ARTICLE I: NAME
The name of this league shall be the Capital Valley Youth Soccer League. It also shall be known as CVYSL.
ARTICLE II: BOUNDARIES AND TERRITORIES
1. The CVYSL territory is in the northeastern portion of Sacramento County that includes: (a) that portion of the San Juan Unified School District east of the River City Youth Soccer League, (b) that portion of the San Juan Unified School District northeast and southwest of the American River Youth Soccer League, (c) that portion of the Grant Union High School District east of the west edge of McClellan Air Force Base, and (d) that portion of the Roseville Joint Union High School District south of the Sacramento-Placer County line.
2. The specific boundaries of the CVYSL are: beginning at the intersection of the American River and Sunrise Boulevard, proceed north on Sunrise to Orange Avenue; turn west on Orange to York Avenue- turn east on Sunset Avenue back to Sunrise Boulevard and then proceed west on Madison Avenue to San Juan Avenue; turn south on San Juan Avenue to Winding Way; go west on Winding Way to Dewey Avenue; turn north on Dewey Avenue to Muldrow Road; proceed west on Muldrow Road to Manzanita Avenue; turn north on Manzanita Avenue and proceed to Madison Avenue; turn west on Madison and proceed to the intersection of Madison and Auburn Boulevard; proceed northeast along Auburn Boulevard to Sylvan Road; turn south on Sylvan to Community Road; east on Community to Mitchell; south on Mitchell to Highland Avenue and east on Highland to Sunrise Boulevard; north on Sunrise to Old Auburn Road and northeast on Old Auburn Road to the Placer County Line. This comprises the eastern boundary of CVYSL.
Proceed from the intersection of Old Auburn Road and the Placer County Line west along the county line to 16th Street in North Highlands. This comprises the northern boundary of CVYSL.
Proceed south on 16th Street to Q Street; turn east on Q Street to 20th Street and south on 20th along the perimeter of McClellan Air Force Base to Roseville Road, proceed southwesterly to the west end of Haggin Oaks Municipal Golf Course (Connie Drive) and then south to Auburn Boulevard; turn northeasterly on Auburn to Watt Avenue; south on Watt to Marconi Avenue; east on Marconi to Eastern Avenue; south on Eastern to Arden Way. This comprises the general western boundary of CVYSL.
Proceed east on Arden Way past Fair Oaks Boulevard to the first bend and then on a north and east trending hook (which is the south attendance boundary of Deterding Elementary School) to the American River. Proceed north and east along the AmericanRiver to the intersection with Sunrise Boulevard. This comprises the general southern boundary of CVYSL.
1 The geographical area represented here is generally the territory which historically encompassed the following soccer clubs: Carmichael, Del Campo, Citrus Heights, La Sierra, Foothill, Mission-El Camino, North Highlands-Antelope and St. Johns. Some minor adjustments were made to follow major thoroughfares rather than school attendance boundaries, which are subject to change.
2. Some major exceptions are the following:
a. Exception has been made for St. Mel's School, a private school which is located within the boundaries of the Del Campo Soccer Club. Students registered at St. Mel's School may play for the St. Mel's Soccer Club in the appropriate league regardless of where they reside.
b. Exception has been made for Dewey Fundamental School. Dewey provides a fundamental open enrollment program and as such, is not assigned a specific attendance boundary by the San Juan Unified School District. CVYSL agrees the immediate neighborhood of Dewey School is an unassigned or "grey" area between CVYSL and American River Youth Soccer League (ARYSL).
c. The area along the western side of Sylvan Road, which is presently vacant land, would normally be part of Citrus Heights Elementary School. However, since no major roads intersect on a north/south line, this territory has been ceded to ARYSL and should be considered another "grey" area.
d. Old Auburn Road, the traditional bisecting line for youth sports (little league) has been used as the dividing line between leagues. CVYSL concedes that the territory east of Sunrise Boulevard is a "grey" area.
e. Holy Family, a private school, is part of the CVYSL. Since this is not presently a separate soccer club, students must register in their area of residence or apply for a waiver.
