Information on Youth Soccer in San Ramon

About San Ramon FC

Founded in 1973, San Ramon FC (SRFC) is a non-profit soccer club and one of a small number of clubs nationwide that has received the Players First designation from US Club Soccer. 

SRFC exists to provide residents in our community with soccer opportunities in the areas of both player and human development.

San Ramon Soccer, Inc. (dba San Ramon Futbol Club), is organized exclusively for the charitable, scientific, literary or educational purposes within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or corresponding Section of any future Federal tax code (collectively “Internal Revenue Code”).

As our club continues to expand to meet the needs of an ever-evolving and diverse community, SRFC welcomes the opportunity to serve every player at all levels of play just as it has for the thousands of club alumni who have experienced what SRFC offers.

SRFC has a proud tradition of developing not only great players but also great people.

For over 40 years the club has produced college soccer athletes at the NCAA Division I, III, III, and NAIA levels along with several Olympic Development Program players (boys and girls) at the District, State, Regional and National team levels, some of whom have played professionally, including an Olympic Gold Medalist.

Many former SRFC players have returned to our club as coaches, volunteers, adult league players, administrators, and referees.  Their effort to guide a new generation of kids in our community helps strengthen and grow San Ramon FC into what has become "more than a club" for our members.

11 Pillars of Character

Success in Soccer & Life

What essential character traits do high-level soccer players need?

San Ramon FC will strive to instill these eleven pillars of character in every player within our club.
