Time Practice Sites/Times will NOT be Provided: Unfortunately, due to the size of our league and the number of available gyms in San Francisco, and the fact that it’s held during Indoor Soccer season and the SFUSD middle school soccer season, we do not have the gym space to provide practice space for every team.

If your team does not have its own space for practice, please visit http://sfrecpark.org/permits-and-reservations/athletic-fields/ to see if there are any gyms available for rental. Gyms are only available for rental if space is open on Sundays and Mondays.
