ABOUT US SSJYSL

South San Jose Youth Soccer league is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization offering training and organized soccer leagues for players from 4 to 19 years in age.  While we primarily serve the South San Jose area, many players travel from adjacent neighborhoods and surrounding cities to play and train with us. Our program offerings include Recreational, Competitive, a Player Development Academy, and camps.  

We promote a safe, fun, player centric environment that promotes skill development and fosters a love for the game.  


SSJYSL is managed by a group of primarily volunteer Board of Directors, though some board positions receive stipends commensurate with the workload associated with their role.  The current board is as follows:
