The FC Elk Grove Wolves U14 boys soccer team represents the best competitive seasonal team (D3) from the Elk Grove boundaries. They competed in District 6 of the CYSA-Cal Soccer League (CCSL), a new state wide playing league.
The Wolves won the District Cup "cup challenge bracket" in December 2011. This is the highest bracket for seasonal teams and their name will be engraved on the District VI Cup that is passed on every year. They dominated the tournament with Victories over Grass Valley, Eureka, and Loomis in the pool play. They finished with a 4-1 win over Folsom in the championship held at Bartholomew Sports Park in Elk Grove (The Wolves had also won the district cup in 2009 as a U12 team and were the first Elk Grove team ever to be engraved on that perpetual cup dating back to 1982).

During the course of the year the Wolves participated in three tournaments placing 2nd in the Elk Grove Sunstroke and Marysville Pumpkin kick, and finishing 1st in the El Dorado Hills Shoot out. The had a record of 10-2 in those three tournaments.
The Wolves finished the season by winning the CYSA Association Cup.  The tournament cup first round was held in Morgan Hill. The Wolves advanced with a wins over the Manteca Rangers and Petaluma Express. The Elite 8 and Final 4 rounds were played back in Elk Grove where the Wolves felt right at home wins against the El Dorado Hills Blue Devils and Loomis Forza. The final was also played at Bartholomew on Saturday, January 21st. The Wolves finished the season in attack style by defeating the Rocklin Rage 3-0 and claiming the coveted Association Cup.

The wolves team is represented by 7th, 8th, and 9th graders from the Elk Grove School District.
