ABOUT SONOMA VALLEY UNITED

ABOUT US

Sonoma Valley United (SVU) is a non-profit, 501(c) 3, youth soccer organization that operates both recreational and competitive leagues. Sonoma Valley United is the consolidation of two soccer programs: Sonoma Valley Youth Soccer Association (SVYSA) and Sonoma SC. These clubs have been an integral part of the community for over 40 years, sharing a legacy of successful player development, stable operations, and a commitment to the community.

 

SVU was formed to continue providing excellent soccer programming for the Sonoma Valley community with the goal of fostering a unified love for the game of soccer and ongoing support for our youth. Initially offering youth recreational soccer, the organization’s programming has expanded to include competitive soccer, Tiny Cleats for children ages 3-4, winter Futsal, adult programs, and summer camps.  SVU now serves over 1,000 local players seasonally. Programs are offered at various levels and are designed to serve anyone interested in the sport of soccer, with opportunities for young and old, and for novice to advanced players.

The original mission of the organization has not changed since its founding in 1977, but adaptive strategies for achieving this mission have been implemented over the years.

Sonoma Valley United’s Staff and Board of Directors are dedicated to ensuring the positive experience of every SVU member.  It is our sincere hope that each participant enjoy their current activities and return for further involvement. SVU is here to provide the means for everyone to enjoy the world’s greatest game!
