The Pacific Coach Spring Soccer League (PCSSL) started in 1999 and is open to any AYSO team from 10 through 19U whose players are properly registered in their home region. PCSSL is open to AYSO Core/Select, AYSO Extra, and AYSO United teams.

The league facilitates competitive play across the San Francisco Bay Area peninsula encompassing AYSO Areas 2A, 2B, 2J, and 2N from San Francisco south to San Jose and Prunedale, and since 2016 we are reaching east to AYSO Area 2C in the East Bay.

Games are played on Sundays starting the first weekend in March and finishing usually before Memorial weekend in late May. Our key dates are posted on the Calendar page.

Team Registration

PCSSL is a league of teams and PCSSL does not handle player or volunteer registration -- each team's home AYSO region is responsible for player registration, volunteer registration and obtaining fields for games to be played.

Teams are encouraged to submit an application including the necessary fees. Each Area has a PCSSL Registrar who will process the team applications, check the rosters, and will process and/or stamp each player's ID card.

Registration typically opens in December and closes in January. There is a mandatory coaches meeting in mid-February to address rules and processes and also to manage balancing teams in flights for each age division.

All the details are on the Team Registration page.


PCSSL's rules are fairly standard for tournament and competitive play but there are several notable differences from what is typical in AYSO Core. However there are several parts of the rules that are specific to how PCSSL operates.

Everyone involved in PCSSL is expected to be familiar with the rules. Read them, and carry a copy just in case.

A current copy of the rules can always be found on the PCSSL Rules page..


PCSSL is an all-volunteer organization. We are successful because you help make us successful.

For information about what coaches need to know, be familiar with the Coaches section.
