Coronado Youth Soccer League

CYSL Overview

Welcome to Coronado Youth Soccer League.  The mission for the Coronado Youth Soccer League Recreational Program is to provide the youth of Coronado and surrounding communities with an affordable soccer program that encourages technical development, good sportsmanship, and an atmosphere for having a good time while learning.  Our focus is on having fun and improving individual soccer skills. For our volunteers, CYSL offers the opportunity to lead a team in a family oriented environment with the sole focus on the development of our young soccer players ages 4-14 years. 

Recreational Program Overview

The Recreation Program is the foundation of CYSL. The program is designed to give each player the chance to play for the love of the game without the emphasis of high level competition and time commitment. The purpose of the Recreation Program is provide participants an opportunity to have fun, learn the sport and develop life skills including a love of the game. The Recreation program runs in Spring (March-May) and Fall (September- November). Teams are coached by a volunteer parent head coach who is required to attend a Cal South sanctioned Coaching Clinic along with a background/livescan screening. 

Our willingness and dedication to continually improve our program is what makes us different. CYSL Recreational Program is managed by a 100% volunteer staff. Our staff actively communicates with parents, volunteer coaches, and other area soccer programs to find new and more efficient processes to make CYSL a better program for all.

CYSL believes that good volunteer coaching is the key to a successful and fun experience for our players. We support our volunteer coaches with a free coaching session from a certified CALSOUTH instructor in addition to providing all equipment (coaching kit) required to conduct practice sessions. We also provide weekly training clinics, practice session support from the CYSL competitive coaching staff, and an opportunity for many players to participate in an All-Star recreational tournament outside Coronado at season end.

The Recreation Program is for Boys and Girls ages 4 to 14. The Micro age group is always co-ed. The remaining age groups under 10 may be co-ed depending on the number of participants. However every effort is made to keep the teams from being co-ed. In past years, only our U10 age group in the Spring has been co-ed.

Our staff is committed to providing you and your player the very best experience.
