Poway Vaqueros Mission Statement:
The Vaqueros Competitive Soccer program is dedicated to the education and development of players who desire to play soccer at a competitive level. To achieve this, the Vaqueros strive to create an atmosphere of professional instruction on the sound fundamentals of competitive soccer; encourage and demonstrate sportsmanship and good character; and respect our coaches, referees, and fellow soccer players. Emphasis is on participation, sportsmanship, enjoyment of the game, working together as a team, and the physical and mental development of each player.
Vaqueros Competitive Teams:
The competitive program consists of 20+ teams ranging in age from 7 years to 19 years. Vaqueros teams consist of players committed to excelling in their development as a soccer player, and competitive coaches who are committed to training and leading the teams towards excellence. Competitive teams typically begin practicing the first week of May and conclude at the end of November. Some of our teams participate in post season play, attending additional tournaments, including the State or National Cup
During tryouts, we attempt to create as many teams as we can to accommodate those interested in playing competitive soccer while not just creating a team to make money but to ensure it is actually a competitive team. While we may not be able to select each person to play for PVSC, we will do our best. If there is interest and desire we do not wish to discourage your child. We strive to place the players on appropriate skill level teams and have them play at the appropriate skill level for league play.
Vaqueros Tryouts and Player Selection:
In an effort to achieve success at a competitive level, the Vaqueros conduct open tryouts annually for all players interested. Tryouts are not limited to residents of the City of Poway.
