About our Rec Program
Palm Desert Soccer Club , a non-profit 501(c)3 member association of CalSouth which in turn is a member association of US Youth Soccer, has been offering recreational soccer programs in the Coachella Valley since 1985. Operating under the name of PDYSL, our recreation program serves around 1.000 players in the fall and approximately 250 players in our winter league.
The PDYSL fall league generally runs from mid-September through the first weekend of December. For the U6 and U8 age groups there is one practice per week and a game every Saturday, U10, U12 & U14 will have two practices per week and a game every Saturday. Games are officiated by independent, paid referees and follow the playing rules set forth by US Youth Soccer. Teams are coached by volunteers, some of whom have been involved with the club for many years, even after their own children graduated from our programs. Our Winter League follows the US Youth Soccer small-sided games format. Information on Winter League can be found here.
Our recreational soccer program fully participates in post-season tournaments offered to our CalSouth division, including the Signature Soccer program offered by CalSouth. More information on Signature League can be found here.
