The MVLA boys program is focused on the proven player development approach that has earned MVLA and its world-class players a strong reputation for their skill, teamwork and overall character at any age group.
Boys Premier Leagues
The program today is guided by Technical Director Albertin Montoya and Executive Director Joe Cannon. Their first-hand experience as MVLA players has had an impact on their own lives that they in turn want to share with as many athletes as possible. The boys program includes leagues such as competitive teams that play Elite Clubs National Teams (ECNL), NorCal‘s National Premier League (NPL), NorCal Premier League, California Regional League and Cal North Soccer.
Norcal Premier League
The primary focus of a successful soccer program will be the individual player and their families. With a primary focus of soccer coaches, teams and clubs will be the development of children as people first and players second. Individual player development will be a clubs primary focus and team success a secondary but important goal. NPL believe the NorCal Premier Soccer League offers a league supporting the players, parents, coaches and clubs in this endeavor.
The Boys ECNL is based on the values of grass-roots collaboration and innovation, and supports the independence and freedom of coaches and clubs to fully manage the development path for their players, including the system and style of play, the competitive calendar, and all aspects of the development path. The Boys ECNL will raise standards in training, competition, club organization, and coaching in a holistic development program.
Cal North Youth Soccer
The mission of the Cal North is to serve all children and our communities by providing opportunities that allow each child to grow, learn, mature and succeed by becoming productive adult members of society through the development, promotion, and offering, regardless of race, color, religion, age, sex, national origin and/or ability, comprehensive community based leagues that offer a complete range of youth soccer opportunities for all children of all ages and abilities.
