2017 SFRPD Jose Coronado Indoor Soccer League
Welcome back to all returning teams and welcome to all new teams!! Thanks so much for joining us!!
Registration opens on Monday, October 10th at 10:00am! Here’s the link:
You have the choice of either filling out our online form, or uploading a spreadsheet with all of the key information about your team(s) and roster(s)…including any special requests you might have in terms of scheduling. You’ll then be able to pay and secure your spot, in person or by phone, by the close of registration on November 15th.
Beginning on Sunday, January 8th, at 13 SFRPD Recreation Centers across the city, boys and girls teams, from U5 – U18, in recreational, intermediate, and advanced divisions will compete in our 18th Season of 5-on-5 SFRPD Indoor Soccer! The rules are similar to traditional futsal – it is a fast-paced, exciting game and the league serves as a great opportunity to develop each child/team’s fundamental skills leading up to the spring outdoor season and, hopefully, a lifelong love of soccer.
Those who participated in the 2016 season along with U5-U7 players will NOT have to show proof of their birthdates in order to play. New players on U8-U18 teams will be required to show proof of their birthdates, in person, at Mission Rec Center, in order to play. All U8-U18 Coaches will be required to to show Player Passes for their teams to the referees before each game; passes from other local leagues will be honored. If you don’t have your own, we’ll create them for you.
As always, if you have any questions, please contact Nate Birnbaum or Tom Sandoval at firstname.lastname@example.org.

History of the League: In the 1970’s and 80’s, no one meant more to youth soccer in the Mission than Jose Coronado. For nearly 20 years, he helped the kids he coached on the Guadalajara Chivas club team at Folsom Park learn how to play soccer with passion, become better students, and develop into upstanding members of a community that still thrives today. As an assistant coach for McAteer High School, his teams won city championships in 1984, 1985, and 1986. A native of Guatemala and San Francisco State graduate, he tragically passed away from pneumonia in 1989 at just 44 years old. His friends and family petitioned the city to rename Folsom Park as the “Jose Coronado Playground”. And in 1999, seeing a need for a winter soccer program, Jose Guzman, Oscar Jimenez, Frank Cassinelli, and Luiz Azucena, in conjunction with the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department, started the Jose Coronado SFRPD Indoor Soccer League. In this, our 18th season, we’d like to thank his friends and family for keeping his spirit alive in the city, neighborhood, and game he loved.
On behalf of the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department, thank you to all of the coaches and players for all your support over the years!
