Arena Soccer League
Girls Recreational League
As the Y's official youth soccer technical partner, San Diego Loyal SC will provide direction and guidance to our volunteer coaches, sponsor co-branded team jerseys, and provide at least one player appearance on a Saturday game day (pending player availability). As the mental health partner for San Diego Loyal, Rady Children’s Hospital will provide resources to our players on self-confidence, positive relationships and resilience.
Our recreational soccer league plays with modified rules for each division. While practices are geared toward strengthening your child’s individual skills, game time emphasizes each player’s understanding of the sport, game rules and team competition. By the end of the season, your child will have gained a better understanding of the sport, its rules and the basic skills. Coaches will focus on developing a sense of teamwork in a setting that encourages fun, healthy, age-appropriate competition.
On or before 03/18/2023
