As with every season, ​​​​​​Players may register on ONE TEAM only!  

  • While players are allowed to guest on multiple teams, each roster must have a minimum amount of unique players (SF Rec & Park rule). This is to keep field allocations fair across all leagues of play (SF Microsoccer, SFYS Recreational, SF Competitive Upper House, SFYS Varsity, CalNorth CCSL, NorCal/NPL, ECNL, MLSNext). So consider carefully where your player wants to practice and play before registering for a team, as it is not always possible to transfer to another team.

  • Players are considered Free Agents for Spring registration. No team or club may automatically re-roster a player. Players determine where they play.

Once you've found your team, registration is easy!

    • ​​Click on Sections II and IV from the Table of Contents for How to Create an Account/Player Profile and Player Registration Instructions

  • Spring team fees are team-based and paid by a team administrator or club registrar. There is no registration cost for players returning from the Fall 23 season. Players new to SFYS will pay a $30 fee at registration to cover insurance and administrative costs.

  • Need Financial Aid? Click here. (SFYS Leagues only)
    • Spring team fees are team-based, but financial aid is still given on an individual basis. Once a player's application is reviewed, the aid amount will be applied as a refund to the team fee paid by a team administrator, who will in turn deduct that amount from the player's family contribution.

Teams may continue to add players up to their roster maximum during the season, but there are a few important deadlines:

  • December 7th: Team Registration deadline (teams must have the minimum number of players registered by this date to qualify for field allocations)
  • January 15th: Last day teams and players are eligible for refunds (Click here for full Refund Policies)
  • March 1st: deadline for all players and coaches to register in SQWAD and submit documentation for any outstanding requirements to guarantee eligibility for the first weekend of games
    • NOTE: teams can continue adding players after this date; this deadline is only to guarantee that your registration will be processed in time for the first weekend of games
  • ​​During the season: please allow up to five business days for SFYS to process your registration
  • ​​Remember: Players missing validation of any registration requirements are not eligible to participate in SFYS games.

SF Youth Soccer does not place players or coaches on teams. Players find a team first, then register online (or via The SQWAD app). SFYS Recreational, Upper House and Varsity Players should refer to the instructions below:
