8/29/2015 EXTREMELY important County Meeting - Thursday 3 September

Some people on arriving at Arch Road today received a card inviting people to attend a meeting with the County Board of Supervisor and the Director of General Services. This has come about due to the actions of those who have contacted the County. Now we need two things from every person concerned about the playing conditions offered by the County:

(1) Attend the announced meeting on Thursday 3 September at the Arch Road Soccer Fields – I am told that there will be no parking fee. The meeting starts at 5:30PM and is planned to end at 6:30.

(2) Continue to call the county letting them know that they have to improve the Arch Road fields and show us a benefit from the parking fee. The Board of Directors contact details can be found at

We need as many people as possible to attend the Thursday meeting. If we have a bad turn out it will show the County that people are happy with the conditions. You do not need to talk; just your presence would be great. If you could please bring players, dressed in soccer uniform, then this would have a great impact. Coaches who hold practice on a Thursday night please cancel practice and encourage all players and their families to attend the meeting.

Please invite all friends and others interested in getting a decent set of fields at Arch Road.

8/16/2015 Team Report - Stockton Storm 04G - Stormettes

Coach Santiago sent in this report.

The Stormettes won 1st place at Soccer by the Bay!! This was the team's first tournament together as a competitive team!! Congratulations to those girls. Looking forward to many more wins.


8/16/2015 Team Report - Stockton Storm 05G - Tempest

This report was sent in about two weeks ago but I have been distracted by too many things going on. Better late than never, and we are always proud of our teams performances. Coach Chris sent in the following report

I'm pleased to report that the Stockton Storm 05G Tempest won our division in Breakers Cup. A quick writeup for the website is below and a picture attached.

This past weekend in Santa Cruz, CA, Stockton Storm 05G Tempest earned a hard fought first place trophy at the popular Breakers Cup tournament.

Playing in the U11 Bronze division, Storm Tempest outscored their opponents 11 - 2 with three shutouts. The final against Sonoma FC Revolution was even, with both teams creating a couple dangerous chances early. The first half ended 0-0 with neither team able to break down the opposing defense.

Storm Tempest finally broke through several minutes into the second half when right back, Marianna Gallardo, saw the opportunity to press forward. She scored on a looping volley that snuck in just between the cross bar and the goalkeepers outstreched fingertips. The game ended 1-0 with Stockton Storm as the winner!


8/10/2015 Support for the We Play Indoor Soccer Complex

On Thursday evening We Play was approved by the County Planning Commission. It was really great to see the turn out in support of this venture. The journey is not over yet but a serious milestone was passed. We encourage all of our members to continue to spread the word and support We Play. We need places in Stockton where kids can be safe and have something of which they can be proud.

7/27/2015 Concussion Awareness

Concussions are a hot topic right now and deservedly so. A concussion may not only have a short term influence but can also lead to major problems many years later for our kids. Whether you are a coach or a parent it is your responsibility to watch out for the safety of all youth. Thus we recommend that all adults, and older players, take a course on concussions. The course that US YOUTH soccer recommends right now can be found at ( - CLICK HERE).

During a game or a practice coaches may miss a head blow, or a severe "body check" - just because the coach  missed it does not mean that you cannot bring the incident to their attention. The winning of a game is not worth a lifetime of headaches for a player.

7/19/2015 Fall Recreational Registration
Our online registration is now closed. We do continue to take registrations in the office, however, late registrations will be used to fill
existing teams. Players who register late will be placed according to need and not according to request. Once a team is full (number
of field players plus 4) no more players will be added to a team without the approval of the head coach. The coach does not get to
choose whether to accept a particular player or not but will advise the office that the team can have further players added and then
the office or AGC will determine which player gets added.
Coaches who try to determine (for any reason) who is to be registered on the team is a violation of the recreational policy from CYSA.
7/01/2015 Stockton Storm FC Tempest U10 Girls Take First Place

On Sunday, June 21st Stockton Storm FC Tempest won the CUFA (Coming Up for Air) Tournament in South Lake Tahoe.  After placing second in several tournaments

last year, the girls were thrilled to celebrate a first place win in an exciting 2 – 1 game against Pacific FC Crush.

7/01/2015 We Play Indoor Soccer Complex Hassles

SYSA / Stockton Storm has been continually hounding both city and county officials trying to get some decent playing facilities. Now Jason and MichelleGonzalez have started up their own facility. After dealing with all sorts of issues with getting county approval they are now stumped by a local business who seems to think that our youth do not need soccer facilities. CLICK HERE to down load a letter of explanation from Jason and Michelle. We ask all of our members to contact the county and even to attend the county hearing (possibly July 16, details will be made available as they become available).

Regardless what your club affiliation may be, some one wanting to improve the local facilities for Stockton Youth has got to be close to your heart.

5/12/2015 Stockton's Own Indoor Soccer Facility
  We are eagerly awaiting the opening of Stockton's own indoor soccer complex. Track this facility as it nears completion by liking them on facebook (, while there, like our page too (
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.

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

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:

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. 

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"
