REGISTRATION NOW CLOSED
The Fall Recreational program is the foundation of Fusion Soccer Club. This program is designed to give each player the chance to play for the love of the game without the emphasis of high-level competition and time commitment. The purpose of the Recreational program is to provide an opportunity for the participant to have fun, learn the sport and develop life skills including a lifelong love of the game - NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY! This program runs only in the Fall season which starts in August and ends in November. Teams are coached by a volunteer parent head coach who is required to attend various Fusion Soccer Club training sessions, that provide them with insight and confidence to coach young soccer players.
The program is offered to all eligible ages, there is no limit to the number of players or teams in the program.
Practice schedules for teams in all age groups are determined by the parent volunteer coach (day, time & location), however a minimum of 1 practice per week is expected. All practices are to be held within the city limits, with school and typical work-day hours in mind when determining the start time. Depending upon the age group of the team, the length of each practice session typically lasts between 45-90 minutes, with younger players being the shortest.
U5-U12 Rec League (2019-2012)
U5-U12 teams will play in a house league created by Livermore Fusion SC, registered under US Club Soccer. Recreational age groups are birth year pure from U5 thru U10 then combine U11/U12. All teams will play between 8-10 games in total. The season will begin with a Kickoff Weekend, wherein most teams will have one game each, on both Saturday and Sunday. The remaining games of the season will be scheduled on Saturdays**. Fields are located within city limits as follows: U5/U6 > Sunset Park, U7-U10 > William Payne Sports Park, U12 > Robert Livermore Field
**Weather conditions, and/or schedule conflicts may result in a weekday game.
U13-U19 Regional League (2011-2005)
U13-U19 teams will participate in Regional Play under US Club Soccer in the NorCal Premier Super Rec division. Age groups are typically combined as U14, U16 & U19, depending on the birth year and number of registered players in each. Teams will play 8-10 league games against other clubs in the local Bay Area (ie: Pleasanton, Danville, San Ramon, Dublin etc.). Approximately half of the games will be played in Livermore, the other half are played in the opponent's city. Each team will also be entered into 1 tournament (California Cup - Fremont or Super Rec Cup - Davis)
Team formation begins in July, immediately following the close of registration. Players should expect to hear from a coach regarding their team placement at the end of July or early August. Practices may begin as early as August 1st.
Teams are created based on gender, age group (birth year), and school location. For example: In the 2023 season, if your male player was born on any date between January 1, 2019 and December 31, 2019, they are considered to be in the U5 Boys age group. (U = Under)
Players are then assigned to teams with available parent coaches volunteering from within the same or nearby area. Registration numbers may require combining players from multiple schools to fill rosters.
This is the same process that has placed players with friends and familiar coaches in the past and created new friendships each season. Due to the sheer popularity of our program, bringing in nearly 2,000 Rec players each season, we are unable to commit to accommodating requests.

We understand that circumstances may change between registration in the Spring and the start of the soccer season in the Fall. Cancelations, relocation, injuries, change in schedule or interests are some examples. There are administrative costs that the organization incurs with registration and planning for the season (administrative, staff, insurance, equipment, etc.). Therefore, the refund amount is reduced the longer you wait to cancel your registration and apply for a refund.
This information is as follows:
Requests submitted thru May 31st = Full Refund, minus $25 admin fee
Requests submitted between June 1st - June 30th = 70% refund
Requests submitted between July 1st - July 15th = 50% refund
Requests submitted as of July 15th = No refund unless the program is cancelled.
If the program is cancelled, and never started, a full refund will be given minus a $25 admin fee (per player).
If the program begins, and is cancelled at any time during the season, a prorated refund will be given based on the amount of time the program was active.
Why an admin fee? Staff members must be paid to prepare for the running of the programs throughout the year. In addition, league and insurance fees are paid for each player upon completion of their registration to participate in the program. The admin fee is to cover these costs and ensure no debt is created.
If you are interested in applying for Financial Aid, please complete the Financial Aid Application via the link below.

If a player is choosing not to participate, seems distracted and unwilling to play, cries often or has physical outbursts against other players, there might be something going on which the parent of the player needs to be aware of and address. Fusion SC supports its volunteer coaches and appreciates the valuable time they give to support the players. These volunteers have a responsibility to coach the players in a fun, SAFE environment. While they can help with some areas outside the field of play, it is expected that parents will support the volunteer coaches by addressing issues of basic commitment and behavior directly with their child. If you feel that the coach can help with this process, please kindly offer ideas or suggestions. Working together through open communication will help to achieve everyone's goal of a positive and fun season!
