Jose Coronado Indoor Soccer League

Jose Coronado

Registration for the 2024 season will open on October 10, 2023. Stay up to date on registration by emailing to join the league’s mailing list.

2024 Season Info: Beginning Sunday, January 7, 2024, at SFRPD recreation centers across the city, boys, girls, and co-ed teams, from 5U–18U, in Recreational, Intermediate, and Advanced divisions, will compete in our 25th season of 5-on-5 SFRPD Jose Coronado Indoor Soccer! The rules are similar to traditional futsal – it's 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.

Approved Coaches: All Coaches must have passed an SFRPD Volunteer Background Check, show proof of COVID-19 Vaccination, and show proof of completion of Mandated Reporter and Concussion Awareness Training in order to participate.  Each coach will be required to show a picture ID and confirm that his or her name is on our official list before each game begins. 

History of the League: In the 1970s and -80s, 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 Jose Coronado Playground. 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 Park Department, started the Jose Coronado SFRPD Indoor Soccer League. We would like to thank his friends and family for keeping his spirit alive in the city, neighborhood, and game he loved.
