YUCAIPA, CA – If you and your family love soccer, then you can’t miss this event! There’s something for the whole family to do at the First Annual Yucaipa Adult Soccer League (YASL) “Kick-Off Karnival”. The event is sponsored by the newly formed YASL in conjunction with the Yucaipa High School Girls Soccer team.

It will be held at Yucaipa High School on Sunday, June 27 from 2:00pm – 7:00pm.

Adults can play in full-field “pick-up” games, while children 10 and under can play in short-sided games. Individuals or teams can play on this day. The cost to play in a pick-up game is $5 per player which goes toward referee fees and field costs.

There will also be soccer-themed carnival games adults and children can play for great prizes. Games such as juggling the soccer ball, soccer bowling, chip shot accuracy, penalty shoot-out, target practice and many others will test your soccer skills. There will also be a raffle for great prizes going on throughout the day.

Kids will also have fun at the “Beauty Parlor Tent” which will feature face painting, temporary tattoos, nail painting, and hair coloring. A snack bar featuring BBQ hotdogs and hamburgers will also be available. Entry and parking for the event is FREE.

The purpose of this event is to bring attention to the newly formed adult soccer league. First game day is July 11th. The league will seek to develop into different divisions, including men over 30, women over 30, and an open division.

This will be based on the available teams. All games will be played on Sundays at Yucaipa High School. The Yucaipa Adult Soccer League will be dedicated to providing a level playing field for all who participate. This is a community based non-profit program where a large percentage of the funds are donated back to the community to help support local club teams, high school athletics, and recreation soccer. In fact, ALL proceeds from the carnival and snack bar will go toward the YHS Girls Soccer program on June 27.

The league will ensure that good sportsmanship and fair play will be enforced so all who participate can have a great time playing the sport of soccer. Some of the area’s top FIFA licensed referees who officiate high school and college, will be refereeing the YASL games.

If you are interested in playing in the Yucaipa Adult Soccer League or have a team wishing to enter, you can register at the Kick-Off Karnival on June 27; or at Yucaipa High in the GIRLS PE office on Tuesdays from 5 to 7pm and on Sundays from 10am to Noon.

Ask about manager incentives. For more information contact Melissa Huggins at or call (951) 330-1660. Come out and take advantage of our summer special of $50 per player for the first season. If you are an individual wishing to play but don’t have a team, the coordinator can put you on an individual “pick-up” list where teams can find you.
