Spring 4 v 4
Spring 4v4 is geared towards motivated/advanced players, using a fast-paced, high-touch environment to further increase their game time thought process and touch. Small-sided 4v4 games are the preferred developmental format of youth coaches worldwide. To participate, players must have some understanding of the game of soccer.
During winter, in the period between the Fall league and Spring league and/or Spring 4v4 SCCYSC sponsors weekly futsal pickup games indoors. Futsal games are perfect for developing ball-control, precision passing, and fast decision making.
Futsal is available for age groups from U8 to U18.
During the Fall season Santa Cruz City YSC holds free drop-in Striker & Goalkeeper training for boys and girls who play on one of the club's Comp or Rec teams.
SCCYSC sponsors summer camps for recreational and advanced players as well as for the competitive teams.
