Tryouts

Thank you for your interest in MVLA Soccer Club.

Most of our teams are set for the spring season. If you are still interested in trying out, please register and a coach may contact you to schedule a drop-in evaluation if there is an available roster spot on their team.

NOTE: MVLA Spring 2023 Tryouts are for players not registered on a competitive team with a NorCal Club. If you are on a team with a  NorCal club and wish to try out, you will need to provide written approval from your current Director of Coaching and bring it to your tryout. 

MVLA will holds tryouts for all age groups in May. You will NOT need written permission to attend a tryout at that time. Please keep an eye on this page for more information closer to May (including a link to sign up) for our Fall 2023 Tryouts.

MVLA at a Glance:

For Players New to Soccer: The MVLA Shooting Stars program is open to boys and girls and offers the best soccer experience for players starting their soccer journey. There are no tryouts for the Shooting Stars program. Visit our Shooting Stars page to learn more.

Teams, Levels and Practices: 90+ competitive teams for players ages 7 to 18. Days and times for practices are determined based on coach schedule and field availability and are announced closer to the start of the fall or spring season. Most practices are held in the Mountain View/Los Altos area. Club soccer requires a training commitment of at least two times per week (sometimes three) and involves both home and away games and tournaments on weekends. Most players in club soccer play both fall and spring seasons. Visit our BOYS TEAMS and GIRLS TEAMS pages for a complete list of teams and coaches by age group.
