Thank you for your interest in MVLA Soccer Club. Our scheduled Fall 2022 Tryouts have already taken place. Most of our rosters are set for this season. A coach may contact you to schedule a drop-in evaluation if there is still space available for your player’s age group. Please note: you might not hear back from a coach if you sign up for tryouts and the rosters in your age group are full.
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. Enrollment will open later this fall for the 10-week Winter 2023 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.
