2019 Spring Season
Spring 2019 Microsoccer Season
The Spring 2019 schedule is now live. Click here to view the schedule.
Games on April 6th are ON. There is a slight drizzle but the fields are dry enough that SFRPD has kept them open.
The Microsoccer Games scheduled for Saturday March 23rd are being rescheduled for Saturday May 18th, at the same time and locations as the March 23rd schedule.
Team registration for Fall 2019 Microsoccer will open on April 15th on THIS LINK
Fall team registration closes on May 14th. The fall season will start on September 14th and there will be 6 games.
There will be a bye on October 12th for Fleet Week
Spring Practice permits start on March 18, 2019
There will be 6 games, and there are no games on April 20th.
Microsoccer is a developmental league, with no scores or standings being kept. All players must play 50% of the game.
Depending on which of the two venues that your team is scheduled to play at, there will be an additional bye week due to SF Rec & Park events. If your team is scheduled to play at Little Rec in Golden Gate Park, then that venue will skip April 13th due to the Eggstravaganza event. If your team is scheduled for Marina Green, then you will skip May 4th as the sailing race will create terrible congestion at the Marina.
Week 6 game day for both venues is May 11th, and the rainout makeup date is May 18th.
Fall rosters roll over to the spring season so any player that was registered in the fall does not need to re-register to the same team. Players may drop or transfer from their fall team by having a parent/guardian email firstname.lastname@example.org requesting to be either dropped or transferred. New players will need to use the registration instructions and assignment codes sent to the team manager after they have submitted their team registration form.

Fall 2019 Practice Field Process
SF Rec & Park will again be using the Spotery system this spring where you can select your practice field in a draft. Each team will be randomly assigned a draft position number and then will have a four-hour window to make their selection. Here are the details:

How to form a team
Microsoccer is A SCHOOL GRADE BASED LEAGUE.
There will be 3 divisions:
Pre-Kindergarten (currently called U6)
Kindergarten (currently called U7)
First Grade (currently called U8)
Every team must have at least 10 players registered, but no more than 13.
Each season you will have an opportunity to make a bye request, but please note that if you request a bye, you will play one fewer game.
For teams that still find problematic schedule issues, the following applies:

Micro Soccer has adopted two new forms of restarts that the US Soccer Federation has encouraged us to implement regarding throw-ins and goal kicks.
Throw-ins will be replaced with Kick-ins. This means anytime a ball goes out on the sideline the restart will now be an indirect kick (has to touch two players before a goal can be scored). The opponents must stand 3 adult steps away from where the ball is placed on the sideline.
The rational behind this is to help increase the repetition, that players at this age need, to develop their strike of the ball and to help increase passing ability.
Goal kicks will still be taken by the defensive team whenever the offensive team kicks the ball out of bounds on the end line. The difference will be that when the goal kick is taken the opposing team will have to drop into their own half behind the midfield line. The opposing team can cross midfield once the ball has been kicked.
For example, the blue team is attacking the red teams goal. A blue player takes a shot that goes wide of the goal so it is the red teams goal kick. As the red team sets up to take their goal kick every player on the blue team must drop into their own half behind midfield.
The rational behind this change is that often the team taking the goal kick cannot kick the ball far enough forward to clear it out of their area and then the offensive team comes straight back at them. In addition to that this also allows for a better concept of "building out of the back" and possession based soccer.
Vikings Summer Camp
SF Viking Summer Camp has been around for years, yet for many of our soccer players it is their first camp experience.
Our staff consists of nationally licensed coaches, former professional, and college players, who were selected for their ability to teach and their passion for the game.
Our coaches ensure that players of every age and ability level will have fun learning the game of soccer. The low player to coach ratio enables the coaches to provide continuous attention and individual skills training.
The camp also provides a variety of group exercises, small-sided games, and full field matches.
In addition to this first class training every player will receive an official camp shirt, soccer ball, and bag. At the end of the week every player will also get a personal evaluation from the coaching staff.
We specialize in coaching soccer to 5-12 year olds.
For more information and to register please visit www.sfvsc.org.
Volunteer to CoachIt is not hard to be a coach. We will give you 4 balls, 8 flat cones, 4 tall cones and a bag. You run a play group and teach the concept of a boundary and to kick the ball in a direction. The game almost teaches itself, so you don't need any playing experience just a good attitude for managing kids.
Field Rules and Regulations
Regardless of SF Park and Rec rules at specific field locations, there are absolutely no alcoholic beverages allowed at the soccer matches. This means anywhere in the vicinity of the fields.
Also, please do not bring your dog to the field and ask a young child to stand off the edge of the field to "watch the dog" while the parent watches the game.
It is distressing to our field marshalls to have to watch a young child with a dog standing off alone. Please, keep your dog at home for the soccer game. This has caused situations where the field marshalls did not want to send the kids away, but the parent was then sending the kids away to comply with the "no dog" rule. Our Rec & Park permit states "NO DOGS" so please do not bring a dog to the playing field vicinity.
