ICYMI: G2002 Pacific SC South Bay is National Premier League (NPL) bound & looking for a few talented players to join them in the Spring

Congratulations to PSC South Bay G2002 in the U15 age group for making National Premier League (NPL) for the 2017 season. Our team is breaking into the NPL soccer scene.

The Southern California NPL serves as the National Premier Leagues (NPL) Division of the SouthCal Premier League. The SouthCal NPL Division is one of 19 leagues across the United States that are part of the NPL, which has been created to provide a national developmental platform with the highest level of competition in given geographic areas, and to elevate and change the competitive youth soccer landscape based upon fundamental principles in US Club Soccer’s 10-year vision. The champions of each NPL (including the SouthCal NPL) are awarded a spot in the US Club NPL National Finals.

This team is a five time league champion that has moved up the ranks. They won back to back Presidio League Championship as well as back to back San Diego Development Academy (SDDA) Championships. Fresh off their Coast Soccer League (CSL) Championship in the Silver Elite South bracket, our highly talented G2002 team has been accepted to participate in the prestige Southern California National Premier League and is seeking a few more talented players for its 2017 Spring Season. If you would like more information, or to schedule a tryout at a scheduled training session, please contact Coach Polo Aviles at (858) 336-8529 or email Coach Polo at sbmfcpoloaviles@gmail.com. This team has an impressive track record of success, including reaching the finals of the State Cup President’s Division in 2015 as a U13G team. The team finished first in 2016 CSL Silver Elite South U15G, Flight 1 U14G of the SDDA in Fall 2015, after winning first in Flight 2 SDDA in Fall 2014. Coach Polo is an experienced teacher of the game, someone who believes in player development and implements strategies necessary to meaningfully carry it out.

South Bay Matrix FC Partners with Pacific Soccer Club

South Bay Matrix FC is proud to announce a collaboration with Pacific Soccer Club (PSC) that will enable South Bay’s highest caliber teams to participate in Coast Soccer League. Pacific Soccer Club (PSC) is the AYSO Competitive Club Soccer program for Orange and Los Angeles counties. PSC has boys and girls teams that compete in Coast Soccer League. Last season, they had 35 teams competing in either Bronze, Silver or Silver Elite brackets.

“This is a huge step forward for our program,” said South Bay Matrix Executive Director Anthony Millican. “This partnership with our sister club in Orange and LA counties opens doors we never thought possible. We have teams that have been successful in San Diego, and now our best teams will have the opportunity to compete with the best in Coast Soccer League.”

Since PSC was founded 16 years ago as part of a third, elite Club-style tier to the AYSO organization, it has grown to involve more than 500 boys and girls in Southern California playing on 35 teams from San Clemente to East Los Angeles. With the addition of South Bay Matrix, PSC will now extend its program to south San Diego.

SB Matrix FC will work closely with Pacific Soccer Club’s directors and coaching staff in implementing PSC’s training plan to enhance the development of players’ skills and technical abilities. The partnership will start with a single team: the newly formed Pacific SC South Bay G2002 team, which will have immediate access to the TAGA GOALKEEPER TRAINING ACADEMY as well as entrance to CSL League Cup, Spring Cup, and California Cup.

Polo Aviles, South Bay Matrix FC coach and Technical Program Director, as well as Asst. Coach Luis Rivera will be joining PSC as coaches for the Girls 2002 squad, which will compete in Coast’s Silver Elite bracket. Coach Aviles will continue serving as Technical Program Director of South Bay Matrix FC.

“We are looking to provide additional options for our teams and coaches,” Coach Aviles said. “Our aim is to provide more opportunities for soccer players, both competitively and recreationally. Our hope is that this relationship in the near future will also include boy’s teams under the PSC banner to compete in Coast Soccer League.”

2016 PSC G2002 SBBruce Bricks, the President of Pacific Soccer Club, said he is pleased to welcome Pacific SC South Bay to the club. “They will add another dimension to our club and provide players the opportunity to develop their skills further. Polo and his staff will also add coaching expertise to our program.”

South Bay AYSO has long fielded quality soccer teams, with coaches who have proven that volunteers can and do “make a difference.” South Bay Matrix was developed as the region’s competitive soccer option for players and coaches looking to grow their game. Coach Aviles’ squad has taken the program to yet another level.

“The core of this 2002 girls team won back-to-back championships in the San Diego Development Academy,” Millican said. “They have done all they can in San Diego. The team is the perfect candidate to pilot our partnership under the Pacific Soccer Club umbrella.”

This new structure will offer three playing options for each division:

  1. CSL – Silver/Silver Elite/Gold & someday Premier for the most competitive teams, which should also increase exposure on a regional and national basis and give players a chance to compete against top clubs. Entrance criteria for this league would be previous SDDA team with a level of success in their respective Flight 1 or 2 bracket.
  2. SDDA – The local premier league, which is the most competitive level in San Diego and gives teams exposure to National Cup. The highest platform for our local competitive teams.
  3. Presidio League – Competitive, which also gives our players a chance to compete in the bracket of their choice, but also gives players just entering the competitive level the chance to see if it is the right fit.
  4. AYSO Extra – A program that offers organized soccer for players who want to play at a more competitive level. Club soccer teams are in place in many parts of the country, but for those who want to play harder and still be a part of AYSO, EXTRA is a perfect starting point before transitioning to Presidio.

U12G Matrix Ready to Make a Statement

Fresh off a dominant performance in its most recent summer tournament, the U12G Matrix South Bay team is looking forward to the start of Presidio League play in September. Coach Hector Romo has his squad mixing impressive footwork and 2015081695145619fundamentals with the tactical know-how necessary for player growth and development. The girls went undefeated in bracket play in the Riptide Summer Classic on the weekend of August 15-16. In the tournament final, the South Bay squad defeated San Diego SC 4-1 to take home the hardware. Congratulations to the players and coaches!

U14G Matrix Elite: Still Tough to Beat!

South Bay AYSO’s GU14 Matrix Elite team fought to the end in each match this weekend in capturing the San Clemente Surf Summer Classic. The South Bay girls finished first in bracket play with two 1-0 matches. Then in the Semi-Final, they won 2-1 so set up a showdown in the final versus Inland Empire Surf. The Matrix Elite squad won in PKs 3-2, defeating an IE Surf team ranked 31st in the State. Matrix Elite also defeated IE Surf during last spring’s State Cup competition.

South Bay’s Matrix Elite team has won consecutive tournaments, part of the team’s preparation for the Fall 2015 San Diego Development Academy season that begins September 12. The teamwork has only increased in recent matches, even as the team has played with a target on its back considering the girls reached the finals of last year’s prestigious State Cup. Coach Polo Aviles said he could not be more proud of his 14 players—a committed and dedicated squad.IMG_0945

“I love these girls, they’ve given me the most precious moment in my coaching career during State Cup, and I’ve been coaching a long time, 20 plus years and counting,” Aviles said. “I need memories like this. They continue to work hard and apply what they have learned in their training sessions.”

Dream Season for U13G South Bay Matrix Elite Team Ends at US Youth Soccer Regionals

From start to finish, the U13G South Bay Matrix Elite team put together the greatest competitive soccer season in the history of South Bay AYSO. The ‘Dream Season’ of 2014-15 finally came to an end for our U13G team at the US Youth Soccer Regionals. Our girls dropped a tough one to Idaho Rush Premiere, 3-2, on Friday, June 12 in the state of Washington.

We are proud of this team. It earned a host of tournament finals and championships last summer, including the defeat of last year’s Nevada State Cup champion on Labor Day Weekend. The team followed that up with a first place finish in the San Diego Development Academy, and had a great run in making the finals of the State Cup in Cal South. Team officials were understandably disappointed at not advancing to the knockout round of the US Youth Soccer Region IV President’s Cup this week. Their bracket included FC Warriors Blue, which was again the Nevada state represenative, CalNorth Manteca Rangers, and Idaho Rush Premiere. The 4-0 victory over Manteca was the highlight. The overall experience had to have been incredible for the players, parents and coaches. While there is disappointment in today’s loss, there is also great hope for the future of this hard-working group of young ladies. Way to go South Bay!

U13G Matrix Elite are Headed to Regionals in Seattle!

Our GU13 Matrix Elite Academy team is this year’s 2015 CalSouth President State Cup Finalist. These talented young ladies now move on to compete in the US Youth Soccer Region IV Presidents Cup Championship Tournament, which takes place June 9-14 in Seattle, Washington.

We believe this is the first time in AYSO history that a team from the competitive program has reached Regional play. In fact, it’s been several years since a San Diego County team reaches the Regionals.

The event will feature Boys and Girls teams in the Under-13 through Under-17 age groups who will compete for a regional championship and a spot at the 2015 US Youth Soccer National Presidents Cup, July 9-12 in Overland Park, Kan. Please help sponsor our girls get to Washington.  Click on the following link:
