About Us

Dear Soccer Friends,

Thank you for visiting our website.  San Marcos Yout Soccer is dedicated to providing the best youth soccer program in North County.

The specific purpose of this organization is to provide the people of the city of San Marcos, and its neighboring communities, the game of soccer, youth activities and special projects, which will help to develop good character and physical wellness while promoting respect for others, and a sense of community involvement.

Our Mission...

"San Marcos Youth Soccer provides a locally managed program that offers recreational, social and physical development for children of all ages regardless of skill level and financial ability. SMYS encourages and promotes teamwork, player and volunteer development and community involvement through participation in our athletic programs"

San Marcos Youth Soccer (SMYS) is a locally run non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation formed by dedicated volunteers from the San Marcos Community.

With years of local experience and know how, our mission is to provide a family oriented soccer program that meets the needs of local players. A key difference in our program is that we are locally run and operated, as opposed to being governed by a National Organization. Our focus is the local players.

San Marcos Youth Soccer Organization runs an all-volunteer program.  This means that all coaches, referees or administrators are not paid for their volunteerism. 
We recognize and appreciate all of our volunteers as outstanding citizens of the community – Community Heroes - and treat them accordingly.

Without the volunteers, the kids can't play soccer.

We thank you for the opportunity to provide youth soccer in San Marcos.

District Honoree Award

Cal South Honoree AwardSan Marcos Youth Soccer was recently recognized as a CalSouth District-2 Honoree for the league's outstanding contribution to youth soccer in the north county. The award was presented at the CalSouth Awards Banquet held at the Soccer Nation Expo on February 25th. Congratulations to all of the hardworking volunteers that have contributed to the success of SMYS over the past year. This local league for local families is lucky to have the support of such caring and dedicated people.

Happy Anniversary SMYS!

MM900336545About one year ago, a group of about ten people got together and decided to form a new soccer league that would focus on the needs and desires of the local soccer community. That league became San Marcos Youth Soccer and what a year it has been! Since then, we have had over 1450 kids join our program.
