ANAHEIM SURF BU13 TAKE HOME THE TROPHY

B13 Takes Home the Trophy

Surf_BU13
This past weekend, our own Surf BU13 team won their bracket championship in this year’s Anaheim Surf Invitational. The tournament saw them open up with league rival Legends SC. That hard-fought match ended in a 1-1 draw, as Legends scored the equalizer with seven minutes to play. The unfortunate 4-0 loss in the second game, to North Valley SC, put the Surf in a hole heading into their final scheduled match. But the boys rallied for a solid 2-1 win over Inland Empire Surf. That was just enough to get Anaheim into the final, which was a rematch against Legends. Much like the first match, the Surf jumped out to a lead. But also like the first match, Legends tied it up in the second half. 70 minutes of soccer was not enough to decide this one … and neither was the additional 10 minutes of extra time. This championship match went to penalty kicks, where the Surf barely edged out their opponent.
 
Congratulations to the Anaheim Surf BU13 team and coaches Reuben Fonseca, Al Fonseca, and Ryan Wilson on representing the club with a well deserved championship!

id2 Training Camp in California forms foundation for current id2 age groups cycle

Rosters – Boys / Girls | Photos | Videos | Daily log

CHARLESTON, S.C. (March 31, 2015) – A total of 106 players from 66 clubs across the country participated in the id² Training Camp held at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif., March 26-29. This was the first id2 Training Camp of the cycle, targeting boys born in 2002 and girls born in 2001.

Players were tested physically with high-energy training sessions and games, and they were also challenged mentally with off-the-field presentations discussing developmental and tactical strategies.

id2 Program Directors Gerry McKeown (boys) and Rory Dames (girls) facilitated the player selections and curriculum for the id2Training Camp.

Staff coaches leading the camp were a mix of some of the best minds in the country. Coaches for the boys side were: Matt Bernard (Placer United SC), Rene Miramontes (San Diego State University), Ian Mork (NorCal Premier Soccer) and Benjamin Ziemer (NorCal Premier Soccer). Leading the girls were: Erik Bushey (Colorado Rush), Jay Howell (Richmond Strikers), Bob Jenkins (Richmond Strikers), Hideki Nakada (Stanford University), Bobby Puppione (Cincinnati United) and Paula Wilkins (University of Wisconsin).

“It’s not about getting knocked down,” Jenkins told the boys in closing remarks Sunday. “It’s how you get back up, because you will get knocked down.”

Wilkins expressed similar sentiments, telling the girls: “No matter what your journey and experiences are, it’s about the journey. Enjoy your journey.”

U.S. Soccer development coach Tricia Taliaferro worked closely with the girls coaching staff during drills and matches. The former id2 Girls Program associate director also gave a presentation Saturday afternoon about what U.S. Soccer scouts look for in potential youth national team selections.

Taliaferro stressed the importance of being honest with yourself, but not overly hard. “Would you be friends with a person who talks to you the way you talk to yourself?” Taliaferro asked. “Always remember that you’re not a finished product.”

U.S. Soccer scout and UC Irvine women’s soccer head coach Scott Juniper attended a training session to complement Taliaferro’s presence. On a neighboring field, U.S. Soccer’s technical advisor in the Southwest, Todd Saldana, kept a close eye on the boys.

Players received evaluations from their id2 coaches and left camp with tools for personal success and a vision of the potential future for them on the field.

US Club Soccer’s id2 Program provides an opportunity for the country’s elite youth players to be identified and developed, and scouted for inclusion in U.S. Soccer’s national team programs. Player invitations to id2 Training Camps are based on objective scouting and recommendations from id2 directors and a network of scouts throughout the country.

There is no cost to players to be identified for or participate in the id2 Program, an Olympic Development Program open to all players regardless of U.S. Soccer affiliation. For id2 Training Camps, all lodging, meals and training gear are provided at no cost by US Club Soccer and Nike.

The next camp of the current cycle will be held April 13-16 at the WRAL Soccer Center in Raleigh. N.C. Top performers from all four camps, including two in the fall – dates and locations to be announced soon – will be invited to id2 National Selection programming in 2016.

The national selection programming element of the previous cycle for boys born in 2001 wrapped up earlier this month after a10-day trip through Argentina. The 2015 Nike National Training Camp powered by ECNL and id2 will be held this summer, targeting girls born in 2000.

GU9 White Wins Back to Back Tournaments!

IMG_2054

 

We started our preseason tournament schedule with a semi-final appearance in our own Anaheim Surf Cup.  The GU9 White team played extremely well, not allowing a single goal in pool play.  The team went on to play in the semi-finals, and after 50 hard fought minutes the game ended in a 0-0 tie; with New Port Mesa ultimately winning 3-2 on PK’s.  However; since losing in the semi-finals, the team has been on fire!  Capturing back to back tournament championships in the Anaheim FC tournament and the OCP Toyota Classic!  During the current run the team has only allowed 2 goals in 11 tournament games which is an amazing stat!  The team is starting to come together and learning to play smart and hard from start to finish.  We have a great group of players that are hungry to learn and to compete at the highest possible level.  The team is looking forward to our final preseason tournament (Labor Day weekend United Cup) as we prepare to head into league play as a tier 1 team in September.  United Cup here we come!!!

G13W - Surf Cup 2014

The GU13 White team ventured into the hollowed fields of the San Diego Polo Grounds on August 2nd to face the toughest competition of their young careers at the Soccerloco Surf Cup XXXIV.  With ice in their veins, they faced the #1 team in the country for a 7:45am kick-off.  When the final whistle blew, the girls performance was one that they and the club could be proud of, a 0-0 tie.  They went on to tie the #2 ranked team in Cal North and had a hard fought 0-1 loss to the #1 ranked team from Virginia.  Although they didn’t get out of group play, the team showed they could play with ‘ the best of the best’ at Surf Cup.
