History[edit]

RSJ formed in 2007 as a member of the NPSL.

In 2013, the NPSL crafted an award in memory of Alexander Arellano. Alex, the middle son of Real San Jose owner Nick Arellano, died in 2012 at the age of 25. The award goes to the NPSL's top coach of the year. Since Real San Jose moved to the UPSL the award is now given to the "Best RSJ Teammate" of the year.

After ten years competing in the NPSL the club made the switch to the UPSL for 2017.[2]
