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

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.
