We are a community of dedicated professionals, with a staff with over 100 years of combined experience, and hundreds of volunteers serving youth players in Northern California. Our Mission is to create opportunities for children in Northern California to experience the Beautiful Game.
WHAT WE DO
The Future of Soccer
With over 200 affiliated member leagues and clubs, we offer a democratic structure for affiliated members to directly engage and drive the evolution and success of our organization. By affiliating with Cal North you join a team of soccer leaders and innovators with a passion for the game ready to help you succeed.
Parents, players, and coaches have the opportunity to participate in competitive and recreational soccer regardless of skill level or ability. We offer grassroots programming as well as competitive playing opportunities at the regional and national levels. Our programming is designed to help you find the right opportunities for the players in your soccer community.
“Clovis Junior Soccer League has been part of the CalNorth family for the past 46 years. The professionalism and support that we have received from the State office and staff is one of the main reasons that we continue our partnership. We continue to look forward to the great things to come.“
League President, Clovis Junior Soccer League
Soccer Without Borders has been proud to partner with Cal North for the past 12 years. Cal North provides SWB teams with positive, formal competition opportunities through their annual tournaments and ongoing leagues. Throughout that time, Cal North staff have worked to accommodate the unique needs of SWB's teams, which are made up of recently arrived refugee and immigrant students, and collaborated with our staff to make sure our players can be included and have the best possible soccer experience. In particular, SWB teams look forward to the annual Founder's Cup and Association Cup, which are some of the few larger tournaments available to recreational level teams. These tournaments are a highlight for our players and something they look forward to every year.
