SEPTEMBER NEWSLETTER 2018

 

  

SEPTEMBER NEWS & EVENTS…

 

September is a very important month for us especially in our Competitive Department. It is the month when we start all of our competitive games in their respective divisions. We play from now until around December time, when we then prepare for State and National Cup. Our Recreational teams also start their league this month.

 

We are also launching our College Workshops this month, starting on Thursday, September 6th at 6.30 pm at the Boys & Girls Club on Woodward Avenue in Escondido. This seminar will be open to all teams both competitive and recreational, their players and families in the 2003 birth year age group and older only. The workshop will be given by Sylvia Caruthers who has worked closely with our Director of College and Career Readiness, Denis Sweeney.

 

With Denis’ help Escondido Soccer Club, unlike any other soccer club, is taking a slightly different approach to college preparation, by concentrating more on the academic approach rather than the athletic approach. Let’s face it, if your child is not academically prepared first and foremost then they would not be playing soccer anyway. This is our first workshop with concentration on the financial aspect of the college applications and process, and will touch on all aspects of college application awareness.

 

sylviaSylvia began her career in education in 1996 at a local school district. She has worked closely with students and administrators throughout her career and understands the importance of working in conjunction with school counselors, and she has seen firsthand the limitations that they face. She can pick up where they legally cannot, due to liability issues, contract or district policy.

 

She had melded her background in education with SoCal College Planning and has successfully helped families save money while going to their dream school. Her personal goals are to provide guidance to families of all incomes and backgrounds. Her PTA and high school sports workshops have helped her meet this goal and are one of the many ways she gives back to the community.
Sylvia studied Italian and Social Studies in Rome at Scuola Leonardo de Vinci (the school made famous by Elizabeth Gilbert’s book; Eat, Pray, Love) and continues to practice Italian on her chickens and rescue Pomeranian.

 

Although Sylvia makes her living from her profession, none of her products and services will be talked about during the workshop. This seminar is solely for informational purposes only for Escondido Soccer Club and FC Heat.

 

If indeed you do need more information about her services you can go to her Website at SOCAL COLLEGE PLANNING.

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: FCHeat.org and EscondidoSoccerClub.com.

From the Editor…
  
Here we go…Here we go…Here we go!
In the time I have worked for Escondido Soccer Club and FC Heat Elite, I have rubbed shoulders with many people from all walks of life. One of the most frequently asked questions is…
What are your goals for the future of this club?
 
We are a non-profit organization that is run mostly by volunteers. We appoint a board of directors who then become the voice for all of our members. We have short term goals and we have long term goals, which are established through ideas and innovation and acted upon collectively by our members, volunteers and paid staff.
Our mission statement dates back many years and specifically talks about soccer and a player’s development within the game. A portion reads so:
“Our coaches will teach good sportsmanship, team work, player education, development and a passion for the game. We believe through coaching and competition, most players will reach their full potential.
Soccer is the ultimate team sport, each player has a role to play, we need to be able to teach that role through the tactical side of the game, and also to help them learn the technical skills to allow them to progress to a higher level.
Our league is fully committed to help develop each player, as an individual and team player and we will strive to make that happen.”
 
In over forty years of teaching young players this wonderful game, times have changed. And so have we.
Last week I had the good fortune to interview our Escondido City Mayor, Mr. Sam Abed and I was honored and proud to listen to what our club means to him, our city and its population in general. We have made and continue to make a difference, keeping children off of the street and away from trouble while also teaching them some of the most important fundamental lessons in life.
Moving forward as a club, we are getting stronger. On the soccer side, we are playing in higher divisions, winning and appearing in more competitions and turning out good quality players. But that’s just where we start. Soccer to us is just a conduit, a common interest shared by our players, their families and our coaches and managers. Our ultimate goal is to mold each and every one of our players into a terrific human being. We are just using this wonderful game as a means to get to where we want to go.
We are approximately 60% Hispanic as is the City of Escondido. Many of our player’s families have never seen one of their offspring attend college or move onto a higher level of education. We believe that further education is imperative to improve one’s quality of life. We also believe that openly accepting and sharing cultural diversity is the first step in the foundation of our platform.
In a nutshell here are some of the goals we have and how we are advancing as we move forward in time:
  • We are building a new Website that will feature a one-stop-shop to everything we offer as a club. From recreational to competitive to tournaments and education and beyond. This is now in the preliminary stage and will take around 7 months to complete. Our newsletter and news blasts will be more professional and refined with more sharper images and lead-ins to stories and articles without overfilling your mail box.
  • Our coaches and coaching staff will improve in the next few years with better guidance, evaluations, licensing and observance. As we have grown in quality, we need to maintain and indeed improve in this area.
  • Our fields have considerably improved over the last several months and we have gained permission to expand in this area. Our goals are to light more fields, improve the surface and expand the top fields.
  • Equipment is being upgraded such as goals, a first aid golf cart, maintenance equipment and our facilities, such as the snack bar will also see improvements.
  • Sponsorship, grants and other monetary support has greatly improved. We are currently working with a number of organizations who have expressed interest in working closely with us. The Asian American Affairs Association and our Chinese friends are enthusiastic about re-energizing our cultural exchange program, whereby teams will visit us and we will visit them. An international tournament is planned for early next year at Ryan Park, backed by their generous support. We have been issued at least one grant for improvements with hopefully more to follow.
  • Personnel changes and the appointment of certain committees are making our jobs a little easier. In the words of our President, Jessica Escobedo, “It takes a village!” And it certainly does, as now more and more volunteers are actively getting involved. Indeed our Opening Day was planned and conceived by a committee of moms who shared ideas to give everyone a memorable and happy time.
  • Our approach to the success of our players is going to improve. We are not just concerned about their development as soccer players, we are more concerned about their development as decent human beings in the holistic sense. We plan to consider our players academic level and their personal goals as well as family goals for their future. Peter Minkhoff our Director of Competitive stated this clearly at one of our recent coaches meetings when he said, “We should not be asking our players ‘Are you going to college?’ We should be asking them, ‘What college are you going to?'”
As you all know, everything is a challenge and anything in life worth having is worth working for. We are always working hard behind the scenes in order to improve the life and the future for your children and to allow them to compete and take part in our programs at a reasonable cost. If we are improving and adding new programs while breaking even, then we are on the right track.
If you feel that you are equipped to help in any way possible with any of our committees or if you have any suggestions, please contact one of our directors below.
Thank you so much!

COACH O STILL NEEDS YOUR HELP
A few years ago I was introduced to Zhang Ouying. She is a highly regarded coach coach for SDSC and has been coaching in the US for many years. Prior to our China trip she called me and offered advice. We struck up a great friendship and she offered to put on clinics for our girls program in the not too distant future.
In case you didn’t know Coach O lives locally and played both in the World Cup final and in the Olympics. She is a highly accredited coach who has helped many players achieve their dreams.
Unfortunately Coach O recently had some bad news and she now needs our help.
Here is her story…

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: FCHeat.org and EscondidoSoccerClub.com.

YOUNGER TRYOUTS THIS WEEK!
Our younger tryouts had to be rescheduled from last week until this coming week due to rain.
Although Ryan Park drains off water real well, it has really suffered this winter with the rain causing flooding on most of the fields. We were supposed to host State Cup this coming weekend, but it was canceled for this very reason. Hopefully, with no more rain in the forecast for the coming week or so, we should be okay for tryouts.
All players 2003 and younger have to attend tryouts in order to be considered for selection on one of our teams for 2017. With the great success FC Heat Elite has achieved last season, we expect there to be a lot of players trying out in these younger age groups. And in addition, we certainly welcome all of our Recreational and All-Stars players to attend these tryouts.
This is the tentative list of coaches and teams for younger tryouts, which lists the teams in order of hierarchy (in brackets, A, B etc.) – teams and coaches can change depending on the amount of players showing up at tryouts.
Coaches of the A team will have 48 hours with the list of players in order to select their team, then the list of players will get passed on to the next team in order (B). Coaches will only have priority selection only if their current players attend tryouts, if their players do not attend, then the next team will have priority selection.
As always, players and parents will have the first right of refusal, to play or not to play for that particular team, but a place cannot be guaranteed on another team should they choose not to accept that initial place offering.
Based on the numbers at tryouts we can and will add coaches and teams where needed, but only if the higher numbers call for this to happen.

SEPTEMBER NEWSLETTER & LATEST NEWS

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: FCHeat.org and EscondidoSoccerClub.com.

LATEST NEWS
Recreational Fall Soccer League is closing in on the end of the season, and what a season it was. Approximately 600 children of all ages experiencing a great season of soccer for fun,  taught by conscientious coaches. Teams worked hard for their results while cheered on enthusiastically by their family members on the sidelines.
Recreational soccer is the first rung on the ladder of learning the sport, with the top rung being highly competitive soccer – FC Heat Elite teams. Next in line though is selection for the Recreational All-Stars, where coaches select a small number of players who have showed a natural flair for the game, to go on and compete for the chance to make an Escondido All-Star team.
All-Star teams from Escondido Soccer Club then represent our club and the city in club tournaments throughout San Diego. This is indeed a great honor for those players selected to tryout and especially for those who make the team. All-Star season is one of my favorite times of the year, as it gives us competitive coaches a chance to see the ‘cream of the crop,’ so to speak. These players may then get the chance to move on to competitive soccer next season.
Competitive Soccer
 
Having already surpassed our Championship record for last season in tournaments, our competitive teams are well on their way to making a mark in their respective divisions. As you can see below, many of our 41 teams are in the top 5 and others are fighting their way up. This is going to be a great season for FC Heat Elite teams.

FC HEAT ELITE JERSEY SPONSORSHIP
FC Heat Elite is proud to announce our Jersey Sponsorship Program, which we hope to have in place by the start of next season.
For the first time, we are interested in working with a partner who would like their logo and/or name on the front of our competitive team shirts.
What an exciting prospect that is for a potential company or corporation who would share in our consistent positive exposure.
We started our climb to the top in 2014 when we won 40 tournaments and appeared in 30 more finals. In 2015, we won 59 Championships and finished as Runners-Up in 43 more, and in the same season, the majority of our teams finished in the top 5 of their respective divisions, with one of our girls teams appearing in the final of the State Cup. And to date this year, we have already surpassed all those milestones, appearing in 103 finals with 61 Championships and 42 Runners-Up.
Not only have we represented the club, Escondido and California on our trip to China, but we have appeared in more publications this year than ever before.
These are exciting times for FC Heat Elite, so if you know of a company who is interested in this unique opportunity please let us know.
Remember that we are a non-profit organization, so any investment in this area could potentially be a tax deduction.
E-mail Steve or Peter if you or someone you know may be interested in this wonderful opportunity.

OTHER NEWS
RYAN PARK NEWS
 
Please be advised that Ryan Park will now only be closed for wet weather to protect the fields or when it is closed by the city.
 
During the past few seasons, we have closed the fields for excessive Heat on the advise of Dr. Peter Minkoff. However, it is now up to the individual coaches and the individual players families on whether or not they would like to practice in excessive heat.
 
There are no mandatory practices when the heat index crosses the 100 degree line. But please think responsibly and be very cautious when it gets that hot.
 
Also, on practice nights, practice finishes promptly at 8 pm and lights go out at 8.15 pm. This is when gates get locked, so please make sure your child is picked up prior to 8.15 pm as coaches and directors stay behind until every child has a ride – This is an important safety and courtesy issue – Thank You.

AUGUST NEWSLETTER & LATEST NEWS

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: FCHeat.org and EscondidoSoccerClub.com.

LATEST NEWS
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!’
55 – CHAMPIONSHIPS
38 – RUNNERS-UP
93 – FINALS
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.

JULY NEWSLETTER & LATEST NEWS

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: FCHeat.org and EscondidoSoccerClub.com.

LATEST NEWS
Our ‘Meet & Greet’ hosted by Dick’s Sporting Goods in Escondido was a huge success for our Recreational Fall Teams. It was a chance for parents and players to meet their coaches and also to listen to their plans for the coming season.
The staff at Dick’s were very courteous and helpful and we feel that this is going to be a great relationship for everyone as we move forward.
Thank you for all who showed up and helped, none of this would be possible without volunteers like yourselves.
If you are indeed interested in coaching at the Recreational level, please contact Jessica Escobedo.
For coaches already established with teams who need a little help putting together practice lesson plans, you can access our www.HeatCoaching.com Website and/or talk to one of our FC Heat coaches and ask for help, as we are all here to help each other.

The Dave Shelton Memorial Cup for 2016 was a fantastic experience for all who took part and watched the games. The amount of teams and talent who
Issac Shelton holding the trophy
took part was bigger this year than I can ever remember, with many games starting on Friday evening to compensate for time and field space.
For those of you who don’t know who Dave Shelton was, here is a little eye opener…
Dave was a long time resident of Escondido and served many years on the NCYSA board in many different positions. He was instrumental in the development of all of our soccer programs, including the Mayors Cup tournament.
Dave enjoyed helping the youth of Escondido and continued coaching long after his own children had grown. Dave devoted over twenty years of his life to these young soccer players. He had a wonderful relationship with all of the kids, many of whom he sponsored out of his own pocket as their needs arose. He truly realized the value and purity of athletic competition in youth sports, and took great pride in the opportunity to coach alongside his son Josh. Jed his other son, was a little young then but was coached by Dave. Both can now be seen roaming the fields at Ryan Park and other locations.. Josh is a top level referee, coaching college games and Jed is helping coach in our Competitive division for the B2006 Black team, assisting Jimmy Fernandez. Jimmy and Jed were teammates for coach Dave Shelton, along with Leo Escobedo, who is the brother of Jessica, who now runs and organizes the Dave Shelton tournament.
In 1966 Dave and his wife Linda were recognized by California Youth Soccer Association (CYSA) for their many years of volunteerism dedicated to the young soccer players in their community. They were awarded the CYSA Lifetime Honorees Award for their outstanding contributions to youth soccer in our district.
Dave and Linda have 4 grandchildren Jonah, aged 10 (B2006 Black team), Issaac, aged 8 (B2008 Black team), Natalie, aged 12 and Gwen, aged 9, who both are thinking of joining the Heat program soon. Linda, Dave’s wife and grandma is still very active watching her grandchildren at Ryan Park.
Regrettably on October 28th, 1999, we lost Dave Shelton, one of the great founding father’s of youth soccer in our city, but his name and legacy will live on forever. Most of all the young soccer players that play in Escondido today may never know who Dave Shelton was, but as they grace the fields of Ryan Park, Dave will be looking down with pride, seeing what was always his pride and joy, “kids playing and enjoying soccer”.
When his grandson Isaac held the Dave Shelton Winner’s trophy aloft in the Winners Circle this year, he looked at the inscription and said, “Hey that’s my granddad!”
You bet it is son!
*     *     *
On August 8th 2016, we return to Ryan Park. Many of you are breathing a big sigh of relief, knowing that all of our teams and players will be in one place every practice day. We should take the time to think about what the last 3 months have been like, not having the luxury of our own fields. Other clubs deal with this problem year round. FC Heat and Escondido Soccer Club are very fortunate to be able to play at Ryan Park, therefore we should take very good care of the place. By not using goal mouths (six yard boxes) on the field, and not climbing on equipment and goals, and by picking up trash when we are done, we are showing a great example to our players and also prolonging the great condition that Ryan Park will be in when we return.
Our first week back, we will be hosting our Competitive Heat Camps. This is where our players and parents get to meet all of the coaches at FC Heat, the competitive arm of our non-profit organization. This is indeed free to all players – see dates and times below. Then on Friday, August 12 we will host Super Fun-Raising Friday, where all teams can man their sales stalls and sell products in order to raise funds for their particular teams. Don’t be left out in the cold, it is best to get organized now. To see what other teams are selling, contact Tracy Wright. Players will also get a chance to play a select coaches team just for fun.
Monday through Thursday, Heat teams only, Friday is open to all.
The following week, August 15th, our teams practice sessions will be coached by Rehab United’s professional coaches. These include current professional soccer players now playing for teams like Albion pros. Again there is no charge for this and your regular team coach will be taking part. These sessions will teach our players proper warm-ups, fitness, match preparedness, nutrition, speed, agility and injury prevention, just to name a few. We are still working on a schedule for this and will release it via e-mail once it is established. Please check with your coach and manager.

LATEST NEWS
June proved to be a very busy month for soccer both with Escondido Soccer Club and FC Heat. Midway through the month we had our Recreational sign-ups, tryouts, and camps, hosted by FC Heat coaches. Currently we have close to 600 players signed up for our Fall Rec Season, which will mean exciting soccer for all involved. It was great for us to see so many talented players trying out this year, all the way from the very young ones to the teenagers. This year we are hoping to introduce a junior team of goalkeeping coaches to teach our recreational goalkeepers when we return to Ryan Park
June was also a very good month for our FC Heat Competitive Teams who secured more tournament wins and finals, bringing our grand total to 23 Championships and 20 Runners-up – please see photographs below. This is a true testament to the strength of our teams and coaches who have been working together since tryouts in February. All of this hard work pays off.
