District IX - California Youth Soccer Association

Welcome to CYSA District IX

The California Youth Soccer Association (CYSA) is a not-for-profit corporation supported through player registration fees, league fees, sponsorships and donations. CYSA is divided into nine Districts. District IX covers the counties of Lassen, Modoc, Plumas, Shasta, Siskiyou, Tehama, and Trinity. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for youth players of all levels of skill to participate in soccer programs. To find out where you can register your son or daughter in District IX, check our league directory. If you are having trouble figuring out which league to register with contact the District Registrar here.
