THE CLUB

Who We Are

Headquartered in Marina del Rey, California, Del Rey City Soccer Club comprises several adult soccer teams competing at a range of competition levels. The club’s premier 11v11 team, Del Rey City SC, competes with teams at the national level in the United Premier Soccer League (UPSL) and was a 2014 member of the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL).

Founding

The club was formed by a group of FoxSoccer.com and FoxSports.com employees, largely software engineers, as a 7-a-side recreational soccer team playing in the Santa Monica Adult Soccer League (SMASL). Originally named Del Rey United, the team played its first-ever match on February 7, 2009.

Philosophy

We emphasize our values of good sportsmanship, teamwork, professionalism and expect model behavior from our players on the field. While we view soccer as a physical sport and believe our players should play hard, we believe, above all, in playing fair. We discourage tactics such as diving and do not tolerate serious, intentional fouls meant to injure another player.

About

THIS IS MARINA DEL REY

Our home is in Marina del Rey. Our stadium is in Playa del Rey.
We derived our name “Del Rey City Soccer Club” from these two neighborhood communities.

PROFESSIONAL, MINOR LEAGUE SOCCER

In understandable terms, we are a “minor league” soccer team playing at the equivalent level of “Class A” Baseball (a.k.a “Single A” Baseball).

In specific soccer terms we are an adult Professional Development soccer team competing in a Premier League of the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA). The USASA Premier Leagues, of which there are several, are classified as “Amateur Leagues” and denoted as either a “National League” or a “Regional League.”

Del Rey City SC, the club’s premier 11v11 team, currently competes in the Western Conference of the United Premier Soccer League (UPSL), consisting of 40+ teams in the States of California, Arizona, Idaho, and Nevada. The team was also a 2014 member of the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) with 80+ teams nationwide.

WESTSIDE LOS ANGELES SOCCER CLUB

Del Rey City Soccer Club genuinely represents our local area. The club began as an adult recreational soccer club from Marina del Rey, building its name throughout Westside Los Angeles with teams playing in leagues in Santa Monica, Playa Vista, West LA, and Redondo Beach.

The vast majority of our club members and players are Westside residents living in Marina del Rey, Playa del Rey, and neighboring communities including Santa Monica, Venice, Del Rey, Playa Vista, Culver City, and Westchester. Our members also include numerous Loyola Marymount Universiy (LMU) students and graduates.

Club Honors

We emphasize our values of good sportsmanship, teamwork, professionalism and expect model behavior from our players on the field. While we view soccer as a physical sport and believe our players should play hard, we believe, above all, in playing fair. We discourage tactics such as diving and do not tolerate serious, intentional fouls meant to injure another player.

Soccer is a team sport and chemistry between players is necessary in order for a team to work together successfully. For this reason, we strive to develop a camaraderie throughout the club in addition to maintaining it on the field. To help accomplish this, we promote tolerance, self-control, and friendliness towards all others.
