To all of our members at Walnut Creek Surf Soccer Club and our community,

We aren't just a soccer club, we are a community club that invests greatly into our players, coaches, parents and referees.  We miss the social engagement on the field, at team events and in our great community.  The pandemic we are all going through is testing us and consuming us, but we will all remain strong and get through this together.  Today's newsletter is to say hello and to offer a few club updates in a time of great concern, as well as provide a glimpse into what we are prepared for once we're able to return to the field.
We are aware and sensitive to the fact that many of you may not have fall sports programming at the forefront of your priorities at this time. However, we also want to make you aware of our plan for upcoming activities and also inform you about programs that are currently in registration (2020 Recreation).

We want to make these programs available for your consideration at a time that is best for your family. To that end, where appropriate, we have adjusted policies and procedures (e.g. refund policy, registration time frames) to provide you with greater flexibility and peace of mind when deciding to register. Please review specific program policies, guidelines and time frames for further information.

Healthy regards,
WC Surf SC

Competitive Program News & Notes:

Competitive team updates:
All teams are being coached via virtual learning and will continue until we're back on the field.  Weekly curriculum, video training and fun individual skill development will be managed by each team's respective head coach.  Our Director of Coaching and his Age Group Coordinators continue to work hard at building and delivering content and direction.  Through our club's affiliation with Surf Nation, we continue to be supported by all of the Surf club's nation wide and are leveraging the online soccer tool, The Coaching Manual for our coaches and teams.  One of our many goals in this new training environment is to prepare now and be ready to go once we are allowed to return to the field.  

Additional competitive team updates will be sent directly to those teams, team managers and head coaches.

Referee Resources & Education

WCSC Referee and current USSF National Referee, Stephen McGonagle, is now a member of PRO & eligible for assignment as Ass’t Referee to MLS Games! It’s a big step up for Stephen, one of the best young Referees out of the WC Ref Program!  Congratulations Stephen, we are proud of you!

Want to become a referee? check out the Walnut Creek Referee web site - click here.  The fall season is fast approaching and referee certification courses will be offered during the summer.  

There were several changes and modifications to the Laws of the Game recently, for those of you interested, check out these links for interesting reading and to broaden your knowledge of the game.

2019/20 Laws of the Game

Mobile App Laws of the Game

To note: WC Surf SC has programs that are locally, regionally and nationally governed.  The Laws of the Game, and modified rules, are then applied to various age groups in our recreation and competitive programs.  Not all age groups have the exact same Laws of the Game or rule modifications.  Check with your Coach or email us if you have questions.

And be sure to THANK A REF when you are out there this weekend!

Parent Sideline (Education)
Our intention of this section is to offer resources to our parents on methods, ideas, and stories about great ways to be a support while enjoying how your son or daughter plays this beautiful game!  The groups listed have no association with our club, yet we find them informative, helpful, and impactful.
