Downtown Soccer Club announced today that it has been admitted to, and will participate in, the Southern California Developmental Soccer League for the Fall 2013 Season. The move to the SCDSL, regarded as the premier gaming circuit in Southern California, provides further validation of the extraordinary efforts of the DSC board and staff to bring access to the highest levels of competition to all players in central Los Angeles. DSC will field 18 teams in the SCDSL Fall Season including several competing with many USSF Developmental Academies in SCDSL’s prestigious Flight 1.
The SCDSL was created in 2011 to serve the needs of clubs looking to have the ability to control player and team environments. The SCDSL platform and format were designed collectively by coaching directors from some of the most respected youth clubs in the country with an emphasis on providing a match day environment conducive to promoting player development. The principal mission of the SCDSL is to allow all participating clubs to have the freedom to make decisions that are in the best interest of all their players and to place the League’s priority first and foremost on true player development.
BU14 White -- CSL Bronze West Champions
On Sunday, Downtown Soccer Club BU14 White became the first DSC team to claim a medal for the Fall 2012 season and secure promotion to a higher division for next season. Only a draw was necessary to claim the championship and the team secured the result and one point against a tough PCSC team, 1-1, to make them 10 points clear with three matches to go. The team’s lone goal was scored on a 55-yard free kick by goalkeeper, Jonathan Cervantes. DSC BU14 White’s championship is especially remarkable because the team was formed just a few months ago. DSC BU14 White will compete in Coast Soccer League’s Silver Bracket next year. Players interested in trying out for the team should contact us
