Great Soccer Is Played Here!

16U Program

The 16U program is run by our Area 11L.  The games are mostly played in South Orange County from Lake Forest to San Clemente, with some games in other local Orange County cities. The teams are placed into two flights of teams. The top two teams in the top pool have the opportunity to move on to the Sectional Playoffs.
