If you will be unable to attend this weekend’s competition or don’t see your son’s name listed on the roster please email Coach Barnea (email).

Please note: If you son does not have a headshot already loaded onto his USWP Membership, he will need to bring a picture ID as referees will be doing verified roster checks to make sure all athletes have current USWP membership. Athletes without a valid ID or USWP membership will not be allowed to play in the games.

14&U Head To Newport Invitational: The 14&U Red team will head down to Orange County this weekend to participate in the 1st Annual Newport Beach Invitational, where they take on some of the top clubs in Southern California. Good Luck and Go Stanford!
