SMC FC was founded in 2008


The Mission of San Mateo County FC (SAL) is to utilize the sport of soccer as a vehicle through which to promote academic excellence, healthy choices, youth leadership and community involvement amongst economically disadvantaged and underserved youth in San Mateo County.


San Mateo County Football Club (SAL)  was founded in 2008, not just as Soccer Club, but a community strategy whose members and families give back to their community, maintain good academic standing, receive leadership training and become role models to the younger recreational leagues that the SMC offers to the youth of San Mateo County communities.

San Mateo County FC (SAL) offers high-quality training and coaching to all club members. With 35% of the youth in our target community being obese and 25% of the youth unable to pass the California Physical Fitness Test, we are committed to keeping our kids healthy and active. San Mateo County FC (SAL) evaluates all participants for physical fitness and works with them throughout the season to increase their fitness. The fitness levels of all athletes are pre and post-tested and monitored throughout their time at the club.
