Our History

Due to overwhelming support from within the soccer community, MVLA San Jose is excited to partner with MVLA and continue to foster and grow talented young women and their love of soccer. 

Originally called Los Altos Soccer Club (1972), MVLA has been a recognized name in the soccer community for generations. From its inception, MVLA has inspired young players to pursue their passion for soccer through dedication, determination, and most important, for the joy of the game. Over the years, we have provided wonderful growth, development and career opportunities for thousands of players. Combined with the hundreds of volunteers that have selflessly committed themselves to this amazing organization, MVLA is truly comprised of a community of families, parents and players. This has earned MVLA the prestigious reputation as a premier youth organization within the soccer community.
