Websites of neighboring youth soccer leagues in the area (this side of the bridges). Note: the leagues are not all part of the same umbrella organizations. AYSO, CYSA, PAL, and US Club are separate entities and their leagues do not play each other. In fact, the only neighboring league whose teams play against VYSL teams is Benicia, because we're both under CYSA-North District IV (East Bay area). We don't play against Solano teams because even though they are also with CYSA-North, they are part of District VI (Sacramento area) and they play teams ranging from Vacaville to as far as Sierra (north of Tahoe).
Some teams, however, join several competitive leagues. For instance, a Vallejo team might be playing with VYSL in the fall, with US Club Soccer in the spring, and indoors at Mare Island in the winter.
- Vallejo PAL Soccer (Police Athletic League) - Vallejo's recreational youth soccer league
- Benicia Youth Soccer League (BYSL) - both recreational and competitive teams
- American Canyon AYSO (American Youth Soccer Organization) - recreational league
- Fairfield AYSO (American Youth Soccer Organization) - recreational league
- Fairfield-Suisun Youth Soccer League (FSYSL) - recreational league
- Solano Soccer Club (SSC) - competitive league affiliated with FSYSL
- Mare Island Sports Center (MISC) - technically it's a sports facility, but they hold youth indoor soccer leagues in the winter that many teams play in.

- Random Team Name Generator
Randomly generates team names. Most are goofy like "Streaking Sugar Flakes," "Muffin Hammer Protectors," "Stupendous Salmon" and "Cajun Apple" — suitable for very young teams, perhaps, but not for, say, U-19 Boys. But every now and then, it will produce a catchy name like "Amazing Gold," "Caged Rage" or "Greatest Tan".
