Costa Mesa Soccer
They are the largest youth sports organization in Costa Mesa. With over 1,400 children participating each year, we have the program that provides a fun, competitive and safe environment that every player and parent is looking for. Regardless of a child's long term sports interest, soccer is a great starting place for children to develop individual and team skills.
Their main program is our recreational leagues. Children from the ages of 4 - 18 can participate in our Fall (Sept - Nov) and Spring (Mar - May) leagues. Games are played on Saturday and vary in length based upon age. Teams also practice twice per week (days and times will be set by the coach). Costs vary from league to league, but typically are in the $50-$80 per player range. Registration time and locations will be posted on their home page. You can also request registration information from our Registrar (see Who to Contact page).
In addition to our recreational leagues, they provide multiple opportunities for advanced players. This includes All-Star, Plus and club level play. Information on these leagues will be provded to existing players and posted on our website as each new season starts.
Costa Mesa Soccer is part of the National America Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO), that adheres to the following principles:
Everyone Plays Their program's goal is for kids to play soccer-so we mandate that every player on every team must play at least half of every game.
Balanced Teams Each year they form new teams as evenly balanced as possible-because it is fair and more fun when teams of equal ability play.
Open Registration Their program is open to all children between 4 and 19 years of age who want to register and play soccer. Interest and enthusiasm are the only criteria for playing.
Positive Coaching Encouragement of player effort provides for greater enjoyment by the players and ultimately leads to better-skilled and better-motivated players.
Good Sportsmanship They strive to create a positive environment based on mutual respect rather than a win-at-all-costs attitude, and our program is designed to instill good sportsmanship in every facet of AYSO.
Player Development They strive to improve the soccer skills and knowledge of every AYSO player from U5 to U19. This includes our VIP, which we run in conjunction with nearby regions.
