ABOUT US

The creation of Mountain House Youth Soccer League is largely due in part to the merger between two well-established and reputable Mountain House based soccer programs: Royalty Kicks & World United Soccer Camps. We see a greater benefit to the Mountain House community by merging resources and more importantly combining our collective coaching & leadership experience in the fields of Youth Soccer Player Development and Youth Sports in general. 

MHYSL's directors Billal Samy, Yousef Samy, Jimmy Hong, and Jose Mallillin, have a collective vision to provide MHYSL athletes an opportunity to participate in a fun & challenging environment, while also emphasizing on a developing coaching environment. 
 

Our coaches are amongst the best in the space of youth soccer development, with years of experience both on and off the field. They bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to our community, creating a player-first development environment with each passing season.

As a club, we are dedicated to continuous improvement. We believe that every game, every practice, and every interaction is an opportunity to grow and learn. We are always seeking new ways to challenge ourselves and raise the bar for what we can achieve together.


 

Off the field, we are deeply involved in our community. We believe that soccer has the power to bring people together and foster positive change, and we strive to use our platform to make a difference in our community and hopefully beyond!
