The Solana Beach Soccer Club is proud to partner with Positive Coaching Alliance ("PCA") to bring a positive culture to youth sports in Solana Beach. The Club recognizes the importance sports can play in providing character developing experiences for our young athletes.
The Club is hosting a PCA workshop for coaches this Saturday (August 25th) to train them to be PCA certified coaches. We are excited about this opportunity and hope "The PCA Way" extends not only to coaches, but also to parents and our players.
A little background on PCA is below.
For more information about PCA, please visit their website (https://www.positivecoach.org/). Here's a link
Positive Coaching Alliance
Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) develops BETTER ATHLETES, BETTER PEOPLE through resources for youth and high school sports coaches, parents, administrators and student-athletes. In addition to 1,500+ free audio-video and printable tips and tools at www.PCADevZone.org, PCA has partnered with roughly 3,500 schools and youth sports organizations nationwide to deliver live group workshops, online courses and books by PCA Founder Jim Thompson that help those involved in youth and high school sports create a positive, character-building youth sports culture.
PCA resources, which have reached more than 8.6 million youth, strive to transform high school and youth sports into a Development Zone® culture, where the goal is to develop Better Athletes, Better People and the following become the prevailing models in youth and high school sports:
PCA gains support from a National Advisory Board, including National Spokesperson and 11-time NBA Champion Coach Phil Jackson, and many other top coaches, athletes, organization leaders and academics who share PCA’s mission.
We highly recommend listening to a TEDx talk by the founder of PCA, Jim Thompson..... here's a link to the TEDx
Registration for the Fall 2018 Season is Open!
The Solana Beach Soccer Club (“SBSC”) provides a youth recreational soccer program for children in kindergarten through 12th grade. The Club was created in 1979 and is a non-profit corporation (501c(3)) based in Solana Beach, CA. Practices and regular season games begin in late summer (August) and run through the week before Thanksgiving. The Club serves about 500 players with the support of our generous sponsors, awesome volunteer coaches and enthusiastic families.
The Club is part of the California State Soccer Association – South (otherwise known as Cal South), which represents member leagues in clubs (recreational and competitive) from San Luis Obispo all the way down to San Diego.
The Club's mailing address is: P.O. Box 409, Solana Beach, CA 92075.
Registration (Players): Registration will open on April 14th! Please click on this Link to our Registration Page for more information and a link to our registration platform.
Registration (Coaches and Team Parents): If you are interested in coaching or being a team parent, please visit the Coaches tab and register.
"Birth Year" (Calendar Year) Registration: U.S. Soccer has mandated (and Cal South has adopted) the change to a birth year / calendar year registration. We made this transition for the Fall 2017 season. This means divisions will (on average) skew a little younger than in the past. For more information, please visit our 'Registration' and 'Rules' pages.

Sports Engine: SBSC uses Sports Engine for player registration and to host our website. The platform will allow each team to have its own team page (free!) in which a team can include its roster, schedule, sponsor logo, upload pictures and more! The platform is also mobile friendly.
We expect Fall 2018 schedules to be ready the last week of August. When they are ready, we will post links here.
SBSC wants to make sure you receive important information throughout the season. We use Constant Contact to send messages. We will use emails provided during registration to initially populate the list for the current year.
