Mavericks Soccer Club

Proud to be Different

Mavericks Soccer Club is a premier youth soccer organization that plays competitively in the NorCal Premier Soccer League (NorCal) and NPL and is locally the select soccer program of the Alameda-Contra Costa Youth Soccer League (ACCYSL).  Players both in ACCYSL and outside of the league are encouraged to try out for the Mavericks teams in their age group. 

Our professional coaching staff doesn't just coach soccer, they teach young players how to be leaders first by leading themselves, and then by leading others. Our vision is to inspire young players to be different on the field and off of it by encouraging them through our club DNA to be brave, creative, relentless, and resilient. We have a rich history of serving young players (ages 6-19) in Albany, Berkeley Richmond, El Cerrito, San Pablo, Kennsington, Emeryville, Oakland and beyond. Our players come from all different communities socially, geographically, and ethnically.

Our goal is to offer the highest level of soccer to all qualified players. All we ask of a player is the ability and commitment to play at this level. The Mavericks offer an outstanding opportunity for players to reach their highest soccer potential.

Being a part of Mavericks Soccer Club, means being a part of something bigger than just soccer.

"The move to the Mavericks Soccer Club was huge for my child.
Our initial concern was centered around fitting in. The team, the coaches, and the families are tremendous. My child didn't just join the Mavericks, WE joined the Mavericks. The coaching has been phenomenal. They get my kid. They know how much to push and to support. I'd highly recommend Mavericks for all." -- Ruben Aurelio (Mavs parent)

I appreciate the management around the games & the parent community." -- Jen Yang (Mavs parent)
