His team was the only undefeated D1 team in the country tying their quarterfinal NCAA playoff but not advancing in penalty kicks. We also have Sissi, an Asst. Coach at Solano College, and Kai Edwards, Asst. Coach at Cal Berkeley, women's team. Here's a link to the local Bay Area college teams for easy reference.

Referee Program
American sports has rules in baseball, football, basketball and many other sports.  But did you know the soccer world wide goes by the term "Laws of the Game"?  The sport of soccer, world wide, is governed by FIFA which stands for Fédération Internationale de Football Association. In English, the translation is: International Federation of Association Football.  Within the Laws of the Game, there's another association that governs how the game is managed by the referees, they are called The International Football Association Board (IFAB).  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!
