SDDA Champs: South Bay B2005

The Boys 2005 South Bay Matrix team coached by Ramiro Ramirez took first place in the San Diego Development Academy Flight 2 Gold Division. Coach Ramirez recently shared the excitement of receiving the team’s SDDA championship medals.

“This is for everyone!” Coach Ramirez said. “Thanks goes out to Director of Coaching Polo Aviles for sharing his knowledge with us. He passes on everything he learns at AYSO United to our coaching staff. Thanks also to SB Matrix Coordinator Anthony Millican and South AYSO Regional Commissioner Marco Beltran for all the administrative support.

“And kudos and thanks to all the coaches on our South Bay staff. I definitely learn from all of them. I watch their training sessions and take away something I can use every time. Go South Bay!” 

South Bay Matrix B2005 followed up its impressive Fall 2019 SDDA season by reaching the finals of the 2019 Las Vegas Thanksgiving Classic.

“This used to be just a fun trip,” Coach Ramirez said. “We would win one game and get blown out all the other games every year. The competition was so fierce. This year we are competing. Three wins and a tie gave us a chance for another championship.”

Although the South Bay boys lost in the tournament final, the effort was followed by additional individual accomplishments. A number of the boys made it on to their respective high school soccer squads.

“When they started the tryouts, I thought they would take one or two of my boys because there was a lot of competition,” Coach Ramirez said. “There were bigger and faster kids. But day after day I saw them weed out players that perhaps didn’t have the same desire or knowledge. So I have to say this is a proud moment for South Bay.”

DOC Aviles praised Coach Ramirez for his willingness to learn and apply his knowledge in his training sessions. “That is where matches are won and lost,” Aviles said. “Ramiro is a teacher by profession, and it shows in his ability to transfer his knowledge to his players. His boys have a great understanding of the tactical side of the game, as well as the skills necessary to compete among the higher levels of youth soccer.”

Teamwork: B2010 Earns Presidio Medals, Looks to State Cup

For the second consecutive season, South Bay Matrix B2010 earned a top two finish in the Presidio League. The highly skillful squad ended its 2019 Fall Presidio season with an impressive defeat of Albion. The South Bay boys put on a display of footwork and teamwork, wowing spectators, which included another club’s director of coaching.

“Made in the South Bay is not just a slogan, it’s a way of soccer life here,” said Anthony Millican, South Bay Matrix coordinator. “This team worked hard to achieve its goals. Talent only goes so far. It is the time spent on the practice pitch between the matches that decides the outcome, and it is clear they put in the work.

The time the squad has spent honing ball control has paid off in just its second season of competitive soccer. The squad is coached by Hector Romo, who is preparing the team for the State Cup opening weekend of January 18-19, 2020. Coach Romo is a veteran South Bay coach, who also helps lead our AYSO Jamboree program—our youngest players.

“We’re proud of what this team accomplished so far. They’re fun to watch, and we look forward to boys’ continued development of their skills,” Millican said.

Coach Romo announced open tryouts for his team for the Fall 2020 season. For more

South Bay Girls Reach USYS Far West Finals

South Bay’s G2002 team fell 1-0 to Las Vegas on Sunday in the championship match of U.S. Youth Soccer’s Far West Presidents Cup. But the South Bay girls won anyway. They won our hearts. And on the way to playing its sixth match in as many days in Salt Lake City, Utah, the team struck a blow for AYSO competitive teams everywhere. Coach Polo Aviles and his 16U squad are believed to be the first AYSO-affiliated team to advance so deeply into regionals. The girls showed “Dad Coaches” are winners indeed. They do it for love of the game, not a paycheck. On Father’s Day, what more beautiful message is that? Congratulations, Coach Polo and South Bay girls. You made us proud. #MadeInTheSouthBay, and @CalSouthSoccer reigning 16U State Cup Champions. @AYSO_Soccer @sdutzeigler

South Bay Teams Dominate Memorial Weekend Tournaments

South Bay Matrix competitive soccer teams put on an impressive show over the holiday weekend, with six teams making the finals of Memorial Day tournaments. As of press time, at least two champions were crowned. Overall, the following South Bay teams made finals: B2007 (Memorial Day Super Cup Champions), G2004 (Memorial Day Super Cup Champions), B2005 (Memorial Day Super Cup Finalist), G2006 (Poway Country Shootout Finalist), B2009 (Memorial Day Super Cup Finalist), G2002 (Albion Las Vegas Memorial Cup Finalist). South Bay Matrix is the competitive soccer arm of South Bay AYSO. “We only have eight teams overall, and to have six of them make tournament finals in one weekend is an impressive accomplishment,” said Anthony Millican, South Bay Matrix Coordinator.

South Bay teams have a noticeable style of play, blending skillful soccer with tactical awareness. An example is B2007, which is coached by father and son combination Jose Govea and Jose Antonio Govea, respectively. The younger Govea was a South Bay AYSO standout in his youth, and is passing on his soccer knowledge to a new generation of South Bay players. The B2007 won their tournament final 3-2 vs. GPS SD, with a “golden goal” in the waning minutes of sudden death overtime.

South Bay’s G2004 and B2009 teams are coached by Hector Romo, whose girls cruised to a 4-1 victory over Santee Matrix and whose boys lost a nail-biter in overtime on a golden goal.

South Bay’s G2002 team is building momentum for its second appearance in the Far West Regional Championships in three years. The reigning CalSouth State Cup Presidents Division Champions start play the Regionals in Salt Lake City starting on June 12. As part of its preparations, the team entered the Albion Las Vegas Memorial Cup tournament for the long weekend. The South Bay girls reached finals, which were to be played at 12:30 p.m. Monday, and the results were not known at press time.

“The G2002 team is so dominant, we needed to place them in the Coast Soccer League the last two seasons, which is the gaming circuit north of San Diego County,” Millican said. “Their games are in Orange County, and the Inland Empire because there was no competition left for them in San Diego County.”

Nearly all of South Bay’s G2002 squad consists of “home grown” players developed in South Bay AYSO Region 712, from South San Diego and Imperial Beach. Coach Polo Aviles himself is a Mar Vista High alumnus. Winning the State Cup was an incredible accomplish, a first for South Bay Matrix.

The South Bay girls are pioneering in another sense as well. They will play under the new “AYSO United” brand, in South Orange County. AYSO United is AYSO’s official club program, where players are selected through a tryout. Once selected, players are guaranteed 50 percent of playing time. Players will also enjoy a more advanced play, participate in intense competition and receive cutting-edge training while still enjoying the benefits of AYSO and its Six Philosophies.

The G2002 team is actively fundraising for assistance in travel costs associated with the Far West Regionals. To help the team with a donation, please contact Luisa Dasis at ldasis@cox.net

South Bay Matrix FC Partners with AYSO United

South Bay Matrix FC is proud to announce a collaboration with AYSO United that will enable South Bay’s highest caliber teams to participate in Coast Soccer League. AYSO United is the AYSO Competitive Club Soccer program Nation Wide.  AYSO United has boys and girls teams that compete across the US.  South Bay Matrix FC who want to play in Coast Soccer League (CSL) may do so by forming part of the Orange County hub.

“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 county 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 AYSO United was founded 5 years ago as part of a third, elite Club-style tier to the AYSO organization, it has grown to involve boys and girls teams from across the country from Orange County in the west coast to NYC in the east coast. With the addition of South Bay Matrix, AYSO United will now extend its program to south San Diego.

SB Matrix FC will work closely with AYSO United Club’s directors and coaching staff in implementing United’s training plan to enhance the development of players’ skills and technical abilities. The partnership started with a single team: the newly formed 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 Nicole Thomas have joined AYSO United as coaches for the Girls 2002 squad, which has been competing in Coast’s Silver Elite & Gold bracket the past 4 years. 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 AYSO United banner to compete in Coast Soccer League.”

Tony Zermeno, DOC of AYSO United South OC, said he is pleased to welcome South Bay Matrix FC 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 AYSO United 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.
