About Us

In the Beginning:

The Diablo Adult Soccer League was formed in the late 1980's by a small group of individuals who like all of us today love the game of soccer.  In the early days there were only a few teams and few fields to play on.  Within the first 3 years the league became much more structured and began to work more closely with the community to become a functioning organization.  

Each city became responsible for building their clubs and the league quickly began to grow.

The Growing Years:


Within the first 10 years the league went from a few teams to 4 divisions of 8 teams each.  Players become more involved with the management and structure of the league and several stepped up to obtain fields and equipment and to schedule referees for each match.  The league created a Constitution basically following the FIFA laws of the game with some exceptions that were created as by-laws.  This formal structure has served DASL for almost 20 years and is the foundation of the league itself.

Where we're going:

DASL has become one of the premiere leagues in the bay area.  Each session we are petitioned by several outside teams requesting permission to join our league. The league is well known for its organization, competitiveness and most importantly for its players who continue to support and grow the organization.  DASL is a recreational soccer league known for having fun and respecting the game.  In addition players are great community leaders and supporters.  The league has a great relationship with each of the cities and towns we are associated with.  Our goal is to continue to grow our league with thoughts of creating a new "over 40" division sometime in the near future.
