A Message from Executive Director, Kevin Crow

The spring season is upon us and it's exciting to see the kids returning to the fields for training and games and the excitement on their face! Our U8-13's have returned from the winter break and for the most part have their fall teams have been reunited to play spring while they wait for the May tryouts, which begin Saturday, May 12th.

The U14-19's have wrapped up either their winter training or high school seasons and are now preparing for their spring league and NorCal State Cup. Each year, for the past 6 years, we have provided our U14 competitive players an opportunity to travel abroad.. .read more

An Important Note from NorCal's Board of Directors

Hello,

Merriam - Webster Dictionary defines Sportsmanship as:

Conduct (such as fairness, respect for one's opponent, and graciousness in winning or losing) becoming to one participating in a sport.

While we absolutely encourage everyone to give their best effort trying to win, we also believe a sense of soccer fellowship should be maintained at all times, among opponents, opposing fans, and referees. Treat each other with courtesy; remember your opponents are, like you, fans of the game only in a different uniform, playing for a different club, supporting a different team, or in the case of referees, with a different role to play.

Whatever part you play, be a role model. Set an example. Your positive example is incredibly valuable to those who witness it!

The rules must be respected as they maintain a player's health and safety, provide everyone a fair chance to win each match, and provide necessary checks and balances in a game full of emotions.

Referees must be respected and treated properly; without them our games cannot be played. Remember they are sons and daughters, fathers and mothers, grandmothers and grandfathers. They are our fellow soccer fans and they deserve our patience. Our praise, respect and admiration should be shown to them for taking on what is often a thankless task.

Finally, respect the game! Soccer, futebol, fussball, football, whatever you may call it, is the greatest sport in the world - for it to continue to grow and remain healthy in our country it absolutely needs us to respect... its fields, its players, its fans, its referees and its coaches.

Thank you very much,

NorCal Board of Directors
