PAL Soccer Program

San Jose PAL Soccer is a recreational soccer program for the boys and girls of San Jose from the ages of 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 skill development, sportsmanship, and 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 2023 seasons, players born between dates June 1st, 2006, and July 31st, 2019 are eligible to play. 

 SAN JOSE PAL youth Soccer season 2023 sign-ups start in April and end in early August, or until teams have filled. The opening day for the 2023 fall season is August 26 and will end on November 11 - 12.  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 with San Jose PAL Santa Clara PAL and Milpitas PAL to create the Metro PAL Youth Soccer League (MPYSL) and provide a unified learning experience for over 1,110 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 fields 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 coaching, registration, field preparation, team parent, refereeing, photo day, data entry, flyer distribution, and advertising.
