Hello Escondido Soccer Club and FC Heat families,


In this edition of the newsletter you will find quite a lot of information that you may need to review more closely. All of this is available on our Websites: and

August proved to be a very eventful month for Escondido Soccer Club and FC Heat. Along with our return to Ryan Park came the start of our Recreational warm-up season, played for the fun and the spirit of the game. Rec coaches are doing an excellent job of teaching these players the basic techniques, which shows on the faces of every player out there.
Our FC Heat Competitive teams had another record month for tournament wins and final appearances (see below). This is going to be an excellent year for us. Word is out nowadays that FC Heat are here to compete as demonstrated in the Oceanside SoCal Cup, where five of our teams competed and made all of their respective finals with four of them winning outright. We have gold teams in the Boys 2000 and 2001 divisions who are winning most of their gold tournaments, both here and up in Orange County. You can always tell when one of our teams is doing exceptionally well as our players from these teams get chased by other clubs. I am forever calling DOC’s to tell them ‘hands-off!’
Our Competitive teams started our new fitness and awareness program with Rehab United this month, which is proving to be a great success. Each team will see the professional fitness coaches 3 or more times in these next 5 weeks of our 8 week program. I was really impressed, by the way, in which the exercises were explained and the needed corrections that were made to some individual players. It was plain to see which of our players would be prone to injuries in certain areas. Knees and ankles are always suspect, especially with our older girls.
Rehab United also provided us with nutritional information so that we, the parents of our athletes, can see where we need correction in this area. As Bjorn, the Head Coach from Rehab said, “You can have the best Maserati in the world complete with a fantastic engine, but you will see zero performance if you put in the bad fuel.”
Below is our first installment of the Rehab Nutritional plan for FC Heat & Escondido Soccer Club. It was great to see so many families listening to the nutritional talks that the Rehab coaches did. It shows that together as, parents, coaches and players, we can all change the way our athletes eat and keep their injuries to a minimum.
Opening Day, Saturday, September 10, 2016 is fast approaching where Ryan Park is officially open and our clubs and teams start their league games. This is always a fun event with Jumpees, food and events for all ages.

Escondido Soccer Club is excited to announce a new Goalkeeper Clinic for Rec players! Two of our super-star FC Heat Goalkeepers, Cole Carter and Bo Sparks, will be heading up the clinic. They will be co-coaching with Cole responsible for the Older Group and Bo responsible for the Youngers.
Cole Carter is 17 years old and currently plays on the Varsity soccer team at Rancho Bernardo High School, where he is a senior. 75% of his high school games were clean sheets! He’s been a goalkeeper since 2009, playing for FC Heat, San Diego Soccer Club and San Diego Surf. Cole also has a USSF “F” Coaching License.
Bo Sparks is 12 years old and currently plays on the BU14 FC Heat Wilkes team. He’s been a goalkeeper since 2010 and was invited to join the professional club’s academy at FK Austria Wien! Bo ran a small keeper’s clinic for the rec BU12 division last season.
The clinic will be held at Ryan Park field 1 on Thursdays, 5-6 for birth years 2003 and younger, 6-7 for birth years 2002 and older. Clinics start 8/25/16.

We are also still looking for a goalkeeper for our B2001 Black team…

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Wright family after their son Ryan broke his ankle in 3 places at practice in the last week of August. Tracy is a board member always helping other people – now might be a good time to reach out and help this family.
