunteer parent assistant coach, please fill out the form while you are registering your player.
Spaces are limited. Per the California Department of Public Health guidelines, children should only be participating in one extra curricular activity at a time. For the full guidance please go to the CDPH website.
*These Spring fees are to cover the coaching costs of 24-7 who will head the sessions.
Registrations CLOSE on 3/1 for all age groups.
A waitlist will be created should any age group fill up, and accepted when space is available.
Recreational Players and Teams
No tryouts are required for PSC recreational level teams. Players are assigned to teams by coaches and the respective 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 teams of similar age and ability.
PSC strictly follows guidance detailed in the 2021 Site-Specific Protection Plans when scheduling and facilitating group soccer sessions.
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 eleven 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.
U7/U8/U9/U10 now includes 5 training sessions, per team, with a Professional Coach from 24-7 UK soccer. These sessions are an extra weekday learning opportunity for the players and parent coaches to attend.
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.
U6, U7 & U8 registration fees include the international ‘World Cup’ uniforms that have been so popular over past few years. U6, U7 & U8 players will be asked for sizing information during the online registration process.
Uniforms for U9 and older players are purchased through www.soccer.com. Purple jerseys (home jersey), shorts and socks are mandatory. However, you and/or your team may elect to purchase other official PSC items like away jerseys, warm-ups, T-shirts, hoodies and more. Your coach/uniform coordinator will be providing you with all the details (including a uniform number) once the teams are formed in June.
DO NOT order a uniform until you hear from your coach!
**SPRING SEASON does not require any additional uniform considerations.
