EPYSL's Recreation League is the core program of the League, introducing and expanding the game of soccer to at least 450 players each season. Our Fall rec league is part of the CYSA Recreational Playing League where the emphasis is on exposure to the game, having fun and ensuring that players get ample opportunity to have field playing time.
Hosting approximately 40 teams each year, the Fall rec season opens August 1 with teams from Copperopolis, Angels Camp, Murphys, Arnold and Bear Valley training at least two days per week on various fields within the Leagues boundaries.
This year our rec players and coaches are all encouraged to attend our 4th annual EPYSL's British Challenger Training Program for 5 intensive days of soccer instruction August 3 - 7.
Regular season games begin each year on Saturday's in mid August and continue weekly until early November. For our U10 and higher divisions, EPYSL partners with the Calaveras Youth Soccer League (CYSA) and the Linden Youth Soccer Association (LYSA) to offer a wider variety of team play. Games with our interleague partners will again be hosted at Feeney Park, Toyon Middle School and at Linden Elementary.
EPYSL Winter League - U10 and higher divisional Fall rec league players are highly encouraged to consider attending our Off Season League Tryouts scheduled for Sunday, October 18 at Feeney Park. Winter League is a 6 week extension of our fall rec season and is an opportunity for rec players to participate in a higher level of play by competing against teams thought District VIII during January and February each year. For more information, visit our Competitve Programs page.
EPYSL Founder's Cup State Tournament - All U10 and higher divisional rec players are encouraged to culminate the end of the rec season by attending CYSA's Founder's Cup tournament in early December. Over 125 rec teams come together each December to test their skills against other Northern California soccer programs in this exciting weekend of soccer. Contact us for more questions.
