Recreation Program News and Notes:

Summer/Fall Soccer Camps - 
In lieu of the fall season being canceled, we are offering late summer/fall soccer camps for recreation players.  These camps are under strict guidelines provided by the Contra Costa County Health Services, City of Walnut Creek Parks and our Club.  Camps are for recreation players only and will focus on FUN, Skill Development and Love of the Game.

Camp #3 is on going and enjoying great weather, learning soccer skills and having fun!

Camp #4 Sold Out - For those registered, please note the field change.  Camp #4 November 2nd to November 19th will be held at Heather Farm Field #4.  More Camp #4 information, including this field change, will be updated via a direct email early next week.

Winter Recreation Camps and Clinics - 
We will be offering winter recreation soccer camps starting in December and through February '21.  Look for details soon as we expect the camp sessions to be in high demand with limited cohort space available.  Camps will include an exclusive High School age group to further assist our teenage players preparing for their High School season.  We will also be offering camps and clinics for our youngest soccer players too!

Competitive Program News & Notes:


Coach Coop, our club's Director of Coaching has been making the rounds to our nearly 40 competitive teams and competing in the famous "Cross Bar Challenge".  Let's just say Coop is a familiar face now at the local Slurpee shop and a few of the winning teams are shown below with their trophies!

Surf Select NorCal ID Camp was well represented by close to 50 players on our 2005 to 2010 age groups for boys and girls.  Surf Select is a program that Surf Nation offers to all Surf affiliates like our club exclusively.  The program in it's structure is similar to ODP or PDP, provides for regional player identification camps and selection for future showcase, including national and international trips.

Overall, our competitive teams continue to put in the effort during training, adopting to the Covid-19 health & safety conditions, and build on their teams identity and player development.  Thanks to our coaching staff as well, preparing for non-contact training sessions is challenging and they are doing a great job!

ALL players are reminded to wear your mask to and from training.

At all competitive training sessions, our "Return to Play" signage is placed at the entrance/exit of the fields to remind and enforce the expectations of safety and proper guidelines.  Coaches have also been outfitted with proper PPE, and trained in our specific safety guidelines.  Thank you to all of the players, parents and coaches for their commitment to our club's return to play protocols.
