About the Turkey Tournament
The Turkey Tournament is a fun filled 2 to 3 day tournament that takes place over the Thanksgiving Holiday (beginning Friday). The location of the tournament is to be determined, but is usually no more than one hour away. Teams will practice once or twice a week for 2 to 3 weeks prior to the tournament. The cost is approximately $40 + uniform fee (financial assistance is available for those who qualify).
About Spring Soccer
The All Star team is by invitation and is designed for those players who have been recognized to play with above average skills and want a more competitive soccer experience. Candidates are recommended by division coaches, selected by All Star coaches and DCs under the guidance of committee members, and approved by the board. The All Star team competes in the area All Star playoffs in late January. Teams may advance to the Sectionals and Western States Championships. All Star teams will participate in Locomotion if desired and will then compete in other tournaments and leagues throughout the spring. Schedules will be decided by the coach and parents.
The Spring season runs from mid-January to early June with up to two practices per week and usually includes 3-4 tournaments, which take place over an entire weekend. Some teams play in a “Spring League” which will have games every weekend for 6-8 weeks. On average, half of the tournaments will require commuting to various locations in the southern California area. The cost for the Spring season is usually around +$250 which includes up to four tournaments, but not uniforms and travel expenses such as hotel. Financial assistance is available.
Please note that the Spring Select/All Star programs are competitive, and due to practice space and schedule limitations, not all players will make a team.
