Hello and Happy Friday!

Continued good health while navigating through this very challenging time in all of our lives.

We also know things are changing rapidly with the re-opening of the nation, our state and even our county.  Since we first went into shelter in place, our club operations and board continues to work on behalf of our members and prepare for when we are allowed to return to play in a safe, well thought out plan with specific health and safety protocols and clear communication for everyone involved.  Last week's newsletter asked for member volunteers from all of our programs in a newly formed Health & Safety Covid 19 committee.  To date, we've already met three times via zoom in a collaborative and positive group setting.  Our meetings will result in a soon to be released club Health & Safety protocol presented to our membership via email attachment, digital format and web site.  For our players and coaches to return to the field we have to follow the guidelines from the CDC, State, County, City of Walnut Creek and US Club Socccer, along with our unique club guidelines for each field, social distancing, parking lot and related safety factors. 

In addition to Health & Safety is our club's  preparation for the return to play this fall with our recreation(house) league and the select and competitive NorCal Premier seasons.  We are taking a very optimistic and positive approach to our registration and preparation - that's our role and we are here to provide experiences and opportunities for all members of our club.

We have 4 registrations offered right now and listed below.  
Recreation - U6 to U19 recreation in-house soccer league
Fall Select - Registration for tryouts of U10, U12, U14, U16* - semi competitive level of play
Competitive - Transition team registration (2019/20 team/player only)
Competitive - Tryouts, Open Training and Evaluation registration (outside player tryouts, in club open tryouts and U8 evaluations).

Healthy regards,
WC Surf SC

Select Program News and Notes:
Fall Select 2020 -
Due to the county Shelter in Place (SIP), we had to cancel the May scheduled tryouts.  Our planning for the Select program is ongoing and hope the return to play this fall will coincide with our recreation and competitive programs too.  Since Select teams are formed by the tryout process, we are hopeful for a July tryout for the U10, U12, U14 and U16 age groups.  We suggest players that have interest in our Select program register HERE so we have your contact information and can communicate to you directly with updates.  If you've already registered for Fall Select, no need to register again.  

Parents - if you're interested in coaching a select team, we encourage you to reach out to our Select Coordinator, Mike Lattanzi at for more information.

Competitive Program News & Notes:

Competitive 2019/20 team updates:
All 2019/20 players were sent our Team/Player Transition Plan earlier last week.  More detailed information regarding this plan can be viewed on our web site HERE.  We are very sensitive to the Covid19 situation and the unlikelihood of being able to host traditional tryouts for team selections.  Thus, we put together a plan that focuses on players first, for our expected return to play after months of shelter in place.  Step 1 registration deadline for all CURRENT players is May 31st.
