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.

Next Steps in Place to Insure Every Player Gets Proper Placement on a Fall 2016 Team
Many thanks to the parents and players, as well as SF Glens Evolution coaches, staff, and volunteers, that made our second tryout date a terrific event. Again, we had over 1,000 players attend and we were not only inspired by the beautiful setting at Beach Chalet Soccer Fields but the amazing talent on display.
Our club will be getting in touch with each and every player very soon as we pride ourselves on having the right team placement opportunity for players of all levels.
In the meantime, please take a moment to look below at a few of the pictures and videos from the terrific day, read our 2016 Tryout FAQ to learn exactly what happens next, or let us know if you have any further questions.
Additionally, if you have a player that was unable to attend either of our tryout sessions please contact us to see if an individual evaluation may be made.
SF Glens Evolution Organization wishes to thank all who came out to our 1st tryout yesterday at Crocker Amazon. We hope you found the process and people we had in place very efficient and organized, and we hope your child had a good overall tryout experience.
History was made yesterday in San Francisco: Over 1,200 players attend our tryout event yesterday. The quality and enthusiasm of the players was something that all of our teams of coaches were talking about. We are all truly excited and proud to be a part of this new club, SF Glens Evolution, and we look forward to welcoming as many of you as possible to be a part of it as well.
A few reminders:
THANKS AGAIN AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AT THE BRAND NEW COMPLEX AT BEACH CHALET ON THE 23RD!
