Welcome to the Novato

Welcome to the Novato Youth Soccer Association! 

We offer a full program of youth soccer each year for over 1,400 local girls and boys, from ages five through high school.  We represent the biggest youth sports program in Novato.

Recreation League

Our recreational program, Novato Youth Soccer, kicks off each year in August.  We give kids of all ages from five and up a fun experience while also teaching the fundamentals of soccer.  No prior experience with the sport is required, and all interested youth are welcome and encouraged to join.  Games will be played in the Fall within Novato for our younger teams, and within Marin County against other community rec teams for the older players.  For more information regarding our Recreational program, please click on the Recreation tab at the top of the page.
