Spring Program

VERY BIG NEWS UPDATE!!! (February 19, 2021)

We are excited to announce that we may be closer than we think to returning to play games.  With the new guidelines announced on February 19th, it appears as though we will be able to start playing games as soon as Orange County hits an average of 14 cases per 100,000.  Please go to: https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/COVID-19/outdoor-indoor-recreational-sports.aspx to see the revised guidelines.

There are still some open spots in some divisions, so please pass along the following to link to any interested players (Please Note, Late Registrations are subject to a $50 Late Fee):

WE NEED COACHES
We are still in need of more Volunteer Coaches (especially in the 6U & 8U Divisions).   Each Team needs to have certified Coach Volunteer to hold weekday practice (and to help manage team uniforms and Saturday Sessions).   Please fill out a Volunteer Application on the Website (contact [email protected] or [email protected] with any questions).

Here are a few highlighted guidelines:

  • If your player is sick or feels sick, STAY HOME
  • Players will have their temperatures taken before allowed on the field.  Please Check your player's temperature before arriving at the fields
  • Wear your mask to and from the field and when you can not socially distance
  • Coaches and players will be wearing masks when unable to keep six feet apart or during break periods.
  • Players will be distanced during trainings and do not require face masks while training.
  • The season focus will be on individual soccer skills and fitness training until further notice.
  • Games and scrimmages are not allowed at this time.  We are currently in the  Purple Tier and the current State of California Guidelines require Orange County to be in the Orange Tier for Youth Soccer to allow Games/Scrimmages.
  • Players need to have their own equipment (No Sharing of Equipment)
    • Bottled Water
    • Soccer Ball (each player needs their own individual soccer ball)
    • Shin Guards
    • Goalkeeping Gloves (for those who choose to be Keepers - 10U and above)
  • We are one community and it takes all of us to make this work. Thank you for helping!
