SF Competitive Upper House is a local competitive league of San Francisco teams, ages 9 to 15. SFYS Upper House is made up primarily of Gold, Silver and Bronze strength select teams. For the vast majority of teams, the competition is strong enough to provide a good challenge. Many teams prefer not to drive long distances for games every week, and prefer tournament play for additional competition.
SF Upper House is a significant step up from Recreational soccer, both in strength of play and in the commitment required. Some clubs have a minimum playing time policy, but the SFYS does not have any such rule or guarantee. Almost all the Upper House level competitive teams play at least fall and spring. The majority attend tournaments. Many teams also play winter futsal and/or summer league.
