|Hello Escondido Soccer Club and FC Heat families,
|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.
Sylvia 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.
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.

OPENING DAY CELEBRATIONS…
Our Opening Night Celebrations was a massive success with close to a thousand people attending. This was open to our Recreational and our Competitive personnel and teams and families and friends.
A lot of money was made for our teams through food and ware stalls manned by players and families. All money collected will benefit those teams.
This was the first year we had live entertainment with DJ CRIZ and an adults only beer and wine area. Our volunteers also provided baby-sitting and manned our jumpees and fun areas. Thank you to all those who volunteered and made this event a true success!
