AYSO United Training Locations, East Bay and Silicon Valley Join NorCal Premier
After an extensive acceptance process, two of AYSO United’s Northern California training locations, East Bay and Silicon Valley, have joined NorCal Premier for their competitive youth soccer club play.
NorCal Premier is Northern California’s premier soccer league offering high-level competition with multiple divisions and year-round league play. The training locations will kick-off play in the NorCal Premier League in the Fall, pending final approval from local health officials due to COVID-19 health and safety precautions.
The training locations are looking forward to the new league and are very excited about the development opportunities it will provide for their players.
“We at AYSO United East Bay are very excited that we have been accepted to play in NorCal Premier, we have similar values in progressing our players and coaches and NorCal Premier offers appropriate competition environment for all of our age groups,” said East Bay Director of Coaching, Dave Adams.
Located in the eastern region of the San Francisco Bay Area, AYSO United East Bay is led by highly experienced coaches who are looking forward to continuing a positive learning environment for their group, that features many members of CalNorth’s Olympic Development Program (ODP) pool. After three years of premier player development and hard work, Dave Adams and the rest of their staff are proud to be a part of one of the most competitive playing leagues in Northern California.
The AYSO United Silicon Valley training location, comprised of 9 teams and 23 coaches., is located in the southern part of the San Francisco Bay Area. All head coaches hold a USSF Grassroots license, with nearly half of the total coach team, holding a USSF D License. Before joining NorCal Premier, the club played in the CalNorth (California Youth Soccer Association) league.
“We are very excited to be accepted into NorCal Premier. NorCal not only offers consistency on every playing level, but their vision of supporting coach education is an important aspect that we share,” said Silicon Valley Director of Coaching, Neil Bailey.
AYSO United National leadership goal is to provide the best club experience possible for the players in all training locations. As Dave Thomas, AYSO United National Director shared, “we are very proud to see our training locations continually excelling to create a positive environment that allows players to truly express themselves and play at a high level. I look forward to seeing their success grow on and off the pitch with NorCal Premier”.
