League History

The Berkeley Coed Soccer League was established to provide organized opportunities for recreational and/or somewhat competitive adult soccer. The league’s focus is to promote sportsmanship and respect to all participants. The league was founded by Carmen Patao in 2002. She knew there was a need for a fun and recreational adult co-ed soccer in the East Bay having founded another co-ed league in 1997. The current league started playing at Ocean View Park in Albany. She started the league with 4 teams and as the league was expanding they moved to Gabe Catalfo Field in Berkeley.

11v11 is played in Spring and Fall. The league plays 11v11 at Gabe Catalfo and Gilman fields (a.k.a. Tom Bates Sports Complex). In 2008 7v7 play began in Winter and Summer games began. 7v7 games are played at Gilman fields only.
