The SF Glens Competitive soccer program is for girls and boys, U8 and older (birth year 2015 - 2004), who want to work hard, develop their skills and soccer experience, and compete against the best players in the most competitive playing leagues and competitions.
We offer a complete player development path for all levels of competitive players and teams. And due to our access to non-City fields and facilities, we can provide players a chance to compete in the top leagues and top state competitions earlier than any other program here in San Francisco.
Our competitive program features top coaches (more licensed coaches than any club in San Francisco), a committed technical staff, and access to added training, events, and soccer experiences (some of our top players and teams travel abroad to experience professional academies). Everything is geared toward player development based upon a club model (multiple teams per age group), as well as a proven curriculum of technical skills accompanied by a carefully planned and age-appropriate introduction to tactics.
With competitive soccer at SF Glens Soccer Club, the commitment level from the players and families is more demanding. Our competitive teams train, at a minimum, two times per week with the top teams often securing additional private training time and clinics.
Additionally, competitive teams typically participate in both the level-appropriate tournaments we host as well as two to four other high profile tournaments annually, some of which may require teams to travel for overnight stays or possibly out of state for games.
The club will have a spot for every child and offers every level of youth soccer available, including but not limited to MLS NEXT, USL Academy, National Premier League (NPL) Club Status, NorCal Premier Soccer, SF Youth Competitive (Upper House), and Micro Soccer. We also are affiliated with ODP via Cal North and PDP through U.S. Club Soccer, as well as Competitive Futsal through our partner club Bay City Futsal Club.
We are the ONLY SF CLUB with MLS NEXT in ALL age groups (U13-U14-U15-U16-U17-U19),
USL Academy (U15-U19 Boys & U17-U19 Girls), and NPL Champions League qualifiers (U16-U17-U19).
The Glens have been awarded Players First (P1) Club Status, a stamp of approval from U.S. Club Soccer on the club's development philosophy and execution. We are also proud to have never turned away a single family due to financial hardship thanks to our Scholarship Fund.
And in 2022, we will be the first SF club with our own facility at Treasure Island. Be a part of what we're building together in San Francisco!
