Santa Clara Sporting is a high-level competitive youth soccer club in Silicon Valley. We are one of the oldest and most successful youth soccer organizations in the United States. Our club was founded in 1971 and now has over 700 youth players on 37 teams from U8 to U18.
We would like to express the importance of family and school. In doing so, we will communicate to your son that family comes first, school second and soccer last. We will request report cards so we may recognize our scholar athletes.
Attendance at trainings, consistency of training, attitude, effort and effectiveness are essential. Remember, we are a high-level competitive team; we want our players to feel successful on the field.
There is no “minimum playing time” at this level. It is the responsibility of the coaches to determine our strengths at any given time in a game; you can expect them to make substitutions accordingly.
We want players to show an overall desire to learn the fundamentals of soccer and play in a high-level competitive team environment. We expect players and their families at all times to show sportsmanship and to respect each other, managers, coaches, trainers, other teams, players, parents, leagues, officials and referees. Please let the players play, coach’s coach, the ref’s ref and the parents cheer!
