1/21/2015 History Project
  Our club has been around for over 40 years now. Unfortunately, we have not kept a history of our many achievements. If you have any history that you can contribute, a list of accomplishments, perhaps some pictures, please send them in to us so that we can add them in. You can view what we currently have by CLICKING HERE.
2/20/2015 Coaches Transporting Players
  It has come to our attention that our insurance provider does not cover any incident that involves transport to and from practices, games, or other functions. In the event there is an accident and a coach has a player in the vehicle, the coach's own insurance would be liable for costs. Stockton Storm / SYSA recommends that coaches either do not transport players or ensure that their own insurance is of such a value so as to cover such an eventuality. Coaches may also make use of waivers that they can have their own lawyers develop for them, however, as an organization we recommend either not transporting or increasing one's own insurance.

2/22/2015 Stockton Storm Girls Playing High School

We are always very proud of the results from our Storm teams, however, we are even prouder when our players do even better in the community. Here is a list of our players who have made their high school team:

From Stockton Storm FC 97 CLICK HERE

From Stockton Storm Earthquakes CLICK HERE

Congratulations to these remarkable young women and we hope that they have a great season.

2/16/2015 JJ Minor Results

Obviously we are always very proud of our teams that do well in our own tournaments, but in this case I am especially proud of the many people involved in making this tournament happen. Yes, many people were involved but the one person who is truly responsible for getting this tournament to happen was Gary Tacla who did all of our field bookings and negotiating. However, without the efforts and timer of the many venue managers (for whom I have received many compliments) the tournament would not have happened. Everyone involved with the organizing, scheduling, coaching, playing in this tournament needs to hearty thank you.

For our own teams results:

U19 Boys - Our Thunderbirds took first place. It was my first time watching them play, and although they were one of the youngest teams in the age group, their excellent passing and attitude won through.

U19 Boys - Rare Parts team had a third place finish after playing all games with less than 11 players. An awesome showing of the players that made the games. The team dealt with the lack of players in a positive manner and "took the game" to the opposition. No opponent left the field thinking that it was an easy game.

U18 Girls - Our FC 97 Girls took first place. The coach had this to say: "The Stockton Storm FC 97 (U-18 girls) won the championship at the JJ Minor Memorial tournament on February 14-15 at Stockton’s Lincoln High School. The Storm went undefeated in the preliminary rounds, defeating FC Elk Grove Elite 5-1, Empire 98 Blaze by a score of 4-0, and tied North Cal NorCal Elite 2-2. The Storm then put on a dominating performance in the championship game, posting a 3-1 win over NorCal Elite  The Storm played stifling defense, led by keeper Xyla Guerrero and fullbacks Monica Amezquita, Shelby Bartlett, Sarah Haley, Adele Looper, and Yesi Piceno. The Storm attack started from the fullbacks which led to dominating possession by midfielders Selena Almendarez, Monique Hernandez, Ireli Loyola, Yessenia Ramirez, Briana Rodriguez, and Emily Stein. Both the midfielders and forwards (Maria Cruz, Amber DeAnda, Nicole Gomez, Kiera Muniz, Gianna Puccinelli, and Sydney Quinones) tested the opposing keepers in each game with well placed shots, and with some exceptional finishing. Although not eligible to play, in support of their team were injured player Mattie Mierkey and teammates Arianna Ramirez and Ashley Rojo. Coaches Chris Viri indicated that “I am very proud of the beautiful soccer that the Storm girls played all weekend.” Coach Luis Cruz added, “after being off from game action for about two months, the team came out and put on a great show for our parents and coaches to enjoy.”

U15 Girls - Our Earthquakes team took a second place after a very well fought championship game. The difference came down to a penalty given. It is always a pleasure to watch such great soccer, where the players focus on the game.

U14 Boys - Our Stockton FC team ended up with a third place and their coach reports two important items. Firstly that he was so proud of the players and their efforts and secondly, that the team earned positive comments from their opponents after hard fought for games.

U13 Boys - The Blue Angels took home first place after a series of great games. Again it was my first time watching them play and I was so very impressed with their skills and game management.

Deserving of an honorable mention are our U10 Boys Earthquakes and U10 Girls Tempests who ended up not being able to play because of a lack of registrations in their age groups.

1/18/2015 What sort of parent are you?

The information below has been copied and modified from another organization across the waters in Ireland. It is very evident that all clubs the world over are battling with the same problem - RESPECT for the game and RESPECT for each other.

Please view an interesting video by CLICK HERE - The link is to a series of short videos. Well worth watching for all adults planning on attending youth soccer games. As it states in the one of the videos - "Take a good look at yourself."

Bottom line is that our players are NOT EPL level players, our coaches are NOT internationally recognized, and our referees are NOT professionals being paid hundreds of thousands a year. Allow your child and other youth to make mistakes, whether they be players or referees.

Please make your goal at your child's next game to be a great role model to all concerned, allow for errors.

1/14/2015 Coaching or Playing Competitive Soccer

Are you interested in playing or coaching with the biggest soccer family in Stockton? Then contact us ASAP.


Contact a coach and organize a try out. To get a coaches name. CLICK HERE to download our player / team formation policy for competitive teams.


We are always looking for coaches at any level. If you are a coach and would like to coach in a club that has multiple State Cup trophies, the largest number of teams in Stockton, the only club to offer soccer for all levels of players, and the longest serving (since 1971) then you should come in and talk with us - we will do our best to make it work.

Stockton Storm is also the only Stockton Club that offers both CYSA and US Club affiliation to all teams. The team gets to decide which organization to register with, or you can register with both.

1/21/2015 Board Positions Open That Need To Be Filled

We are looking for people to fill the presently open position. These are all volunteer positions:

Treasurer / Bookkeeper - Our current Treasurer stepped in to fill a needed position but is an extremely busy person. Our books are kept in QuickBooks (training will be provided to the right person), basic knowledge of accounting is needed, and the time to enter transactions, develop reports and attend meetings. This is a great opportunity for some one interested in learning QuickBooks and general bookkeeping.

PAD Chairperson - Every once in a while some one does something wrong and we need to hold investigative hearings. This person needs to be organized, able to maintain confidential information, and be able to keep control of a meeting. Time commitment is usually a couple of hearings a season.

BML Coordinator - Each year our recreational players have to opportunity during the winter season to form teams that play through out our area. We need some one who is organized and can devote some time to setting this all up. The person would set up a committee to select coaches (assistance is available here), correspond with District (usually via email but there are usually two meetings to attend in Manteca), and correspond with BML coaches regarding schedules, teams, and other concerns. 

1/5/2015 BML Schedules Released

The provisional game schedules have been released. There are already two sets of changes that I know of (1) The U12Boys schedule has got to be changed to add in a Tracy team and (2) the games for this weekend in Stockton have to be changed as the County decided to make use of soft grounds and do some much needed maintenance - Games in STOCKTON on 10 JANUARY have been moved to 24 JANUARY with some different times.

The game schedules list the team titles but not which coach has which team - this information is found in the second file. To download the files click on the link. Please note that there is no ranking of teams (team 1 is not the best team etc) the naming was done arbitrarily.

BML GAME SCHEDULES - in Excel Format



All Stockton games will be played at the Arch Road Sports Complex between the Stockton Airport and Highway 99  ($2 parking fee)

Weekend Game Location Maps can be found by CLICKING HERE

10/06/2014 Have some free time - be a board member or assist in other ways
We are always looking for people to help us provide soccer to the youth of Stockton. We need volunteers to do major work and to do small tasks. If you can help in any way, please contact us, on 472-9166 when the office is open.
4/8/2014 So you want to know the rules of soccer!
  Have you ever wondered why a certain call was being made, or what it is that the coach was up to? By CLICKING HERE you can read up on some basics regarding the game that you are watching. Even if you have been around soccer for years, remember the rules change.
6/17/2013 First Aid

If you have been hurt out at one of our games at Arch Road, then you have probably met with one of our First Aid crew. We would like to share a little more information regarding this. The First Aid crew are not a paid body. Each and every one of them from Peter Sturdevant who head's the team down to the lowest runner, are donating their time, efforts and skills to making our organization a little safer. When you meet up with one of those "yellow shirts" please give them a thank you for their efforts - a lot of people have been helped by this crew.

SYSA is extremely lucky to have such a wonderful bunch of people. As those who travel to other cities for soccer can attest, other leagues do not have a First Aid station as it is not mandated by CYSA.

In addition, there are the back ground support people. The people who have been supplying the needs of the station (Click on the links to gain more information):

Stronger Fitness Group on March Lane - take a look at their Summer Camp

Dr Manshadi - who has a AED waiting for us - which is great for people with a heart problem. Dr Manshadi is able to offer this vital piece of equipment through the sale of his book - "The Wisdom of Heart Health"

Manshadi Medical Supply and Equipment - Located on Pacific Avenue in Stockton

Suite 200
555 W Ben Holt Drv
