SF Glens Evolution
As competitive soccer players and families make their club decisions for 2016/2017 play, we think it's worth reminding everyone what makes SF Glens Evolution unique.
Our club motto is Tradition, Community, Excellence.
They are more than simply words on a banner.
Tradition comes from the fact that the Glens were founded in 1961 and have a soccer playing tradition unmatched in San Francisco. Everything we do as club honors the fact that many came before us and many will come after. It's our job to be the best we can be to bridge the two in a way that means we're always going forward.
Community comes from our club's deep ties to the city itself, and our many efforts in fundraising and volunteering for causes that make a difference to the people of the city we represent. Our players & families want a soccer experience that is less of a business and more of a club. In short: our club is a community.
Excellence comes from our approach to training, development and competitive play. Our players are frequently the very best in their age group and our teams compete at the highest possible levels of play.
In the end we believe SF Glens Evolution offers something unique to San Francisco youth players and families:
a club that looks after a player through his or her entire development path;
a club that offers the highest number of licensed coaches;
a club that opens the doors to top playing opportunities here and abroad; and
a club where everyone has a chance to participate regardless of playing level and socioeconomic status.
Players + Programs = Performance.
Our player development model can be summarized by the simple equation above.
In order to develop top players you need to have top players. No other club has as many as SF Glens Evolution in San Francisco. It is then, through focussed and planned training with groups of skilled and talented players, that the young player can begin to develop his or her game in a way that takes it to the next level. When you come to the soccer fields around San Francisco, it's easy to spot SF Glens Evolution players training (we don't call it practice) because our players are out there--in their matching training shirts--working harder and smarter than anyone.
Importantly, we support our talented players with a large number of quality soccer development programs--all planned and executed by professional and highly-licensed coaches--that develop the many technical, tactical, physical, and psychological skills necessary to play soccer at the highest levels.
Perfromance is the natural result. SF Glens Evolution teams regularly compete for titles and cups, and have created the reputation of being "the team" to watch in San Francisco.
This year (and beyond) we hope you will consider SF Glens Evolution and all our club has to offer.

San Francisco Glens Evolution is pleased to announce a special 10-session practice program for boys and girls, ages 5-8. The practice sessions will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays for 45-60 minutes over the remaining weeks of 2015 (except the week of Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve).
Pat Maguire, Director of the SF Glens Evolution Micro Academy, will be running the practices for 24 boys and girls, who will get to train with Pat, one of the city's very best at developing young soccer talent. Pat, along with other SF Glens Evolution Micro Academy coaches, will teach the youngsters the basics of the game--coordination, agility, and ball skills--all within a beautiful private setting located in St. Francis Woods.
Please see our Micro page to learn more about our program for young kids.
