Competitive club soccer allows kids to play year round in a more structured and formal environment than they get playing in their house leagues such as DYSA. There are several teams per age group which enter tournaments around the state and even beyond. They are exposed to higher level coaching and competition. They learn what it takes to be both a key player as well as to be a supporting player on a competitive team.
North Marin United is a club based in your community and built on the heritage of our our parent clubs DYSA and NYSA. The program overseen by the dedicated officials from both leagues in service to the competitive players from Novato, Lucas Valley, Terra Linda, and areas far and wide.
