2018WINTER SEASON
JUNIOR WORLD CUP

The DMCV Shark’s Winter League Program, also known as Junior World Cup, was established in 2004 and meets on five Sundays in February and March. This Sunday league was created for boys and girls ages 5 to 12.

Junior World Cup
This program is geared toward younger players, who are looking to develop their technical ball skills and broaden their soccer knowledge with the help of our professional Sharks’ coaching staff. Players of all levels are welcome to participate and learn from some of the top coaches in Southern California. Junior World Cup was founded with the goal of creating a positive learning environment, while encouraging our players to imagine what it would be like to play for an international team such as Germany, Brazil, France, Italy, and of course the USA!!!

Each one hour session is divided into 30 minutes of technical training followed by 30 minutes of small-sided games. Below is the breakdown of times for each specific age group.

There are three age appropriate sessions each week.  Please register for the correct group. For more information please contact Erin Misaki (858) 876-3121.

2018SPRING SEASON
MINOR LEAGUE SOCCER (“MLS“)

This is the second year of our popular and revamped MLS program which provides additional skills training for our players and games.  This program will run on Fridays and Sundays.  Friday sessions will be comprised of a 1 hour training session, which includes a dynamic warm-up followed by technical skills trainings and fun games!  Sunday sessions will include a recap on some of the basic skills followed by small-sided games.  All of our sessions will be coached by our professional coaching staff, in hopes of providing our recreational players with a stronger foundation of technical skills, and a better understanding of the game.

BECOME A COACH

Every year we need more coaches, assistants and team parents. The league depends on parents to fill all these positions,and we are always looking to add to our roster of coaches, at all levels of experience. If you would like to volunteer as a coach or assistant coach, or if you know someone who is interested in making a difference in a young soccer player’s life, please contact our Director of Coaching. No experience is necessary, we will train you!

You can also register online as a volunteer at the same time you register your child and let us know which position you would like. For Head and Assistant Coaches, our Division Coordinators will be your source of information. We will only form teams for the number of coaches we have. All other players will be placed on a waitlist until another coach volunteers.

The requirements for coaching are set by our parent organization, Cal South. All Head and Assistant coaches must go through Risk Management (fingerprinting) that is paid for by the league. In addition, coaches are now required to have a coaching license and we offer a minimum or two license classes per season. You will also be asked to attend a coaches meeting in August. For detailed information, contact our Director of Coaching.
