PAL Soccer Program

San Jose PAL Soccer is a recreational soccer program for the boys and girls of San Jose from the ages 4 through 17.

San Jose PAL Soccer is comprised of 4 regional districts: Foothill, Cambrian, Willow Glen, and Rosegarden. The Foothill division is for families who live near PAL.

We are proud to present a recreational soccer program for children from our local communities to introduce them to the game of soccer and to teach the player the benefits of skills development, sportsmanship and the competitive spirit.  Teams are determined by the ages/birth dates of the players. We observe an age cut-off date of July 31st for 4- 17 year-olds. For the 2020 season, players born between the dates of June 1st, 2001 and July 31st, 2016 are eligible to play.

San Jose PAL youth soccer season 2021 sign-ups start in April and end in early August, or until teams have filled. Opening day for the 2021 fall season is August and will end in November. You can register your child online using your credit card or check with the San Jose PAL office for walk-up registration locations by individual districts.

We have partnered San Jose PAL with Santa Clara PAL and Milpitas PAL to create the Metro PAL Youth Soccer League (MPYSL) and provide a unified learning experience for over 1,100 children. Metro PAL is considered a recreational league, so there are no tryouts to cut players- all who sign up will play 50% of all games will be played on each district's home and 50% will be in the fields of the other districts.

Being that our league is comprised of parent volunteers, it is crucial for the success of our league that parents understand there is a high need for volunteers. During the registration process, you will be asked to volunteer for activities including a coach, team parent, field preparation, assistant coach, cleaned up.

Any player wishing to become a member of this organization shall rester seasonally for affiliation with one District ONLY.  A player cannot play on multiple teams with a district. To play, each candidate must:

  • Complete a Metro PAL player registration form
