Club Handbook

Since 2007, Downtown Los Angeles Soccer Club has been finding and featuring some of the best players in Los Angeles . From coaching them on the ins-and-outs of the sport to honing their athletic skills, we’re proud to teach not only the love of the game, but to also impart the ideals of good sportsmanship, teamwork and loyalty.


It is the belief of this club that one key ingredient in the success of competitive team sporting endeavors is clear, consistent communication between coaches, players and parents. This document is one way of explaining in detail the expectations competitive soccer will place on you as a member of Downtown Los Angeles Soccer Club. It will help clarify some areas of potential confusion and at the same time answer questions about the club and team’s decision-making process.

As you have committed to become a member of Downtown Los Angeles Soccer Club , please take the time to carefully read this handbook.

The club and each team’s success are dependent on a dedicated, knowledgeable and licensed staff. Downtown Los Angeles Soccer Club is comprised primarily of volunteers. The extent of each team’s success depends on the work and dedication of the Players, Team Administrators, Parents, and the Coaches. Talented players alone will likely achieve minimal results. It takes a combination of talent, hard work, and a little luck.

Welcome to Downtown Los Angeles Soccer Club. We wish you and your sons and daughters the best of success participating in the most popular sport in the world.
