About San Francisco Vikings

SF Vikings is a non-profit soccer organization , with a female president and 10 female coaches on the staff of 32 coaches.

SF Vikings Club has grown dramatically in recent years, with 300% expansion since 2009.

Yet we have managed this growth without stress for our players and parents.

Always committed to coach education, we have helped 19 of our 32 coaches achieve a US Soccer Federation “D” License or higher.

With supplemental fields and gyms, and through extensive camps, we offer additional training time unique in San Francisco. We know club soccer is not cheap, but by being a non-profit organization overseen by a volunteer board, we can assure you that 100% of your club fees are going back into the programs for the players.

We are committed to equal opportunity for women coaches, with 10 on staff.

Registration Process and tryouts for 2016

If you wish to join a SF Vikings 2015-16 soccer team, find out more information about our current teams and coaching staff, or register for tryouts for the fall 2016 teams, please click the appropriate link on the menu on the left side of this page. No committment to registration for fall 2016 can be collected until after Feb 10th.

The tryouts for Fall 2016 competitive teams for players with birth years 2009-2003 will be Jan 9th & Jan 23rd.  If your child has a birth year of 2002, 2001, 2000, 1999, or 1998  birth year, those tryouts will be in March or at the team's spring practice .

How does San Francisco Vikings compare to other clubs?

SF Vikings has existed for over 90 years because its members are passionate about soccer. We are constantly seeking to improve training efficiency and focus on providing a pathway for individual player develpment from microsoccer to the highest level available in San Francisco, the NPL teams in SF Elite Academy. SF Vikings believes that collaboration is a key component for success, and our teams work together and share coaches so that players have opportunities to move up or down to find the appropriate level of challenge.

SFVSC AGM 2015

The Vikings Club held its Annual General Meeting  at the County Fair Building at 7:15pm on May 12th, 2015

The County Fair Building is located in Golden Gate Park, at 9th Ave & Lincoln Ave and the meeting is in the Auditorium

 This was an  opportunity for our parents, coaches and board members to all get together and share ideas about the Club, and how we can continue to improve our training and service to the members.

 In particular I know many of you are confused about the playing leagues options available for our teams and Jim Feuille, board member and coach, will provide an overview of the youth soccer in Northern California.
