U13 boys competitive soccer team Sharks 00 Blue, after reaching the California State finals of the Presidents Cup, will be participating in the Region IV Presidents Cup that will take place from June 11 through June 15 at the Morgan Hill Sport Complex in Morgan Hill, CA. This event has teams representing Cal South, Cal North, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Utah, Idaho and Alaska. The Champion of this event will represent Region IV at the National Championship in Greenville, SC from July 11 thru July 13.
This is the first time that a team from Santa Cruz City YSC has had the opportunity to play and represent Santa Cruz at the regional level of competition. Most of the players on this team started playing soccer at the recreational level (U6), and the team has volunteer parents as Coaches and Manager.
Because of the nature and the schedule of the competition, some players have been asked to miss school on Wednesday and Thursday. These are some of the hard choices that go along with high level competition.
SC Jaws 02 White played a hard silver/bronze division of the 2014 spring district cup, and placed a well deserved second place. The entire team was very proud to play, represent and host the tournament.
Santa Cruz City Sharks 02 cultivated success in their first season at 11v11 full field soccer. The boys took second place in Spring league Bronze Bracket with a record of 8-0-2, then closing the season with their first field tournament win in Silver/Bronze CalNorth District Cup with four straight wins.
The Culmination, of course: Pizza!
