Fall Rec Soccer Update

Hello Cardiff Soccer Families,

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many unforeseen challenges and impacted so many aspects of our lives from work, school, sports and everything in between. In much the same way as school looks different this fall, our recreational soccer season will look different as well. Our recreational soccer gaming season typically runs from September to November, with practices beginning toward mid-late August. Due to city, county and state restrictions, we are currently unable to return to play in full games/competitions. Furthermore, our governing bodies, Cal South and Presidio Soccer, have moved back the fall season start date to October 3. Unfortunately, these changes drastically impact our fall recreational season, and it is with a very heavy heart that we have decided to cancel the Recreational Gaming Season this fall.

In an effort to provide an alternative soccer training opportunity to our recreational players, Cardiff Soccer is happy to announce that we will offer Recreational Training Sessions with professional coaches in a safe COVID-19 approved format. Recreational players and families will be offered a series of Recreational Training Sessions to help fill the void of our 2020 gaming season and get the kids back on the field. The Recreational Training sessions will consist of four 1.5 hour sessions, each aimed to introduce and develop the key fundamentals of soccer through fun-filled activities, competitions and games. Every participant will take home a Cardiff Soccer T-Shirt and will have the opportunity to win giveaways throughout the duration of the program. The training sessions will be open to Recreational players only and are a great way to get back on the field to improve your soccer skills, socialize, meet new friends and be active!

Ray Reza, Senior Cardiff Mustangs Competitive Coach, along with the help of Competitive coach Juan Suarez, a long time fixture in the Cardiff community and additional Cardiff Mustang Coaches, will be conducting the Recreational Training Sessions during the month of September. Participation will be limited due to staffing, COVID restrictions and field space. However, since you have already registered for the Fall Recreational Season, we are giving you the first opportunity to register and have priority to participate in this great program.

Registration will automatically close once sessions hit the maximum number of players allowed. Thank you for your understanding. Please contact recreational@cardiffsoccer.org with any questions.

Finally, for your equipment needs, Dicks Sporting Goods has been gracious enough to sponsor a 20% off Cardiff Soccer shopping weekend this Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 29th and 30th.

We hope to see you out on the fields in September, and back with us next fall season.

Thank You,

Cardiff Soccer

Spring Soccer Camp

Due to the popularity of our Holiday Camp, we have added a Spring Soccer Camp!

The Soccer Institute and Cardiff Mustangs have put together another camp for soccer players born 2010-2001 to work on technical, tactical, game awareness, and decision making skills in a fast-paced, engaging program. This camp is a great way to keep active and work on skills during the spring break, prepare for olders’ tryouts, or get ready as teams begin ramping up their practice for the year.

This camp is open to competitive players from any club or competitive level.  Players will be coached 1 to 1 and/or in small groups based on age and ability. Players will utilize the latest PlayerMaker technology to track technical and physical work during the camp.

Campers should bring water, a snack, and sunscreen.

Thanks for a Great Year of Camps and Clinics

The Cardiff Mustangs would like to thank all of our competitive and recreational coaches for the time and effort they put into our camps and clinics for 2015. From futsal to Free Fridays to our summer camps, players of all ages and levels had the opportunity to learn and develop their skills in a fun and engaging environment. This year, more Mustang, recreational Cardiff soccer, and other club players attended the trainings than ever before. We look forward to seeing everyone on the pitch again next year!
