Natomas Youth Soccer League

About our Recreational Program





Welcome to Natomas Youth Soccer League Recreational Program!

Natomas Youth Soccer League (NYSL) provides families in our area with quality soccer experiences for all age groups. Primarily represented by South Natomas Area residents, although accepting of players from all over the Sacramento area, NYSL Recreational Program is a non-profit organization run by volunteers supporting all needs of the Club.

We offer two recreational programs which are the Fall (primary) Season and the Spring (Secondary) Season.  
Our aim is to offer a fun, recreational soccer experience for players of varying skill and age levels.


2020 Fall Season Information:
The Fall Season has teams in the following age-groups: Under-6 (U06); Under-8 (U08); Under-10 (U10);
Under-12 (U12); Under-14 (U14); Under-16 (U16); and Under-19 (U19).   Please note that due to the number of registrations, the U16 and U19 age group may have to be combined to ensure that all players will be given an opportunity to play.  We will notify all parents in advance before this decision is made.

The players will develop fundamental soccer skills, as well as teamwork, respect, and sportsmanship. Every player who is registered to the program will be assigned to a team.  We realize that there are many new players that begin at this level and we want to provide as much information and some basic expectations for our families.

Registration Cost:
U06-U08 is TBD
U10 and above is TBD

Uniform Cost:
Complete uniform is $40.00.  This is not included in the registration cost listed above and is additional.  If a uniform was purchased last season, it is not necessary to purchase again unless a new size is needed.

Season Information:
Registration begins the first week of April and continues until the end of June and then the team building process begins.  With our new system, you receive email notifying you of the team placement.  We will make every attempt to honor the various team requests that are submitted but we cannot guarantee that all requests can be honored.  Please also keep in mind that some teams move up in age group and we mandated by USSF regulations to assign players properly.

There will be a "Meet and Greet" opportunity in July for coaches and players to meet.

Practice will begin in the beginning of August and are assigned by the coach's request.  

Depending on the age group, games will begin at the end of August or the beginning of September.  The U06 and U08 age groups are played in the South Natomas area.  The U10 and above age groups will be played in Natomas and other areas throughout the Sacramento and Elk Grove area.

Covid-19 update

Recreational (REC) Program

Without a clear timeline to reaching Stage 4 from State and local government the NYSL Board has determined it would be best to postpone the opening of REC registration date until mid-June. Nonetheless, we are continuing to work with our CSA playing partners to develop possible scenarios for the fall season.

1.                   The best-case scenarios would be registration opening June 15. Practice starting Aug 1 for all U6-U19 and playing a 10-game season starting Aug 15 and ending Oct 24.

2.                   The most likely scenario would be registration opening on June 15. Practice starting Aug 1 for all U6-U19 and playing an 8-game season starting Aug 15 and ending Oct 10.

3.                   The worst-case scenarios would be no fall season.

All scenarios are dependent on when what and how State and Local Government officials relax current Stay at Home and Social Distancing restrictions.

REC Coaches – We will be holding a Virtual Coaches Meeting the week of June 8 to review the new Coaches Registration process for those returning coaches and anyone who wishes to coach in the fall.  If not a returning coach and are considering coaching please contact Stephanie Doke at [email protected] or you may contact Jes Vargas at [email protected] to include you in the meeting.
