CYSL provides youth soccer programs for approximately 900 players a year. About 300 of these players participate in the Nado Select Program. The other 600 play in the Recreational Programs.
The Select program is designed for the intermediate to advanced player and is devoted to the enjoyment of the game in a competitive environment, with a higher level of training, time, local travel and financial commitments. Nado Select teams participate in Presidio League or SDDA League. SDDA entry is contingent upon SDDA League admittance and previous team performance. All Select players are coached by CYSL’s Professional Coaches.
The Recreational Program is devoted to the enjoyment of the game in a recreational environment without the emphasis of higher level of competition and time commitment. The purpose of the program is to provide an opportunity for the participant to have fun, learn the sport and develop life skills including a life long love of the game.
