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.
