The Marin Coed Soccer League was established in Spring 1986 by Rob Ireson, to provide a fun and safe opportunity for recreational adult soccer in Marin. Although playing soccer keeps us healthy and feeling young, to many of us, this league is our community. We are a group of professionals that get to bond together, laugh, and have some fun. To most of us, throwing on our shin guards and taking to the field is our weekly escape from the grind—Away from computers, cell phones and the stresses of life. Running around a field with good friends, surrounded by the beauty of Mt. Tamalpais, removes all those things from our minds, leaving room for better things like adrenalin, endorphins and laughter. Some of our players have been on the same team for 20 and 25 years, but we’re always welcoming in new players, keeping the teams fresh and competitive.
The MCSL encourages friendly competition. No standings are kept, and there are no trophies for winning. Good Sportsmanship Awards are given to three teams each season based on voting by each team. The primary motivation for our players is the camaraderie of playing together in a game we all love.
On Saturday, June 4th, 2016 we will celebrate our 30-year anniversary with our traditional end of season tournament played at Redwood High Schools Ghilotti Field, followed immediately by a BBQ at Piper Park. We will be honoring Rob Ireson for his tireless efforts in creating and nurturing the league.

Participation is open to women over 16 and to men at least 30 years in age. The MCSL plays on Saturdays with Spring and Fall season "round-robin" schedules with an end-of-season tournament and BBQ in the Spring. Most games are played at the Community Fields at Redwood High School in Larkspur, and also at Tamalpais High School in Mill Valley. There are currently eleven teams in the League. The maximum number of teams we can accept due to field availability and scheduling needs is twelve.
