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 FC Heat Elite teams were off to a flying start to open our 2017 tournament season with wins and second place achievements at numerous venues.rob


To date this year we have 12 Championships and 5 Runners-Up, not to mention that one of those Championships is the Presidents State Cup won by Rob Parker’s G1999 Blue team. Our youngest boys team, Paulo Espinoza’s B2010 Blue team bought home the Memorial Day Super Cup, which just demonstrates our consistency from young to old, and both boys and girls.

I attended the State Cup end-of-season party that Rob Parker organized to thank his girls for a wonderful season.


Rob did a great job recognizing each of his players and thanking them for such a great contribution especially during their State Cup campaign. 


He presented each of his girls with a red rose to mark the occasion.




Currently we are fielding 44 Competitive teams for the 2017/2018 season in various age groups both boys and girls. Some teams still need a few experienced players, so if you know of anyone who loves the sport and has the skill to play competitive soccer, please contact the coaches below:


Girls born in 2008, please contact Daniel Barbosa

Boys born in 2008 and 2002, please contact Alvaro Melgoza

Boys born in 2001, please contact Albert Naverrete

Our inaugural free College Workshop was an instant success with over 40 people attending. The workshop covered mainly the financial aspects of the college application, and ways in which to lawfully take advantage of the rules and regulations that apply.


The class was taught by Sylvia Caruthers of Ducerus who has an excellent staff especially when you consider their background. Indeed one of her assistants spent many years working for the IRS, which is why Sylvia is so well versed with the meticulous way in which applications have to be completed in order to gain an advantage for your student. Not to mention the ways and means in which a family can and is expected to pay.


The workshop audience consisted of many people from different walks of life, from professionals to blue collar workers and their children.


This was not a workshop about scholarships and how to get one, but more of a grass roots type seminar that spoke the truth about such vehicles, which in turn opened the eyes of many attendees.


It became obvious after just a few minutes that academics are the most important aspect when a student is applying for college, whether they are able to get a scholarship or not. If a player is chosen by a college for their talent in soccer, they will not be playing at all if their GPA is not within the required parameters.


Follow me and my family on our journey as we attempt to put our children into the college of their choice. We have taken advantage of the free consultation with Sylvia, who advised us to make some changes in the way we plan for this journey.


The next installment on this will be in the July Newsletter.

Recreational Fall Soccer Tryouts  are upon us once again as we prepare for the upcoming season. Recreational soccer, for those who don’t know, is a way in which to introduce your child to this wonderful sport which promotes health, fitness and sportsmanship in a happy and fun environment. Often it is this first step into the sport that excites our players and instills within them a passion and yearning to take the game further. This is where we all start, players and coaches together with the support of parents and families.

This season CONCUSSION AWARENESS is going to play a big part in the way we treat on field injuries, especially blows to the head and neck. Every player, parent, coach and manager should be made aware of the consequences involved when it comes to these type of injuries.


Our governing body CalSouth has made it mandatory for every parent who has a child playing soccer in California to acknowledge and sign that they thoroughly understand the subject of CONCUSSION.


Please click here for more information and to go through the process.
