Well over 2,000 kids play organized soccer in Davis every year, which is remarkable when you consider that there are only about 8,600 school-age kids in Davis. The vast majority of these kids play recreational soccer through AYSO, which is a volunteer-run nonprofit that offers soccer leagues for kids ages 4 through 18. Davis also has a "club" soccer team, called Davis Legacy (a.k.a. Davis Youth Soccer League, that provides a more competitive experience for experienced players. There is even enough interest to support several summer soccer camps and at least two small businesses that offer soccer classes for kids as young as 2 years of age.
