Preparation for Competitive Team Tryouts

Happy New Year Santa Cruz City Soccer Families !

German Plaza, our coaching director, will be offering training sessions for U8 and U10 players to prepare them for competitive team tryouts which are coming up in early March.

Clinics will be held at Depot Park in Downtown Santa Cruz. 119 Center St.

Saturday January 10th, and 17th
Girls 2-3:30pm
Boys 3:30-5pm

The trainings will be offered free of charge, no need to register, please just show up, ready to play and learn.

Santa Cruz City competitive teams begin with the U9 age group and are called Sharks for boys, and Jaws for girls. They play a 10 game season in the Fall, 5 games being home in Santa Cruz, 5 being away at locations dependent on the individual team's bracketing. Most teams chose to compete in a few tournaments during the season. 

Competitive teams are appropriate for players who have a passion for the game and are interested at playing at a higher level with similarly motivated teammates.

Winter Futsal

Santa Cruz City YSC is sponsoring weekly futsal pickup games indoors.  The games are perfect for developing ball-control, precision passing, and fast decision making, using a heavier ball on a basketball court.

Coach Hillel Rom has secured the Santa Cruz High gym for small co-ed pick-up futsal groups on Sunday mornings.  Participation is open to all U-8 to U-18 recreational and competitive team players.

Cost will be $75 per player and brackets will be created depending on enrollment. Register online now!
