Team Names: Our team naming convention is changing to better reflect our tiered structure and the levels of play for our teams going into Spring 2024 leagues. We anticipate this change will bring clarity to both our current membership and our soccer community. “Premier” will be reserved for teams competing at the highest level available to them and striving to qualify for the next level higher. Gold teams will be teams playing at the top local level in their age group.
- Premier – any teams playing NorCal Premier or State Premier level or higher, and teams playing one year up at a Gold level. NPL and ECRL initials will be added to teams in those competitions.
- Gold – any teams playing GBYSL Select Gold (or NorCal Gold with approved exception); and our top U9 and younger teams.
- Silver – any teams playing GBYSL Select Silver and our second U9 and younger team.
- Bronze – any teams playing GBYSL Select Bronze.
- Academy – all other teams playing GBYSL Recreational League.
