For tryouts players should not wear their team uniforms, or any t-shirt that relates to a specific group, organization, or local team. Players should wear a plain white t-shirt and dress appropriate for soccer and the weather. If a player wears a team jersey or t-shirt they will be asked to change. This is so our tryouts are a fair opportunity for all kids trying out. If possible, they should also bring a soccer ball.

U14g red go undefeated in the “Santa Cruz Classic” tournament.

21787296501_7c7f1b836b_kI would like to congratulate the  U14g Red team for their outstanding weekend winning the Santa Cruz Classic in a very exciting final game.

Down 0-2 in the first half the lady Islanders fought back, and with under 2 minutes left tied the game at 2-2.  Due to tournament time constraints the game went directly to Pk’s to decide the winner.  With an unbeatable combination of accurate shooting and goalie that blocked 3 shots, they went on to win and finish undefeated.

Great job lady’s!
